Don’t let Nia Jax get ahold of New Day’s pancakes

A perk of Mixed Match Challenge, at least for some of the talent, is the chance for Raw and SmackDown stars to catch up with friends and former co-workers with whom they don’t normally travel.

For the folks backstage at the taping last night (Feb. 20) in Phoenix, they might wish Nia Jax had gone ahead and hit the road after destroying Asuka on Monday. But since she was around for her match with Apollo against Bobby Roode and Charlotte Flair for the Facebook Watch show, Jax got her hands on some New Day’s props. And, well, no one was safe...

The worst may have been when she got poor Chad Gable, who may have thought the lone bright side to his and Shelton Benjamin’s loss to Bid E and Xavier Woods on Tuesday was an end to dealing with flapjacks follies:

At least Chad would agree this guy deserved it:

He deserved it! @wwe_danilo

The Tuesday night crew should be safe from this scourge now that Jax has been eliminated from the MMC. Although there’s always that second chance spot in the bracket... and every pay-per-view (PPV) from WrestleMania 34 forward.
