It might be a little while. Injuries take place all the time in wrestling and that is never a good thing. Sometimes someone is going to be forced out of action and the question becomes just how long they will be missing. There are a lot of legitimate injuries but sometimes a promotion uses a fake one to get someone off of television. Another wrestler is going on the shelf, though it could be for either reason.

This week on Monday Night Raw, Shayna Baszler defeated Nia Jax in a match that lasted less than three minutes. Following the match, Baszler crushed Jax’s arm in the steps and stomped on it to further the damage. During this week’s edition of the Bump, an announcement revealed that Jax had suffered a fractured and dislocated elbow, both of which will require surgery. It is not clear how long Jax will be out of action or why she is going on the shelf.

Baszler looked like a monster. Check out her beatdown of Jax plus some of her other dominant moments:

Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on with Jax but hopefully this is just an angle rather than writing her out for a legitimate injury. Jax could probably use some time away from television, though it remains to be seen just how long she is going to be out of action. If nothing else, Baszler came off like a killer in the segment and that is something she has been needing for a long time.

What did you think of the angle? What should Jax do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
