Ouch. Wrestling is a physical sport and that can cause problems every now and then. You can see all kinds of injuries take place in wrestling at any time and they can come in a few different ways. Some of them are going to be a lot more obvious than others and you can tell what happens almost immediately. That was the case this week and it was a pretty nasty incident.

Nia Jax was cut open during this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw. During a match with Rhea Ripley, Jax was elbowed in the face next to her left eye, drawing blood. The bleeding got worse throughout the match, ultimately causing the entire side of her face to be nearly covered in blood. Jax was able to finish the match, with Ripley winning and attacking Jax again after the match was over. There is nothing to suggest that Jax will miss any time.

It was a nasty cut. Check out two looks at the match, plus how karma might be catching up with Jax:

Rhea Ripley vs. Nia Jax: Raw, Aug. 2, 2021

Becky Lynch leads a SmackDown Women's invasion: Raw, Nov. 12, 2018

Opinion: This is one of those fluke accidents that can happen to anyone as Ripley just caught her with a shot to the face. Jax seemed fine enough and a stitch or two should take care of everything. Jax is one of the most unique people in the division and in WWE whatsoever, so it would be quite the hit to Monday Night Raw to have her miss any kind of time.

What did you think of the match? What should Jax do next? Let us know in the comments below.
