After their physical altercation on WWE Raw the night after the Royal Rumble, it appears that Dean Ambrose and Nia Jax are set to continue squaring off, at least when it comes to untelevised events.
One Twitter user tweeted a snippet of a commercial from the Jonesboro, AR market, promoting a match between Ambrose and Jax for a live event taking place in the city on Friday, February 22. The match is being advertised as an “Intergender Special Attraction.”
WWE has largely outlawed intergender physicality since changing over to advertiser-friendlier guidelines in 2008, with very few exceptions, such as incidental contact. That’s why Jax’s participation in the men’s Royal Rumble match this year felt like a revelation, as Jax physically mixed it up with Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Dolph Ziggler, and Mustafa Ali during her brief time in the match.
Ambrose has, as previously noted, given WWE his notice that he will be leaving the company at the expiration of his contract toward the end of April. Ambrose reportedly gave his notice on the same day that he and Jax ended up having their initial altercation on Raw.
