Becky Lynch and the SmackDown Live women’s division invaded Monday Night Raw this week, inciting a riot that provided us with one of the biggest talking points of the year so far.

“A source close to the situation has told WNS that the decision was in reaction to the Jax/Lynch situation and was drawn up to create interest for Sunday’s Survivor Series. Vince and WWE producer Kevin Dunn are reportedly extremely unhappy with Jax and her current push will be scaled back or halted altogether.”
Jax, of course, won the Battle Royal at Evolution to earn the right to challenge for Ronda Rousey’s Raw Women’s Championship once Survivor Series is out of the way. Now, it appears her status as the next big feud for The Baddest Woman On The Planet is more than a little up in the air.
