Things got serious really quick on Twitter after Becky Lynch took a shot (storyline, of course) at Lacey Evans ahead of their match at Sunday’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
As you can see below, Nia Jax chimed in and she ripped Lynch for “tanking ratings” and making her belts “completely irrelevant.”
So, why did Jax say this to Lynch? It was a response to a tweet by Evans posting a video of herself using Lynch’s “The Man” shirt to clean a toilet.
Here’s the video and response from Lynch to Evans:

Here is the response from Jax:
Bitch, go back to tanking ratings and making your two “belts” completely irrelevant. While you’re at it, have @LaceyEvansWWE teach you how to take a proper shower, you moldy cabbage smelling ginger https://t.co/ZSsUCHgwkT

For those of you wondering, the toilet reference from Lynch started back in November after Lynch was pulled from Survivor Series because of a potato punch from Jax. Here’s her tweet from November 2018:
Unrelated to anything, but in Ireland the slang word for ‘toilet’ is ‘Jax.’

So, why are Jax and Lynch going at it on Twitter if Jax is going to be out of action for a long time after double ACL surgery?
What we do know (via Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer) is that neither Charlotte Flair or Ronda Rousey are in the plans to be Lynch’s opponent at WrestleMania 36 and WWE has an opponent in mind for Lynch. Perhaps, this is the set up for a match for when Jax returns?
Remember, WWE has not booked Lynch vs. Jax yet since the potato punch so that score still needs to be settled. This is all speculation and we might not know anything for sure until early 2020 when the WrestleMania hype begins.
