SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch sustained a broken face and severe concussion from Nia Jax during SmackDown LIVE Women’s division invasion of Monday Night Raw.
As a result, Lynch will no longer be facing Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey this Sunday at Survivor Series.
During Tuesday’s SmackDown LIVE, Lynch chose Charlotte Flair to replace her in the Raw vs. SmackDown match against Rousey on Sunday.
Reacting to the news, Rousey wrote the following on Instagram:
“I’m really sorry to hear The Millennial Man will not be showing up for her legally arranged ass whooping on November 18th at the Staples Center,” Rousey wrote, which includes a screenshot of a tweet UFC fighter Nate Diaz made last month that reads, “If u can’t make it to war u lose the war
U ain’t bout this life…”
Rousey continued, “Unfortunately now everyone knows if someone hauls off and punches you for real, your face implodes. I suggest you keep practicing your tough guys faces in the mirror, should be very effective physical therapy.
“And have fun watching Korean soap operas on Netflix or whatever the hell the Millennial Man does with her free time. Don’t worry I’m not the back stabbing cheap shotting ambushing cowardly type, so you’re perfectly safe to take your time and heal up until your figurative balls have dropped and you’re finally ready for your comeuppance. I want you 100% healed up, prepared, and looking me in the eye when the bell rings. Lemmie know when you’re done healing your boo boos and ready for me to serve you your ass on a silver platter with your avocado toast.
“I do have to admit, The Millennial Man is stunningly conniving. She poked the bear and ran like a bat outta hell when the bear awoke – Feeding me her favorite frienemy and fellow #FAUXhorsewoman @charlottewwe is a new level of manipulative cowardice, even for The Millennial Man. @charlottewwe is a Superfight and I’ve always wanted to fight her – but she’s just the stand in for the beating @beckylynchwwe has coming to her this Sunday. I’ll be sending The Champ a choice piece of Charlotte as a souvenir🖕🏼 #RondaVsCharlotte #SurvivorSeries #Nov18 #4horsewomenVSfauxhorsewomen.”
Lynch fired back at Rousey with this tweet.
Ronnie, TL/DR. When I got my face broke I got up, owned you THEN showed up the next day looking to fight some more. When you got your face broke you hid for a year under your blankie. Your mind is as weak as your jaw, & I’m going to move heaven & earth to come destroy them both. https://t.co/8oDubzNYr4

Rousey took to Instagram on Wednesday to respond to Lynch’s tweet.
She wrote, “Sucker punched? I’m gunna skip past the blatant hypocrisy of the chick who literally ambushed me with my pants down in the locker room and hit me with a chair while my back was turned complaining about getting blindsided and point out something else extremely obvious. You were punching Nia in the back of the head and she turned around and laid you out with one half closed fist. 🤔 You had the jump on all of us at #Raw and walked out with a broken face and a severe concussion acting like you’re the biggest badass on earth. And the next day YOU backed out of our match. That’s some #BackwardsBullshitBecky We both know you came to Raw looking for a reason to back out. Keep clutching your Dr’s note, in the meantime I’ll be proving to the world @charlottewwe bleeds red just like everyone else. #RondaVsCharlotte #SurvivorSeries #Nov18.”
Lynch continues to troll Rousey on Twitter. She changed her bio to “Smackdown women’s champion who ☠️☠️☠️’s Ronnie almost daily on Twitter and Instagram. No, it’s daily actually.” She also trolled Funko’s announcement on the first Ronda Rousey POP! Vinyl Figure.
I already own Ronda Rousey.

Rousey responded to Lynch with the following:
@BeckyLynchWWE Sit down, no one’s talking to you. you pulled out of this fight remember? @MsCharlotteWWE tell your friend #TheMillennialMan to take another sip of kombucha and keep healing her face while the real women throw down #Nov18 at #SurvivorSeries #RondaVsCharlotte
