Nia Jax's vicious punch to Becky Lynch on Monday Night Raw has really caused a stir amongst many WWE fans.

When the close-up footage was revealed on SmackDown Live, calls for Jax's release or demotion to the Performance Centre were loud and clear, as she ruined a huge match for Survivor Series - accident or not.

And Jax really stirred the pot by posting a tweet that incurred the wrath of many Becky fans, garnering over 4,000 replies on Twitter.

Whether or not it was posted purely to further a potential storyline between the two down the line, many thought it was an arrogant move from the former Raw Women's Champion.

Regardless, Jax killed off what was clearly the most hyped bout for this Sunday's event, although it could end up being a blessing in disguise for Lynch who now may get her WrestleMania moment against the UFC Hall of Famer instead.

Jax obviously now has heat with backstage personnel over the incident, and considering it isn't the first time she's hurt someone in the ring or been reckless, you have to wonder what her future entails on the main roster.

One man who pulls no punches when it comes to speaking up is Chris Jericho, who's revealed his true thoughts about the incident on his 'Talk Is Jericho' podcast this week.

"If you see the punch that she took, oh my gosh - it didn't look like a potato [botch]," said Jericho, via Fightful.

Nia Jax has allegedly received heat backstage for injuring Becky Lynch just days before Survivor Series.

"It looked like a legitimate, deliberate punch to the face. But, whatever, we'll hold off on judgment for that."

Later in the podcast, Jericho speculated that Jax does indeed have heat with officials backstage, which several journalists have since confirmed.

How does one argue with the self-proclaimed 'Greatest Of All Time' when it comes to wrestling matters? If Jericho thinks it looked legit, then it was legit.

Jax is supposed to have a title shot coming up against Ronda Rousey so we will see if that still goes ahead after what happened - but if wrestling royalty are calling you out, then you know a situation is serious.
