Nia Jax is once again being slammed by WWE fans after appearing to injure her opponent with the latest in a string of botched moves.

Jax has come under fire in the past for messing up scripted stunts, with a number of her fellow stars voicing their concerns.

And the concerns only grew on Monday when Jax botched another move while in action against Kairi Sane on RAW.

After lifting her opponent into the air, Jax was supposed to throw Sane into the corner and let her land on her feet against the turnbuckles.

However Jax’s throw came up short and Sane’s neck hit the bottom rope, snapping her head back frighteningly.

Sane was left on the mat in pain for a number of scary seconds before she managed to continue the match.

However fans were less than impressed with Jax.

One viewer wrote on Twitter: “This woman is a menace, a f***ing menace, absolutely careless with no regard for the safety of her coworkers.”

Another fan wrote: “She either needs to get knocked back down to NXT to improve her work or she needs to be cut in general.

“Her track record of injuring people is too lengthy, something needs to be done about it.”

Others described her as a “liability” and “dangerous”.

Nia Jax recently called out ‘unsafe’ co-worker

The 35-year-old, real name Savelina Fanene, has been criticised by the likes of Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Ember Moon and Zelina Vega in the past.

Ironically, Jax recently opened up about how she complained to WWE bosses about a fellow athlete continually injuring Bliss.

“I’m not going to mention any names, but Lexi [Alexa Bliss] – was working an angle and she was continuously getting hurt, in an angle with somebody. And I remember her not saying anything, specifically because she wanted to be a team player,” Jax said.

“Like, she was so nervous, she didn’t want to be somebody like ‘Oh, I can’t do this’ but me, personally, from the outside looking in, I was so angry. I was like ‘No, she cannot do this anymore’.

“I would personally not allow her to get back in the ring to get hurt again. I had to go to the people, the higher-ups, and I had to put down a stern foot and say ‘listen, Lexi is five-foot-nothing, 100lbs, getting thrown around like a little rag doll and getting injured every night’.”
