– Boxing promoter Lou DiBella called out WWE over using Nia Jax in the men’s Royal Rumble match:
Consider, the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that 2/3rds of victims of spousal violence report that the perpetrator had been drinking. I didn’t read the whole study, but I’m pretty sure pro-wrestling didn’t appear in the stats.

Pro wrestling is not “the” or even “a” cause of violence against women. Never said that. Don’t think a woman, whether Nia or someone less physically imposing, should be televised taking four finishing moves from a male wrestler. Last I’m saying on this.
