Joey Ryan is not comedy. What he does is a disgrace to the business and its legacy.

I'm on the Jim Cornette side of the Joey Ryan issue. And the fact that Impact Wrestling not only signed him but sanctioned his behavior, spits on all of the careers of all of the performers who ever worked there. Much of who I really liked.

Joey Ryan has been accused of 17 accounts of sexual assault. Impact Wrestling has dismissed him. He has closed up his own wrestling promotion. Is being scrubbed from all of AEW media, And issued a public apology. Which to me isn't enough.

Looks like Nia Jax may have climbed onto this list and been fired for it. Shes apparently gotten into a habit of badly injuring her fellow wrestlers with poor ring work
Dr. Silverback has wryly observed that this is like trying to teach lolcats about Shakespeare

Oh yeah, it's apparently been bad for a long time, and she just hurt Kairi Sane, for example.

I haven't heard of her being fired, though, and I'm on a blog where such news would be celebrated for WEEKS.

Unfortunately, Nia Jax has now injured multiple other wrestlers-Charlotte (the latest injury is kayfabe, the legit one happened a couple years back and wasn't serious), Ember Moon (who is still out of action), Becky Lynch (though in that case it helped make her career-Becky's toughness in getting up and finishing the bit with a broken nose and blood smeared face was MASSIVE with fans), and now Kairi Sane for the second time.

At this point, it kind of seems obvious Nia is being protected because of who her family is (not just Dwayne Johnson but the entire Samoan family that produced the Usos and their dad Rikishi, Roman Reigns, and a lot of past stars) and that she's an attractive big girl, a former BBW model.

But...Nia was a former BBW MODEL, not a female power lifter, collegiate wrestler, judoka, or strongwoman. Her athletic background is high school and collegiate basketball, which made use of her height (not terribly tall for women's basketball, but 6 feet is decent for non-elite programs), and obviously she's gained a good bit of weight since then. She obviously has some natural size and strength from her ethnic heritage, and certainly she trains with weights now, but she really isn't the powershouse she gets billed as, and likely just can't pull off moves that women like Awesome Kong, Beth Phonenix, or the late Chyna could do. And she doesn't seem like a natural in the ring, hence multiple injured opponents in a pretty short span of time. She has really developed a poor reputation for this VERY quickly.
