During the men’s Royal Rumble matchup this past Sunday, R-Truth would never get the opportunity to fulfil his hard-earned #30 spot. This was due to Nia Jax assaulting him during his entrance before inserting herself into the fray.
According to a recent report by Rajah.com, Nia Jax was a bit too violent during the attack, legitimately injuring R-Truth’s ankle and face. This has led there to be some supposed heat between R-Truth and Jax.
WWE spun this incident into a backstage segment for WWE.com where he attempted to find her accompanied by Titus O’Neil.
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawyer has corroborated this during his podcast, Dinner With The King Podcast.
“And this got real heat for real,” said Lawlor. “She blasted poor R-Truth and knocked him face-first into that wall. He was hot, for real hot. They were having to hold him back there. She made it look good.”
R-Truth earned his spot as the number 30 entrant. This was done when he and Carmella would emerge victorious in WWE’s recent Mixed Match Challenge tournament. They would win an all-expenses-paid vacation to anywhere in the world. R-Truth would surprise Carmella with a trip to WWE’s headquarters in Stamford.
