It has been six times in a row now that Nia Jax has put Lana through the commentator’s table. On this week’s episode of WWE RAW, Lana won a Fatal Four-way match against Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross, and Peyton Royce to secure her position in the RAW Women’s team for Survivor Series.
Women’s tag team Champions Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax were already announced to be on the team. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke joined them soon afterwards. After Lana won the match to become the fifth and final member of the team, Nia Jax pretended to congratulate her with a hug but once again picked her up and drove her through a table with the Samoan Drop.

Lana on why Nia Jax is picking on her
After the show went off air, Lana was interviewed backstage about her win. When asked about the condition of her back, she said
“Well, when a 300-pound Samoan is doing her Samoans and putting me through commentary tables, obviously it hurts a lot. But I just keep on getting back up.”
She was also asked how they plan on working together on Survivor Series, now that Nia Jax has picked on her six times back to back. Lana said she did not have any answers for Nia’s brutal attacks. She pointed out that she has been doing this since Royal Rumble, when Jax took out a limping Lana and led to Becky Lynch taking her place and eventually winning and main-eventing at WrestleMania.
“I don’t know what her problem is. Maybe because I have more Instagram followers than her? I literally don’t know why. I have only been nice to her. I have only bought her clothes. I just don’t know. I wish I had a lot of answers.”
Lana said that Nia Jax was one of the many people who think less of her and don’t believe she deserves the opportunities. But she is here to prove them all wrong.
“Nia represents a lot of people that don’t believe in me. I know she represents a lot of the WWE Universe who think I shouldn’t be here. And I am going to go out there and prove people wrong. And tonight I proved her wrong. And you know what p**sed her off more than anything? It’s that I proved her wrong. And that’s why she put me through a table for the sixth time. But I’m going to keep on getting back up.”

Lana recently qualified as the #1 contender for RAW Women’s Championship and challenged Asuka in a losing effort. Nia Jax did not spare her on that night either.
