She is a firm believer in certain things and also does not stand for some controversial things.

As per Ringside News coverage, Jax was against the policy of WWE to get vaccinated to travel overseas. Even after her release from WWE, she was of the same opinion and shared several posts regarding the same on her social media.

In early 2022, Jax, who goes by the name Lina Fanene, received major backlash from the fans for her views on vaccination. Surprisingly, at the same time, Lynch unfollowed Jax on social media.

Also, last year Jax has shared on her Instagram stories that Lynch doesn’t have good friendship with anyone backstage. It seems The Man wasn’t able to resonate with Fanene’s views and finally decided to pull the plug.

Lina Fanene’s reply to the tweet of Becky Lynch

A couple of years back, the six-time Women’s Champion shared a tweet in which she compared Jax with a toilet. The Man cleared her tweet was unrelated to anyone and explained that in Ireland the slang for “‘toilet’ is ‘Jax.’” Clearly, this made the former WWE star upset and she shared a tweet that Jax later deleted. 

Fanene wrote, “B*tch, go back to tanking ratings and making your two ‘belts’ completely irrelevant. While you’re at it, have [Lacey Evans] teach you how to take a proper shower, you moldy cabbage smelling ginger.”

The heat between Lynch and Jax started in 2018, ahead of the Survivor Series. Fanene’s accidental punch that broke The Man’s nose cost her the match against Ronda Rousey. That match was one of the most anticipated ones in 2018. 

As of today, Lynch is still WWE and has also appeared in a couple of episodes of Jax’s cousin, The Rock’s NBC series Young Rock as Cyndi Lauper. Fanene hasn’t stepped into the ring since WWE released her in November 2021.
