On February 1st we ran a report stating that R-Truth had real heat with Nia Jax over how stiff she was when she attacked Truth at the Royal Rumble. This information came from Jerry Lawler when he said on his podcast:
This got real heat for real. 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.
Nia furthered this belief by responding to the allegations:
Hahahaha!!!! You guys STAY talking about me!! Well since it’s super cold outside give me ALL THE HEAT 🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/BZQBr3Oxbx

Looks like this may have been a case of manufactured heat and an opportunity for the heel character to take advantage of it. Today, Nia posted pictures of her and R-Truth hugging backstage at the Royal Rumble dispelling any notion that there was real heat between the two superstars.
