Talk is Jericho Recap w/ Nia Jax – Relationship with The Rock, Transitioning into A Career in Wrestling, WrestleMania Match, More!
Jericho welcomes Nia Jax to the show.
Jericho recalls getting into an argument recently with Jax over whether or not she was legitimately related to The Rock. Jericho didn’t believe they were actually related, because all Samoans say they’re related anyways. Jax had to break out her family’s lineage to prove to Jericho that she’s actually legitimately related to The Rock.
She says that her family rarely interacted with The Rock’s family when she was growing up because Rock’s family was traveling the world as his Grandfather and Father wrestled. Apart from meeting him when she was very young, the next time she saw him was when she attended the Walking Tall premiere.
Jax informs that she spent ten years working as a plus-size model, before deciding to transition into a career in professional wrestling. She says that she was sitting ringside at WrestleMania 28 while The Rock faced John Cena, and she was mesmerized by the entire presentation. She began the process of trying to get into a wrestling school, but The Rock urged her to tryout at the WWE Performance Centre.
