Nia Jax was one of the mainstays of the WWE women’s division ever since she was called up to the main roster in 2016. Before that, she also had decent run on NXT where she competed against top talents such as Asuka. It seems she was hurt by fan accusations as well.
Nia Jax was last seen on the September 20th edition of Monday Night RAW where Shayna Baszler took her out. Many fans wondered when she would return to WWE television, but that will no longer happen as Jax was released by WWE last year.
Nia Jax is also one of the most controversial Superstars in the company. She gained notoriety for being an unsafe worker and having injured several of her peers over the years.
While speaking on The Sessions with Renée Paquette, Nia Jax admitted that fans accusing her of intentionally injuring wrestlers hurt her the most as Jax claimed she put the utmost effort in ensuring her opponents are safe.
“Anybody who knows me in the locker room, I know that I was so much bigger than everybody and I know that I’m a lot stronger,” she began by saying. “Coach Sara Amato had always said, ‘you always have to be aware because you are so much bigger that you throwing your arm and hitting somebody in the face is not going to be the same as somebody smaller than you.’ I was always conscious of that. I always tried to take pride. I worked with Lexi [Alexa Bliss] most of my career and she’s so tiny.
She trusted me. It hurt when people were like, ‘she injures everybody.’ In my career, I know I’ve injured two people. Obviously, Becky was one of them. There is another one, I don’t want to call her out, but I know I did. I profusely apologized. Other things, they made like a whole YouTube about certain things. Hey, guess what, we get in there and we’re going 300 days a year and not all my moves are going to look super clean and smooth, but I’m not injuring people or purposely going out to hurt people. That’s what hurt me the most. I consciously make an effort to make sure I can make everybody look good and keep it safe and make sure we all get out laughing and having a good time and safe.”
Jax also previously revealed that she is planning an entirely different career after her release from WWE. Nia Jax also previously refused to acknowledge her run in WWE. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for the former WWE Superstar.
