Nia Jax run roughshod over WWE women’s division since her main roster call up in 2016. Prior to that, she also had a decent run on NXT where she faced top talents such as Asuka. She also didn’t expect to win her first women’s title at WrestleMania 34.

The controversial WWE Superstar won the WWE Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania in 2018. She defeated Alexa Bliss for the title and the story heading into the match was related to body image issues.

While speaking on the Wives of Wrestling podcast, Nia Jax said she enjoyed the story going into that match. She also stated that she thought WWE would change plans for her to win the title.

“Well, it was really cool. Because it was something that Lexi and I, we were able to collaborate together on it. It was so funny, because she would get so evil, and people were like, ‘How dare they make fun of—’ and if anybody knows Vince, it’s like Vince loves to take the obvious and expand it,” said Jax. “There was a promo where they were making — Mickie James and [Alexa Bliss] were just making fun of the way I looked and my size and people just went nuts on Twitter. So to me, it was like, making it more real made it better with everybody. People were like, ‘F*** Alexa.’ They were really buying me and it was like the only time anybody was f****** behind me in the company, but they were really behind me.

It was such a cool story because I have a niece and she’s a tall girl,” Nia Jax continued. “She’s taller than everybody. You know, she looks just like me. I’m like, ‘Oh, man, she’s gonna be able to grow up and be like, ‘My aunt was a badass like she got. She looks so good. She won that title, she was a champ, and she beat her bully.’ It was a super cool thing, because not only did I get to do that for my own family, but I saw so many girls. I met so many girls, I talked to so many women about how that really helped them in their own personal life. So it was just — especially winning it. I didn’t think I would win. At that point. I never really won anything and it’d always be like, ‘Nah, I’m gonna put this person over now,’ like cool, whatever. But then they were like, ‘You’re actually like getting the title. ‘Like, yeah, right. I’ll believe it the night of when they actually — because shit changes all the time.”

Nia Jax also previously refused to acknowledge her run in WWE. She is also unsure about her pro wrestling future. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for her.
