Rikishi is regarded as one of the most respected WWE legends of all time, who gained prominence for his physical stature, amazing agility, impressive dance moves, and most importantly, his infamous Stink Face.

The WWE Hall of Famer was known to put his huge buttocks straight into his opponents’ faces and rub them off until they would faint out. Interestingly, that has been one of the main signatures associated with Rikishi for the majority of his WWE career.

With the Hall of Fame season upon the company, a member of his family, current WWE star Nia Jax decided to pay homage to her legendary uncle by borrowing his famous move for her match on RAW this week.

The Irresistible Force battled her long-time rival Becky Lynch and during one of the spots, gave a somewhat Stink Face to The Man. Rikishi took notice and sent out his reaction via his X account.


“That’ Part ⬇️ Malo Nia 🤙🏾.”

Nia Jax is coming off a huge loss at the hands of The Eradicator, Rhea Ripley in a high-stakes WWE Women’s World Title match in Perth, Australia. So it would be interesting to see what happens next for her as she evidently displayed that she is not ready to be left out on the road to WrestleMania 40.
