Nia Jax was a force to be reckoned with in WWE during her initial run with the company, but she was eventually released back in 2021. She was never a fan favorite and Jax has now cited a lack of support during her first run in WWE.

Since her comeback to WWE in 2023, Nia Jax has left a notable mark, enjoying ample screen time and participating in prominent storylines. From her pursuit of the WWE Women’s World Championship to her ongoing feuds with Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan, Jax has solidified her presence in the company. She attributes her newfound strength to a change in mindset.

In an interview on Hall Of Fame, Nia Jax reminisced about her initial days in WWE, likening the experience to being a “little baby deer,” thrust into the world of professional wrestling with little guidance.

“When you first get thrown into WWE, you’re kind of like on your own, you’re just like a little baby deer and they’re like, ‘Okay, here you go, figure it out.’ At least it was for me,” Jax recalled. “I was trying to figure out who I was, who Nia Jax was, as I was trying to train.”


We will have to wait and see whether Nia Jax will find herself in a big match at WrestleMania 40, as fans feel she more than deserves a spotlight at the Show of Shows.
