Nia Jax On Her Friendship With Alexa Bliss, Talks How She Brings Her Character To Life & Does She Get Along With The Other Women Of WWE


Nia Jax spoke with Metro Sport recently and discussed a number of topics ranging from: her friendship with current RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, promoting body positivity for everyone, being a great heel & much more

Here are the highlights:

Being On The Main Roster & Working With Alexa Bliss:

“Right now, I’m honored to be where I am so short into my WWE career. I know that being so different does award me some things that I’m getting, but I’m grateful. Alexa and I have been best friends since I tried out in NXT. She was one of the first people to help me and ever since we’ve been close. We call ourselves Team Rude because we’re super goofy and that’s literally one of the words that you’ll hear out of our mouths when we’re talking.
Hopefully I can continue bringing new things to the table and staying on top.”

The Male WWE Fans Enjoying Her & Bliss:

“It’s funny because I always say to Alexa that we’ll go to an arena and out of the 30 shirts I see in front of me, there’s probably 20 men wearing her Little Miss Alexa shirt. It’s great to see men enjoying seeing females wrestler and the entertainment that we’re providing.”

Bringing Her Character To Life:

“I feel that everybody has a little bit of sass, attitude and badassery in them so it’s not very hard. I’ve been in situations where people have irritated me and I’ve had to take care of business so I know how to handle that when I’m in the ring and channel that towards the women who are there with me.”

Promoting Positivity:

“The advice I have always taken from my mom is that beauty does not come from the out, it comes from within. My mom has always told me that no matter how beautiful you are on the outside, if you have an ugly personality and aren’t a good person at heart, then that does nothing for you. Loving yourself and being happy and positive, that’s where true beauty comes from. I get styled and have pounds of make-up put on which is cool and all, but if I walk out with a bad attitude and have crappy negative ways, then nobody would think twice about me. I definitely feel that if somebody is struggling with themselves and how they look, they need to really channel the positivity within.”

Nia’s Thoughts On The Mae Young Classic:

“I’m excited to watch Bianca Belair. I’ve always been a fan of hers, she’s very athletic and insanely talented. When I first met her at the Performance Center, I knew she’d be a star and I told her to keep doing what she’s doing and she’d do great things. The Mae Young Classic is very inspiring to see all these women from all over the world who have worked their butt off to get a foot in the door in WWE. They literally blew me away when I watched the matches, so I can’t wait for everyone to see it on the WWE Network. Women kicking ass is a great thing.”

Does Nia Get Along With The Fellow Women Of WWE:

“When it comes to match time, everyone settles down and gets into game mode, but a little bit before then there’s nothing wrong with a little fun and play. Our schedule is not easy. I don’t think any other sports team or company does what we do, we’re 24/7 and always on the road no matter what. Every now and then it’s good to have a nerfball fight or whatever to get rid of some of the stress we have.”
