Sean Waltman Almost Appeared At Royal Rumble 2022, Nia Jax Talks Elimination Chamber



On a recent edition of Konnan’s “Keepin’ It 100” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Sean “X-Pac” Waltman revealed that he almost ended up appearing at the WWE Royal Rumble 2022 pay-per-view event.

While Waltman didn’t return at the Rumble, he did end up wrestling for GCW instead.

Waltman said, “A couple of years ago, when I ended up actually having a couple of matches, I had a tag match with Matt Cardona and Brian Myers at GCW, and I had a singles match with Joey Janela; I told them I would be ready for the Rumble. Somebody, I’m not going to say who, I don’t want to stooge them off, but they had me listed for a Rumble appearance that somehow got scratched. This year, I ate what I wanted to over the holidays. I’m in good shape and everything, but I’m not in ‘go’ television shape. If you tell me, ‘Be ready in two months,’ I’ll get abs, but I’m not going to do that and be like, ‘I hope they call me.’ F**k that.“

On a recent edition of Booker T’s “Hall of Fame” podcast, Nia Jax revealed that she didn’t know she would be in the main event of WWE Elimination Chamber 2024 until the day before. She said,

I didn’t know until I think the night before. I think somebody had sent a card to me and I went, ‘Wait a minute, does this mean that we are on in the main event?’ Not going to lie, it felt like a lot of pressure because you had some pretty stacked Elimination Chambers, and a great tag on the card. I just wanted to put on the best match I possibly could, with a great story. Easy with Rhea Ripley, but wanted to be able to tell a really good story to the fans and hoped that it resonated to them, and it was an honor to be the main event in front of all those people.”

Jax challenged WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley in a losing effort.
