Nia Jax is one of the most dominant female performers in the WWE today, using her 6-foot, 272-pound frame to crush the opposition. Jax towers over most of her female competition and could go down as the strongest female force in recent wrestling memory.
However, Jax has opened up about facing bullying and body shaming, a sad but common occurrence in today's society— especially for celebrities. But Jax issued the perfect response to those who body shame this wrestling star.
I am subjected to body shaming & it’s something I have accepted. It sucks when you get it in your own backyard around people you’re changing in front of and trust with your body. I am a HEALTHY bigger woman, I LOVE MY BODY. Body shaming is WRONG! pic.twitter.com/RDeCogjlg9— Nia Jax (@NiaJaxWWE) November 26, 2017
Jax has done an excellent job blocking out the haters and focusing on her own success. Being real-life cousins with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has helped Jax reach the top of the women's card.
After refusing to lose cleanly to Sasha Banks at the TLC pay-per-view event, Jax walked out on an episode of Monday Night Raw at her cousin's encouragement. The lesson? Don't mess with Nia Jax.
Jax first joined the WWE in 2014, showing up in NXT. There, she competed against fellow main roster stars in Alexa Bliss, Bayley, and Asuka, among others. Jax decided she wanted to be a professional wrestler after seeing Rock face John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami Gardens.
Jax joined the main roster on July 25, 2016, after being drafted to the Raw brand. Despite appearing in a handful of Raw Women's Championship matches, Jax has yet to capture her first title in the WWE. She was also part of Team Raw for the women's interbrand 5-on-5 match at Survivor Series but was eliminated via countout—though Raw did end up victorious.
She's made it clear that she's happy with herself, and the confidence shines in the ring. For those who are body shaming Nia Jax, it's only motivating her to get stronger. She provided a great message for all those who are victims of body shaming.
