Nia Jax will be one of the new additions to Total Divas when it returns soon, but the Raw Superstar isn't too happy about the show's poster.
Total Divas will be returning to our screens in a little over a month from now. The reality show on E! starring some of WWE's top female Superstars—and sometimes a couple of male ones—will be in its seventh season, and as is often the case from one season to the next, the cast has been reshuffled slightly.
Stars from season six that will not feature in the upcoming episodes will be Eva Marie, for obvious reasons, Paige, and Renee Young. Those three ladies will instead be replaced by Total Divas newcomers Carmella, Alexa Bliss, and Nia Jax. All three of those women have risen through the ranks in WWE over the past 18 months so thoroughly deserve their spots on the show.
Despite their inclusion on the reality show being announced a while ago now, with the season premiere right around the corner it's only recently that WWE has amped up the promotion of its return. A poster featuring all nine of the women that will star on the show in its seventh season was released via social media, and Nia Jax had an issue with what she saw. In the picture, she is more or less the same height as her co-stars, which is most definitely not the case. Jax tweeted the photo herself saying that she found it "kind of weird" that she was the same height as everyone else in the picture.

Jax selling point on Raw right now is that she's not like most girls, so to have her appear to be like everybody else in promotional material seems like an odd decision. Anyone who watches Raw will know how much taller Jax is than her peers on the women's roster, in particular, her real-life best friend Alexa Bliss. Nia dwarfs Bliss when they appear together on screen, yet as you can see in the poster there is only a few inches difference between them.

Most will likely see this and not consider it that big of a deal, but in actuality it really is. WWE is supposed to be in a time of revolution for women's wrestling where females of all shapes and sizes are competing in the company. Editing one of their stars on a poster because she's "too big' sends out the exact opposite message to the one they should be trying to convey in the present day.
