Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss have been known to be both friends and enemies on WWE TV, but when Jax isn’t playing her character on-screen, it appears that she’s still looking out for the former Women’s Champion.
As part of a recent live video stream that also included Paige, Renee Young, The IIconics and Natalya, Jax was able to open up about the time that she went to WWE management when an unnamed star hurt Alexa in a match.
“She was working an angle and she was continuously getting hurt [in a] certain angle with somebody. I remember her not saying anything, specifically because she wanted to be a team player. She was so nervous and she wanted to be a team player…Me personally from the outside looking in, I was so angry. I was like, ‘no, she cannot do this anymore.’ I personally would not allow her to get back in the ring to get hurt again. I had to go to the higher-ups and I had to put down a certain foot and say, ‘listen, Lexi is five foot nothing, 100 pounds getting thrown around like a ragdoll and injured every night.’ I was like put me in. I’m a 6 foot 300-pound b*tch. I can handle it.”
“I understand there’s a certain thing of being quiet and taking it and being like no, I want to be a team player. And there’s another side where it’s like sh*t dude, I can’t allow to see one of my good friends who I want to be here in five years so I can continue to work her..like getting hurt. I need to stand up and freaking be there for her and make sure that her livelihood is going to be okay when she’s done here.”
While the WWE star remains unnamed many WWE fans have concluded that Ronda Rousey is the name that Jax is missing since Rousey and Bliss worked together in 2018, but Bliss was later moved away from this feud and Jax was slotted in later in the year.
