Nia Jax reveals not having family support after WWE release

Last updated

Nia Jax belongs to the Anoa’i family, who have been a huge part of the rich history of pro-wrestling. The former WWE RAW Women’s Champion has been involved in controversies after she was labeled as an unsafe worker inside the squared circle. She was harshly released by the company and she recently disclosed how she dealt with the tough times without the support of her family.

Nia Jax talks about the rough patch

In her first interview post-WWE release, Nia Jax appeared on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, and dropped a bombshell, stating that her family members who people thought supported her didn’t have her back at all:

“It was like, ‘Oh, she’s not going to lose her job because she’s related to Rock.’ You’ve got everybody under the sun ripping me to shreds with all that. It’s funny because it’s so far from the truth. So far from the truth. Vince didn’t have an issue. He knew, ‘shit happens, we’re going to make the best of it.’ Whatever family members they thought supported me, were opposite, did not have my back,” said Jax.

Jax also admitted that she had little support with her in the wrestling business for a long time, but didn’t complain about it:

Trust me, I did not have any support with me in this business for a long time. It sucks because you’re family and it is what it is. I didn’t mind it too much because I thought I was creating something on my own. I always pay homage to the family, we have an insane and incredible lineage. The legacy will on forever. Charlotte, Tamina, Nattie, we all want to put our own footprint on it. It’s fine if you don’t want to have my back or support me. I want to do this on my own. I wanted to be like everybody else when I first got signed. I didn’t tell anybody who I was related to,” added Jax.
