• Former Intercontinental Champion Says Nia Jax Is Not Dangerous To Work With

During a recent episode of Conversations With The Big Guy, former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback discussed people blaming Nia Jax for hurting other wrestlers.

The Big Guy disagreed with what people think of Jax and said the following about her:

“I’ve gotten this from fans where they used me in storyline angles to injure people…it was especially when I was a babyface, they did a bit. Like, they did one where they said I injured [CM] Punk’s knee, where Punk’s knee was hurt — that was a storyline to get Punk off TV. Because I remember I would get some, like hate and stuff, like, ‘You f***ing hurt this guy’ and I’m like, ‘What? People are responding to worked things like that?

I remember they did it with Kofi to write Kofi off of TV. He had bone chips in his elbow and I was heel, I think. I was getting ready…I don’t know if that was leading up to me and Cena, but I was powerbombing people like crazy. I powerbombed Kofi through three tables in Canada, and I remember they then put it on dot-com that I hurt Kofi’s elbow. People, in their heads, Ryback just hurts people, right? And I’m this big, jacked-up strong guy, and that creates this aura about you. So, my thing is, you don’t necessarily know when they’re doing that some times.

There’s a way to do things where you make it look like you’re really hurting someone way worse than you are, also. There’s so many little things that people, they don’t know because, they don’t know.

You can do that to me all day long and I’m not getting hurt. You can throw me 10 times harder than that. And that’s a real thing, knowing how to protect yourself.

Who has come out and said that, what’s the source that said this was Nia’s fault? This is bullsh*t wrestling. Anybody in the back – these sh*t producers and people – they stir up sh*t all day long. I don’t have time for it.

If Nia was truly as dangerous as what people want to believe, she would not be working every week on TV. She wouldn’t. She wouldn’t. If I was remotely dangerous, would I be working with all of these main-eventers? No, I would have been pulled out of it.”
