• “I wanted to see you get your a$$ kicked” – Vince McMahon To Former Champion At Royal Rumble 2019
At Royal Rumble 2019, Nia Jax competed in both the Men’s & Women’s Royal Rumble matches.
During an appearance on the Wives of Wrestling podcast, Nia said she’s a Vince McMahon Girl and revealed what Vince said to her that night when she thanked him for the opportunity.
Below is what the former RAW Women’s Champion said:
“Well, I’ve always just been — I call myself a ‘Vince Girl,’ right? Whatever he wants, whatever match he wants to put me in, whatever opponent, whatever kind of weird gimmick he wants me to do, I’m just like, ‘Yeah, whatever you want.’
Like, it’s my job, you know? I was like, Yo, whatever you’d like. I think they were just wanting to spice up [the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble], make it different. Johnny said he suggested it to Vince and Vince loved it.
I mean, it was crazy because it wasn’t just like being in the Men’s match. I was in both Rumbles on the same night. Somebody said that to me that night, I got obliterated that night, and everybody was buying me a shot and I was hammered.
[Rey Mysterio] was freaking getting me wasted, Shane McMahon. Anyways, we were just, we were sloppy messes. Somebody was like, did you know you were in both [Royal Rumble matches] tonight?
I was like, ‘Ah, I was! Sh*t, that’s huge.’ You know, when you’re in it, it’s just a cool moment and you’re just trying to soak it all in, and then when you get past it, you’re honored that they thought of you to be in that position.
I always had a good relationship with Vince. We chatted and laughed, we joked and so I even went up to him and just said, ‘I’m very grateful that you thought of me for this.’
He [responded], ‘Of course, of course. I wanted to see you get your a$$ kicked,’ like, you know, jokingly, Vince is, but it is a huge opportunity. Because if you don’t get put in that position, that’s it, you’re easily forgettable.
You can go up and be on the main roster and have a couple of matches here and there. But if you don’t get put into some seriously cool storylines or matches like that, you kind of get forgotten.
So it was a super, super cool moment, and I was super honored.”

• Old School Midget Wrestler Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 94th birthday of legendary Midget Wrestler Sky Low Low (Real name: Marcel Gauthier).
80s WWF Fans might remember him for some of his WWF appearances such as being Vince McMahon’s guest on the weekly TV show TNT Tuesday Night Titans.
He was also seen at “Butcher” Paul Vachon’s wedding, that aired on yet another episode of Tuesday Night Titans in 1984.
Sky Low Low was the smallest Wrestler in WWF/WWE history, measuring only 3 foot, 7 inches.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
