• Nia Jax Says It Hurts When Fans Say “She Injures Everybody” – Claims She Only Injured 2 Wrestlers
During an appearance on Renee Young’s podcast, former RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax talked about accidentally injuring female wrestlers during her time in WWE.
Below is what she said:
“Anybody who knows me in the locker room, I know that I was so much bigger than everybody and I know that I’m a lot stronger.
Coach Sara Amato had always said, ‘you always have to be aware because you are so much bigger that you throwing your arm and hitting somebody in the face is not going to be the same as somebody smaller than you.’ I was always conscious of that. I always tried to take pride.
I worked with [Alexa Bliss] most of my career and she’s so tiny. She trusted me. It hurt when people were like, ‘she injures everybody’.
In my career, I know I’ve injured two people. Obviously, Becky was one of them. There is another one, I don’t want to call her out, but I know I did. I profusely apologized. Other things, they made like a whole YouTube about certain things.
Hey, guess what, we get in there and we’re going 300 days a year and not all my moves are going to look super clean and smooth, but I’m not injuring people or purposely going out to hurt people. That’s what hurt me the most.
I consciously make an effort to make sure I can make everybody look good and keep it safe and make sure we all get out laughing and having a good time and safe.”
