Nia Jax takes her moniker of being The Girl Who’s Not Like Most Girls very seriously. She has fought against body image issues her entire life and things don’t seem to be stopping now. But as a WWE Superstar, she can use her position in life to influence and motivate others.
Being a beacon of bravery for so many people can’t be an easy job but Nia’s willing to do it. She’s also ready to take Alexa Bliss’ newly won Raw Women’s Championship. Even though Bliss and Jax are best friends in real life, those two have something to settle in the ring. It will also be plenty painful for Little Miss Bliss.
Nia Jax is going to be featured on the next season of Total Divas to give her an even bigger platform to showcase what being a real woman is all about. She’s beautiful, she’s big, she’s brutal, but she’s really the sweetest person ever. Nia is also The Rock’s cousin and that’s pretty cool too.
Jax recently posted a motivatinal Instagram message for her fans to see and garner hope from and it did not turn out the way she expected. Because Lana found the need to comment and it only snowballed from there.
This was an amazing message for people with issues about how they appear on the outside. Nia Jax should be looked at as a brave woman standing up for those with body image issues. But instead she sparked an outrage in Lana and she felt the need to comment in full force.
Alexa Bliss eventually chimed in as well but she stayed in character. Bliss is BFFs with Nia Jax in real life so we can only imagine she was either trying to calm the situation or throw in some kayfabe. Either way, it seemed to get kind of real for a little bit.
You can read the comments below as Lana and Nia Jax went back and forth in an online argument. Lana should be glad she’s on SmackDown Live or she might be eating those words.
Lana: “My life motto: follow your own path no matter what people think! Btw I hear all the time I am too skinny and too fragile and not strong enough…. cough cough cough… umm wait was that what you said or @natbynature !!!! ??? ? I’m just saying Remember that time you told me my amount of lifting weight wasn’t impressive like yours ??? Hmmmm interesting …”
Nia Jax: “oh lord. Here we go…putting your #CrazyLana stamp on my heartfelt post ?! Making it about you…as always!!!!”
Lana: “oh please I am just pointing out the truth…. body shaming comes in all shapes and sizes. Including being called too skinny and can’t lift enough…. some people are small some people are big, some people are flexible, some people can lift heavy. All of it is impressive and beautiful in it’s on way. I am just reminding you to practice what you preach. ?”
Nia Jax: hahahah! You’re delusional! Body shaming and telling someone that maybe you shouldn’t boast about lifting heavy when you could be showing a more athletic side to themselves are not even close to the same thing ?
Lana: “I never never ever said I left heavy! Never ! Because I don’t ! So don’t put words in my mouth. And I have no problem posting the little amount of weight I lift because that is me and my journey and I don’t think anyone should be laughed at for not lifting as much as you do or super strong people. At the end of the day I follow my own path and share it to the world… the good bad and the ugly. Because I am the first to say I am far from perfect and have much to learn”
Alexa Bliss: “Oh good, you found my title!”
Nia Jax: “Typical!!!! Two of the most attention seeking women in the WWE coming on my post and trying to make it about themselves ??? ….”
Lana: “literally never making it about myself…. actually you come on my posts and always make it about yourself ! Interesting. But anyways. All these people attacking me I was just calling her out but I wish her the best and I am all for people breaking molds… I also ???”
In an interesting addition to this already controversial story, it appears Lana might have deleted her comments at this point. Still, Nia Jax just might need to pay the blue brand a visit so she can have a chat in the ring with The Ravishing Russain. What do you think?
