Nia Jax Open To AEW Move

Nia Jax Mickie James

Nia Jax caused a stir when she turned up as a surprise at the 2023 Royal Rumble and now the former WWE star says she’d be open to a move to AEW.

Nia Jax joined WWE in 2014 and spent two years as part of the NXT brand before moving up to the main roster on Raw. At WrestleMania 34 she reached the peak of her WWE career when she defeated Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Despite her presence on WWE shows and her on-screen success, Nia Jax proved divisive to many fans and she found herself released from her contract in November 2021.

During a K&S Virtual Signing, Jax was asked if she’d ever be open to a move to AEW in the future and says she’d consider it:

“I actually would. I keep getting asked that question, and I usually say no, but I actually would. I’m really good friends with Saraya, I love what she’s doing there. I recently met Nyla Rose. It would be kind of cool and add something different.”

At the moment Saraya has recruited fellow former WWE stars Ruby Soho and Toni Storm to form The Outcasts in AEW as they look to take out the company’s originals in the women’s division.
