Why Nia Jax Felt A Lack Of Support From WWE

Nia Jax entrance WWE Elimination Chamber

Nia Jax has opened up about her struggles during her first WWE run.

In recent months Nia Jax has enjoyed arguably the most impressive run of her WWE career. The star has clashed with big names such as Liv Morgan and Becky Lynch, before headlining Elimination Chamber opposite Rhea Ripley.

Nia Jax returned to WWE at the 2023 Royal Rumble after being released in November 2021. The star had been with the company since 2014 having enjoyed a fruitful spell in NXT.

During an appearance on Booker T’s Hall of Fame podcast, Jax said she — as well as other WWE stars, aren’t always given much support when they take their first steps in the company.

“When you first get thrown into WWE, you’re kind of like on your own. You’re just like a little baby deer and they’re like, ‘Okay, here you go figure it out.’ At least it was for me. I was trying to figure out who I was, who Nia Jax was as I was trying to train.”

Time Away From WWE Was Crucial – Nia Jax

Continuing on, Jax described her time out of the ring as a “great experience” as it enabled her to work out where she needed to improve and come back a better performer.

“When I was able to step back and recalibrate, and see what I did wrong and see what I needed to do better. It was a great experience for me to sit back,” Jax said. “I was still watching, I’m still a fan, I’m always going to be a fan, and so now I have all these tools in my belt, and I’m like, ‘Okay, this is what I need to do, this is what I lacked and this is what I bring now.”

Following Elimination Chamber, some fans have called for Jax to face Jade Cargill at WrestleMania 40.
