Nia Jax isn’t like most girls and she’s starting to really impress some people. Rumor is she is gearing up for a shot at the Raw Women’s Title at SummerSlam, but it was the #1 contender’s match on Raw for a match at Great Balls Of Fire that really sparked Edge’s interest.
On a recent episode of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge and Christian discussed the women’s gauntlet match that headlined Raw this week and they were obviously impressed with Nia Jax as well.
“Nia Jax on [Raw], I’m a big fan of her’s” Edge said. “I think she’s what they could base the entire Women’s Division around and just have her as this unbeatable, conquering machine. And last night [on Raw] I think that showed it could very well be the case if it’s done properly.”
“She was out there for thirty-three minutes or something like that […] yeah, it was a gauntlet match and she went through everybody until Sasha Banks at the end, you know when Sasha beat her to become #1 contender. But you know, she’s just different. She’s talented and she’s pretty, she’s all of the things that they could base it around but she could be a killer.”
Christian chimed in and said he didn’t think Nia Jax should have lost the gauntlet match and posed a scenario where Jax instead bulldozed over everyone to earn a shot at Alexa Bliss’ title at Great Balls Of Fire.
“I get that backstage her and Alexa Bliss are friends so that’s what they’re leading to so I’ll hold out on that” Edge replied, “but I still think that Nia is a wrestler that they should protect and she shouldn’t be tapping out to things right now. I think she should just be devouring everyone.”
“All I’m saying is I think Nia Jax is what you can base that whole thing off of” Edge continued. “Because I really, really — she’s improving, you can tell she’s gaining confidence, she’s obviously powerful — so many things you could do especially with that roster of talent that they have right now. And she’s completely different than that entire roster right now. You know, I just think there’s a lot of stuff that can be done with her.”
Edge and Christian went on to compare her to Brock Lesnar and Big Show saying she needs to be protected. Edge concluded the subject by saying he hopes WWE realizes what they have in Nia Jax because “here’s something special with her.” Obviously Nia has some fans in Edge and Christian.
