Nia Jax responds to fan upset because WWE announces her weight, Paige chimes in

On Monday, we wrote about Kurt Angle’s response to a fan asking why Nia Jax is the only woman in WWE to have her weight announced during her entrance. The trend continued on Monday when her weight was announced while the other women that were introduced only had their name and residence mentioned during their entrance.

This was brought up by a fan on Twitter and Jax responded: “Everyone deals w/their weight differently. To me, it’s just a number! I am a HEALTHY woman & happy w/my body. Embrace yourself & beauty.”

That was followed up by this nice message from Paige: “You’re beautiful inside and out girl. A true role model and very inspiring. Keep doing what you’re doing! Miss you!!!”

Earlier this year, it was reported that the reason why WWE announces her weight is that they see it as a marketing technique to get her over. During an interview on Chris Jericho’s podcast, she said that she once called The Rock about WWE announcing her weight and he helped to put her at ease. She then said that John Laurinaitis explained to her WWE’s reasoning. She said, “I guess it’s more of showing people ‘she’s this weight and can move.” Jax continued, “I’m literally almost three hundred pounds. I’m heavy and outweighing some of the guys. I’m a heavy girl. And [Laurinaitis] was like ‘yeah, but it’s almost three hundred pounds, you’re beautiful, you’re athletic’ and I’m like ‘ok…ok.”

Side note: Paige is cleared to return to action. Click here if you want to know which brand she will be on.
