Nia Jax reveals what she told The Rock before her WWE tryout

WWE star Nia Jax recently spoke to Yahoo to help promote her appearance with The Bella Twins at theCURVYcon in New York City. The former RAW Women’s Champion discussed living out her dream in WWE, sports helping her love her body, and what she told The Rock shortly before her WWE tryout. Here are the highlights:

Living her dream in WWE:

“I’m living a dream. It sounds cliché, but I am. I get to go out there and truly be myself and show young girls, ‘Look, I can be whatever I want to be. It doesn’t matter my size, or what I look like, or what people think of me. If I put my mind to it, and I work really hard, I can do this. I can do whatever I want.'”

Sports helping her love her body:

“Sports helped me become super, super confident in my body growing up, especially in my high school and college careers. I wasn’t going to be a hot prom chick that everyone wanted to go on dates with, but I was a stellar athlete. Yeah, I was a bigger taller girl but I could kill it on the basketball court and was unstoppable on the volleyball court. That gave me my confidence, knowing that my body had its purpose.”

What she told The Rock just before her WWE tryout:

“I specifically asked him, ‘Please make sure that nobody knows we’re related.’ I wanted to go in and have a fair shot. Every girl had makeup, hair done. I was like, Oh my gosh, I’m not going to get signed. I thought for sure they’d laugh me out of the building.”

WWE coaches saying she was their top pick after the first day of the three-day camp:

“I was like, Are you kidding me!? I didn’t realize that me being so different and me having the confidence in myself shined through to them, [enough] for them to be like, Look, we need somebody like you.”
