Nia Jax talks about NXT and the WWE Performance Center

On the WWE Performance Center:

“It’s surreal because we get such amazing attention from some really talented people at the Performance Center. When I first got there, it was nostalgic [because of her wrestling lineage], and I was like, ‘I can’t believe that I’m actually getting coached by ‘the’ Sara Del Rey and Matt Bloom and the guest coaches. Coach [William] Regal comes in and just blows us away every time. It’s amazing to be there.”
