An argument broke out on Instagram between WWE Superstars Nia Jax and Lana. It started when Jax posted an inspirational message for women who were told that they were too big or don’t look the part. Lana’s comment underneath her post was not well-received by Jax.
Check out the post below and then scroll down for the responses. Oh, and Alexa Bliss (the real-life friend of Jax) chimed in but stayed in character).
For the girl who was told, "You're too big," "You don't look the part," or "You just don't fit. This isn't the right path for you," listen, maybe they're right! Maybe that path isn't right, that's why I'm cutting my OWN path in this industry, one that I am in control of. I'm not like most, so why should my path be? It's tough work, but well worth it! #NotLikeMost ?
Nia Jax: For the girl who was told, “You’re too big,” “You don’t look the part,” or “You just don’t fit. This isn’t the right path for you,” listen, maybe they’re right! Maybe that path isn’t right, that’s why I’m cutting my OWN path in this industry, one that I am in control of. I’m not like most, so why should my path be? It’s tough work, but well worth it! #NotLikeMost ?
Lana: My life motto : follow your own path no matter what people think ! Btw I hear all the time I am too skinny and too fragile and not strong enough…. cough cough cough… umm wait was that what you said or @natbynature !!!! ??? ? I’m just saying Remember that time you told me my amount of lifting weight wasn’t impressive like yours ??? Hmmmm interesting …”
Nia Jax: oh lord. Here we go…putting your #CrazyLana stamp on my heartfelt post ?! Making it about you…as always!!!!
Lana: oh please I am just pointing out the truth…. body shaming comes in all shapes and sizes. Including being called too skinny and can’t lift enough…. some people are small some people are big, some people are flexible, some people can lift heavy. All of it is impressive and beautiful in it’s on way. I am just reminding you to practice what you preach. ?
Nia Jax: hahahah! You’re delusional! Body shaming and telling someone that maybe you shouldn’t boast about lifting heavy when you could be showing a more athletic side to themselves are not even close to the same thing ?
Lana: I never ever ever said I left heavy! Never ! Because I don’t ! So don’t put words in my mouth. And I have no problem posting the little amount of weight I lift because that is me and my journey and I don’t think anyone should be laughed at for not lifting as much as you do or super strong people. At the end of the day I follow my own path and share it to the world… the good bad and the ugly. Because I am the first to say I am far from perfect and have much to learn
Alexa Bliss: Oh good , you found my title ! @niajaxwwe
Nia Jax: Typical!!!! Two of the most attention seeking women in the WWE coming on my post and trying to make it about themselves ??? @thelanawwe@alexa_bliss_wwe_ ….
Lana: literally never making it about myself…. actually you come on my posts and always make it about yourself ! Interesting. But anyways. All these people attacking me I was just calling her out but I wish her the best and I am all for people breaking molds… I also ?? @alexa_bliss_wwe_ ???
Call me crazy but the cynic in me wonders if all of this is bickering on Instagram will be used on Total Divas. After all, Bliss and Jax are good friends and all three women have been photographed hanging out together in recent weeks.
