Nia Jax: My Favorite Match Was With Bayley at NXT London

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/08/17


Nia Jax recently appeared on Talk is Jericho (transcript via pwpodcasts.com), here are the highlights…

On Her WrestleMania Match: “Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte. These girls are crazy good. So they had all these ideas and stuff and I’m sitting here thinking well ‘I’m still the green one, I don’t want to throw out an idea and feel like an idiot’. So I’m sitting there going ‘Maybe this? Maybe that?’ Then they’re coming up with something, then Fit’s throwing things in. I’m like ‘I don’t want to mess any of this up.’ So I literally said ‘wherever you want me to be, I’ll do it. Just tell me. Direct me.’ To be in a ring with those girls, and they’ve already accomplished so much in this business in such a short time. Like, you know, Bayley being the champ already, but then Sasha and Charlotte with their main event matches.”

On Rising to The Occasion: “Definitely. Before big matches, I usually write down on a notepad kinda what I want to accomplish. So it’s like ‘Be confident. Sell. Take your time. Have a good time.’ That’s literally what I write down. It was funny because my brothers were in my hotel room and were like ‘what’s this?’ ‘Well, its just something I write to myself just to remind myself like ‘go out there and kill it.’”

What’s been your favorite match that you’ve had?: “It was actually a match I had with Bayley at NXT London. Bayley and I had all these ideas of things that we could do and Triple H is the one who helped us out a lot with that match. It was insane. That crowd was… my first TV match; they hated me, which was amazing. Bayley was so over and we got so much time. Hunter was like ‘Take your time. Have fun.’ I watched it again the other day and I’m like ‘god.’ I loved that match. Loved it.”

Do you watch a lot of your stuff?: “I try to. I always like to watch and critique myself and get better at certain things. We got that opportunity at NXT where we broke down every match and you had your coach there. So I definitely want to keep that up because I have a lot to learn.”
