Nia Jax is without a doubt the most formidable wrestler in the women’s division today. She destroyed every opponent in her squash matches, and even has destroyed some of the big names in the WWE. She has gained tons of steam and she may be challenging Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam this year. What many do not know about Nia, however, is what Vince once described her as. I must say, the comparison is definitely there.
In an interview on the Talk Is Jericho podcast with Chris Jericho, Nia revealed about a time where Vince McMahon referred to her as “The Andre the Giant of the females”. Here is what Nia said:
“Obviously, Vince is like the big dog, he owns the company. You hear, ‘oh do this, do that because Vince likes it.’ So one day, I walked up to his office grabbing some balls of mine and saying, ‘hey Vince.’ I walked in and thanked him for the opportunity he’s given me so far and want to know what he wants me to do in this division. He said: ‘You’re like the Andre the Giant of the females, it’s going to take a lot for these girls to get you down. You’re a killer, you’re strong.’ He basically just told me that they need to work to get you down and you need to protect yourself in that way.”
This is an almost perfect comparison for Nia Jax. Andre used to destroy his opponents in his prime. If any comparison could be made to another female wrestler, the best comparison would be Awesome Kong. Awesome Kong has since switched to acting, being a big character on Netflix’s Glow. Awesome Kong used to destroy her opponents like Nia Jax does now.
Who do you think is the best comparison to Nia Jax? Do you think Nia will face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam? Let us know!
