– WWE NXT Diva Nia Jax recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald. You can read the full interview at this link. Below are highlights:

Progressing in WWE NXT:

“Everything is incredibly, physically challenging. Most challenging, mainly for me, learning how to bump, learning to trust your body and trust somebody else with your body, when we’re learning how to do bodyslams and suplexes and figuring out how to kick somebody right while making sure to protect each other. In the beginning, for me, a forward roll was pretty challenging.”

Doing plus-size modeling before WWE:

“Not everybody is made to be a size 0 or a size 4, and I’m not saying there is anything wrong with being a size 0 or a size 4. Being my [plus] size is something I’ve had to deal with my whole life. I’ve always been the big girl. I’ve always had curves, and I never could relate to any of the girls like the Victoria Secret models. Once I realized, when I became a plus-size model, that there were more women like me, my confidence immediately shot through the roof. When I was able to walk out there and show younger girls, who are like me when I was their age — who didn’t see girls who are curvier being put in a beautiful light — it just made me think that I have to be able to show these girls that they are just as beautiful as the girls who are size 0.”

Working at 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.”
