Nia Jax To Jade Cargill: You'll Have Plenty Of Losses, But You'll Never Forget Your First

"You’re damn right I am. You’re damn right I am. I’m ready. Forgive me because Briggs has got me a little fired up. I love hitting, and that man brought it. Oba Femi, that’s a man who’s gonna bring it to me, and it’s a man I’m ready for. Let’s talk about it. This man has been unstoppable in NXT. No one can bring him down. But I did. I brought him to his knees, I put him on the mat. What’s he got? 12, 15 matches in the books? I’ve got 23 years. Nothing’s been handed to me. He came to NXT, and he got the red carpet. Not me. It’s been 23 years of failures and heartaches. I’ve been through a Viking Experience, I’ve been through a pandemic. I’ve been through a broken neck, and now, in 2024, in NXT, I will have my first opportunity for a singles championship in this company, and I will not squander it. Oba Femi is big, powerful, and impressive, but he is not battle-worn and battle-tested like the War Beard is. Ivar’s ready, but is Oba?’" Ivar said.

As of this writing, there is no word on a potential match between Ivar and Oba Femi.
