The current RAW Women's Champion Nia Jax will be walking into the 'Prudential Center' tonight in Newark, NJ to defend her title at 'Backlash'. Prior to her first title defense she spoke with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald as she opened up about possibly having the opportunity to compete against one of RAW's newest superstars Ronda Rousey. Jax also commented on what it has been like for her to reveal her true self to the world on 'Total Divas'.

On the 'Backlash' go-home show for RAW, Nia Jax stood in the middle of the ring raising the hands of Natalya and Ronda Rousey. Jax stated that in that moment the energy in the building was unbelievable and she was asked to share her thoughts on possibly having the opportunity to go one-on-one with the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion.

"Oh my God, literally you said that and I had goosebumps." She expressed. "Stepping into the ring with somebody like Ronda Rousey who’s accomplished so much in her own right would be such an amazing experience but I think the fans would completely resonate with it because they'd’ be able to see Nia Jax as a powerhouse. Over the past few years you’ve seen Nia Jax be built as a powerhouse and you have Ronda Rousey who is a legitimate bad a** woman from the UFC. I feel like fans would just go nuts for it," she continued, "And her being in our locker room is amazing because it steps everybody’s game up. Everybody wants to better each other so we’re always in there trying to make sure that every match you put together is amazing and that every match with everybody else is good so everybody’s looking amazing in their own right. So its been great having her in the locker room and I'm really happy for her as well."

Another set of moments for Nia Jax was watching herself on the E! Network series 'Total Divas'. Despite what is said about her online Jax is confident in herself and 'Total Divas' has allowed for Nia to see and present herself in a different light.

"I’m somebody who… I don’t really live by… Its been on RAW but I’m just somebody who is a very open book. I am true to who I am regardless of good, bad, or ugly and, so being able to be a part of the ‘Total Divas’ [cast] which is like this incredible show that has brought so much attention to WWE itself; to be on a cast with such amazing women it was a cool thing." She shared. "First, you kind of have this thing in like, ‘Oh, I don’t want people to see this side of me’ but I’m like, ‘This is who I am, my true self’, and I’m a strong enough woman to put myself out there and take whatever comes back at me and it only makes me stronger if I learn something new from it right? So it was actually pretty cool to see and I had a lot of amazing feedback from fans as well, and family... friends and family as well. So, it was a very good experience."
