Nia Jax Explains How Becoming Champion Felt

Nia Jax is humbled by being Champion.

At WrestleMania 34, Nia Jax won her first piece of WWE gold when she defeated Alexa Bliss in a Raw Women's Championship match after being on the main roster for under two years. In an interview with Yahoo, Jax said the accomplishment meant a lot.

“Winning the championship at WrestleMania was a dream come true because not only had it more than a decade since there had been a women’s singles match at WrestleMania but the fact that I got to win it against my best friend in a storyline that was so close to my heart, it was just all kinds of emotional,” said Jax.

Since becoming champion, Jax has experienced benefits in the locker room and on tour.

“There’s a huge respect that you get from being the women’s champion. Everybody gives it, in the locker room and everywhere I go. It’s cool to be able whenever I’m doing media to be able to share that message which is near and dear to my heart. That respect that I’m given is very humbling and it allows me to continue to share my message,” said Jax.

In the rest of the interview Jax talked about the decision to announce her weight unlike other female wrestlers and how it added to a storyline she was working on with Bliss.

On Sunday, Jax will defend her Raw Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey at Money in the Bank for which Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage and recapping podcast.
