Nia Jax is "afraid of heights sometimes."
In 2014, Nia Jax started her wrestling career. Her professional wrestling experience started with WWE and she gained all of her wrestling knowledge as part of the WWE developmental program. On Talk is Jericho, Jax was asked about which parts of training were difficult. Jax detailed the hours she spent in the ring, gym, and classroom as a trainee. She said outside of the time-consuming aspects, she had trouble the first time her trainers asked her to jump from the top turnbuckle.
"I could pretty much do about everything. But, there was a drill, I am afraid of heights sometimes, we had to go up (to the top rope) and I'm like "oh god!' and they are like 'just fall'. It's a big pillow pad but it's like 'just fall' and it's like a trust fall but you're watching yourself hit the ground. But that's probably one of those things where I was like 'goddamn,'" said Jax.
According to Jax, leaving the ground has been a rarity for her because she is the largest woman in her division. She said being the "big girl" she hardly takes "the big bump." In another part of the podcast, Jax talked about taking a triple power bomb from Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley at Wrestlemania 33.
