The Rock Has Praise For His Cousin Nia Jax

Last night on Raw, Nia Jax literally squashed Emma.

She posted video of the decimation to her Twitter: 

WWE Staff And Talent Were Excited For First Vince McMahon-less WrestleMania

Nia's cousin retweeted her post and added some praise and encouragement of his own.

Nia's cousin, we should probably mention, is The Rock (in case you didn't know.)

The Rock and Nia Jax have posted videos to their Instagram of them working out together in the past.


As cool as it is to be praised by "The Rock" it means so much more to me that my cousin DJ is proud of me. I am so thankful for all that he does! He is such a kind hearted, caring and loving person. No matter how big of a star he is, he is always so down to earth, humble and always takes hours out of his insane schedule to help me improve in the wrestling business. The love and support of my family means everything to me. As we make our resolutions for the New Year, motivation is key. For all those who don't fit the "traditional mold" and I'm talking to girls and boys both. Just keep being exactly who you are, cause as my cousin DJ said, who we are is perfect. Thank you for supporting me over these past few years on this journey and just know that you motivate me to be better every day! We motivate each other. Now it's time for me to kick some major booty in 2017! #Repost @therock ・・・ She ain't like most girls. Me and my cuz @niajaxwwe (Lina) layin' down our post workout --. Really proud of the hard work she's putting in 24/7 to become a real asset and draw for the WWE and their Women's Division which has some of the best female athletes on the planet. Luv spending hours with her chopping it up because she's so coachable & enthusiastic to learn the wrestling business inside and out from me. But what I'm most proud of about Lina's journey is she represents millions of young girls around the world who don't fit the "traditional mold" of what girls in the entertainment industry look like. She's an inspiring example that regardless of your look, height, weight, race, the most powerful thing you can always be is yourself. Because you're perfect. Just keep putting in that hard work and being humble and hungry. We're all rooting for ya. #IronParadise #NiaJax #FutureWWEWomensChamp #WhyBeLikeMostGirls #WhenYouCanBeYourself ----
