Former Raw women’s champion Nia Jax was asked at the WrestleMania media rounds by Inside The Ropes why her advertised matchup with Dean Ambrose at a house show in Arkansas was scrapped. Jax explains that WWE didn’t have her schedule right, as she was busy shooting Total Divas material. She does joke that Ambrose wanted no part of her in the ring.
Unfortunately, my schedule was messed—they didn’t have my schedule right. I had Total Divas work that I had to go to, so it was more like the scheduling was off and we couldn’t make it work. I don’t want to say 100% because his wife is around here somewhere, but he was scared of me. He’s the one that asked for it to be scrapped. Just saying.
Jax would then go on to praise NXT’s Bianca Belair as someone she would like to see on the main roster.
Bianca Belair is definitely my favorite, for sure you have to watch out for her coming up in the ranks. Hopefully she comes up soon. It’d be cool to see her add another flavor to the roster. She’s such an incredible athlete and she’s strong.
