WWE Superstar Nia Jax recently spoke with the folks from Sky Sports to promote the upcoming RAW 25th Anniversary special later this month. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On who she would like to face at the RAW 25th Anniversary: “I would love to get in the ring with Bull Nakano. I would be so excited. Watching her back in the day, she [Nakano] is the definition of a badass woman. If you look back at their wrestling matches they were revolutionary back then, they just didn’t get the spotlight that we do now.
“If it wasn’t for those women putting in the work and the time, and showing people what they can do then I don’t think we would have had the opportunities to show what we can do now. They went insane. If you go back and watch that stuff, it’s so cool. I always study and watch them, it was super cool.”
On her interest in the stiff Japanese style that Bull Nakano brought to the women’s division: “That [style] is something that I love. You have women in UFC who are kicking the crap out of each other. If you look at what they were doing back then, you wouldn’t want to be on the end of one of those backfists or the way they hit each other.”
