In the wake of all the news that is Ronda Rousey’s comments on “fake fighting” in WWE, another WWE Superstar has weighed in with her opinion.
Nia Jax took to Twitter to call out Rousey for her comments, and likely for issues stemming back to rumors Rousey took liberties in the ring with her friend Alexa Bliss. She wrote:
I can’t wait for Ronda 2 one day return 2 WWE. Even if WWE orders me to make Ronda look good in the ring, which is the ONLY way for Ronda 2 look good in the ring w/me. I’ll risk my job 2 go down in history as the one from this biz that knocked her the F**K out! #TestMeBitch
This comes after Rousey released a statement clarifying her comments on loving WWE being fake and acting in one of the last forms of theater. Rousey said during the interview with Steve-O on his podcast:
“I love the WWE. I had such a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room.Running out there and having fake fights for fun is just the best thing. I love choreography. I love acting. I love theater. Live theater and some of the last forms of live theater,” she added.
She caught the ire of some fans and wrestlers in WWE and then released a follow-up statement on Saturday:
“Anyone who is outraged by me calling pro wrestling “fake fights for fun” has never been in a REAL fight. While you all are tip toeing around bruising some pro wrestlers’ huge soft egos – no one is thinking about the REAL fighters you’re insulting when pretending pro wrestling is somehow on the same level of realism. Yes, I understand, wrestling 300 days a year for years on end is incredibly tough on the body and a difficult profession – but you know what would happen if you got in 300 REAL fights in a year? You would be dead.”
Clearly, Jax has heard those comments, taken a few minutes to respond and then made comments of her own.
All of this interesting timing, considering there are rumors of Rousey potentially returning to WWE, Nia Jax returned on Raw this week and there was a Darkside of the Ring documentary on the Brawl for All which included WWE Superstars really fighting and getting seriously injured.
