WWE was criticized for bringing back a former champion who was considered an insecure talent by his opponents. However, Asuka jumped to her defense. The champion in question is Nia Jax.
Nia Jax signed with WWE from 2014 to 2021. During this time, Jax reached the top spot by winning the Women’s Championship. However, something always stopped him.
Jax is said to be a worker who doesn’t care about his opponents. Over the years, Jax has hurt or seriously injured many other women in the ring. Jax also received a lot of criticism for his in-ring skills. The former women’s champion was eventually fired from the company in 2021.
But, ‘The Irresistible Force‘ returned to RAW this week and attacked Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez during their main event match. Fans have expressed their displeasure at seeing the 39-year-old star return to the ring.
However, Asuka quickly came to Jax’s defense on social media. He responded to fans questioning the decision to bring Jax back to WWE.
“That question is rude and scary. You hurt his heart with this question. Are you really a person with a heart? If anyone who was not directly hurt by him denies it, I will fight the society for him. If they criticize me for it, I don’t care.”
Nia Jax, on his way to another WWE championship
Nia Jax made her WWE debut in 2014 and quickly became a force to be reckoned with in the women’s division. In 2018, she won the Raw Women’s Championship, becoming the first Samoan woman to win a major championship in WWE. Jax held the title for several months before losing it to Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35.
In 2019, Jax teamed with Shayna Baszler to win the WWE Tag Team Championships. The duo reigned for over a year, defending the title against several teams, including The IIconics, Kairi Sane and Asuka, and Sasha Banks and Bayley.
Jax was released from WWE in 2021, but returned to the company in September 2023 during WWE Raw. Jax may have a chance to win more championships in the future as he attacked Raw Champion Rhea Ripley in her return.
