Nia Jax Talks Her German Roots and More With Sports1

Munich – German-born wrestler Nia Jax is on tour with WWE. At SPORT1 she speaks her roots, her prehistory and Tim Wiese.

The wrestling stars of WWE are starting today on Germany tour – among them: an aspiring power woman with German roots.

The 109 kg Nia Jax has a German mother and is also a member of the legendary Samoan show fighting family.

The 32-year-old Hawaiian was formerly a college basketball, bodybuilder and oversized model, before her famous cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson inspired her to become a wrestler herself.

SPORT1: The Germany Tour is also a journey to your personal roots.

Jax: Yes, my mother was born and raised in Germany, near Hamburg. My grandmother (Jax says “my grandmother”, note of the Red) still lives in Germany, also many other relatives, in Bavaria and elsewhere – my grandmother was one of eight children. On the last tour in Munich, my German family was in the audience and saw their first wrestling show.

SPORT1: Another part of your relationship is the great Samoan wrestling family. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is your cousin. How close is the gang?

Jax: Dwayne is not only part of the family, he is also one of my best friends and mentor, he inspired me to become a wrestler myself. We have a close relationship, I talk a lot with him, he is a great person and a hero for me.

SPORT1: At the aforementioned show in Munich, Tim Wiese also made his debut match for WWE . How did you find it?

Jax: It was cool to watch. Tim Wiese had no easy task to compete as a star of another sport a WWE match. He did it well and when it was over, we all came to him in the backstage area and congratulated him.

SPORT1: He is not announced for the start of the tour. Do you hope he’ll come back?

Jax: You have to see that. If he does not enjoy it, he should not, but if he does, he is definitely well equipped, he has shown.

SPORT1: In the past, some wrestlers have also risen against men in the ring. Would that be for you?

Jax: I would not mind. I am strong and I can take care of myself. My father used to play basketball, football and baseball with boys as a kid. It has helped me develop my sporting ambition. I grew up among guys and got along well with the guys at WWE, even behind the scenes.

SPORT1: Her motto at WWE is “I’m not like most girls”. This has a personal history, which is also related to your previous career as an oversize model.

Jax: Yeah, it’s my heart. I grew up with my Samoan-German origin differently than many others, I also look different, I was always big and strong, not like the thin, pretty models on the magazines. When I myself came to modeling, I realized that I am also beautiful in my way and others can see. And that I am athletic and I could fulfill my WWE dream, I finally also noticed. And that is the message I now want to send to the young girls, who are themselves different, that they can do it.

SPORT1: In WWE, jokes were often made at the expense of wrestlers who did not correspond to the classic beauty ideals. Do not you fear that this will happen to you?

Jax: Oh, you know this is part of the job, so I have no problem. The WWE viewers are loyal fans, they can love, hate, mock, I know they have respect for me.

Web.De Interview: WWE Royal Rumble 2017 – Nia Jax has German roots

She is the hardest woman in wrestling: Nia Jax. In the Megaevent “WWE Royal Rumble”, the cousin of Actionstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson meets the former title holder Sasha Banks. In the interview, Nia Jax tells why she is a rather unusual show-fighter and which (evil) German word she likes best.

Nia Jax, you are Samoan, but your mother Renate comes from Germany. What is typical of you German?

Nia Jax: I am stubborn, very disciplined in any case and working hard. And I have definitely got the great personality inherited from my mother. Also in my eyes one sees totally that I have German roots.

Do they also speak German?

Nia Jax: (In German) A bit of German.

Do you have a favorite German word?

Nia Jax: Oh, but this is not a nice word. An evil word.

Just say …

A … loch (laughs). But another is more beautiful: my mother always called me “my darling”.

How strong are your connections to Germany?

Nia Jax: During our last tour in Europe we were in Germany. I had never been there before. My mother and my older brother came along. We still have a family in Munich. We saw them for the first time in our lives, before only in pictures. We had talked only once on the phone. And for her it was the first WWE-Liveshow. It was really cool.

Then to the wrestling: You are bigger, heavier and stronger than your opponents at the TV shows “RAW” and “NXT”, but you have never won a title. Why?

Nia Jax: Definitely, I am all that. For a title but I am not yet mature. When I get so far, I’ll target her and get her. Trust me. I do not worry about that.

Now you are in a feud with Sasha Banks. The title is currently held by Charlotte Flair …

Nia Jax: Sasha Banks puts such an arrogance into the day, calling herself “The Boss”. It just get on my nerves. She is definitely not my boss. On Charlotte, I have it as well. But not yet.

What do you think of the idea of ​​a “Royal Rumble” for women?

Nia Jax: That would be great. The women’s division has never been as athletic and good as today. Many have been raised by “NXT” and are arriving well. It would really be an event if you could see us all together at the “Royal Rumble” in the ring.

When you think of wrestlers, you have athletic models in mind. Is it a disadvantage to you that you do not correspond to this stereotype?

Nia Jax: Not at all. On the contrary: I have an advantage because I am unique. True, most wrestlers are pretty and in a great condition, but not every woman is like that. There are certainly a lot of German women who can identify with larger and wider women in the ring. And on me they see that it works just as well as with the other wrestlers.

How many kilos do you actually lift?

Nia Jax: That depends on what I do. With knee bends, it is about 135 kilos, while the cross-raising I manage loose 180 kilos. I have been very strong since my young age. Thanks to my Samoan-German origin, this is also clear.
