The recent storyline involving Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss is turning Nia from heel into an instant babyface. Everyone knows what it is like to be bullied, so seeing Nia in that position has endeared her to the WWE universe. So, is it the WWE’s intention to turn Nia Jax into the ultimate good superhero?
What Happened Between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax?
In case you missed it, here is the low-down on the story between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax.
On the March 12, 2018 Raw, a running camera would turn the tables on the friendship Alexa Bliss had with Nia Jax. Unaware the microphone in the dressing room was still on, it picked up a conversation between Bliss and Mickie James, talking about Nia Jax.
The statements made by Bliss were less than flattering. Among other things, Bliss stated that she was “using Nia”. She also made some derogatory statements about Nia’s weight, comparing her to “Shrek lumbering through TSA” and saying “she is just as dumb as she is big”.
To watch the entire segment and how it ruined the friendship between Nia and Alexa, be sure to watch the video above.
Why Do People Relate To This Storyline?
In my humble opinion, people are tired of the overpowered good guy who destroys everything in his power against the odds. Now, people are looking for more relatable storylines and the development between Nia and Alexa certainly delivers that.
Alexa Bliss plays a ruthless Mean Girl. Nia is the vulnerable friend who is tired of being run over. Everyone has encountered a mean girl in their school life, or even in the workplace. So, we secretly hope that Nia takes her revenge on Alexa Bliss.
In the meantime, the rivalry does not only put Alexa Bliss in the villain’s spot, it also puts Nia Jax in the limelight. The WWE has set up an amazing feud in which we are emotionally invested, and it seems they will take the feud to the biggest stage of them all!
Nia Jax Versus Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania
One week later, on March 19, it seems the rivalry between Bliss and Nia has gained steam. During Raw, Nia came out to get her revenge on Bliss; this after a match with the Empress of Tomorrow Asuka.
Bliss escaped Nia’s wrath by the skin of her teeth and promptly made her way to Raw general manager Kurt Angle. She demanded that Nia is suspended or even arrested! However, Kurt Angle responded by booking Bliss in a match against her former best friend.
Congratulations to Nia and Alexa
I must admit there are not a lot of storylines in the WWE I care about, but this is certainly one. The women’s division usually struggles with good storytelling, so this feud is a lovely surprise. So, congratulations to both of them for doing a story we are invested in.
