Vince McMahon Compares Nia Jax to WWE Legend

Nia Jax may one day prove to be the most valuable female in WWE. While she may be a few steps behind Charlotte Flair (like everyone else) Jax instantly gratifies the WWE audience like no one else in WWE's women's division.

As the physical outlier, Jax distinguishes herself from the pack. On top of that, Jax adds an element of physical brutality that has been missing from women's wrestling for a long time. That said, the anomaly that is Jax is something that Vince McMahon himself loves.

On a recent episode of Talk is Jericho, Jax discussed an intimate conversation she had with Vince earlier in her career:

“Obviously, Vince is like the big dog, he owns the company. You hear, ‘oh do this, do that because Vince likes it.’ So one day, I walked up to his office, grabbing some balls of mine and saying, ‘hey Vince.’ I walked in and thanked him for the opportunity he’s given me so far and want to know what [he] wants me to do in this division. He said, ‘You’re like the Andre the Giant of the females. It’s going to take a lot for these girls to get you down. You’re a killer, you’re strong.’ He basically just told me that they need to work to get you down and you need to protect yourself in that way.”

For someone bigger than their peers, an Andre the Giant comparison is the consummate compliment. Even better, McMahon is exactly right.

Jax is en route to becoming championship material. Since she's been protected from the microphone we can't really speculate how good or bad of a talk she actually is. However, her gimmick is one that doesn't need too many words. That said, it seems unlikely she beats Sasha Banks next week and if she does, it would an even slimmer chance that she beats Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam. But one day, Jax will be Women's Champion.

Banks vs. Bliss, however, could be all time good. Their physicality along with their heat backstage makes them an easy comparison to Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels. It's a lofty analogy, but these girls are capable of putting on a blockbuster at SummerSlam. The only concern is that WWE will not be able to give them the requisite amount of time to put on a classic. Then again, Summerslam may be 6 hours so surely room can be spared for a seminal women's wrestling match.

Regardless, it's nice to have some parody in the Women's ranks. Monday's match will be fun, no matter who wins.
