Nia Jax and Lana Get Into Social Media Fight About Body Shaming

In a short time in WWE, Nia Jax has already become a trailblazer of sorts. In a women's division that looks mostly the same (aside from hair color), Jax is an abandonment of the status quo. As a bigger athlete, Jax is a valuable anomaly.

She knows it too and likes to express her pride on social media from time to time. She did so yesterday on an Instagram post, however, Lana had a bone to pick:

Lana: “My life motto : follow your own path no matter what people think ! Btw I hear all the time I am too skinny and too fragile and not strong enough…. cough cough cough… umm wait was that what you said or @natbynature !!!! ??? ? I’m just saying Remember that time you told me my amount of lifting weight wasn’t impressive like yours ??? Hmmmm interesting …”

Nia Jax: oh lord. Here we go…putting your #CrazyLana stamp on my heartfelt post ?! Making it about you…as always!!!!”

Lana: oh please I am just pointing out the truth…. body shaming comes in all shapes and sizes. Including being called too skinny and can’t lift enough…. some people are small some people are big, some people are flexible, some people can lift heavy. All of it is impressive and beautiful in it’s on way. I am just reminding you to practice what you preach.”

Nia Jax: hahahah! You’re delusional! Body shaming and telling someone that maybe you shouldn’t boast about lifting heavy when you could be showing a more athletic side to themselves are not even close to the same thing ?”

Lana: “I never ever ever said I left heavy! Never ! Because I don’t ! So don’t put words in my mouth. And I have no problem posting the little amount of weight I lift because that is me and my journey and I don’t think anyone should be laughed at for not lifting as much as you do or super strong people. At the end of the day I follow my own path and share it to the world… the good bad and the ugly. Because I am the first to say I am far from perfect and have much to learn”

Never known to avoid a verbal spat, here comes Alexa Bliss to the fray:

Alexa Bliss: “Oh good, you found my title! @niajaxwwe”

Nia Jax: Typical!!!! Two of the most attention seeking women in the WWE coming on my post and trying to make it about themselves ??? @thelanawwe@alexa_bliss_wwe_ ….

Lana: ” literally never making it about myself…. actually you come on my posts and always make it about yourself ! Interesting. But anyways. All these people attacking me I was just calling her out but I wish her the best and I am all for people breaking molds… I also ?? @alexa_bliss_wwe_ ???”


Like most arguments, this devolved from a useful dialogue about a social issue (body shaming) into childish banter. Either way, it's good entertainment for us WWE fans.

Social media is a breeding ground for most wrestlers to have mini-feuds. It's a shame it didn't come earlier
