#5. Wardrobe Malfunctions Are A Thing In The WWE
No one will ever forget the most memorable wardrobe malfunction of all time. Pop icon Janet Jackson's embarrassing Super Bowl malfunction was so significant that it introduced the words "wardrobe malfunction" into popular vernacular.
The WWE isn't safe from such malfunctions. The world of wrestling is centred on exotic costumes that enhance the characters the WWE Superstars portray. They are absolutely integral to the wrestler's persona and storyline. Sometimes things don't go according to plan and, as Nia Jax discusses in episode one, the dire consequences of good intentions ensue.
As Nia Jax sat down for a meal with her Total Divas cast-mates, she revealed that she had an interesting and embarrassing wardrobe malfunction of her own. As Jax prepared for her WrestleMania 34 singles match against former best friend Alexa Bliss, her designed costume needed to be sent back for a more creative approach.
According to Jax, the costume showed a bit too much revealing an unsightly "camel toe" effect. Never fear wrestling fans. Jax sent the costume to be fixed by one of WWE's expert costume designers and she looked amazing for WrestleMania.
