What's the story?

Monday Night RAW's Superstar Nia Jax has recently revealed who her dream Wrestlemania opponent would be, and it's a name that may surprise a few as it isn't Bayley, Sasha Banks or even Asuka.

In case you didn't know...

Nia Jax was last seen in action as part of team RAW at Survivor Series, a match that was won mainly thanks to the dominance of the undefeated Asuka, Jax was eliminated after Tamina hit a Samoan Splash off of the steel steps on the outside, causing Jax to get counted out.

Incredibly when Tamina and Nia Jax came face to face in the ring for the first time, the crowd popped loudly for the two ladies, leading to Tamina tweeting this about the confrontation

The heart of the matter

Given the reaction the pair got at Survivor Series 2017, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the answer to the question 'Who would Nia Jax's dream opponent be?' is Tamina Snuka, with the RAW Superstar wanting it to happen at Wrestlemania.

Jax answered a few other questions including when she knew she wanted to be a wrestler, and whether or not her cousin, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is giving her advice. Jax revealed that 'The Great One' has been an excellent source of advice and encouragement during her WWE career.

What's next?

Nia Jax was absent when Paige, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville made their mark on the RAW women's division by interrupting the fatal fourway #1 contendership match, and attacking Alexa Bliss backstage. However, it seems clear to me that Jax might not be too happy with the insurgent women on her show.

Jax has also teased a confrontation with the currently undefeated Asuka on the main roster, which would be interesting to say the least.

Author's take

If you had asked me before Survivor Series if there was any interest in seeing Tamina vs Nia Jax at Wrestlemania I would have shook my head, however it's hard to deny that the crowd did get behind the moment and a programme could work between the two.
