RAW Superstar Nia Jax took exception to WWE posting a photo gallery celebrating the women of WWE in 2018. Featured in the photos were Charlotte Flair, The IIconics, Carmella, and Becky Lynch, but no women of color including Jax. This is despite the fact that Jax was one of WWE’s most featured female Superstars in a calendar year that saw her winning the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 34 and feuding with Ronda Rousey. Despite having a successful year and being extremely popular worldwide, Rousey was also not featured in the gallery.

Jax took to Twitter with the following response that included emojis representing women of color and the #WeHereToo hashtag:

That response apparently didn’t sit well with fellow WWE Superstar Tye Dillinger, who took exception Jax’s response. Dillinger took to Twitter with the following, “ALL the WWE ladies had a great year but these ones had some very captivating moments in 2018! And, if you’re all
#BooBoo face about being left off the list despite being on TV ALL the time….maybe spend more time on the craft instead of social media. Congratulations ladies.”

Nia Jax has not yet responded to Dillinger’s tweet; however, it is noteworthy that his tweet was eerily similar to Jax’s November tweet she issued in response to Ronda Rousey. In late November, Jax tweeted at Rousey, “Spend less time on here and more time learning to wrestle.”
I don’t have time for a social media war.🙄 spend less time on here and more time learning how to wrestle https://t.co/UaEA9LdHJd
