Nia Jax has an issue with WWE’s latest tweet highlighting the best moments from the female wrestlers in the company this year.
The tweet in question, has four images featuring female superstars with the caption that reads, “There’s no denying it. The women of WWE BROUGHT IT in 2018!”
Nia posted a response to the tweet full of emoji of women representing people of color with the hashtag “#WeHereToo” which, as you may have figured” is referencing the fact that no women highlighted in the post were of color.

This sparked a discussion on Twitter with many saying that Nia Jax should have been there, not because she is a woman of color, but because she is one of the only three women who were able to capture the Raw Women’s Championship this year.
Besides that, the first women’s Royal Rumble winner and current SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka, who is a minority, was also not featured.
Many were also pointing out that the post has The IIconics for some reason, even though there are other women in the roster who have achieved much more than them, and yet they were not highlighted.
What do you think of Nia’s statement? Do you think WWE is lacking is promoting racial equality? Let us know your thoughts!
