- WWE superstar Nia Jax opens up about her own childhood experiences with bullying and why she's using her wrestling fame to teach young kids about respect in a new interview for ABC's "What Would You Do?" that will air tonight. Jax spoke with ABC's John Quiñones about the impact she says bullying can have on teenagers.
"It kills your confidence, especially when you're young and you want to be a part of everything," Jax said. "When there's a clique like that, that comes and attacks you and attacks how you look, you second guess everything about yourself. You can't really find that confidence you really need when you grow up.
"I would always be made fun of just for being my size," Jax added.
Jax also credited cousin Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for providing encouragement to get into the business.
"He said, 'You're beautiful. You're athletic…You have so much to offer,'" Jax explained. "Growing up thinking that I don't fit in, that actually is what makes me a better superstar. Not fitting in and showing people that not fitting in is a good thing."
"What Would You Do?" airs tonight, August 25th from 9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
