Vince McMahon Says Nia Jax in The Andre The Giant Of The Females, Jessie Elaban Makes NXT Debut

Jessie Elaban, who began training at the WWE Performance Center back in June, made her NXT debut at Thursday’s NXT Live Event in St. Petersburg, Florida.

As seen below, Elaban introduced herself to the fans in attendance as Jessie and hosted a talk show segment called “The Jessie Show.” Her guest on the segment was Demetrius Bronson. The segment ended up being interrupted by Kona Reeves and Chinese recruit Gu Guangming, who is using the name Ming and acting as Reeve’s bodyguard.

Elaban, who is 28 years old, was offered a contract by WWE after participating in a tryout at the Performance Center last fall. She has no prior wrestling experience.

- While appearing on Talk Is Jericho, Nia Jax talked about the first time she decided to go into Vince McMahon’s office and revealed that Vince sees her as the ‘Andre the Giant’ of the females.
“Vince is like the big dog, he owns the company. You hear, ‘Oh do this, do that because Vince likes it.’ So one day, I walked up to his office, grabbing some balls of mine and saying, ‘Hey Vince,’”

“I walked in and thanked him for the opportunity he’s given me so far and want to know what [he] wants me to do in this division. He said, ‘You’re like the Andre the Giant of the females. It’s going to take a lot for these girls to get you down. You’re a killer, you’re strong.’ He basically just told me that they need to work to get you down and you need to protect yourself in that way.”
