EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Former Women's Champion Jazz Reveals Whether She Was Contacted To Compete At 'WWE Evolution'

Considered one of the most dominant women in pro wrestling history, former WWE Women’s Champion Jazz has spent the last 20 years creating a Hall of Fame resume. With roots tracing back to ECW, Jazz immediately made an impression in the WWE, as she became Women’s Champion by defeating Trish Stratus less than three months after her main roster debut.
Unfortunately, due to injuries and a lack of creative direction by WWE, she only competed for three years in the company. However, since 2004, Jazz has been dominating the independent scene, as well as the prestigious NWA promotion.

In an exclusive interview with The Floor Seat, Jazz revealed whether she was contacted by WWE to compete at the history-making Evolution pay-per-view.
“No, I have not had any contact with the WWE. I’m creating my own Evolution.”
In September of 2016, Jazz captured the NWA World Women’s Championship, and has retained it ever since.
Just recently, Jazz retained the title by defeating Penelope Ford at the NWA 70th Anniversary event. I asked Jazz on her thoughts of the event, and she shared her appreciation of what took place.
“It was another epic moment in my career,” said Jazz. “To be apart of a company that inspired me to be a wrestler. Growing up watching some of the most incredible wrestlers as a kid and watching how they carried themselves and represented the NWA. I’m proud to be the NWA Women’s Champion and I carry this title with pride and honor.”
When asked what legend Jazz would like to defend the title against, she gave quite the interesting answer.
“Right now I’m focusing on my own legacy. So the question is ‘what legend would like to have shot at the NWA Championship against Jazz!’”
Although it has been nearly 15 years since she has been a full-time competitor for WWE, her presence is still felt, even with her absence from the Evolution pay-per-view.

WATCH: Torrie Wilson Reacts To Being Announced For 'WWE Evolution'

In less than two weeks, WWE will present the first-ever Evolution pay-per-view, which will be headlined by Ronda Rousey defending her Raw Women’s Championship against Nikki Bella, and Becky Lynch defending her SmackDown Live Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair. On Raw, there was another match announced, which is a battle royal to determine a new number one contender for the Women’s Championship.
The names mentioned being in the battle royal include Asuka, Carmella, Ember Moon, The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce), Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Naomi, Nia Jax, Tamina, Alicia Fox, Lana, and Dana Brooke.
Another name who was mentioned includes former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson.

Still, she is popular enough to bring interest to the match, which is most likely why she was included.

Which Former Champion Did Nikki Bella Want To Return At WWE 'Evolution'?

The return of The Bella Twins has taken a new direction since their heel turn on WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.  With WWE Evolution just two weeks away, the rumors of a Rousey and Bella Twins feud have now been realized.

The twins took park in a Q&A session this weekend at the ACE Comic Con in Chicago.  Moderated by legendary WWE announcer Lillian Garcia, the twins spoke about a variety of topics including Nikki’s intentions of becoming WWE Raw Women’s Champion at Evolution.  Also, Nikki stated that she hoped that former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee could appear at the first all-women’s PPV event for WWE.
Bella also commented on the legacy Lee left behind, citing her involvement in what the Women’s Division is today.  Bella made a great point talking about the storylines she had with Lee in addition to giving Lee the credit that she deserves.

In hindsight, their back and forth feud has been rather prolific.  Their feud (including sister Brie Bella and Smackdown General Manager Paige) is one of the turning points of the evolution.
From Lee’s iconic “Pipebombshell” promo that ignited the Women’s Division in 2013 to Bellas’ shock win over Lee that started her history-making Divas Championship reign are among some of the biggest moments for the Women’s Evolution.  Whether fans like it or not, the priority of The Bella Twins in storylines plays a big role en route to Evolution.

Bella has most certainly improved in recent years in addition to becoming a business player in WWE with two shows, a clothing line and a wine line.

Bella’s return to the ring for Smackdown in 2016 started one of her best runs.  Her feuds with Carmella and Natalya were among some of her best work with the company.  Her current program with Rousey could very well highlight her growing resume.

Sunday October 28th I will shock the world. The days leading up to Evolution I will prove to you all that I will be ready to beat an Olympic athlete. That I can be badder than the baddest one of the all. The 28th I’ll start my new reign. And it’ll be the longest of them all. N pic.twitter.com/XjVWXIL6xK

The match between Bella and Rousey for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship has also been confirmed as the Evolution main event at the Q&A session.  Bella is confident that she can shock the world once more, as she is no stranger to doing so.

WATCH: Ronda Rousey Has Harsh Words For The Bella Twins Following Attack On 'WWE Raw'

It appears as if Ronda Rousey is through making friends in WWE after The Bella Twins turned on the “Baddest Woman On the Planet” and attacked her after their victory over The Riott Squad on Raw this week.
The attack from The Twins was done by WWE to set up a singles match between Rousey and Nikki Bella at the WWE Evolution PPV taking place on October 28th in Long Island, at The Nassau Coliseum. The bout between the two Raw stars will headline the PPV with the Raw Women’s Title on the line.
Photo: WWE
In a new interview conducted for TMZ Sports, Rousey was asked about The Bella Twins attacking her on Raw this week, and Rousey fired back with some choice words for the Total Bellas stars.
“Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, they’re a bunch of untrustworthy b***hes,” declared Rousey. “But we got the first all-women’s PPV coming up for the WWE, me and Nikki are going to be headlining, and so you know what? If she wants to be my antagonist, that’s fine, all I really care about is the success of the PPV.”
Rousey added she is no longer interested in making friends in WWE, and she feels the only person she can trust in the company is Natalya, as she has learned the hard way that The Bella Twins were never her friends to begin with.
“I’m trying to make friends [in WWE], and show everybody I’m friendly and trying to help out and not to steal anybody’s thunder or anything like that,” said Rousey.

The Champ added that she is unsure how her match against Nikki Bella will play out at the PPV, but that it’s much more personal than her previous bouts in WWE. You can watch the full interview with Rousey in the above video player.
Nikki Bella vs Ronda Rousey at WWE Evolution joins another big match announced this week for the PPV which will feature Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita team-up to face Mickie James and Alexa Bliss.
