Nia Jax wants a chance to take out Ronda Rousey, even if it means ruining her WWE career.

🌺 @NiaJaxWWE

I can’t wait for Ronda 2 one day return 2 WWE. Even if WWE orders me to make Ronda look good in the ring, which is the ONLY way for Ronda 2 look good in the ring w/me. I’ll risk my job 2 go down in history as the one from this biz that knocked her the F**K out! #TestMeBitch

Rousey offended many wrestlers and fans in the WWE when she referred to the sport as fake in an interview on the Wild Ride! with Steve-O podcast (warning: NSFW language).

"I love the WWE," Rousey said. "I had such a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room. Running out there and having fake fights for fun is just the best thing. I love choreography. I love acting. I love theater."

She also said some of the fans were "f--king ungrateful," which led to her extended absence from the organization.

The former UFC star won the Raw Women's Championship, but she last appeared in a match at WrestleMania 35 in April 2019.

While she did get some blowback from her comments about WWE, Rousey doubled down by referring to herself as a "real fighter."

Jax clearly remains offended by the notion and wants to get even in the ring, even if the company tells her otherwise.
