Nia Jax was called up to the main roster from the NXT division two weeks ago when she was drafted by Monday Night Raw for their roster.
In her debut on Raw following the brand extension, Jax wrestled in a match against a local competitor and won very easily, showing off her talent which could make her a dominant force in the women's division.
However, just because she has been called up to the main roster, doesn't excuse her from NXT house shows, and it was at a recent NXT show in Houston that she performed a move that caught people's eye.

During a match against Asuka, Jax performed her own rendition of The Rock's 'People's Elbow' as seen in the tweet below; the People's Leg Drop.
It was nice of the rising women's star to pay homage to her famous cousin, and although the reaction was boos unlike when The Rock performs the People's Elbow, WWE should encourage her to use the move more, and perhaps even on the main roster.
Jax is also currently a heel, so the boos are great at the moment as it is providing her with necessary heat. She's expected to achieve great things in the WWE because of her family ties with The Rock, so getting even more heat for performing this move would be a good start for her on the main roster.
It should help propel her further in her career within the company much quickly as fans will be annoyed she is using one of their favorite superstar's moves.
