Alexa Bliss Explains the Real Reason Why Nia Jax Is Taking Time Off WWE
As noted, WWE Raw star Nia Jax is currently not on the road with WWE, and reports earlier this week indicated that Jax had been granted a leave of absence from the company.
Fellow WWE Raw star Alexa Bliss recently spoke with the New York Post, and clarified Jax’s WWE status, saying, “whatever she is going through, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a leave of absence. She’s taking some time off because our schedule it very grueling. It’s very, very demanding. There are times where you are run down and your body can’t do it anymore and you get sick or you get injured from it and you get tired.
“So, I feel like everyone needs a reset every once in a while. In NXT I took a few resets and it was never like public knowledge, but we all need them. We all take them once in a while. I am happy when she comes back. I feel like everyone needs that refresher week or refresher moment.”
As we reported yesterday, Sports Illustrated published an article on Nia Jax stepping away from WWE, and attributed the time off to the hectic WWE schedule, her current pay scale, and the creative direction of her on-screen character.
F4WOnline.com furthered today that WWE is not calling Jax’s time off a “leave of absence”, and when asked when she will be back with the company, they asserted “she never left”. As of now, Jax is still booked for WWE’s upcoming European tour, and it remains to be seen if she makes the trip.
