Nia Jax was released yesterday as part of WWE’s most recent wave of talent cuts.
The WWE has been the only home Nia Jax has known in her wrestling career and now with her abrupt release, the former WWE RAW Women’s Champion took to her Instagram to express her feelings on the situation.
“I usually keep my personal life private, but yesterday’s reports leave me with no option but to clarify matters. I recently took a short leave of absence from WWE for a mental health break. I’ve been working through so much – more than I can share – and so I took some time, with the full support of the company, to take care of myself.
Earlier this week, after WWE sent me my schedule to return to the ring for the November 15 show, I asked for an extension to my mental health break, feeling that I needed more time, and hoping I would have the ongoing support of the company I have given my all to for the past 7 years. I did not receive a response. The next I heard, I was being released. My vaccination status was never mentioned. I wasn’t given any choices or options.
It breaks my heart to be so abruptly let go, without consultation, when dealing with so much privately. I loved my career at WWE, I love the men and women I worked with, and I am going to need time to process this huge loss. I appreciate those people who have shown understanding and compassion during an incredibly difficult time.”
Nia Jax has not made any comments on what she will do once her 90-day non-compete clause ends so we will have to wait and see.
