Over the last 24 hours, there’s been a rumor going around on Twitter regarding Nia Jax. The rumor, first mentioned on the @WrestleVotes Twitter account, claims that she was upset and then walked out of Raw. Whenever a WWE Superstar misses a round of shows, rumors will flare up. Jax missed the weekend live events and was not featured on Raw. As best that I could tell, she was not backstage on Monday night so technically, she could not have walked out.
From the @WrestlingVotes account: “Following up on this: superstar in question was Nia Jax. Interesting she didn’t appear last night either. Hmmm.”
They followed up: “To be clear: never said Nia walked. I was following up on a rumor I heard. It’s very possible she did, but I can’t confirm just yet.”

That same account was credited with breaking the news on Neville last week, although the news first broke on a Twitter account based in Connecticut.

I should note that Neville technically did not walk out last week because he was not at the show to begin with, nor was he at last weekend’s live events but the main part of the story about him being unhappy and requesting his release appears to be accurate.
Pro Wrestling Sheet was not able to confirm whether or not Jax left the show angrily but they are reporting that management has granted her a leave of absence for personal reasons. A friend of Jax told us earlier that she did not request to be released.
We reached out to WWE for comment on this story. We have yet to hear back but we’ll update this post if they issue a statement. Whatever the issues are with Jax, we wish her the best.
