There are some conflicting reports going around on Nia Jax. As reported last week in the Wrestling Observer newsletter, the word in WWE as that she never walked out and she was simply taking some time away. That was also backed up by Alexa Bliss in an interview with the New York Post. A friend of Jax told us that the story was overblown and she just needed to recharge her batteries and she never walked out or threatened to do so.
However, Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso has a different story. A new story on SI.com claims that Jax was not happy about being booked to lose clean to Sasha Banks at the TLC pay-per-view and that is when she called her cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson reportedly encouraged her to talk away if she was not happy.
It’s no secret that she has leaned on her famous cousin for advice and the latest reporting from Barrasso indicates that she did so again before the TLC pay-per-view. Last year on Chris Jericho’s podcast, Jax talked about getting advice from The Rock to get his take on the company announcing her weight but never announcing the weight of the other women.
The latest on Jax is that she is scheduled to return to action next week when WWE begins their tour of Europe so if there were issues with the company then things appear to be smoothed over.
