• “It breaks my heart to be so abruptly let go” – Nia Jax Comments On Her WWE Release
Former RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax was among the 18 wrestlers that were released from WWE yesterday.
Nia released the following statement on Instagram today:
“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, 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, while 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.”
