WWE Monday Night RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss recently did an interview with The New York Post where she was asked about the status of her friend Nia Jax and the WWE. Jax hasn’t competed on WWE TV since October 2nd on Monday Night RAW. A report from Sports Illustrated earlier this week claimed that Jax has been unhappy with her pay and booking, leading to her taking a leave of absence.
Bliss stated that she believes Jax is taking time off due to the WWE’s grueling travel schedule, and there’s no doubt in her mind that she’ll be back inside the ring soon:
“We have talked about it a lot,” Bliss said. “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.”
