Via Instagram, former WWE superstar Nia Jax has commented on her release from WWE.

“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,” she began.

“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,” she continued. “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.”

Word is that some of the WWE who were released yesterday were fired by the company because they weren’t vaccinated and refused to get vaccinated but their vaccination status was not mentioned in their notice instead the reason given was budgetary cuts.

The New York Post reported yesterday: “A source with knowledge of WWE’s operations told The Post that one of the reasons Nia Jax, a former WWE Raw women’s champion, was released is that she is unvaccinated.”

Nia Jax last appeared on the September 20th edition of Raw where she was attacked and injured by her former partner Shayna Baszler.

Jax’s cousins are The Rock and The Usos.

Jax began her career with the WWE back in 2015 and won the Raw Women’s Championship once by defeating Alexa Bliss. She held the title for 70 days before losing it back to Bliss. She held the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship twice with partner Shayna Baszler.

Through her career with the WWE Jax has been branded an “unsafe worker” injuring numerous fellow superstars in the ring. Most notably, Jax punched Becky Lynch in the face breaking her nose and giving her a concussion on an episode of Raw in 2018.
