Alexa Bliss Explains Why Nia Jax Stepped Away From WWE

Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss took part in an interview on Thursday and revealed the reason for her good friend Nia Jax‘s sudden break from the road.

Bliss told the New York Post that she believes that Jax is taking a break due to the schedule. Bliss added that she has “no doubt in [her] mind” that Jax will return to the company 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.”

Jax was originally scheduled to face Sasha Banks at WWE TLC this Sunday. The match will now feature Banks facing Alicia Fox and will take place on the Kickoff show.
