Update On Nia Jax Following Rumored Walkout

Nia Jax

There’s a rumor going around stating Nia Jax possibly did the same as Neville by walking out of last week’s Raw at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The rumors began today when a Twitter account — the same one that first spread word of Neville’s walkout last weektweeted about rumors of Nia being upset and maybe leaving Raw last week.

Now, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that it’s unclear if she left Raw upset, but he says WWE granted her a leave of absence for “personal reasons.” There’s no word on what those reasons would be.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer addressed Satin’s report on the F4WOnline.com message board during tonight’s episode of SmackDown LIVE. According to him, the rumor that Jax was granted a leave of absence comes from wrestlers in WWE. However, he was told by WWE management that she was not granted a leave of absence.

Meltzer wrote, “WWE wrestlers think leave of absence is accurate. WWE management says it’s not.”

Filming for the upcoming season of Total Divas is complete, so whatever happens likely won’t affect her appearances on the show.
