Report: Nia Jax Taking A Leave Of Absence From WWE

It is being reported that Nia Jax has taken a leave of absence from the WWE.

There have been rumors surrounding Nia Jax's status with the WWE since this morning when Pro Wrestling Votes, who also happened to break the news of Neville's departure from Raw last week before anyone else, tweeted that she "possibly walked out" before Raw last week as well.

Pro Wrestling Sheet looked further into the story, and reported that while they can't confirm if Jax walked out, she reportedly has taken a leave of absence due to personal reasons that has been cleared by management.

Her last match was on October 8 in Rockford, Illinois in a fatal four way match for the Raw Women's title involving Alexa Bliss, Mickie James and Sasha Banks. She was last seen television on  the October 2 edition of Raw, when she lost to Mickie James by disqualification after Alexa Bliss got involved.

Jax had been in an off and on feud with Alexa Bliss over the last month after she turned on Bliss during a match. However, the storyline had changed recently, establishing them as "frenemies". 

This will not affect the taping of the next season of Total Divas, which Jax is involved in, as filming has already wrapped.
