WWE Raw Women’s Champion told the New York Post that Nia Jax is taking a break from WWE. ““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.” Read the full story at NewYorkPost.com.
Powell’s POV: Bliss added that there is “no doubt in my mind” that Jax will return sooner rather than later. Reports indicate that Jax was originally scheduled to face Sasha Banks at WWE TLC, but Jax was replaced by Alicia Fox. WWE has yet to acknowledge that Jax is taking time away. Thanks to Ernesto Cruz for passing along the story.
