Nia Jax Update
As we reported yesterday, Nia Jax has been granted a leave of absence from WWE to deal with some personal issues. Despite rumors, it’s being reported that she has not quit the company. But, as of now, she will not be shooting any new footage for Total Divas; the cast and crew are in New York this week to film footage for the upcoming season.
Another report is stating that Nia’s leave of absence has to do with her being frustrated with her creative direction and pay. She has leeway that others don’t (being The Rock’s cousin and all), so it’s probable that WWE will work something out for her so that she can return in the near future.
Jax is off the road and off of all WWE television for the foreseeable future. We will keep you updated if more information on this situation comes to light.
