Alexa Bliss provides an update on Nia Jax

After it was reported that WWE granted Raw Superstar Nia Jax a leave of absence from the company for personal reasons, speculations have been swirling as to why Jax decided to take some off. She has not quit the company and is currently booked for WWE’s upcoming European tour.

Sports Illustrated reports that Jax is unhappy with her current creative direction and pay scale. The Wrestling Observer (via 411Mania) adds that Jax’s frustrations stems from not getting a match against Asuka at this Sunday’s TLC PPV event. Meanwhile, a source from PWInsider believes the original plans called for Jax to face Sasha Banks at TLC over Alicia Fox.

All speculations put to side, Jax’s close friend and fellow Total Divas star Alexa Bliss has chimed in Jax’s leave of absence during an interview with the New York Post, where she says that her friend simply needed a break from the road:

“We have talked about it a lot. 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.”

When asked whether Jax would return to the company Bliss responded that she expects Jax to return sooner, rather than later:

“Absolutely, no doubt in my mind,”
