The National Wrestling Alliance announced today that women’s star wrestler Jazz unexpectedly vacated the NWA World Women’s Championship. The promotion made the announcement this morning via their Twitter account.
Jazz has held the title for 948 days, after she defeated Amber Gallows on Sept. 16, 2016, to become the first African-American woman to do so.
Later, the former champion provided an update and thanked her fans for their support. Apparently, Jazz needed to take a leave for personal and medical reasons. Hopefully, it’s nothing serious and she will return soon.

Altogether, spanning multiple wrestling promotions all over the world, she is a six-time women’s champion and a former WSU Tag Team Champion.
This was her first title reign with NWA. There has been no word as to why she vacated the title yet. According to the promotion, a new champion will be crowned this Saturday at Crockett Cup. Allysin Kay will compete for the vacant title against an opponent who will be named sometime this week.
