What's the story?

According to PWInsider, WWE Superstar Nia Jax may be off WWE programming after sustaining a back injury.

In case you didn't know...

Nia Jax has been off TV for quite some time, with the Hybrid Athlete wrestling her last TV match against Mickie James on the October 2nd edition of Monday Night RAW.

Several reports suggested that Jax — similar to Neville — had walked out on the company due to unsatisfaction derived from her creative direction and the pay she was receiving.

Later, several reports confirmed that Jax had been provided with a leave of absence by the company as a sign of wanting to keep working with her.

The heart of the matter

Although still unconfirmed, these speculations could be corroborated with Alexa Bliss' statement about her best-friend to the New York Post.

On October 19, Bliss took part in an interview with the New York Post, wherein she revealed that Jax was taking a break from in-ring competition to rejuvenate herself.

"She’s taking some time off because our schedule it very gruelling. It’s very, very demanding."

Bliss stated that every wrestler needs to reset every once in a while, revealing that even she took such a break during her time in WWE's developmental brand, NXT. The red brand's Women's Champion concluded her statement by claiming that she'll be happy once Jax comes back.

What's next?

According to reports, Jax was supposed to face Sasha Banks at tonight's TLC PPV event, but those plans changed leading to Alicia Fox taking on The Boss.

However, it seems that The Hybrid Athlete may have someone else in sight, as she tweeted out a message to Monday Night RAW's newest recruit, Asuka, welcoming her to the red brand.

She also tweeted out another message indicating her excitement over the in-ring return of The Olympic Hero, Kurt Angle.

Author's Take

We hope that Nia Jax recovers from her ailings and comes back to the ring as soon as possible. It will be interesting to see which storyline awaits her next.
