Booker T opens up on Nia Jax's release

The effects of the global pandemic have also hit WWE, which has been forced to release large numbers of talent over the past year and a half. In November, a new wave of layoffs arrived that left everyone speechless. In addition to the name of John Morrison, Nia Jax was also on the list of released superstars.

Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent for the 'Wrestling Observer', provided an interesting interpretation of the sensational farewell of the Samoan. “The truth is that Nia Jax has been turned away to make room for Doudrop.

When Jax refused to go back to the ring, she gave her the sack” - she analyzed. Nia herself partially confirmed this version: “Recently, I was taking a break from WWE due to some mental health problem. After WWE sent me the schedule for my return to the ring on the November 15 show, I requested an extension but received no response.

Shortly after, I got the news that I had been released. I need time to process everything that has happened to me”. During the latest edition of her 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T examined the future prospects of the former Raw champion.

"In the seven years she spent in WWE, Nia Jax has contributed a great deal to the rise of the women's division" - the two-time Hall of Famer said. “There are rumors that her wrestling career may already be over, which wouldn't come as a shock.

Maybe Nia wants to devote herself to something else, like having a family, spending time with her loved ones and being able to breathe after all these years. Many people underestimate the efforts behind the work of wrestlers.

Being constantly on the road is not easy. It may be the dream of your life, but that doesn't mean it's an easy task. If she wants to start another kind of life, she has every right to do so” - added Booker T. Last year, Nia Jax revealed that she complained to WWE's higher-ups about a certain wrestler hurting Alexa Bliss in the ring.

Jax later confirmed that she was talking about former RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey. "I was like, 'No she cannot do this anymore. I personally would not allow her to get back in the ring to get hurt again,' and I had to go to the people, to the higher-ups, and tell them, 'listen, Lexi is five foot nothing, a 100 pounds, getting thrown around like a little ragdoll and injured every night.' I was like, 'Put me in, I'm a 6 foot, 300-pound bi**h and I can handle it,'" said Jax.
