The New York Post spoke with Alexa Bliss about the status of Nia Jax. Jax hasn't wrestled on WWE television since the October 2nd edition of RAW. Sports Illustrated reported this week that Jax was unhappy with her pay scale and creative.
Bliss, who is Jax's best friend, told The Post that she believes that Jax is taking a break due to the schedule. Bliss added that she has "no doubt in [her] mind" that Jax will return to the company soon.
"We have talked about it a lot," Bliss said. "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."
Jax was originally scheduled to face Sasha Banks at WWE TLC this Sunday. The match will now feature Banks facing Alicia Fox, and will take place on the Kickoff show.
