Nia Jax returned to Raw last Monday after spending a few weeks off the road, and during her absence there were various rumors and reports circulating in regards to why she wasn’t appearing on TV or at live events.
Jax was recently interviewed by The Mirror where she was asked if she had taken time off to deal with an injury, and according to Nia she was just taking time off because WWE didn’t have anything for her in regards to storylines.
“Thank you. Well actually I had live events off for the last couple of weeks because that’s just how it worked out, for cycling and stuff, so I got a little rest from TV because I wasn’t in anything storyline-wise, so I had a little rest there. But yeah, it’s been great. I love what we do, I love the storytelling, especially being such a different character and obviously a different size than everybody, we get to play on that and it’s always cool to see where we can go in the ring.”
Total Divas recently returned for season 7, and Nia Jax and her best friend Alexa Bliss have joined the cast. Jax also noted that fans will be seeing a different side of her on the show.
“Yes, definitely. They will definitely see something completely different. On Raw I’m the big mean girl who goes and beats everybody up, on Total Divas they will see a softer vulnerable side of me that definitely isn’t see on Raw. And some very goofy stuff between Alexa and I. Team Rude is definitely in full effect.”
