Nia Jax Rejected Offer From WWE To Compete In Royal Rumble

Nia Jax was released by the WWE along with a slew of talent in the November round of budget cuts. It seems as though she was approached by WWE to make a return at this year’s Royal Rumble festivities.

During a recent interview on Renee Paquette’s The Sessions podcast, Jax revealed that she was one of the many former WWE stars who received an offer to come back for the Women’s Royal Rumble match this past weekend. Jax explained that she wasn’t particularly happy with the offer given and that WWE had yet to send her back many of her belongings in the months since her release. 

“I was in the middle of trying to get my stuff back. Like I had a bunch of crap. Like, you know, it is like you just shoving stuff in everybody’s boxes, whatever. So I’m in the middle of getting my stuff back. They sent me a box and like, more than half was missing. I’m like, yo, what’s going on?” Jax said. “So when I got the call, I thought it was about like, where’s my stuff? So I answered, I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s up? They’re like, ‘Hey, we’re just calling to see if you’d be interested in participating in the Royal Rumble.’ I started to hysterically laugh because I thought it was my friend joking with me, right? I was like, ‘Oh, you’re freaking hilarious.'”

“Then he was like, actually, ‘No, this is an official call.’ I was like, ‘F— no, I’m not coming back.’ and he was like, ‘Oh, well, we’d like to offer you this.’ I said, ‘First of all, I already know I’m still under my 90 days. You’re still going to be paying me anyway, so you’re not offering me anything. No, I’m not f—ing coming back. I was like, absolutely f—ing not.’ I was like, ‘Is this all this was?’ and he was like, ‘Yes.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, bye,'”

Jax has hinted in previous interviews that she may be done with wrestling altogether. You can listen to the full episode of The Sessions with Renee Paquette below.
