Nia Jax was one of the mainstays of the WWE women’s division ever since she was called up to the main roster in 2016. Before that, she also had a decent run on NXT where she competed against top talents such as Asuka. It seems she was offered a spot in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.
Nia Jax was last seen on the September 20th edition of Monday Night RAW where Shayna Baszler took her out. Many fans wondered when she would return to WWE television, but that will no longer happen as Jax was released by WWE last month.
The Women’s Royal Rumble match featured several talents from the company’s past but that did not include Nia Jax. While speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Nia Jax revealed that WWE offered her a spot to be in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.
Nia Jax added that she almost immediately rejected WWE’s offer to be in the match and stated that she felt the offer was a slap to the face.
“I was in the middle of trying to get my stuff back. I had a bunch of crap. You know how it is, you’re just shoving stuff in everybody’s boxes. I’m in the middle of getting my stuff back, they sent me a box and more than half was missing. I’m like, ‘Yo, what is going on?’ When I got the call, I thought it was about, ‘Where is my stuff?’ It’s my homie in [Talent Relations]. ‘Hey, we’re just calling to see if you’d be interested in participating in the Royal Rumble.’ I started hysterically laughing. I thought it was my friend joking with me. ‘Oh, you’re hiliarious.’ ‘Actually, this is an official call.’ ‘Oh, f*** no, I’m not coming back.’ ‘We’d like to offer you this.’ I said, ‘first of all, 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 coming back. Absolutely f****** not. Is this all it was?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Okay, bye.’
That’s exactly what it was. They were accumulating a list, this is what I was told, they were accumulating a list and wanted to offer me the opportunity, accumulate a list that they send to Vince, then Vince goes through the list and says who he wants and who he doesn’t. I was like, ‘You’re asking me to be part of a list to go to the next step? F*** no. How much more can you shit on me?’ ‘We didn’t want her to feel left out. If it got around that she didn’t get ask, we didn’t want her to feel left out.’ ‘F***you, that’s such b*******.’ You needed people and I definitely [nixed] that.”
Jax also previously revealed that she is planning an entirely different career after her release from WWE. Nia Jax also recently refused to acknowledge her run in WWE. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for the former WWE Superstar.
