Former Divas Champion Paige has urged WWE to re-sign Nia Jax, who was one of the names released by the company this past Thursday.
It was reported after she was let go that Jax’s decision to remain unvaccinated is something that played into the decision, but in a statement she posted on social media, she said she was never told that would be the case.
It seems there’s some truth to that Dave Meltzer also reported that talents weren’t outright told their vaccination status was something that would put their jobs at risk.
Paige and Jax appeared to be very close friends, as was chronicled on Total Divas throughout the years, and Paige took to Twitter with the hashtag ‘#BringBackNia’, clearly wanting the company the rehire Jax, a former Raw Women’s Champion and two-time Women’s Tag Team Champion in her own right.
In her statement mentioned earlier, Jax also wrote that WWE released her during time off she requested from the company for a mental health break.
