Nia Jax Claims WWE Contacted Her About Participating in Royal Rumble

Speaking on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, former WWE star Nia Jax discussed getting a call from WWE about potentially participating in the recently completed Royal Rumble PPV. Here’s what Jax had to say:

“Oh, yeah, I did. I was in the middle of trying to get my stuff back. I had a bunch of crap. You know how it is, like you’re 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?’

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?’ My homie in TR, they were like, ‘Hey… we’re just calling to see if you’d be interested in participating in the Royal Rumble.’ And I started hysterically laughing because I thought it was my friend joking with me. I was like, ‘Oh, you’re freaking hilarious.’

Then he was like, ‘Actually, no, this is an official call.’ And I was like, ‘Oh… f*ck no, I’m not coming back.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, 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.’ I was like, ‘No, I’m not f*cking coming back, absolutely f*cking not.’ I was like, ‘Is this all this was?’ And he was like, ‘Yes.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, bye.'”

When asked if it was like a slap in the face to get released from WWE and then receive a call to come back for a match, Jax said:

“That’s exactly what it was. And guess what, they were accumulating a list. This is what I was told — they were accumulating a list, they 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, ‘So, you’re asking me to be part of a list to go to the next step?’ I was like, ‘F*ck no. How much more can you sh*t on me, dude?’ Somebody was just like, ‘We didn’t want her to feel left out. If it got around that she didn’t get asked, we didn’t want her to feel left out.’ I was like. ‘F*ck you, that’s such bullsh*t.'”
