The New York Post is reporting that Nia Jax’s release from WWE happened because she is unvaccinated.
The Post cited a source in WWE with knowledge of company operations. Jax has not commented on the story.
Jax joined 17 other names released today. Those names include Scarlett, Karrion Kross, Franky Monet, Oney Lorcan, Eva Marie, Hit Row member B-Fab, Jessi Kamea, Trey Baxter, Zayda Ramier, Katrina Cortez, Jeet Rama, Lince Dorado, Keith Lee, Ember Moon, Mia Yim and Gran Metalik.
In addition to those releases, there were several office cuts made this week. The reason being given for most of the releases is that it was necessary due to budget cuts.
