Nia Jax says being released from WWE was “one of the best things” that ever happened to her

During an appearance on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, Nia Jax reflected on being released from WWE in 2021

“I was pretty shocked too, with my time away. And it happened to become one of the best things that ever happened to me. I was able to really deep dive into finding myself again.”

“When you’re in the bubble for so long, you kind of get lost in the sauce of WWE. It’s a big, I don’t want to say drug, but it’s a bubble. You’re in a bubble and you’re stuck in the WWE world and you don’t really see outside. You have your blinders on. Being released gave me the time to actually dive back into myself and figure out what I want and what I want to do.” (quotes courtesy of
