Nia Jax turned down offer to appear in the 2022 women’s WWE Royal Rumble match

During an appearance on Renee Paquette’s podcast, former WWE star Nia Jax talked about how she was offered a spot in the 2022 women’s WWE Royal Rumble match…

“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 hilarious.’ ‘Actually, this is an official call.’ ‘Oh, f*ck 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*cking not. Is this all it was?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Okay, bye.'”

“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*ck 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*ck you, that’s such bullshit.’ You needed people and I definitely [nixed] that.” (quotes courtesy of
