Female WWE Superstar, Nia Jax, has reportedly taken a leave of absence from the company. Some new reports have come in that her cousin, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, may have encouraged her to take time off.

According to a report from Sports Illustrated, the reason Nia Jax chose to take a break from the WWE is because she was unhappy with her booking.

She did not like the idea of losing clean to the much smaller Sasha Banks at the TLC PPV.

Nia Jax called her cousin Dwayne Johnson for some advice.

Johnson reportedly told her to walk away if she was unhappy.

This conflicts with what Alexa Bliss (Nia's real life friend) said in an interview recently that Nia Jax is just taking some time off to recharge her batteries due to the strenuous WWE schedule.

There's been a lot of wrestlers in the WWE that have been unhappy with the company lately. Austin Aries and Neville left since they were forced to stay in the Cruiserweight Division.

Emma tweeted out her frustrations recently due to the lack of TV time. Emma has somewhat gotten more TV time now, although she's being used to put Asuka over.

The topic of Nia Jax walking away from WWE is very interesting. The last thing WWE wants to do is upset Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Johnson is the biggest movie star on the planet and is much more famous than the WWE itself.

WWE usually needs him for extra promotion and not the other way around.

I'm pretty sure cooler heads will prevail and Nia Jax will be back in the company in a better position. She's been on the main roster for over a year now, but has yet to become a Women's Champion.
