Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated that Nia Jax’s release came as a surprise because of her ties to The Rock and The Usos. He also further noted that Vince McMahon always been high on former Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax and tried to protect her.
”Nia Jax (Savelina Fanene), 37, a big surprise because of her being cousins with Dwayne Johnson and because she was usually featured when on the main roster. The women’s tag team division was built around her and Shayna Baszler for most of the year and Vince McMahon was always high on her which is why in the tag team it was almost always Baszler that would lose if they were going down and she was always protected and kept strong.” said Meltzer
