The October 5 episode of Empire was meant to feature Jaxon and Goto taking on Sunshine and Goto's wife, Haruna Sakazaki, in a tag team match. Instead, Goto and Sakazaki, who had allegedly had marital troubles, secretly made up and ambushed Jaxon and Sunshine before the match ever began. One week later, on October 12, General Manager Tarah Nova revealed that the final three spots in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption for Jaxon's title would be filled by Sunshine, Goto, and Sakazaki.

On the June 2 episode of Kingdom, Jaxon revealed that she believed she knew who had intentions of challenging her for the title at Boiling Point, and it was revealed to be Stephanie Matsuda. On the June 16 episode of Kingdom, Jaxon was a guest commentator during Matsuda's main event victory over Udy, after which the two exchanged words. On the June 30 edition of Kingdom, Jaxon successfully defended the OWA World Championship against CM Nas. At Boiling Point, Jaxon and Matsuda fought to a draw in the main event of day two. After the conclusion of the match, Matsuda's Zaibatsu stablemates Keelan Callihan and The Wild Boys were shown stealing the OWA World Championship. On the August 11 episode of Kingdom, Jaxon closed the show in a segment where she said she was "done" with Matsuda. This drew out Callihan and The Wild Boys, which led to a confrontation where Jaxon battered The Wild Boys. Matsuda then came out and took the title from Callihan, giving it back to Jaxon and telling Callihan to drop the matter.

Sporadic Appearances (2018 - present)
Jaxon made her first appearance for the revival of the all-female LAW at the promotion's Alliance Supershow, where she teamed with Cameron Ella Ava in a main event loss to Tarah Nova and Haruna Sakazaki. She didn't appear again until Thunderstruck on August 12, attacking April Song during her Lethal Specialist Championship match against Jocelyn Sky. On the August 27 episode of Monday Night LAW, Jaxon interrupted Song's in-ring segment to say that she would "end" her.
In January 2016, Jaxon signed with Roc Nation Sports, becoming the first professional wrestler to do so. She also became a Tapout spokeswoman that same month. She began modeling for Beyoncé's Ivy Park activewear line in April 2016, and became the first professional wrestler with a CoverGirl contract in May 2016. In July 2016, several female Elitists were the inspiration for a collection distributed by MAC Cosmetics, with a "Pink Lemonade" palette being marketed for Jaxon. She has appeared on the covers of the July 2016 issue of Muscle & Fitness Hers and the June 2017 cover of Pro Wrestling Illustrated. She was also was featured in the August 2016 issue of GQ.
She was a cast member and executive producer of True Vixens and competed on season one of EAW Presents: The Trial. In July 2016, it was reported that she had been cast as the female lead in the EAW Studios film Married & Miserable, which was released in February 2017. She also produced episodes of Playmakers, of which she is the host, Home Sweet Home, and Prank'd.
Jaxon appeared in three EAW video games, making her in-game debut in EAW 2K16 (DLC) and returning in EAW 2K17 and EAW 2K18 (where she was one of the cover stars). She has so far appeared in two OWA video games, OWA 2K19 (where she was one of the cover stars) and OWA 2K20.
Jaxon took on several more acting roles after signing with OWA, due in large part to the company's working agreement between Netflix and the OWA Network streaming service. Beginning in the fall of 2018, she played a leading role as professional basketball cheerleader Sabrina Devereux on Swish. She was also cast as Katrina Tyson in Honor Among Thieves and Britney Carter in Payday, two different miniseries. Beginning in August 2018, she was credited as an executive producer and showrunner of Odyssey, OWA's women's brand. In January 2019, Jaxon was named the Chief Brand Officer of OWA, marking her first time holding an executive position.
Since March 2019, Jaxon has been the president of her own production company, 1942 Productions. She has received production credits on Goddesses, Inc., OWT Embedded, and Blackout, among others.
In April 2019, Jaxon became a spokesmodel for Fenty Beauty.

Jackson-LeBeau lives in the Hollywood Hills, and also spends time in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and her father's hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. She speaks Louisiana Creole French and admires Beyoncé, who played her to the ring at Pain for Pride X. She enjoys comic book media, having worn ring attire inspired by Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Katana, and Venom. Jackson-LeBeau is also a fan of the Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Dodgers. She identifies as a Christian.
She is known for dying her hair, which has been described as "an important part of her branding and in-ring persona". In December 2014, Jackson-LeBeau dyed her hair red. In January 2016, she dyed it hot pink. In October 2017, she dyed it electric blue in honor of longtime friend Brody Sparks; she also began wearing a black armband with Sparks' logo on it during matches. Sparks was an avid fan of alternative metal band Deftones and had the band's White Pony logo tattooed on the nape of her neck; in memory of her, Jackson-LeBeau got the same tattoo on her left shoulder blade. In March 2018, she briefly dyed her hair black. In April 2018, she dyed her hair purple. In February 2019, she reintroduced the hot pink hair color, which she considers her "signature shade". In August 2019, she dyed her hair dark blue. In addition to the tribute tattoo to Sparks, she has three additional tattoos: a portrait of her late maternal great-grandmother, Drusilla Rubin, on the inside of her right forearm, an Aquarius symbol on the right side of her ribcage, and "elle croyait qu'elle pouvait alors elle l'a fait" (French for "she believed she could, so she did") on the inside of her left forearm.
Jackson-LeBeau began dating Aren Mstislav in March 2016. In July 2017, it was revealed that the couple became engaged on June 24, 2017, and they were quietly married in January 2019. Chantal LeBeau is her cousin and Gia and Sarita Cervantes are her sisters-in-law. She describes herself as being "really, ridiculously close" with CM Nas and Stephanie Matsuda, and also maintains friendships with Keelan Callihan, Finnegan Wakefield, Scott Oasis, Kenny Drake, Nate Cage, Natalie Cage and Julianna DeMarco. She is also good friends with Persephone Bane, with Jackson-LeBeau and Mstislav acting as godparents to her son, Kyler. She cites Jackie Cruz, Miss Manami, Cameron Ella Ava, Brian Daniels, and Jaywalker as her chief inspirations in wrestling.
