Last month, it was reported that Nia Jax was close to making her return to the ring. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, she was back working at the Performance Center and doing her best to get cleared.
A second report has come out, courtesy of PWInsider‘s Mike Johnson, stating that Jax is expected back anytime now. The former RAW Women’s Champion is medically cleared, and the company is just waiting for the right time. Johnson also stated in a separate report that Jax would now be part of the Blue brand. Not only that, but she’s expected to be at the tapings on Friday.
With Paige coming back to SmackDown this week to confront Bayley, it’s rumored she could be managing someone to challenge the champion. If that’s the case, we may see Jax in that role.
