Nia Jax Returns To WWE On 9/11 WWE RAW

Nia Jax has made her shocking return to WWE.

The September 11 episode of WWE RAW was headlined by Raquel Rodriguez challenging Rhea Ripley for the WWE Women’s World Championship. After several minutes of thrilling action, Nia Jax blindsided Rodriguez and attacked her at ringside. In doing so, she helped Ripley beat Rodriguez and retain the gold.

Jax proceeded to lay Ripley out after the bell, proving that she wasn’t on the champion’s side either.

Monday marked Jax’s first appearance in a WWE ring since her return at WWE Royal Rumble 2023. Jax, a former RAW Women’s Champion, was released in a series of cuts in November 2021.
