Nia Jax and Lana had quite an interesting career in the WWE. Both started their WWE journey with Triple H’s NXT before they were called to the main roster. While Nia tasted championship gold, Lana never got to shine on the main roster during her solo run. Now they are set to meet again outside of WWE.
The former WWE stars are returning to the ring for the first time since their WWE days. Lana was released from WWE on June 2, 2021. Nia had her walking papers handed to her on November 4th, 2021.
The two will square off against each other in a match to determine the first-ever Women’s World Champion of Wrestling Entertainment Series. WES is a new wrestling promotion created by former WWE stars Authors of Pain.
The first show for the Wrestling Entertainment Series will go down on June 4th from the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England. The pay-per-view event will be available to stream on FITE TV. Here’s the card announced for the event:
