When a wrestler departs from WWE, they have several options to consider, including joining another promotion, working on the independent scene, or taking a hiatus from the business. For Nia Jax, her departure from WWE in 2021 led to a break from the wrestling industry. However, recent developments have ignited speculation that the former RAW Women’s Champion may be preparing for a comeback.
In 2021, Jax, real name Lina Fanene, was released by WWE due to budget cuts, along with several other stars. However, she made a surprise return for a one-off appearance at the 30-woman Royal Rumble match in January. Despite this brief comeback, Jax did not return to WWE full-time and had not competed in a match since her departure in November 2021.
Recently, Nia Jax was spotted back in the wrestling ring as she trained at D-Von Dudley’s wrestling academy. This sighting has fueled speculation among fans that Jax may be gearing up for a return to wrestling, although no official confirmation has been made.
WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley shared a video on his Twitter account, showcasing Nia Jax working with one of his students in the ring.
“You never know who you will see at D-von Dudley Academy (DDA) as former WWE superstar Nia working with some of the students here at DDA. #DDA #wwe.”
The video further fueled speculation about Jax’s potential wrestling comeback.
Last month, Nia Jax took to Instagram to share a video of her training session with wrestler Kaci Lennox. In the post, Jax expressed her enjoyment of working with Lennox and praised her talent. She also mentioned the intense heat in the warehouse where they trained but emphasized that it did not hinder their session.
The Instagram post added to the growing speculation surrounding Jax’s return to the wrestling ring.
