Nia Jax back in the ring at the WWE Performance Center
Nia Jax provided an update for her in-ring return when she posted a video on her Instagram account showing her running the ropes at the WWE Performance Center with the comment “Testing out the new knees!”
Jax has been out of action since April when she tore both of her ACLs. The recovery time for such an injury usually takes around 9 to 12 months so this update is extremely positive and could mean her in-ring return is right around the corner.
We last saw Nia in action at WrestleMania 35 where she took part in the Women’s Tag Team Championship match with Tamina vs The IIconics, Sasha Banks and Bayley, and Beth Phoenix and Natalya. So it would be great to Nia return before then.
A surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble would make a perfect return for Jax. A big pop, beat up and throw out a few opponents, reassert her dominance and get back to kicking some ass. Her return in 2020 would definitely give either of the RAW or SmackDown rosters something to think about.
Due to the injury, Jax wasn’t included in the most recent draft so it is unknown which brand she would be a part of upon her return.
Carmella on Her In-Ring Future, the Women of WWE Making History, Wanting To Be a Role Model
Carmella recently spoke with The Fayetteville Observer to promote tonight’s WWE SmackDown. Regarding her future in the ring, the former Women’s Champion said she’s not sure when she wants to retire, and she’s not ready to slow down any time soon. She was asked how long she thinks she will continue to wrestle.
“That’s a great question. I have no idea,” Carmella said. “There’s no cap. Right now I’m 32 years old, and I’m having a blast. I don’t know what the future holds, but I want to continue to be a part of this women’s revolution and make history. Right now is the best time to be a lady wrestler, especially in the WWE. We’re just taking over. I’m not ready to slow down anytime soon.”
The interviewer asked what she meant when she said it’s a good time to be a lady wrestler. Carmella talked about the women’s revolution, and said she couldn’t be more proud of the WWE women.
“Yes, we’re in the middle of a women’s revolution,” Carmella said. “The women are making history left and right. I was lucky enough to be the very first woman in a ladder match for the money in the bank contract for the women and that was a historical moment and I’m so grateful that my name will always go down in history for that. But you know, the women are main eventing now, and that wasn’t something that was ever heard of before for the women. We’re just breaking barriers, and I couldn’t be more proud of our women.”
Carmella was also asked about her goals beyond pro wrestling. She said she’s focused on getting the SmackDown Women’s Title back, but she’s also interested in being a role model for younger girls.
“Right now I’m really just focused on getting the SmackDown championship back,” Carmella said. “But beyond wrestling, I’m really trying to use my voice and platform to spread a message to young girls that they can do whatever it is they want to do. Nowadays there’s so much negativity with social media and everyone’s physical image. I’m trying to help little girls know that, whatever it is they want to do they can do it. If you’re getting bullied or you’re getting made fun of for the way you look or anything like that, you can’t listen to what those people say, you have to believe in yourself and know that anything you can put your mind to, you can make happen. It’s all about believing in yourself and being true to who you are.”
