Nia Jax has been side-lined with an injury as a result of the events of Monday Night RAW. The news was announced by WWE on their series The Bump. A statement has also been released on WWE.com, where the following has been said about the current status of Nia Jax:
As reported on WWE’s The Bump, Nia Jax suffered an elbow posterior fracture and dislocation to her left elbow which will require surgery after a vicious attack by Shayna Baszler last Monday on Raw.
She will be out for an undisclosed amount of time.
As noted in the statement, the injuries were inflicted by Nia’s former tag team partner Shayna Baszler. The former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions faced off in a singles match on the September 20th episode of RAW. Baszler easy won the match by chocking out Jax with the Kirifuda Clutch. Not contempt with just the victory, Shayna went on to brutalise her former partner on the outside of the ring with an attack on the steel steps.
As reported by WWE, there is no current window of return for the former RAW Women’s Champion. It is unknown whether this injury is legitimate or just a way to write The Irresistible Force off of television for a different reason.
Features of Wrestling will provide any updates to this story when they become available. In regards to Shayna Baszler, this vicious side sees a return to the more vicious side of The Queen of Spades, as seen in her dominant NXT run. Now being fully positioned as a singles competitor in WWE, this may also be possibly setting up Shayna for a Women’s Championship match in the near future.
