It looks like we will see the WWE return of a former RAW Women’s Champion at tonight’s event.
PW Insider has confirmed that Nia Jax is backstage at the Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas, and will be competing in tonight’s Royal Rumble match.
“Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax is backstage at the Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas and will be competing in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match tonight, PWInsider.com has confirmed. I reported on my Elite audio this past Monday that there had been scuttlebutt among some in the company that she would be working the show, but at the time we weren’t able to 100% confirm. Well, now, we can,” per PWInsider.
While Nia Jax will be competing in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, The Rock’s cousin still hasn’t signed a new deal with WWE and is only working this one match as of writing this article.
