It’s as good of a time as any to return from the injured list. Injures are something that happens to every wrestler at some point in their careers. They are annoying and can be devastating, but if they aren’t the worst kind, it means that wrestlers can recover from them, occasionally even better than ever. There are several wrestlers waiting to do just that, and now we might know when two of them are going to be back.
The WWE women’s division has made some incredible strides in the last year and a half. What once was little more than filler content for the shows has become one of the focal points of the company. A women’s match even headlined WrestleMania 35 earlier this year in a moment that stunned many fans. The division could use some fresh blood though and that may be the case sooner than expected.
According to Fightful Select, both Nia Jax and Ruby Riott may be returning to the ring at January’s Royal Rumble. Both have an internal return date of January 2020, with the Royal Rumble taking place on January 26. Jax has been out of action since WrestleMania 35 after having both ACLs replaced. Riott has been out of action since May due to undergoing double shoulder surgery. There is a chance that their returns could be saved for a later date.
Both of them can go when they’re healthy. Check out the two of them in action:
Opinion: This would be a great boost to the division as both of them could add a lot to either brand’s women’s scene. Jax is a one of a kind performer due to her size and monster presence. On the other hand, Riott has a way of carrying herself on the microphone that gets your attention and a look that does the same. Either of them could do a lot of good things, so hopefully they’re back sooner rather than later.
Which of these two will have a bigger impact? Where do you want them to wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
