So long? One of the worst things that can happen to a wrestler is a devastating injury. Something like that can put them on the shelf for months at a time and completely derail their career. They are forced to start all over when they come back and often times, they are never the same. The silver lining to such an injury is being able to reinvent yourself, and a WWE star may be doing just that.

Nia Jax, currently out recovering from knee surgery, has removed all WWE references from her Instagram and deleted her Twitter account. There is no word on what this means at the moment, though there is no word on any heat between her and WWE. It is possible that she is reacting to a bad moment and wants a break, or it could be part of a new character or storyline she is working on while she is out. Jax is scheduled to return to the ring in 2020.

Jax has had an interesting year. Check out this angle that had potential:

Nia Jax attacks Dean Ambrose: Raw, Jan. 28, 2019

Opinion: I’m not sure what this means but it’s going to be a good while before we see Jax again in WWE. There is no way of knowing if this is some kind of a story or just Jax taking a break from social media. That is a fairly common practice and maybe she just needs a little time away from everything. She has certainly earned that and if this helps her, so be it.

What do you want to see Jax do when she returns? Would a new character help her? Let us know in the comments below.
