That doesn’t sound good. Wrestlers are rather unique people, but at the same time they do have some things that are always going to be the same. That includes the potential for getting injured, which can put someone on the shelf for any amount of time. Some injures are much worse than others, and now we have seen one wrestler put away for what seems to be a good while.

According to, Nia Jax was not backstage during this week’s WWE Draft and is expected to miss a significant amount of time. There is no word on what is wrong with Jax, but she was attacked by Shayna Baszler after a match on Monday Night Raw in September. Baszler crushed Jax’s arm to write her off of television, though Jax was still drafted to Monday Night Raw this weekend.

Jax is a force when she is healthy. Check out what she can do in the ring:

FULL MATCH - Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey – Raw Women’s Title Match: WWE Money in the Bank 2018

Charlotte Flair vs. Nia Jax: Raw, Aug. 30, 2021

Nia Jax & Ember Moon vs. Dana Brooke & Tamina: Raw, Oct. 15, 2018

Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on with Jax but hopefully she is going to be back in the ring sooner rather than later. Hopefully she is healthy and this isn’t a way to cover for some kind of real life health issue. Jax is one of the more unique stars in wrestling and can do a lot when she is able to get in the ring. You can’t just swap someone into her spot so we’ll have to see just how bad things are.

What do you think of Jax? What should she do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
