She would know best. Wrestlers get hurt every day and there is very little that can be done to stop it. The industry is a physical sport and that means there is no way to be completely safe. If nothing else, it might just come from wear and tear on the wrestlers’ bodies over time. Sometimes these injuries can be a lot worse than others, which often means a long road to recovery. That is the case with a current WWE wrestler and it might be a longer time than it seems.

Earlier this year, Nia Jax underwent surgery on both of her knees to repair her ACLs. That is quite the devastating injury and the kind of thing that can completely alter a career. Jax’s situation was no different and she has not wrestled since WrestleMania 35 back in April. A single ACL tear can put someone out for a year, which made it surprising that Jax was rumored to be training for a return. It seems to have been too good to be true.

Over the weekend, Jax responded to a tweet saying that she had been training for a return to the ring. In response to such rumors, Jax replied by saying “lies”, meaning that she is not training at the moment. This comes a few weeks after Jax posted a video to her Instagram page, showing her running the ropes at the Performance Center, saying that she was “testing out her new knees”. There is no word on when Jax is returning to the ring.

Jax has a long path to get back to the ring. Check out her surgery, plus her recent time in the Performance Center:

Opinion: This is a situation where it might depend on your definition of training. Jax has been at the Performance Center, but there is a difference between training for a return and running the ropes a few times. There is good reason to believe that Jax is going to be gone for a very long time, but I could understand why someone would see her running the ropes and think that she was coming back to the ring sooner rather than later.

What are you expecting when Jax returns? Will she ever return? Let us know in the comments below.
