Just a cameo. There are so many wrestlers on the WWE roster that it can be difficult to come up with something for everyone to do. With so much talent in the company, it can be quite the shakeup when someone else is added to the list. Every so often you will see a wrestler come in and then be gone again almost so fast, which seems to have been the case again this week.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Fast One: Booker T. Reveals Surprising Detail About His WWE Royal Rumble Appearance

Nia Jax made a surprise return to WWE in the women’s Royal Rumble, entering as the #30 entrant and being eliminated in just shy of two minutes. Jax did not appear on Monday Night Raw and as of Tuesday night, is still listed in the Alumni section of WWE.com. There is nothing to suggest that she has signed a new deal with the company or will be appearing regularly going forward, though this could still change. Jax is also currently advertised for the Big Horror Event on March 10 and 11 under her real name and “FKA Nia Jax”, suggesting she cannot use the ring name.

Jax is a force when she is around. Check out what she can do in WWE:

Opinion: Jax is a star, albeit a controversial one, and it was a surprise to see her back in WWE after such a long time away. I’m not sure how well she would do back as a full time star, but for a one off appearance like this, it went rather well. What matters is having a special moment for WWE in the Royal Rumble, which is at least partially built around the idea of surprises.

What did you think of Jax’s return? Do you want her back full time? Let us know in the comments below.
