Welcome back. The Coronavirus has certainly taken its toll on the WWE roster and that is going to be the case on and off for a good while to come. It is horrible to see but it is happening to all kinds of people around the world. WWE is no exception, as several of its wrestlers are being forced out of the ring for one reason or another. While not confirmed, that seemed to be the case recently but now things may be turning around.
Last weekend at Clash Of Champions, a pair of matches had to be changed on the day of the show due to various unspecified medical issues. This is the kind of thing that you cannot see coming, but it also happened at the same time of a Coronavirus outbreak in the WWE locker room. Some champions did not make the show that Sunday night, but they will be back soon enough.
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Nia Jax has announced on Twitter that she and her partner Shayna Baszler will be making their returns on Monday Night Raw and defending their titles. This comes after the two missed Clash Of Champions after coming into contact with someone who had tested positive for the Coronavirus, though the two have not tested positive themselves. There is no word on what they will be doing on the show.
Guess who is going to be on #RAW tomorrow night, kicking some ASH, retaining some titles, with a fresh weave and looking DAMN GOOD!
I’ll give you a hint…NOT my tag partner.
I mean, she will be there, but she won’t have a fresh weave ?

The team has been a success so far. Check out what they can do together:
Opinion: This is quite the relief whether you like the team or not. They might not be the most popular team, but you never want to see anyone sick or even close to it. Thankfully their absence did not last long and the team is only going to have missed a few shows instead of being gone for a long time with something a lot worse. Hopefully this is the last issue we hear of for a long time, but that is not the most likely situation.
What do you think of the team? Who will take the titles from them? Let us know in the comments below.
