Nia Jax made her shocking return to WWE last Monday night on RAW. In the main event match between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez, she took out both women and ended the show as the Last Woman Standing. While Ripley was visibly shocked, she did manage to retain her Women’s World Championship.
Hall of Fame journalist Bill Apter recently shared his views on Nia’s return and lauded WWE for managing to keep it a secret from the fans. In the internet era, it is rare to see a return being a secret, especially when it is supposed to make such a big impact like the one that Nia made on the RAW episode.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s show UnSKripted, Bill Apter gave his opinion on Nia’s return to WWE and said:
“But she attacked Rhea Ripley and made a hell of an impact by coming back like that. That was a shocking move; nobody knew that she was coming back. At least it wasn’t leaked anywhere on the internet. It was a nice surprise.”
“But to see her come back and manhandle Rhea Ripley like that. Wow! And fans were like, ‘We like Nia Jax, but why she is attacking.’ Does this make Nia Jax the bad girl, the heel in this feud? Because she just attacked her,” he added.
What’s next for Nia Jax on WWE RAW?
Jax made her stunning return to WWE and laid out a challenge to Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley by attacking her. It looks like fans will get a feud between Jax and Ripley on the red brand soon. The Women’s World Champion could defend her crown against The Irresistible Force at the next premium live event, which is WWE Fastlane.

As far as the RAW episodes are concerned, the build-up for this feud should continue. Even Raquel Rodriguez may have a role to play.
