Jax's Dramatic Return
Yet, as the dust settled on an enthralling contest, the narrative took a sharp and unexpected turn. When the audience thought they'd witnessed all the night's drama, Nia Jax made her emphatic return to WWE, ultimately shifting the dynamics of the showdown.

She soon shifted her focus to Ripley, sending a loud and clear message to the entire women's division: Nia Jax is back, and she's hungry for gold.
This wasn't entirely unforeseen, however. A month ago, the rumour mill was abuzz with whispers of Jax's imminent return. She ad hinted at being in training and on standby for that crucial call from WWE.
Moreover, she subtly dropped hints on social media, suggesting she hadn't forgotten her Royal Rumble elimination at the hands of Ripley earlier this year.
