Looks like wrestling fans won’t have Nia Jax to complain about for a while.
Pro Wrestling Sheet reports the former Raw Women’s champion will require surgery to both her knees, as she’s torn the ACL in both. Jax seemed to confirm the news with the tweet a short time ago:
I’ll be gone for a while. Here’s something to remember me by pic.twitter.com/N1XEMn9qYz— (@NiaJaxWWE) April 12, 2019
No word from WWE, or any news on a timeline for her return. 6 - 9 months is a standard rehabilitation schedule for ACL repair; Seth Rollins was out for five months in 2015 - 16.
Nia’s always controversial, but we’re still wishing the best for a successful surgery and speedy recovery. We’ll keep you up to date with new about the injury and treatment.
