WWE says Nia Jax needs elbow surgery, will be out an undisclosed amount of time

Back when she was a dominant NXT singles champion rather than a WWE tag champ who loses a lot, Shayna Baszler kayfabe injured several opponents by stomping on their prone elbow.

The Queen of Spades used that old move when she finally broke free of her partnership with Nia Jax on the Sept. 20 edition of Raw. WWE is saying Bazler broke Jax’s elbow in the process.

Kayla Braxton updated Nia’s condition on The Bump this morning (Sept. 22). While this sounds vague enough to be a storyline description, it also sounds like they’re writing Jax off for a while.

“Per the WWE medical staff doctors, Nia Jax suffered an elbow posterior fracture, dislocation to her left elbow. This will require surgery, and we are told that Nia will be out for an undisclosed amount of time. We will continue updating you as the story develops.”

We will also keep you posted on anything we hear about this story. For now, it seems Shayna is ready for a new feud.
