Former RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax wasn’t present on Monday Night RAW this week.

Jax noted on Instagram Stories that she is currently at home undergoing rehabilitation. The female powerhouse did not provide any other details on what kind of injury she has suffered and whether she needs to take an extended amount of time off the road owing to her (supposed) injury.

This goes on to explain why Jax was not present on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. The former RAW Women’s Champion was also absent from the weekend live events and also missed last week’s episode of RAW. Jax is currently not slated for a match at SummerSlam.

Jax won the RAW Women’s Championship from Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania 34. She then challenged Ronda Rousey and the two tore the house down at Money In The Bank. However, Alexa Bliss interfered in the match right when Ronda had put Nia in the (in)famous armbar. Bliss attacked the former UFC Bantamweight Champion, cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase and pinned Nia to capture the title.

The only thing worth noting here is the fact that Jax has been dealing with back issues since 2014 when she was a victim of a car accident caused by a drunk driver. Hopefully Jax has a speedy recovery and shows up on RAW at the earliest.
