Nia Jax confirms injury rumours after tearing both ACLs in her knees

There's been few more dominant female wrestlers than Nia Jax in the WWE in recent years.

Since she made her breakthrough in the NXT system, the relation of wrestling legend The Rock has been a force to be reckoned with in the squared circle.

Jax was given a huge push when she debuted on Raw in 2016, but it took her until last year's WrestleMania to win her first Women's Championship, defeating Alexa Bliss in New Orleans.

More recently though after losing the belt in June, Jax has formed an alliance with Tamina, turning heel in the process, and the two were on the losing end in a Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 35 last week.

Both did not appear on television this week though, and it now seems like there was a legitimate reason for the no-show of Jax.

As confirmed by the superstar herself, Jax will undergo double knee surgery after suffering Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears in both knees.

Painful indeed, even more so when she stated that she has been suffering for over a year.

Jax posted on social media that she is grateful for the fans support, and who knows, we may see her return next year as a babyface.

Maybe not though as some may not still forgive her for breaking Becky Lynch's face before Survivor Series last year, a move which arguably made her the biggest heel in the company at the time.

Depending on the severity of the tears, Jax could be out of action for well over a year, but at the same time she may recover quicker and be back for the Royal Rumble in 2020.

The injury comes in the same week that New Day member Big E revealed he was also having knee issues, but his recovery is expected to be around six weeks as he deals with a meniscus issue.
