Nia Jax returns to the ring on WWE Raw


Nia Jax returned to television on tonight's Raw and wrestled for the first time since July.

Jax was back on TV as part of a storyline where Ember Moon needed to find a partner for her match against Alicia Fox & Mickie James. A selfie promo with Alexa Bliss, Fox, and James aired before the match, with them mocking Moon and challenging her to find a partner.

The heels isolated Moon until Jax finally tagged in near the end of the match. James broke up a pin, Moon hit The Eclipse on James, and Jax pinned Fox after giving her a Samoan drop.

Jax had been out of action with a leg injury prior to returning tonight. After winning the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania, Jax dropped the title back to Bliss when Bliss interfered in Jax vs. Ronda Rousey at Money in the Bank and cashed in her MITB briefcase. Jax also lost to Bliss at Extreme Rules, with Rousey going on to win the title from Bliss at SummerSlam last month.
