Last year, Nia Jax disappeared from TV after requiring double surgery [1]. About 10 months later and she is ready for her return.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter [2] noted that Nia is ready to get back inside the ring. Also, they mentioned how Nia has been spited at the WWE Performance Center the past several weeks.

Fans have not seen Nia seen WrestleMania 35 [3]. At the event, she took part in a fatal four-way match for the Women’s Tag Team Championship. She teamed with Tamina Snuka, but came up short as The IIconics left with the belts.

With WrestleMania 36 right around the corner and WWE starting to finalize the card, Nia might miss the event. There is always a chance WWE add her into the Women’s Battle Royal. While that match has not been confirmed, WWE has been using that gimmick the past two years. It also WWE showcase some talent from NXT and also gives all the women on the main roster a chance to work WrestleMania. Although, Having Nia enter as a surprise entrant and winning would be an easy way to bring her right back into the fold.

Whatever happens, Nia will look to get back in the title picture and claim gold like she did in 2018. No word if WWE would give her a singles run or have her team with Tamina again. While away, Nia has stayed very a time on social media.

Rob Van Dam’s Marijuana Strain

Right now, one could argue that Matt Riddle is the biggest name in WWE that is also related to marijuana. Before Riddle even started wrestling, Rob Van Dam (RVD) had always been a proponent of the substance as it helps deal with his 1,000s of concussions [12]. Now, he is apparently going into business with his own strain.

It is no coincidence that the strain will be available on 4/20. For those unaware, the date is associated as a day to celebrate and enjoy the drug.

While RVD might be a fan of marijuana, it has also caused him problems in the past. The most memorable was in 2006. Shortly after winning the WWE Championship for the first time and also being crowned the inaugural ECW Champion when the brand relaunched under the WWE name, he was arrested with Sabu for possession. Both were in violation of the WWE’s new Wellness Policy and suspend for 30 days. Within days of the arrest, RVD lost both titles on TV.

RVD recently told fans that he told WWE that he would blow the biggest opportunity of his career [15]. While he would return, he never reached that same pinnacle of success. 

Currently, RVD is part of the Impact Wrestling roster. He now works as a heel, which is something he rarely does.
