According to Nia Jax, one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, both her and partner Shayna Baszler will return to WWE Monday Night Raw tonight.

Nia Jax confirmed the pair’s return in a tweet following NXT TakeOver 31.

Both Jax and Baszler have been absent from WWE television since Clash of Champions on September 27 when the pair were withdrawn from their championship defence against The Riott Squad.

On the night WWE announced them as not medically cleared, when in reality they were isolating after coming into contact with people who had tested positive for COVID-19.

Their return does seem a little premature, however, as anyone who has contact with someone that has tested positive is required to isolate for fourteen days.

While it has not been officially announced for tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler still must defend their gold against the duo of Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan. A match which if it doesn’t take place this evening, will be hyped and built for a later date.

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler defeated Sasha Banks and Bayley to capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships at WWE Payback on August 30, 2020.

Also on the October 5, Monday Night Raw, Drew McIntyre and The Street Profits vs. Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode while Bray Wyatt will either accept or decline the invitation to appear on The Kevin Owens Show.
