The idea of a full-time comeback is something Jax is not against. 

As a part of the 2023 women’s Royal Rumble, Nia Jax made her return to WWE. She was eliminated when the rest of the talents in the ring banded together to get her over the top rope. 

When Jax went into that appearance, she was not expecting or planning on a full-time back. She relayed that information to Busted Open Radio and added that when she appeared in front of the audience, she caught ‘the bug’. If Nia did return, she would be up for helping anyone she could and adding to the division.

So I had just agreed to do the (Royal) Rumble and so, but you know, the unsurety of myself right now, I wasn’t in the best shape and I wasn’t expecting to come back full-time because it takes a lot to come back full-time. We know it. It’s not just something like, oh hey, I’m gonna hit the gym for a couple of months and be in it. It’s a whole process and so I wasn’t expecting to come back full-time at the Rumble. I did catch the bug again when I got in the ring. I was like, ouu, this feeling, this adrenaline that pumps through you, you know? I was breathing super hard before I went out and you know, Kasama (WWE producer) was backstage helping me breathe through it and I had a bunch of the guys come by and give me a hug and so when my music hit, that feeling of, oh sh*t, what the hell was I thinking? Let’s go. I did catch the bug after being in the Rumble which I was like, ah, maybe coming back would be a cool thing. I mean, if the people do remember me and the only thing I’d wanna do is to come back and help anybody out I could. I would love to add to the division. It would be something that I would love to do. Mickie (James) coming back and Mickie giving me psychology crap that I’ve never known, you know? Teaching me things that I never knew and getting in the ring with her, that was so amazing to me in my career that I’m like, if I have any kind of that knowledge that people would love to have, I would love to give and you know, whatever I could do. So, I don’t know, I don’t know.

The 2023 women’s Royal Rumble was won by Rhea Ripley who went on to WrestleMania 39 to defeat Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
