Former WWE star Nia Jax is unlikely to wrestle again



Former WWE star noted on Twitter that she's unlikely to wrestle again. She also made it clear to fans that Lina Fanene is her real name and not a "ring" name. She was born as Savelina Fanene and "Lina" is just a shortened version of her first name.

Fanene tweeted, "Lol! Newflash..Lina is my real name. It’s not another “ring” name. It’s just MY NAME, the name given to me at birth. Calm TF down trolls. In all fairness, “Opponent Crippler” would be a SOLID front runner if I ever decide to wrestle again. but it’s highly unlikely"

Jax was among the names released by WWE a few weeks ago. The New York Post reported that she was let go because she was unvaccinated. She has since come out and said that she was on a break from WWE because she was taking a mental break and she was not told that her vaccination status was an issue.
