After a one year hiatus, Nia Jax made her return to WWE television this week on Monday Night Raw.

Jax has been out of action since last April after undergoing double-ACL surgery. She was cleared several weeks ago but the decision was made to have her return on the Raw after WrestleMania (taped a couple of weeks ago). She likely would have been in the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal had the match not been scrapped.

In her return match, Jax wrestled NXT star Deonna Purrazzo. The finish was a Samoa Drop and the cradle DDT in what was essentially a squash match.

There is no word yet on who Jax will be feuding with but the Money In The Bank pay-per-view is coming up on May 10 so it's possible that she will be inserted into the title hunt picture soon.
