In a recent update, Fightful Select reveals that Jax has been under a WWE contract for over a month now. This comes as no surprise to several insiders within WWE, who had been expecting her return even before tonight's appearance.
Initial buzz about Jax's potential return began circulating on August 8, as reported by PWInsider. Their follow-up coverage after tonight’s RAW further substantiates that Jax is officially back under a WWE contract, likely since early August when talks of her return first emerged. Contrary to speculation, Fightful's update confirms that Jax's return during tonight’s RAW, which marks the last show fully managed by the McMahon Family, has no connection to the impending Endeavor acquisition slated to finalize the WWE-UFC merger.
