Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Nia Jax and Samantha Irvin:

• Before making her full-time return to WWE recently, Nia Jax appeared as a surprise entrant in the 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble match.

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Veteran & Producer Tyson Kidd revealed that he brought back Nia for the Royal Rumble:

“I was really proud of the Women’s Royal Rumble this year. I loved it. I thought all the drama and the suspense at the end with Liv, Rhea, and Asuka was exactly what we were looking for, and the truth is I had a whole different finish planned using Nia, who I got okayed to come in as a surprise entrant. She wasn’t re-signed yet at that point.

I had a whole different finish involving her. And it got changed, maybe two days before, and um, everything in like, Oh, I’m not going to come up with anything better, you know, felt a little frustrated, not mad at anybody, that’s the game.

Sometimes, your idea goes through, and sometimes there are little tweaks. And so what’s funny is I learned a very, very valuable lesson, and I’ve come up with a way better finish than the one I had mapped out.”

• WWE Ring Announcer Samantha Irvin posted a selfie on Twitter, which received the following response from a fan:

“All this… you married a mid carder…”

Samantha then defended Ricochet, her fiancé, and fired back with the following tweet:

“*a future WWE Hall of Famer, future Grand Slam Champ, a GOAT High Flyer, an internationally known elite athlete, an inspiration to millions in all age groups AND a man who was with me before it all started, believed in my dream & built me up the entire way through.

fixed it! :)”
