‘The Irresistible Force’ can now call herself a Queen after slaying Lyra Valkyria in Jeddah.

Nia Jax has won WWE’s second Queen of the Ring tournament.

‘The Irresistible Force’ defeated recent main roster call-up Lyra Valkyria in around nine-and-a-half minutes, putting the former NXT Women’s Champion away via Annihilator. Jax now advances to challenge for the WWE Women’s Championship on August 3 at SummerSlam, which will mark Jax’s second marquee Premium Live Event showdown of the year; she previously challenged then-Women’s World Champion, Rhea Ripley at Elimination Chamber: Perth February gone by.

Nia Jax reached the finals of the Queen of the Ring by first pinning Naomi, following up with a disqualification victory over Jade Cargill one week later. From there, Jax would defeat Bianca Belair, Cargill’s WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships-winning partner, on the go-home SmackDown in Jeddah.

Lyra Valkyria, meanwhile, wrestled a career-defining series of matches throughout her tournament journey, defeating Dakota Kai, Zoey Stark, and IYO SKY to earn her spot on the Saudi Arabian card. With this trio of victories, Valkyria’s main roster run saw her, within three matches, defeat a former multi-time Women’s Tag Team Champion and a former WWE and NXT Women’s Champion.

WWE Hall Of Famer “Pulling” For Nia Jax To Strike Gold

Although Nia Jax is a former Raw Women’s and Women’s Tag Team Champion, championship gold has alluded her since 2021 - something that WWE Hall of Famer Booker T is “pulling” to see change imminently. The multi-time World Heavyweight Champion discussed the possibility of Nia Jax winning another title on his Hall of Fame podcast:

“When she came back, I thought Nia Jax was primed for that spot. Everybody’s road to the championship is a little bit different. Some are a little bit bumpier than others and Nia Jax has definitely been on that bumpy road to becoming a champion. So for me, I don’t know, she’s just had a bumpy road, but I’m pulling for Nia Jax to become champion. I’m pulling for Nia Jax and I think it’s going to happen for her one day.

Nia Jax reigned for 70 days as Raw Women’s Champion between WrestleMania 34 and the 2018 Money in the Bank pay-per-view, while her two runs as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion lasted 112 and 103 days, respectively.
