Her release has also affected her in-ring name, with WWE legally owning her former persona. Now, with the ex-WWE superstar has revealed a newly updated name on her website and social media.
Nia Jax will now be going by Lina Fanene, which happens to be a shorter version of her real name, Savelina Fanene. Her most recent bio also shows her identifying herself as her formerly being Nia Jax of WWE & E! Total Divas.
As of yet, she doesn’t have any upcoming appearances listed nor has she written her email down for booking inquiries for now. It’s going to be intriguing to see Nia Jax – now known as Lina Fanene – arriving elsewhere when her non-compete clause ends.
Nia Jax isn’t the only one amongst the long list of wrestlers that have changed their name since getting their release from WWE.

After her release it had come to light that she was taking a mental health break, so she could re-energize herself. Nia came out with a statement on her WWE release to clarify everything and put things into perspective.
Earlier this week, after WWE sent me my schedule to return to the ring for the November 15 show, I asked for an extension to my mental health break, feeling that I needed more time, and hoping I would have the ongoing support of the company I have given my all to for the past 7 years. I did not receive a response. The next I heard, I was being released. My vaccination status was never mentioned. I wasn’t given any choices or options.
