Nia Jax made her long-awaited return on WWE Raw, defeating Deonna Purrazzo in short order. Jax had been off television for nearly a year after undergoing double ACL surgery following WrestleMania 35 in 2019.
In her return match, Nia busted out a move that was familiar to WWE fans, but new to Jax's arsenal, hitting Purrazzo with the Rampaige (cradle DDT) previously used by Paige.
Paige took to social media following the bout to confirm that nothing was stolen from her and that she gave Jax permission to use the move.

In an interview with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda in January, Paige named Nia Jax as the person she would like to manage should she return to that role.
Did we just see @NiaJaxWWE using the Rampaige on #WWERAW? Perhaps we may see an alliance forming soon --— -------- -------------- (@consciousgary) April 7, 2020
I asked @RealPaigeWWE in January who she’d like to manage in WWE, and there was one name at the very top of the list... #RAW pic.twitter.com/HZ8GQAxGVa
