Nia Jax has shown off her epic transformation after dyeing her hair bright pink.

The former superstar – who was – hasn’t wrestled since losing to Shayna Baszler on Raw two months earlier, and fans will be stunned by her new look.

Going by her real name Lina Fanene, the star shared a stunning selfie on Instagram showing off her fresh style, with her hair straightened and dyed a pastel pink.

She simply captioned the photo with a red heart and shining star emoji, while her friends and fans were quick to offer kind words in the comments.

Former WWE broadcaster Renee Paquette – known as Renee Young during her time with the company – replied: ‘Yessssss the bangs!!!’

SmackDown star Charlotte Flair called Lina ‘stunning’, and Raquel Rodriguez added: ‘Wooooooo siiiii mamiii 🔥🔥🔥 más massss!!!!!’

In a statement last Wednesday, WES confirmed the show had been axed, and put the blame on wrestlers pulling out late in the day – although many performers initially advertised have dismissed this version of events.

‘For now we will have to apologize for this, but we promise that it will not end here. See you soon!’

She had already revealed on June 23 she wouldn’t be appearing as she accused the promotion of being unprofessional, while Fightful Select reported that poor ticket sales – between 300 and 400 for the 10,000 capacity venue – were partly to blame for the show’s cancellation.

Meanwhile, the star had previously suggested , while she has also claimed she for a Royal Rumble return back in January.
