Former WWE Women’s Champion to Return to NXT


As previously reported, it has been announced by WWE that Mickie James will make her return to the company at next month’s NXT TakeOver: Toronto event to challenge Asukafor the NXT Women’s Championship.

In an update, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that in terms of Mickie’s future with WWE, she has only signed on to appear at this particular event; however, the possibility is still there for her to make future appearances, and there is also a rumor that she has been offered a job at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

This same report also states that there were apparently plans for WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus to make a return to the company at some point this year, possibly for this match; however, now that Stratus is pregnant with her second child, it appears as though WWE has opted to bring back Mickie instead.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
