PWInsider is reporting that recently re-signed talent Mickie James is scheduled to be backstage the site of tonight’s Tuesday Night SmackDown Live and that the plan is for her to debut tonight.
On October 13, 2016, it was announced that James would return to WWE’s developmental brand NXT at the NXT Takeover: Toronto event on November 19, where she would compete on a match against the NXT Women’s Champion Asuka for the title. At the event, James was defeated by Asuka.
During the month of December ProWrestlingSheet reported that Mickie James was offered a new contract with WWE to compete on the main roster after impressing officials during her NXT Takeover match.
James successfully underwent medical tests to return to WWE last month and recently has been rumored to be the one that will be revealed as La Luchadora even though independent wrestler Deonna Purrazzo went under the mask at the last few episode of WWE SmackDown.
