Backstage News on Mickie James’ WWE Return

As we reported, Mickie James will be returning to WWE for NXT TakeOver: Toronto to face current NXT Champion Asuka, however Bryan Alvarez noted on the Wrestling Observer Radio show that she may not have been WWE’s first option.



The company had intended to approach Trish Stratus to lock down some plans for this year and 2017, however her recent announcement of a second child means it’s likely attentions have now been turned to Mickie James. The implication is that Stratus was the company’s first choice.

In terms of Mickie James’ return, it is expected that she could work more dates and may also work at the WWE Performance Center later on.
