Mickie James is rumored to return to WWE Smackdown on this week’s episode in Memphis, TN, according to reports being attributed to PWInsider.
The word on James is that she has signed a new three-year contract with WWE and the plan since signing is for her return to ‘team blue’ this month. James was offered the deal after returning to the company at WWE NXT Takeover: Toronto last November.
There is speculation about Mickie James being behind the La Luchadora gimmick. While the character was played by WWE NXT’s Deonna Purrazzo one week, that doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll be the one to play the character in a regular role.
Keep in mind that Alexa Bliss will defend the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship against Becky Lynch in a steel cage match on this week’s show, giving the opportunity to re-debut James if that’s the direction they wanted to go in.
