The Women’s Revolution has caused all kinds of great changes to women’s wrestling in WWE today but the current generation of wrestlers have not come alone. The women who brought the Women’s Revolution to WWE were inspired by another group of wrestlers and some of them still pop up every now and then today. One of them will be doing so again, but not in the ring.
During this week’s edition of the Bump, former Women’s Champion Mickie James was announced as one of the hosts of the NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver Kickoff Show. James will be appearing on both nights of the show, which takes place on April 7 and 8. This will be one of James’ only appearances in NXT, other than a match against NXT Women’s Champion Asuka in 2016. She has not wrestled a match on WWE TV since this year’s women’s Royal Rumble in January.
It was a pretty cool moment. Check out the announcement and some of James’ time in the ring:
