Mickie James to challenge Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver Toronto special

WWE announced Instagram on Thursday night that former WWE Women’s and Divas Champion Mickie James would make her NXT debut on November 19 at the NXT TakeOver: Toronto special challenging Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship.

This will be James’ first WWE appearance since 2010. James made her WWE debut back in 2005 in a storyline with Trish Stratus. Following her release from WWE in 2010, James jumped to TNA where she stayed until 2013.

James made a brief return to TNA in 2015 in a storyline involving Magnus (her husband in real life). She then remained active on the independent scene and worked dates for Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling promotion last summer.
