WWE apparently had plans for a big homecoming at NXT Takeover in Toronto. On Friday’s Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said that there were plans for Trish Stratus to wrestle on a few dates towards the end of the year but those plans changed when Trish learned that she is pregnant.
It’s possible that Mickie James will be wrestling on shows beyond NXT Takeover since they would probably need to fill in Trish’s spot. I think the idea to have Trish return in Toronto is a good one especially since the show will be taking place in her hometown. It’s a shame that things couldn’t work out this time but perhaps she’ll be back for an appearance next year after she gives birth.
The whole deal to bring back Mickie was put together a couple of days before it was announced at the NXT tapings.
