The Raw women's division was bolstered with a new addition last night.
Candice LeRae made her surprise return to WWE on last night's episode of Raw, wrestling her first match in more than a year. LeRae is the latest wrestler to return to WWE under the Paul "Triple H" Levesque regime.
In her return match, LeRae defeated Nikki A.S.H. There was also a backstage segment later in the night where LeRae got into a confrontation with Damage CTRL. It was announced that LeRae will face Dakota Kai on Raw next Monday.
The return was a main roster call-up for LeRae, who was previously part of NXT. LeRae and Johnny Gargano welcomed their first child, a boy named Quill, into the world this February. LeRae's contract with WWE had expired this May.
Gargano tweeted after LeRae returned last night:
