Candice LeRae has officially made her comeback to WWE.
The “Poison Pixie” made her return to the company on the September 26, 2022 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, making her first appearance since 2021 when she was in WWE’s NXT developmental brand. While away from professional wrestling, she and her husband Johnny Gargano had a son named Quill earlier this year, while the two also celebrated the birth — Gargano made his return to WWE in August, being placed on the red brand.
During Candice LeRae’s debut, she took on Nikki Cross in a bout, getting a victory. This was also the last match where Cross was known as Nikki A.S.H. A few weeks later, she ended up in a rivalry against Damage CTRL, taking a defeat to Dakota Kai, however, getting an upset win against faction leader Bayley. On the October 24, 2022 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, LeRae took part in an interview with Cathy Kelley while backstage, and during so, she was attacked by Damage CTRL. Since then, LeRae hasn’t been seen on WWE TV.
However, on the November 28, 2022 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Candice LeRae made her comeback to WWE, once again being interviewed by Cathy Kelley. LeRae wondered why Damage CTRL launched an attack on her, saying that she was curious if they thought she was an old version of herself. Then, LeRae snatched the microphone, and said that she was going to re-introduce herself to the stable. Later in the night, she took out Dakota Kai in a singles match.
