Two other divas either returned or debuted...
During Thursday night's NXT live event in Tampa, Florida, Raquel Diaz made her return after leaving WWE last year. She participated in a T-shirt giveaway with Becky Lynch, Devin Taylor, Lana, Veronica Lane, Jojo and Leah Van Damme.
Diaz (Shaun Guerrero) had requested her release in September of last year and confirmed the departure on Twitter. Last month, her mother Vickie posted that Diaz was moving back to Orlando to report to the WWE Performance Center. Diaz then reactivated her character's account and said she was "back."
Devin Taylor also returned at the show. Taylor is a former model and freelance television reporter. She was out after a dislocated knee in July. She shared ring announcing duties with Lynch.
Leah Van Damme made her debut at the event. In addition to being a former cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers and the New England Patriots, she is the daughter of former wrestler Paul Vandale, who was a jobber in the World Wrestling Federation from the late 80s to the mid-90s (right around when enhancement talent was phased out due to the WWF's battle with WCW). He had losses to Owen Hart, Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Mr. Perfect, Razor Ramon, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka and Big Bossman, among others.
Van Damme wrote on her Twitter account that her father fought Razor Ramon in Razor's first ever WWF match. WWE posted video of that match yesterday:
