With Emma's recent return to the promotion and Chelsea Green and Tegan Nox reportedly in the company's sights as well, WWE is looking to "restock" its women's division. Fightful Select reports that the promotion hopes to sign a number of experienced, television-ready wrestlers for this purpose.
Emma ended a five-year WWE absence on last Friday's episode of SmackDown, making a surprise comeback by answering an open challenge laid down by Women's Champion Ronda Rousey. It has since been confirmed that the Australian, who worked primarily for IMPACT Wrestling and Ring Of Honor in her time away from WWE, has been re-signed.
Green, meanwhile, has been a high-profile regular in the WWE rumour mill lately, having recently wrapped her IMPACT comeback run. Fightful has confirmed the Green was amongst the names talked about for potential comebacks, though there's currently no word on whether or not a deal has been done. Chelsea told the outlet that WWE hasn't contacted her, adding that she has bookings in her calendar until March 2023.
WWE's interest in bringing Nox back was reported last week. She was released by WWE in November 2021, departing seven months after Green.
Triple H's WWE Signing Spree Continues
Triple H's reign as WWE's head of creative has coincided with swathes of once-released wrestlers returning to the promotion. Should Nox and Green join Emma in returning, they will join Dakota Kai in heading back to the market leaders after being cast aside by the previous regime. Kai's Damage CTRL stablemate IYO SKY is in a similar boat, though her WWE departure was never confirmed prior to her SummerSlam return.
Vince McMahon resigned in disgrace from his position as WWE's Chairman and CEO in July, relinquishing his creative duties in the process. Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon were appointed co-CEOs following his departure. Soon after, Triple H took creative lead.
