Candice LeRae Match Set For WWE Raw

After her return last night, Candice's next WWE match has been confirmed.

Candice LeRae returned to WWE on last night's Raw, defeating Nikki A.S.H. in her first match since losing the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship on July 6, 2021. Following the match, Nikki became angry and tore her mask off, hinting at a possible gimmick change (or a reversion to Nikki Cross.)

Candice took time away from wrestling to go on maternity leave; her return to WWE comes shortly after that of her husband, Johnny Gargano.

This was actually LeRae's Raw in-ring debut, but not her first appearance in a match on the main roster. She has already competed in the Royal Rumble match and at Survivor Series 2019, as part of Team NXT. 

Three matches for next week's Raw were set up on last night's show, with LeRae challenging Dakota Kai of Damage CTRL backstage. This came after Candice wished Bianca Belair good luck in defending her Raw Women's Championship at Extreme Rules - which angered Damage CTRL. 

The other matches set up for next week's show are Braun Strowman vs. Chad Gable, and Otis vs. Johnny Gargano.
