Last night (March 16th), at WWE’s ‘Road to WrestleMania’ live event from Madison Square Garden in New York City, WWE Superstar Nikki Bella made her in-ring return.

Bella teamed up with her fiancé John Cena to face off and defeat the team of Elias and Sonya Deville. This marks Bella’s return match since competing in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match earlier this year. Cena did the AA simultaneously on Elias, but the women were the legal ones in the ring. Cena and Elias worked most of the match, the women worked the last two minutes. Elias sang before the match.

Bayley was originally set as Elias’ tag team partner but was moved to compete in a Triple Threat Raw Women’s Title Match that also featured Sasha Banks and the Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss with Mickie James at ringside.

In the end, Bliss tossed Bayley out of the ring and then pinned Banks. After the match, Nia Jax came out. Blisss tried to explain that it wasn’t really her talking on Raw, it must have been photo-shopped. They hugged, and Jax turned it into a bear hug and threw her down. James attacked, but Jax took her out as well.

Also on the card was a match-up between Asuka taking on Absolution’s Mandy Rose, which Asuka won via the Asuka Lock.
