As we reported on Sunday morning, the belief was that Nikki Bella would end up making her return as the replacement for Eva Marie in the six-woman tag-team match at SummerSlam, and that’s exactly what happened.
Bella flew to New York from Chicago after making a Wizard World appearance in “The Windy City” on Saturday to be at the event, where she helped Alexa Bliss and Natalya defeat the team of Naomi, Carmella, Becky Lynch.
Because her boyfriend John Cena ended up on the SmackDown Live brand, the former longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in history, who was not placed on either the red or blue brand in the WWE Draft, was always expected to end up playing for the blue team.
Check out the video above to watch Nikki Bella’s surprise return at tonight’s pay-per-view.
