If you exclude her entry into last year’s Women’s Royal Rumble match, this would be Phoenix’s first match since 2012. Her last singles match was a victory over AJ Lee on an October 2012 episode of Monday Night Raw.
It is going to be a newsworthy Raw since it will be the biggest go-home show of the year. Raw will be in Washington, DC, the hometown of Batista.
As noted earlier, Batista will be on the show to address Triple H’s comments from last week.
