Cora Jade returned to the NXT fold on Saturday night at the Deadline PLE.

She emerged from the back after the women’s Iron Survivor Challenge.

Blair Davenport had just won the match and declared that she would see Women’s Champion Lyra Valkyria at the New Year’s Evil TV special.

Valkyria came out to accept the challenge, but was knocked to the ground by the returning Jade, who held up the championship belt.

Later in the PLE, she declared backstage that she had made her championship intentions clear. She added that she would say more on Tuesday’s episode of NXT.

Jade has been gone since August, when she “left” NXT after a defeat to Dana Brooke.

Join Braden Herrington and Davie Portman for their live review of NXT Deadline (and a special announcement) on YouTube after the PLE concludes.
