Melina Perez, a former 2-time WWE Divas Champion and 3-time WWE Women’s Champion, is reportedly returning to WWE following the expiration of her NWA contract. Multiple sources have confirmed this report to PWInsider, who states that the legend will return to TV within the next week.
Melina, 41, first signed in WWE in 2004. She started on the main roster a year later in a managerial role for MNM alongside current SmackDown wrestler John “Nitro” Morrison and Joey Mercury.
