More WWE SmackDown LIVE Backstage News & Notes For Tonight (9/17/2019)

Former WWE Star Returning After Five Years; Expected on Tonight’s WWE Smackdown

— It looks like another former WWE star is headed back to the company as is reporting that Tenille Dashwood – the former Emma – is backstage at tonight’s taping in St. Louis, MO. Dashwood is not just visiting but expected on the show as the person who will respond to Ronda Rousey’s open challenge.

— Dashwood joined WWE back in 2011 as Emma and enjoyed a highly successful run in NXT as the women’s division took off. She made it to the main roster as Emma and then WWE tried to repackage her as Emmalina but that went nowhere and she eventually was released in 2017. Since her time in WWE, Dashwood has worked for ROH and most recently IMPACT Wrestling until August of this year at which time she became a free agent.
