Kaitlyn Returning To WWE

The first entrant for the Mae Young Classic tournament has been confirmed.

Former WWE Superstar Kaitlyn (Celeste Bonin) is returning to compete in this year's all-woman tournament in WWE. ESPN was first to report the news.

After retiring in 2014 to focus on her fitness apparel business and family, Kaitlyn returned to the ring back in February for Coastal Championship Wrestling.

"Since I came back, I had the opportunity to work backward and really nail down the fundamentals and the basics -- things that I really lacked during my first run with the WWE," Bonin told ESPN. "Now I am bringing these newly honed and developed skills that I have acquired recently and I am combining that with my fearless attitude. And because I don't have this rookie vibe about me, now I can really concentrate on surprising the WWE universe with all the things I have learned."
