ORLANDO, Fla. — While the returning Kaitlyn was greeted with open arms and chants of “Welcome back” by the WWE Universe, Kavita Devi gave the former Divas Champion a decidedly less warm reception, rejecting the customary pre-match handshake. Kaitlyn rewarded Devi’s uncouth behavior with rapid-fire legdrops in the opening moments, showing she hadn’t lost a step since taking a hiatus from sports-entertainment in 2014.

Devi used her strength (and a brutal chokeslam) to retaliate, but Kaitlyn refused to be stopped in her first match back. Kaitlyn blasted the NXT Superstar with a big shoulder block and a wicked forearm (earning “You’ve still got it!” chants) and unsheathed new weapons at her disposal, such as a cannonball splash in the corner. Kaitlyn then returned to an old favorite, the Spear, to nearly cut Devi in half and garner the win.
