Kaitlyn spoke it into existence.
Over the past year there have been a rollercoaster of reports having to do with WWE being interested in bringing back former WWE Divas Champion Celeste Bonin or better by her time with the company as "Kaitlyn". The Wrestling Observer reported last month that Kaitlyn was present at Full Sail for the recent NXT TV tapings.
In February of this this year Kaitlyn made her return to the squared circle at the 'Coastal Championship Wrestling' show in Florida and at that very event she was interviewed by Chris Van Vliet and jokingly stated that she was trying to get used to calling herself a "sports entertainer" opposed to a wrestler. Kaitlyn is indeed a sports-entertainer once again as it was announced by WWE on their social media outlets that after four years away from the company, Kaitlyn will be returning to partake in the Mae Young Classic II next month.

WWE has announced that the Mae Young Classic II will be taped at Full Sail on August 8th and August 9th and further details on the tournament would emerge as those dates grow closer. A piece of information that is certain is that Kaitlyn will be a part of the tournament. During July of 2014, after four years in WWE Kaitlyn decided that she was going to step away from the wrestling business as a whole to focus on other endeavors. The former NXT season 3 winner will have another endeavor on her checklist which is to become the winner of the second annual Mae Young Classic.
Kaitlyn spoke with ESPN to announce the news of her return to WWE and she had the following to say about training and improving as an in-ring performer:
"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 said. "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."
