Candice Michelle has posted a blog on the WWE Fan Nation site talking about her return to the ring. As you would imagine, she’s very excited to return to the ring. She wrote, “After being out of action for 10 months, the feeling of being back is tremendous! Through the blood, sweat, and tears, I am excited to start this new chapter of my career! I have been envisioning coming back for some time now, so for it to be reality is still setting in! It was an amazing challenge to face so many of my fears getting back into the ring! There is nothing like facing your fears head on to make your dreams come true!” She talks about getting back into wrestling shape in preparation for her return and personally thanks Billy Kidman. “I have never been a patient person; patience is a virtue, I am learning! The day that the doctor released me to train, I let WWE know … and that day, not the next week or month, I had travel in place to train at FCW! I had the privilege of training at Steve Keirn’s school with amazing agents and talent! I owe a huge thanks to Billy Kidman, who came early for me, stayed late, and even came in on his day off because I wanted to get as much training in as I could!” Apparently, Candice is aware of the critiques on her from wrestling fans. “Now that I am back, I don’t expect things to get any easier! I see the WWE Universe and WWE have high expectations of me and I love it! The critiques keep me on my toes and make me fight harder! Beth Phoenix has set standards high for me as well as the other competitive Divas! She has something that once was mine, and I will do whatever it takes to earn it back! I have been knocked down several times and even taken out a few times, but each time I come back better and stronger than before! I have been gone for a long time and can’t prove myself overnight, but whether you love me or hate me, I will work to earn your respect!”
Nick’s Note: It’s good to know that Candice recognizes her weaknesses and her clear ring rust since returning from her latest injury. The important thing, however, is for WWE management to be aware of it and make sure that she is working as hard as she can to improve before she’s put back into a title program with a top tier Diva like Beth or Mickie.
