She has now confirmed that the announcement in question is that she will be returning to the WWE fold when her podcast ‘Chasing Glory’ debuts on the WWE Network on October 26th.

A number of podcasts have previously made their way to the WWE Network in a visual fashion. The ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin Show first made the leap with some groundbreaking interviews with various WWE figures, most prominently Vince McMahon.
Bruce Prichard and Conrad Thompson also brought a version of their podcast, ‘Something To Wrestle With’ to the network with a limited series. Garcia will become the first female host of this format to make the jump.
