Vickie Guerrero’s Daughter Returns To WWE NXT At House Show, Former Cheerleader Makes Debut

Raquel Diaz, the daughter of Vickie Guerrero and the late Eddie Guerrero, resurfaced at Thursday’s WWE NXT live event in Tampa, Florida, according to Diva-Dirt.com. It is her first appearance for the developmental league since last year.

In September 2012, it was reported that Diaz, whose real name is Shaul Guerrero, had requested and was granted a release from her developmental contract—she later confirmed her departure on Twitter. Last month, Vickie Guerrero revealed on the social network that her daughter was moving back to Orlando, Florida to report to the WWE Performance Center. Diaz subsequently reactivated her character’s account on Twitter and stated that she was “back.”

Leah Van Damme and Devin Taylor also appeared on the show. Van Damme, a former Los Angeles Lakers and New England Patriots cheerleader who reported to the WWE Performance Center last month, participated in a T-Shirt giveaway with other NXT Divas. Taylor, a former model and freelance television reporter, had been sidelined since suffering a dislocated knee in July; she shared ring announcing duties with Becky Lynch.

In a trivia note, Van Damme is the daughter of former professional wrestler Paul Vandale, who sporadically appeared as a preliminary wrestler for the World Wrestling Federation from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s (coinciding with enhancement talent being phased out due to the promotion’s battle with World Championship Wrestling). According to ProFightDB.com, he did job duty in matches against Owen Hart, Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Mr. Perfect, Razor Ramon, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka and Big Bossman, among others. Van Damme noted on her Twitter account recently that her dad faced Razor Ramon in his first television match for the WWF. The official YouTube account of WWE posted footage of that encounter on Friday, which can be viewed here.
