Mickie James is all set for her Royal Rumble appearance
Mickie James, the World Champion of Impact Knockouts, recently talked with Busted Open Radio. The former WWE Superstar was unexpectedly announced for the next Royal Rumble match. She has stated, though, that she intends to walk into the ring with the IMPACT Knockouts World championship.
“I think it’s pretty important, And I feel like the fact that Pat (McAfee) has already mentioned it on television and referred to me as the Knockouts World Champion, that was really powerful. So, I intend to walk out with the championship, I feel like that’s representing the company that I work for now and that I am the champion for.”
Her imminent comeback to WWE was unexpected given her dismissal last year. In addition, the corporation delivered Mickie James’ stuff in a garbage bag, which sparked outrage. Furthermore, another of the motives she wants to return is to ensure that this is not the image she is remembered for.
“I feel like too, it was important for me not to have that incident be the thing,” James confessed. “I did some incredible work there at WWE. And for whatever reason, that’s the thing, that door is never really closed. And I just hated having that bad blood, I didn’t want that asterisk. I’ve had all these cool matches and cool moments, but it was overshadowed by this one thing, that sucked.
“And I am glad that it’s not going to happen anymore, and it sucked. But it wasn’t like I was the only person it happened to and I think at the end of the day my dream was always to have been there and do all these monumental things that I was able to do there. I just didn’t want to be known for the other thing. So, this is something cool and different. So if that is the last thing, it’s a pretty cool last thing, you know?”
Mickie James will compete in the Royal Rumble among numerous other legends, according to WWE. Lita, The Bella Twins, and Michelle McCool were all revealed, and James confessed she’s curious who the night’s surprises would be.
“It’s amazing, I didn’t think it was going to get the reaction that it did. It kind of blew up bigger than I thought. You hope to get a little buzz, but yeah it was amazing. I was hoping for the surprise, I thought the surprise would have been good. But then, there’s still more surprises, so that makes me wonder who’s going to be the surprises then?”
