The current IMPACT Knockouts Champion Mickie James, had a say in what she didn't like at the rumble.
The ladies addressed Mickie James’ historic performance in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match on January 29 on this week’s edition of GAW TV with Mickie James, So Cal Val, and Victoria.
As entrant #20, the reigning IMPACT Knockouts Champion was eventually evicted by WWE Hall of Famer Lita. Mickie’s participation was noteworthy since she is presently signed to IMPACT Wrestling, but she was summoned by WWE. When she made her entrance, she also pulled out the Knockouts Championship, which was the first time that belt had been displayed on WWE TV.
Melina was another prominent star who made a comeback in the Women’s Royal Rumble bout. Mickie remarked on her looks and expressed her want to share the ring with her. Melina, on the other hand, was eliminated by Sasha Banks after only 53 seconds of the competition after entering as contestant #2.
Mickie said, “I didn’t love that at all [Melina being eliminated after 53 seconds]. I did love that, you know, her entrance, people did exactly what we knew they were going to do. They erupted, like ‘holys**t’, it was so good to see her back. She hadn’t been in WWE for over a decade, so I think that was amazing to see her get teared up, and, it was awesome. I didn’t love the whole she got eliminated first, no I didn’t love that because obviously as I wanted to be able to be in there with her and tangle it up, and I want her to have those moments with some of the other girls, you know. I know it was special for Sasha, and I know Sasha, I know it was special for Sasha to be in there with her.”
Mickie James, the five-time WWE Women’s Champion, also praised Charlotte Flair, the current SmackDown Women’s Champion.
“I watch Ashley [Charlotte Flair] out there, and I’m gonna be honest, she is one of the best wrestlers I’ve ever seen in my life male or female. Like, watching her in the ring, and when I went back and watched the Rumble, like, say what you will, but she operates on a different level. Like, everything matters, like, every moment, her facials are always on point, she takes her time, she doesn’t rush, she breathes. All the right things to what makes wrestling magic, you know what I mean?”
