The inclusion of Mickie James in the Royal Rumble 2022 represents a truly historic step for the world of wrestling and specifically the WWE, which opens the forbidden door welcoming not only an IMPACT athlete but even the champion of the promotion.
Interviewed on Notsam Wrestling, Mickie James obviously talked about her appearance at tomorrow's premium live event, revealing who she would like to eliminate from the dispute and why, with explanations between logic and sentiment.
“I want to take out Charlotte, for obvious reasons. I want to take out Becky. Well, she won't be out there because she's already a champion. had a little moment in the rumble before organically and, you know, the whole time we've been there, we've never been in a match together.
It's crazy to think that and I feel like she's cool, I think so too because she was working with a lot of legends and stuff in that kind of space. So I thought: 'Oh, this will happen organically in the end.'
And it never happened, but it's okay. I think Bianca will also kick her out because I know some people, she's probably the first pick in the draft for victory, so I have to get rid of her. I love her, but she is the competition."
Mickie James is ready
Recently on Busted Open Radio, Mickie James revealed that she intends to step into the ring with the Knockouts title of IMPACT Wrestling: “I think that's an important thing. I feel a lot that Pat McAfee mentioned me on TV and called me IMPACT Knockouts Champion, all of that was amazing.
For the ppv I, therefore, intend to enter with the title, I feel as if I represent the company I work for and for which I am now a champion." Mickie James stated that WWE's head of talent relations John Laurinaitis reached out to IMPACT's Scott D'Amore to discuss her Rumble appearance.
"Johnny reached out to Scott (...) just talk to him, (...) professionally, because it is companies,'' said James "This has never really been done before) (...) IMPACT worked together with WWE in the past (...) for when [Ric] Flair went in the Hall of Fame and Christian Cage (...) so it wasn't unforeseen that it could possibly happen.
(...) Scott first reached out to me to see what my interest was (...) we were all able to make this happen somehow." The wrestling legend added that her appearance was originally supposed to be a surprise.
