Isn't the collaboration between WWE and IMPACT Wrestling over yet?

Mickie James recently made history by entering the women's Royal Rumble of 2022 as the Knockout champion, or the women's champion of IMPACT Wrestling, a company that for the occasion collaborated with WWE by joining forces, despite there being some prohibition in the presentation of the wrestler.

And it is Mickie James who, speaking to the microphones of the journalist Denise Salcedo, said that the two companies will probably find each other again in the future, even if obviously no one knows how.

What will happen between WWE and IMPACT Wrestling?

Are WWE and IMPACT Wrestling working together in 2022? The world of professional wrestling has been buzzing since SmackDown on Friday night when it was announced that current IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Mickie James would be participating in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble.

"I think so. I don't know if it will be right away, I think this was an opportunity for WWE to test the waters, to see if it was something. People talk and say 'this is going to be great and this is going to get a lot of ratings.

and that will make a lot of noise', but until it's actually in front of them I think they can't actually see it... I feel like now that they see the potential and how much the fans have responded, the idea that it happens with men, or with world titles, or something like that, now, at least the idea of ​​that possibility and that door is open." Mickie James also revealed why the decision to fight in the Royal Rumble was an instant 'yes', also hinting at the famous garbage bag incident after his firing from WWE: “For me, I felt it was a very childish way.

selfish to look at it, to go like 'No, I don't want to do this because my feelings are hurt', I could have done it and that was an ego decision, I should have lived with that decision. I should have taken responsibility for the fact that I just wasted my chance to be the first person to do something in a long time and to open this passage and all these possibilities ...

This business is bigger than my ego, and my love for this business is bigger than my ego [...]" Sapp has fueled those flames, stating he's heard that there have been pitches for "interesting and big outside names." But at this time, it's unknown who these big outside names are or if they'll end up being used or not.

While it's been a very long time, this wouldn't be the first time that WWE has worked with another wrestling company. They brought ECW stars to RAW several times in the late 1990s when Vince McMahon went to war with WCW on Monday nights.
