It looks like this might not be a storyline.
Before Alexa Bliss was announced as Asuka’s tag team partner in the ongoing WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament, a fan asked Mickie if she’s going to be Asuka’s tag team partner.
“No. I feel I’m done in wrestling.”
Mickie will turn 43 on August 31st. Below are her major accomplishments in pro-wrestling:
– 5x WWE Women’s Champion
– 1x WWE Divas Champion
– 4x TNA / IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts World Champion

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 10, 1996) – WCW Hog WILD 1996
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 10, 1996, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Hog Wild 1996’ LIVE on PPV from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.
This was the very first out of a total of 4 annual WCW events (1996-1999) from the Sturgis Harley Davidson Rally, and while all four events are usually destroyed by the critics for not earning a cent in revenue money because it was totally free for the bikers in attendance, they were still pretty cool & entertaining to watch for a fan, as big outdoor events always had kind of a special feeling to them.
Here are the results:
WCW World Cruiserweight Championship: Rey Mysterio Jr. (c) defeated The Ultimate Dragon
Scott Norton defeated Ice Train
Madusa defeated Bull Nakano
Chris Benoit defeated Dean Malenko
WCW World Tag Team Championship: Harlem Heat (c) defeated The Steiner Brothers
WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair (c) defeated Eddie Guerrero
The Outsiders defeated Sting and Lex Luger
WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hollywood Hogan defeated The Giant (c)
