• “She has a wealth of $ex appeal, which never hurts” – AEW Personality On Mickie James In The Royal Rumble
During the latest episode of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer & current AEW Commentator Jim Ross talked about Impact Wrestling’s Knockouts World Champion Mickie James competing in the Women’s Royal Rumble 2022 match.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:
“Now you’ve got Mickie James in the Royal Rumble, my my how things have changed.
I selectively tuned into the Royal Rumble because I’m a wrestling fan and I was here home alone so I thought let’s check this out.
I was so proud for Mickie. She’s one of my favorite ladies that I have worked with in my career, she’s very passionate and I still think she has a wealth of $ex appeal, which never hurts.”
After the Royal Rumble went off the air, Mickie was interviewed backstage and below is what she said about competing in the Royal Rumble match while being a part of Impact Wrestling:
“Unbelievable. If you would have said to me that this moment would be happening right now, I would’ve said you’re insane. And here we are, we went out there and made history.
Obviously I wanted to win. I had my sights set high because the winner goes on to WrestleMania and I wanted that moment.
But just to go out there as WWE family, as Mickie James – the legend, also as Hardcore Country Mickie, something that the WWE Universe never saw and to represent IMPACT as the Knockouts World Champion, I thought I did a great job.
I had a heck of a showing. I’m sorry guys, I didn’t win, but in my heart the world won because we just broke down one of the biggest ceilings you’ve ever seen. And we did it for the ladies.”
