• WWE PLE Footage Aired On This Week’s IMPACT Wrestling
IMPACT Wrestling’s Knockouts World Champion Mickie James appeared at WWE’s Royal Rumble 2022 PLE (Premium Live Event).
She competed in the Women’s Royal Rumble match and lasted almost 12 minutes in the match.
Mickie eliminated her former rival Michelle McCool, before being eliminated by WWE Hall Of Famer Lita.
Footage of Mickie from this match was shown on Thursday’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling, and it was written that this footage was being shown with WWE’s permission.
WWE and IMPACT Wrestling are obviously on good terms, and we could some more things like this in the future.
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.”
