There is no doubt that Mickie James has established herself as one of the best female pro wrestlers in the history of the business. Jame was released by WWE back in April last year and then she promptly made her way to NWA and then Impact Wrestling. It seems Jim Cornette is not pleased with fans hyping up only Mickie James.

Mickie James would go on to become the Knockouts Champion as well. Mickie James is set to compete at the Women’s Royal Rumble match, which truly shocked fans as they never expected WWE to ever acknowledge her title reign either.

Besides Mickie James, it was announced on last week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown that the likes of Summer Rae, Lita and others will be making their appearance during the Women’s Royal Rumble match. However, WWE has largely hyped up James’ appearance.

While speaking on his podcast, Drive Thru‘, Jim Cornette talked about fans hyping James’ appearance in the match but then hardly mentioning Lita appearing in the match.

”Everybody made a big deal out of Mickie James being involved in it… Nobody said anything about Lita coming back, one of the hottest female attractions in the last 20 years. But everybody was all over the Mickie James news because of a trash bag gate.

I know they say that she’s the ‘Impact Champion’. Well, my god, that and committing a minor felony will get you arrested in any city in the country.”

WWE and Impact Wrestling managed to work out a deal for Mickie James’ appearance at the Women’s Royal Rumble match. It remains to be seen how James will fare in the match.
