Mickie James give the wrestling world shocker as she was announced to be a part of 2022 WWE for Women’s Royal Rumble. James used to be part of WWE, but she currently assigned with IMPACT Wrestling.

The current reigning Knockouts champion will be again part of WWE for a short while, and it seemed that she will also be wearing her IMPACT championship. With the spirit of competition rising, it seems that James is unwinding with a fun little dance routine.

James took to Instagram and showed off her warm up routine for the Royal Rumble. She also added in the captions that she will see her fans soon, in her appearance at the Royal Rumble for the divas.

While AEW has done a lot of cross intersectionality between pro wrestlers representing their promotion and titles, WWE has not done so in a long time. Back in the 90s, it was common for stars from ECW, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, USMA, NWA, etc defending and showing off their titles within the universe of WWE.


This might be WWE’s beginning to open their own version of the Forbidden Door. Seth Rollins recently referred to Jon Moxley with his AEW name, instead of using his former WWE name. While some may chalk it off to accident, others might see it as a sign.
