Mickie James has been running on perhaps the last leg of her esteemed wrestling career. The Hardcore country girl is currently battling all the top stars of the IMPACT Knockouts division. However, outside the ring, James suffered a big personal loss due to which she had to cancel a scheduled appearance.
Mickie James began her major wrestling career in WWE in 2005 as an obsessive Trish Stratus fan. She rose to become one of the pioneers in women’s wrestling. Mickie is currently wrestling every top female superstar in IMPACT Wrestling, vowing to retire if she lost another match. Her supposed final run has been called ‘The Last Rodeo.’
The 10-time Women’s champion suffered a major setback in her personal life lately. Mickie James tragically lost her brother and 16-year-old niece in a car crash about a week ago. The trailblazing superstar posted on Instagram announcing that she needed to reschedule her appearance in Germany with Trish Stratus this weekend due to her brother’s memorial service being on Monday.
“Germany Fans. I am so sorry that I must reschedule the Appearance I had this weekend with @trishstratuscom . I was really looking forward to it. However my brothers service is on Monday and there was no way I could make both. I hope you understand. I will see you very soon. Xoxo.”
Mickie James is scheduled to battle Jordynne Grace at Hard to Kill in January 2023 for the IMPACT Knockouts championship. This match is yet a part of Mickie James’s ‘Last Rodeo’ with the former Women’s champion putting her career on the line.
