Mickie James competed in TNA for the past couple of years before she parted ways with the promotion last year. It was recently revealed that she is a Creative Director in OVW and how James has elaborated on her role.

The pro wrestling legend also appeared during Ohio Valley Wrestling’s Nightmare Rumble pay-per-view last weekend, leading to lot of speculation. It was then announced that James joined the promotion as Creative Director, Head of Female Talent and Executive Producer for all OVW shows.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Mickie James expressed excitement about her new roles at OVW and the positive feedback she has received. She discussed her desire to contribute behind the scenes and specifically mentioned her interest in building and promoting women’s wrestling.

Noting the opportunities at OVW and the presence of legends like Mick Foley, she shared her enthusiasm for being part of the organization’s growth and success.


”I have to say, the love from it and response from it has been all amazing (to my new roles at OVW) so I hope to be able to deliver to somewhat justify the love I guess. I’m really excited though. I’ve been wanting a way to kind of step behind the scenes and learn more in that capacity and really try to build and do something with, you know, women’s wrestling specifically and I think that they have a whole division there, there’s a lot of opportunities.”

“You saw Mick Foley there. He was there at the pay-per-view and the last television tapings and he’s coming in and I think that… I even said it. I was there last Thursday for TV and I was looking at the talent in the stands and I go, ‘I was sitting in those very stands. I was in your very shoes’ and I think there’s a lot of history with myself but with a lot of people in those four walls and I think all of us want OVW to win and I think that they have a lot of opportunities there and I’m just excited. I’m excited dude.”

Mickie James joining OVW is a significant acquisition, and her experience and insights could prove invaluable for the company. OVW, which has been under the radar for a while, is making notable moves under the leadership of Al Snow and his team. We’ll have to see how 2024 will turn out for Ohio Valley Wrestling.
