Mickie James has been renowned as one of the most talented in-ring wrestling legends of all time who can hang with the best competitors to this date inside the squared circle. However, James has been evidently missing from the action for a while now.

The former WWE superstar has been absent from the wrestling ring since her unsuccessful challenging Trinity (now known as Naomi in WWE) for the Knockouts World Championship at Bound For Glory 2023.

In November of the same year, James announced that she would be taking a break from in-ring competition, opting to “sit back for a little while” regarding her wrestling career while being engaged in other outside projects.

In an interview with Ella Jay for WrestleZone, Mickie James discussed her upcoming match against former WWE superstar Alicia Fox at HER as part of Starrcast Downunder on April 12. She revealed that she hasn’t competed in several months due to her busy schedule, which includes organizing HER, working behind the scenes with OVW’s women’s division, and preparing for the Last Match musical.


“I also haven’t been in the ring since my match with Trinity. I want to be able to deliver because I’ve been so busy. I’m putting [HER] together, I’ve been working with OVW behind the scenes with their women’s division and stuff. I’m working on how to cultivate that and do some cool things there. Obviously, I have the Last Match musical around the corner. I mom so hard on the daily. So I hope I’m ready for this match.” 

Despite her hiatus from in-ring action, James expressed her passion for wrestling and clarified that she is not retired. She remains open to returning to the ring but is currently focused on balancing her various commitments and projects. We will have to wait and see what the future holds for the former TNA Knockouts World Champion.
