Mickie James Wants To Face Mercedes Mone, Also Wrestle In Other Promotions

Mickie James was close to ending her in-ring career at IMPACT’s Hard to Kill last Friday. At the end of her Last Rodeo run, it came down to Jame going for the Knockouts World Title in a Title vs. Career match. She was able to pull on the victory against Jordynne Grace and become a five-time Knockouts champ.

While discussing her victory on Busted Open Radio, she explains what is next now she is champion. She stated that she would love to have a match with Mercedes Mone who is one she never was able to get a one-on-one with in WWE.

“I would love that,” she said on Busted Open Radio. “I would be honored to do that. I did say, if I won this championship, that I intend on making this my greatest reign ever and to become the greatest Knockouts World Champion of all time. In order to be a world champion, it needs to be represented worldwide. IMPACT has been so gracious to me and it’s no secret that they are down to do great business. They always try to do what is best for the company and really have an open mind when it comes to a lot of things and are progressive about a lot of things. You talk about that match with Sasha [Mercedes Mone], that’s one match we never got at WWE. We never had a singles match and it’s one thing we always wanted. With her at Stardom and New Japan, that opportunity to have that singles match would be incredible. To go against someone at AEW, that’s a door I’ve never walked through before. Britt Baker or Jamie Hayter, she’s the champion, I love her. She’s fantastic. Someone like Jade Cargill, who is an anomaly, she’s an attraction, that would be two parallel universes, two different worlds colliding. That would be cool.

Jame continues, I was blessed to go back to WWE for the Rumble last time, but there are a lot of women, Charlotte (Flair), Bayley, Becky (Lynch), people who I never really had a chance to be me in that ring and show what I could truly do. That match with Asuka is probably my greatest match when I was back at WWE the last time, and I had some incredible moments and got to do WrestleMania with Alexa (Bliss), but I didn’t have the opportunity to present Hardcore Country until the Rumble, but also remind people of who Mickie James is in the ring. That’s one thing about this time with IMPACT, I reminded a lot of people and earned that respect back on a serious note. I would pray for something like that. I would really like to make this title reign something remarkable and special. I don’t know how many I have left in me.”

James adds to the conversation that she now wants to test herself against the new class of women. She wants to use this title run to wrap up her career and be special for not only herself but for the fans.

She continued, “It’s not about wins or losses, obviously I want to be a champions champion, I don’t want to lose, but to be able to have the opportunity to test myself against a whole new class of women when there are opportunities now that were never available before. It’s exciting. It would be a really good, not only wrap-up to my career, but for this title run to be special for me and to the fans. It would be an opportunity to give the fans something different and unexpected all the way around.” (Fightful)
