Ring veteran Mickie James was planning for her comeback to the ring prior to the COVID pandemic outbreak. James has been out of action for over a year when she tore her ACL at a house show and required surgery.
The last in-ring match she participated in that was televised was the Battle Royal at WrestleMania 35. She has mentioned in an interview with Chris Van Vliet that she has been medically cleared for a bit of time now.
“The doc had already cleared me, so I was literally just getting that last two weeks to get cleared to come back to in-ring action and everything got shut down. So, I went home and I just haven’t been back since.”
“There’s no need to take that risk of going there if I’m not doing anything,” she explained. “I would rather bide my time and wait for the perfect opportunity.”
James has made prior comments that she wants another title run in her career. When asked what she sees for her future once she is able to return safely to the ring she replied:
“I’m going to go in and take all the championships,” she said. “I’m going to be my own tag team partner and I’m going to go in there and take those championships first, and then I’m going to take both of the women’s championships at the same time.”
