Former WWE Women’s Champion and current IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Mickie James was recently announced as a participant in the 2022 WWE Royal Rumble. Mickie just took part in an interview with esteemed journalist Ariel Helwani, where she revealed “Hardcore Country” will be her theme at the upcoming Rumble.
She also hopes to be able to walk out with the IMPACT KO’s title, which would be incredible for IMPACT Wrestling, Mickie, fans, etc. Thanks to WrestlingCovers for pointing this out, awesome account that all pro wrestling fans should be following.
Even if Mickie doesn’t carry the title, this is still a huge deal for IMPACT to be represented at one of WWE’s biggest events of the year. I mean who doesn’t like the Royal Rumble? Come on, even if you hate WWE, Rumbles are fun as hell.
The 2022 WWE Royal Rumble takes place January 29th. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster. The show will stream exclusively on Peacock TV in the U.S and the WWE Network elsewhere.
Check out the full interview with Ariel and Mickie James above.
