Throughout much of Mickie James’ WWE career, there are some who considered her a peppy, energetic sweetheart. But she’s proven to be as dangerous in the ring as any that came before her.
A lifelong Virginian, Mickie spent years honing her craft with the goal of becoming one of the greatest female Superstars in history. To this end, the athletic master of a ring-pounding Implant DDT has gone to war with the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita, Maryse, Gail Kim and Alicia Fox. She fought in legendary battles against Beth Phoenix and against simply “flawless” adversaries Team LayCool, Michelle McCool and Layla. And she did it all while amassing WWE gold and all the glory that came with it.
Mickie has captured six Women’s Championships, and at one point, became the second Superstar to hold both the Women’s and the Divas Titles simultaneously. She did this all while establishing herself as one of the alpha females of WWE and a true force to be wrecked with across the board.
Though Mickie departed WWE in April 2010, she reemerged in fall 2016 and challenged NXT Champion Asuka at NXT TakeOver: Toronto. She stunned the WWE Universe on Jan. 17, 2017, when it was discovered that she was in fact the mysterious La Luchadora who had been helping SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss make Becky Lynch’s life miserable for weeks. Now that the Superstar Shake-up has brought her to Raw, Mickie James looks to write a whole new chapter in her incredible career.
Don’t be fooled from what you hear. Behind that peppy façade is one of the most dangerous and gifted Superstars around.
