The former WWE star Mickie James recently made a huge revelation involving AEW star CM Punk. She revealed that she almost debuted alongside Punk for the company before the idea was nixed.
Mickie James opens up on the matter
James’ first run in WWE began in 2005, working with top star Trish Stratus. However, the company’s original plan was for her to work alongside Punk until it was dropped.
Speaking on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, the former Women’s Champion said she was initially upset that her planned debut with Punk was nixed:
“I was supposed to debut before and it was with CM Punk as his manager on Sunday Night Heat. I prayed so hard and I was so devastated in that moment when Hunter came back and he’s, like, ‘I like both of you guys, I just don’t see you together, it’s just weird.'” Mickie added: “But I was so devastated in that moment, but then I go, like ‘God, how different my career would have been if that was my introduction to the WWE Universe.'”
James went on to have a great career in the Stamford-based company. She became one of the most successful female stars in WWE history. She has also captured the Women’s title on five occasions.
Meanwhile, CM Punk recently captured the AEW World Title at Double or Nothing. However, he had revealed that he suffered an injury and had to take some time off to recover. Meanwhile, Jon Moxley was crowned the Interim AEW World Champion at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view. They will have a battle for the Undisputed AEW World title after Punk makes his return.
