Mickie James shares details behind her injury

Mickie James recently underwent surgery in order to repair the torn ACL that she sustained during a match against Carmella at a live event in Waco, Texas on June 1.

The former Women’s champion went through the surgery in Birmingham, Alabama which turned out to be a success. Speaking to, the veteran recalled her unfortunate injury. She said:

“From the very moment of impact, I knew something was wrong,” James said. “I hoped against all odds that it wasn’t a serious injury, but it was that bad.

“I don’t fault Carmella. She has always been a professional. I’ve been very lucky to avoid major injuries in the past, but eventually, everyone’s luck runs out in the ring. After 20 years, I guess mine did.”
With the reported recovery time for a torn ACL ranging up to 9 months, James claims that she intends to keep herself busy during this period. She stated:
“You’re going to see me doing things I haven’t been able to do in ages,” James said. “We’re talking fan expos and conventions, more music performances and, of course, appearances with WWE.”
