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 MickieJames.com, 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.”
“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.”
