The speculation is that she will be battling Superstars from each of the three brands in Friday’s Tri-Brand Battle Royal.

However, during her interview backstage on Monday Night Raw, she was interrupted by Lana and Natayla. Of course, an exchange of words went down where Natalya makes it extremely clear that she is the best in-ring performer in the Women’s Division.

On the other hand, Mickie James leaves the conversation saying she will see Natalya next week. So, hopefully this is the match to look forward to.



Can the former WWE Women’s Champion revive her former glory?

Mickie James suffered from a knee injury in June 2019 while wrestling with Carmella during a WWE live event. In July 2019, she had to undergo a knee surgery.

While that was successful, she did not appear in the ring ever since, even though she received the medical clearance to perform again.

Even though she has not dawned her wrestling gear since, James did some announcing on WWE Main Event.

Mickie James is definitely counted amongst the legends of WWE Women’s wrestling. Her debut was back in 2005 when she battled with Hall of Famer Trish Stratus.

This storyline is probably one of the most popular ones of the WWE Women’s division of the yesteryears.

James would become absolutely obsessed with Stratus. As a result, a match was set up between the two of them at WrestleMania 22.

This is where Mickie James secured her first WWE Women’s Championship title.

Following this win, James would move forward in her journey and end up becoming a 5-time WWE Women’s Champion along with securing the WWE Divas Championship title once.
