James is currently signed to NWA and Impact Wrestling and is also the current Impact Knockouts Champion. WWE acknowledged her as the Impact Knockouts Champion while confirming her participation. Early in 2022, no one could have imagined this.

Mickie James is not the only WWE legend that will take part in the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Lita, Kelly Kelly, Michelle McCool, Nikki Bella, and Brie Bella will also take part in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.

During an episode of the Busted Open podcast, WWE legend Bully Ray talked about whether Lita or Mickie James should win the Women’s Royal Rumble match or not. He said, “Should Mickie or Lita win the Women’s Royal Rumble? No. It has to be one of the homegrown talents.”

Later, Bully Ray praised the WWE legends and mentioned them to be leaders in the ring. He added he wants the veteran women to guide the younger women deep into the Royal Rumble match.

Bully Ray said, “They are leaders in that ring. I am leaving a Lita and a Mickie James in there with a Bianca Belair and a Liv Morgan deep into the Rumble so that the fans are completely invested. Leave the veterans in with the young talent.”

However, Mickie James is yet to win a Women’s Royal Rumble match. In 2018, Trish Stratus eliminated her and in 2019 she got eliminated by Tamina. Last year at the Royal Rumble PPV, Lacey Evans eliminated Mickie James.

This will be the fourth time that James will enter the Women’s Royal Rumble match in WWE. But can she win it this time? What do you think?
