#5. Mickie James Returns to WWE Royal Rumble 2022

Mickie James was the most unexpected name of the 18 announced entrants for the Women’s Royal Rumble match.

The legendary female star came out of WWE in April 2021 and has enjoyed great success with other companies since then.

Mickie James is the reigning Knockouts champion, but as Sean Ross Sapp reveals, she doesn’t have a full-time deal with IMPACT Wrestling.

Scott D’Amore, the company’s executive vice president, said WWE and IMPACT Wrestling had signed an agreement to allow Mickie James’ Royal Rumble to perform.

“WWE wanted it, Mickie wanted it, and the philosophy of IMPACT Wrestling is always to partner with other major promotions to create buzz for the fans. Everything has been signed and agreed with WWE and IMPACT Wrestling – the only question is whether Mickie will or will not compete in WWE’s most historic annual matches as the reigning Knockouts World Champion,” D’Amore revealed.

Mickie James’ most recent WWE stint didn’t end on the best of terms, making her impending return even more surprising.

James is slated to defend her title against Deonna Purrazzo at the Hard to Kill event on January 8, and there’s a possibility she’ll walk into Royal Rumble without the championship.
