Behind the scenes spirit at IMPACT after Mickie James Royal Rumble’s announcement

It’s been a very good week for Mickey James and IMPACT Wrestling.

On the eve of IMPACT Wrestling’s pay-per-view Hard to Kill, WWE announced on SmackDown that IMPACT Knockouts Champion Mickie James will compete in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match.

But how do the people behind the scenes at IMPACT Wrestling feel about the announcement?

Based on Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, the people in IMPACT are “very happy” with the buzz that WWE helped them make the announcement on Friday, especially since James was scheduled to wrestle in their main event the following night with Deonna Purrazzo.

Mickie James made the most of her WWE release last year

WWE has released a lot of talent in 2021, but it’s hard to say that anyone has done more than Hardcore Country.

James appeared for the National Wrestling Alliance following her WWE retirement to announce that she would be producing an all-women pay-per-view NWA, EmPowerrr. The event brought together talents from NWA, IMPACT Wrestling, All Elite Wrestling, etc., all under one roof. It was arguably the best event the NWA had had since they returned from the pandemic.

This also brings James back to IMPACT Wrestling, where she popularizes her “Hardcore Country” personality and finds herself in stiff competition with Deonna Purrazzo that culminated in the Hard to Kill pay-per-view main event on Saturday.

With James heading to WWE Royal Rumble with the IMPACT Knockouts world championship around her waist, the sky seems to be the limit for her for the rest of 2022.
