WWE Legend Mickie James has revealed the deaths of her brother and niece in a tragic accident.
The professional wrestler asked for prayers for her brother Wayne’s wife, Christy Knuckles, who survived the incident.
James, 43, tweeted: “Thank you everyone for the love and messages. It warmed my heart.
“Please continue to pray for Wayne’s wife Christy Knuckles. She is still in the hospital in serious condition.
“She lost both her husband (my brother) and their 16-year-old daughter in the accident.
“I can’t imagine.” Also for the parents of their daughter’s best friend, who was only 15 years old.
“They had just picked them up and we are taking the girls to school. My heart is broken for her because I don’t know what I would do.
“Think. Or even feel. I am sending so much strength, healing and love.”
James made his WWE debut in 2005 and went on to hold the Women’s and Diva’s Championship.
Most recently, she starred in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match while reigning as Impact Knockouts Champion.
The American still competes for Impact Wrestling and recently won the Bound for Glory pay-per-view.
James received well wishes from her fans online after confirming the sad news of the deaths of her brother and nieces.
But she also asked the driver of the alleged incident to forgive himself.
James wrote: “Finally, please pick up the driver of the other vehicle that hit you.
“Luckily he’s fine. But I’m sure he’s mentally and emotionally devastated. I hope he knows and forgives himself. It wasn’t your fault.
“There was nothing you could do. It was an accident. A tragic accident.”
James was also supported by her fellow wrestlers, who reacted to the heartbreaking news.
Ex-WWE tag team Bollywood Boyz said: “So sorry to read this. Our sincere condolences, Mickie.
Wrestling legend Lance Storm replied: “I’m so sorry for your loss Mickie. Much love.”
