The 42-year-old, who made a big splash last year after she was launched by WWE, is the current IMPACT Knockout champion.

And in one of the first times, WWE has admitted to promoting their opponent while promoting the icon of her upcoming appearance.

James was let go by McMahon in April 2021 but she called out WWE on Twitter for the disrespect they showed send her stuff out to her in a crate bag.

That resulted in WWE having to issue an apology and fire the employee responsible.

James, who made his WWE debut in 2005, returned to the company twice before exiting last year.

Since then, she has become one of the main players in IMPACT as she went on to beat Deonna Purrazzo to win the Knockout title.
