Update on Mickie James’ Impact Status and Return – Nick Aldis recently revealed that wife Mickie James is now 100% healed from her rib injury, and is just waiting for the right moment to make her return to Impact Wrestling.
“She’s 100 percent, so now it’s just a case of she’s just waiting for her right moment. We do have interests outside of wrestling, we have a supplement company, and Mickie has her show and the music stuff, and we have the horses. We’re also producing a show in Australia and Mickie is also a producer of the Last Match musical. She’s really just sort of weighing up where she wants to spend her time because we also have a son.”
“So it’s also a case of making the best use of our time that means we have to be away from our son. She needs to be on something that she feels is valuable and worthwhile. She’s certainly going to show up again in IMPACT Wrestling at some point but, like I said, it’s finding the right time. She’s been around enough, she’s not in a rush just to get back for attention’s sake. She’s going to bide her time and make it meaningful.”
Fightful Select reports that James was actually medically cleared a few weeks ago. James is technically still free agent, one who has always had plenty of options.
James was expected to remain with Impact until at least this summer, according to company sources, but that was before the injury. Another source said that despite the fact that James technically is and always has been a free agent since coming back to Impact, they’ve always seen her as a woman of her word and there’s never been any real concern of her going back on commitments.
James injured her ribs at the February Impact TV tapings. After a month out of action, she still wasn’t healthy enough to compete, but Impact officials did not want to have to vacate both the World Title and the Knockouts World Title after Josh Alexander’s injury. James was declared unable to compete, and doctors had told her she could miss months, which led to the title being vacated right before Rebellion.
