Speaking on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, WWE star Mickie James explained how she’s been recovering from her torn ACL and what she still feels she needs to do in WWE. As far as when she’ll return, she states that timing just wasn’t on her side.
I’m due to return. I felt I was so, so close to getting ready to be cleared and then obviously my timing, per usual is impeccable. But, I was like, ‘You know what? Maybe it’s a blessing.’ I feel like everything is always, you never know. There’s a reason for everything. So, I’ve just been kind of still steadily rehabbing because even now and I’m just nine months or whatever it is post-surgery… if I have more time in my own right to continue to heal and recover and build to come back, I’d rather come back at 110 percent than 90.
When she does eventually return to WWE, she still feels like she has one more run left in her. ” wanna win the championship at least one last time. One more championship. There is three [brands]. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t say that. I feel like I have a little bit of an affinity to RAW because I started my career on RAW and I feel like I’ve done some amazing work on RAW.”
