Mickie James announcement
Mickie James makes her way out for her career announcement. First, she thanks management for the opportunity to speak. She says November will mark 24 years since she began this journey. She talks about sitting at her sister’s death bed to being released from WWE six months later. She says the fans reminded her who she was. She talks about returning to IMPACT and having one of the best runs of her career, which included winning the Knockouts title again. She then lost the title to Tasha and was betrayed by Chelsea. She was filled with doubts again and had to go home to regather. “I’m not retiring. Not tonight. Not like this. Not right now.” Mickie states she’s going to prove herself against the best, and she’s going to earn her way to another Knockouts title match. She’s going to start at the bottom of the roster with open challenges until she gets to the champion. There is a catch: If she loses during this journey or her title match, that is it. This is the last rodeo.
