Mickie James is a professional wrestler, country music singer, and social media influencer.
After making her mark on wrestling’s independent circuit she debuted on the national stage by working for Total Nonstop Action (TNA) in 2002. In 2003 she signed a developmental deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) where she trained in Louisville, Kentucky.
In October 2005, she made her on screen debut for WWE and would go on to win her first Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 22 in Chicago after a very memorable feud with Trish Stratus. It is regarded by many WWE fans as one of the best women’s feuds in company history. Mickie’s WWE career saw her capture the Women’s Title five times and the Divas Title once. Her combined six championships in WWE are second only to Stratus.
In October of 2010, Mickie returned to TNA Wrestling. Her goal was to become the first woman to win WWE’s Women’s & Divas Titles as well as TNA’s Knockouts Title. In April of 2011, she accomplished that goal by defeating Madison Rayne in a steel cage match to become TNA’s Knockouts Champion. She went on to win TNA’s Knockouts Title three times.
While Mickie’s wrestling career continues, music has always been a passion for her as well.
In the spring of 2010, Mickie released her first album entitled Strangers and Angels. The eleven song album features three songs that Mickie co-wrote: “Hollywood Movie Moment,” “No Good at Pretending” and “Don’t Apologize.” The first single released off the album is a fast paced, exciting track called “Are You With Me?”
Mickie’s albums have received positive reviews from publications such as Country Weekly, CMA Magazine and led to TV appearances on Fox & Friends and Red Eye. Mickie has also shared the stage with other country music recording artists such as Rascal Flatts, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson and Randy Houser among others. She’s performed in concerts all over the world and also performed at the CMA Fest as well.
James also returned to WWE as a full-time talent in January 2017 after having an excellent NXT match with Asuka in November 2016. James has competed as part of WWE’s Raw and Smackdown programs while also taking part in history making matches such as the first ever women’s Royal Rumble and women’s Elimination Chamber matches.
