WWE legend Mickie James has spoken out about why she hasn’t been on TV despite being medically cleared to return.
James has been off TV since June 2019 after suffering a torn ACL which required knee surgery. In a recent interview with Chris Van Villet, James revealed she has been cleared to return for a while but plans of a return were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The doc had already cleared me, so I was literally just getting that last two weeks to get cleared to come back to in-ring action and everything got shut down. So, I went home and I just haven’t been back since.” James said.
The 40-year-old says she doesn’t want to risk heading to the WWE Performance Center and not being used. Instead she wants to wait for the perfect opportunity.
“There’s no need to take that risk of going there if I’m not doing anything. I would rather bide my time and wait for the perfect opportunity.” she explained.
Upon her return, the WWE veteran has big plans.
“I’m going to go in and take all the championships,” she said. “I’m going to be my own tag team partner and I’m going to go in there and take those championships first, and then I’m going to take both of the women’s championships at the same time.”
