WRESTLING veteran Mickie James was recently honoured with the legend status – as she was named among the 20 top WWE stars set to appear at RAW Legends Night.
But despite an army of fans and a career spanning two decades, the 41-year-old rejects the label.

Writing on MickieJames.com, she said: “Honestly I hadn’t even considered the label ‘Legend’ for myself, I feel like that’s a whole different level of respect that I have for people that I consider Legends.

“I’m grateful to be a part of the WWE family and I’m excited for Legends night.
“Call me legend, call me Superstar, call me whatever you want. Just know that I am far from done making history, and ready to get back to all the things that I do best – gettin’ the W’s.”
