Mickie James: I Want To Wrestle In Japan

The NWA star wants to travel to as soon as possible

Much has been made of Mickie James’ arrival to the NWA, with the former WWE Women’s Champion executively producing the upcoming all-women’s Empowerrr event.

James herself is not booked for the show, instead taking to the ring for NWA’s 73rd Anniversary Show, and ahead of that spoke with Bell to Belles about who she could face:

“So many! And I am honoured,” said James “Top of the list, even though I know we’ve seen it before, Serena [Deeb]. Oh, I think the AEW champion Britt Baker is killing it, right now. I think Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo is in a class all her own, and would absolutely love a chance to work with her. I know I and all my fans are looking forward to the chance to work with Thunder Rosa. I think Kylie Rae and I could have an incredible match together and would love to wrestle her. And personally, on a real level, I would love to stand face-to-face with Kiera Hogan. Because that’s a real moment. However, the biggest thing I’m learning in putting this whole event together is the amount of truly talented women out there. It’s pretty incredible to see.”

But the upcoming NWA shows aren't all that James is focusing on, revealing that she’d love an opportunity to work in Japan, saying “I’d really love to go to Japan. I’ve never been, aside from WWE. It’s pretty much the only place left for me. It’s on the bucket list.”
