Mickie James hasn't wrestled on WWE TV since she lost to Zelina Vega on the September 21 episode of Monday Night Raw. The six-time Women's Champion was put on the shelf soon after as she discovered she had broken her nose and needed to have it rebroken to fix it.
James said: "Legit broke my nose in a match so now I can't wrestle for a couple of weeks, unfortunately. That sucks. It wasn't severe. It wasn't like my nose was blasted across my face. It was more like a curve and I can't breathe out the one side of it."
Mickie returned to Raw this week for Raw Legends Night and her in-ring return may not be too far away. According to Inside The Ropes, James has been medically cleared following her recent injury and is free to step back inside the squared circle.
Some speculated that James' time as an in-ring performer was over because of her appearance on Raw Legends Night, but Inside The Ropes noted she is still an active Superstar on the roster
