Mickie, on the other hand, returned under her old moniker ‘Hardcore Country.’ However, she was not there to wrestle, yet. Apart from Impact, James holds a post at National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).

She is one of the executive producers of NWA’s first all-female PPV NWA Empowerrr. As a representative, James came out to Purrazzo to offer her a post at the event.

Notably, Thunder Rosa is a part of NWA’s women’s locker room and has been the Women’s Champion. However, Purrazzo was not feeling well about James’ proposal.

She accused the veteran of stealing her spotlight. The Virtuosa told James to “grab your trash bag and get the hell out of here.” This resulted in her receiving a slap and a superkick from the former three-time Knockout Champion.
