Born Mickie Laree James, the former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout has had an incredible career over the years. She started as a wrestling valet back in 1999 before debuting as a wrestler in 2002 with TNA. She signed with WWE developmental in 2003 and found herself in OVW, before debuting on the WWE main roster in 2005. She then returned to TNA in 2010.
James has released two country albums and has opened shows for country stars like Rascal Flatts and Gretchen Wilson. She recently had her first child with her fiance, TNA wrestler Nick Aldis (known as Magnus), and is working the independent circuit.
TRIVIA NOTE: James at one point worked as a waitress for Olive Garden and was engaged to former WWE superstar Kenny Dykstra. While she may never re-appear on WWE programming, I’ll always remember her initial run as Trish Stratus’ lesbian stalker. Talk about awesome television!!
