Mickie James Heartbroken After Suffering Shoulder Injury on WWE RAW

Posted By James Walsh on 09/15/20

Lots of Mickie james news today. Sadly, this one is not good news. The veteran female wrestler, who only returned to WWE a month ago, suffered what appears to be a sidelining injury on RAW against Asuka. The match ended abruptly with a tap out that seemed out of place and Lance Storm, on Twitter, said he felt he saw the referee say Mickie had a hurt shoulder.

This morning, WWE has confirmed the reports with this press release.

Realizing that this could be her last chance at a championship, Mickie James left it all in the ring against The Empress of Tomorrow. But although Mickie James was ready for Asuka, Asuka was also ready for her. The Raw Women’s Champion locked on the Asuka Lock, and despite James’ best efforts to fight out, the referee ruled her unable to continue and awarded the match to Asuka.

In addition, Mickie posted this seemingly confirming the injury.
