Mickie James surrenders Impact Knockouts title, not cleared to compete

Mickie James was forced to surrender the Impact Knockouts title as she will not be cleared to compete at the Rebellion pay-per-view this weekend.

James’ fate was revealed last night on Impact when she cut a promo in an empty arena in the final segment of the show. James thanked the fans for sticking with her through the Last Rodeo but said it was the best decision for the locker room and the title.

She placed her title and cowboy hat in the middle of the ring and told Deonna Purrazzo and Jordynne Grace that it’s now their time.

James is suffering from broken ribs and shoulder and pec problems and was not going to be cleared in time for the show despite resting for a month. Her injuries kept her off the Sacrifice and Multiverse United shows in March.

She is the second Impact star to surrender her title after Impact World champion Josh Alexander also had to do the same due to his injury.
