WWE is making a major play in terms of the ‘forbidden door’ and bringing in one of the top talents in IMPACT Wrestling, Mickie James, over for the Royal Rumble event at the end of January.

It was recently confirmed that the Knockouts Champion would be taking part in the Women’s Royal Rumble match, and the WWE social media accounts even referred to her as Knockout’s Champ.

According to a new report from Ringside News, WWE and Vince McMahon in particular are more than happy to have these deals with outside talent.

“A tenured member of the team told us that, ‘we need 30 women for the Rumble. Mickie left on bad terms with the whole Carrano thing'” the site noted.

“So when Laurinaitis reached out for her to be in the Rumble, she told him she’s under contract to Impact. That’s not an issue anymore.

“We were told that ‘Vince doesn’t care'” RSN added, “and he even ‘okayed mentioning IMPACT [on-air] as part of the deal.’ At this point, there are ‘no borders.'”
