Mickie James Addresses ‘Disrespect’ from WWE Following Release

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and Women’s wrestling legend Mickie James recently took to Twitter to offer her disgust at WWE’s ‘disrespect’ following her release from the company.

James was sent her things in a ‘trash bag’ after she had been let go from the company last week. At the time, Mickie James sarcastically tweeted at WWE with an image of the bag, saying “dear @VinceMcMahon, I’m not sure if you’re aware, I did receive my @WWE care package today. Thank you. #AlwaysBlessedandGrateful #WomensWrestlingMatters.”

Mickie James has now taken to Twitter and Instagram to offer a final statement on the situation; saying that she is ‘aware’ that Vince McMahon nor the McMahon family had ‘anything to do’ with the incident.

‘I would like to address this one last time, then we can all move on” James began. “I have so many amazing things on the horizon. The last thing I desire it to have any of that tainted with ugliness and negativity. I take zero pride or joy in the fact that someone would lose their job ever.”

Mickie James was then referring to Mark Carano, so supposedly lost his job over the situation. “I am confident that Vince & the McMahons had no idea that this is how we were sent packing. It hurt a fragile me much more ten years ago when my belongings arrived on my doorstep, because WWE was my everything.”

“I’ve grown as woman and a person as much as we all have in this business” James added. “I am stronger today than I’ve ever been and smart enough to know that it wasn’t a deliberate attack on me. However, the symbolism can not be denied.”

“I am sorry that a thoughtless and tone deaf act would cost anyone their job. But I am not sorry that I had the courage to ensure it will never happen to anyone else moving forward” James emphatically stated. “So if that’s my final mark in this company moving forward I am ok with that.”

“When I first started in this business one of the best pieces of advice I received was, ‘just leave the business better than you found it kid’ and that has always been my ultimate goal. I love you all so much, I am legitimately grateful for my time at WWE and throughout my whole career” James concluded. “I am looking forward to everything that is next. And I truly hope you are too and perhaps you will join me.”
