Over the course of a brief but memorable WWE career, Mickie James underwent a stunning transformation from psychotic fanatic to one of the most beloved female competitors ever to step inside the squared circle. Mickie might have been a peppy, energetic sweetheart, but she was also as dangerous in the ring as any that came before her.
Other TNA talent recently profiled by WWE include Victoria (a/k/a Tara), Kurt Angle and The Dudley Boyz. Jeff Hardy, Rob Van Dam, Sting and Tiffany (a/k/a Taryn Terrell) are also featured in the Alumni section.
