The Knockouts division was a movement.
That’s what made it special.
Mickie James recently spoke with the folks at WrestlingNews.co for an interview, during which the women’s wrestling legend was asked what made the IMPACT Knockouts division special.
“The Knockouts division has always been special,” she said. “It was always special because it was a movement, it was truly a movement.”
She continued, “A lot of people don’t really throw a lot of credit back to The Beautiful People, who were a massive catalyst in getting the women more time on television. Because the ratings were so high, they would then go like, ‘Well, the women need two segments.'”
