WWE Diva and Former TNA Knockout Mickie James
WWE Diva and former TNA Knockout Mickie Laree James was born on August 31, 1979 in Montpelier, Virginia.
Before the WWE Mickie wrestled extensively in the US. She started out as a valet back in 1999 and soon moved onto the wrestling ring. Mickie was trained at Dory Funks "Funking Conservatory" (other graduates of Dory's wrestling school include Kurt Angle, Edge, Christian Cage, Rhino, Lita, Paul London and Matt and Jeff Hardy) and at the KYDA Pro Training School. She also trained at the ECW dojo for a time. In addition to all of that, she also attended wrestling camps run by Ricky Morton (The Rock 'n' Roll Express) and Bobby Eaton (The Midnight Express).
Mickie started out using the name Alexis Laree which was a combination of her real name and a name she used on stage as a dancer.Her first match was an intergender tag team match with Jake Damian against American Mike Brown and Candie.
During the time Mickie wrestled on the Indy Circuit, she held the SCW Diva title, the UWF Women's Wrestling title, the PWF Women's Wrestling title, the CSWF Women's Wrestling title, the ICW Junior Heavyweight title, the DCW Women's title and the Ultimate Championship Wrestling Women's title.Even though Mickie had all of that success, she had to take a job as a waitress at the Olive Garden to make ends meet.
Mickie moved up to the Ring of Honor wrestling promotion which lead her to working for TNA Wrestling.While in TNA, she became the first member of Raven's "The Gathering" and had a feud with Trinity (Stephanie Finochio).She also became the first woman to compete in a Clockwork Orange House of Fun match.
While continuing to wrestle for TNA, she was sending tapes of her wrestling to the WWE in hopes of moving to their organization. After a try out match against Dawn Marie, she was signed to the WWE and sent to their Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) training program.In OVW, she would tangle with a few ladies that she would work with later in the WWE including Jillian Hall, Beth Phoenix and Shelly Martinez (Ariel).
Mickie moved to the WWE in October of 2005 using her real name (which she had been using in OVW) and started a storyline with her as the biggest fan of then WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus.Mickie put in a performance that echoed and rivaled Victoria's old "Psycho" persona. Mickie acted "crazy as a bit 'coon" as JR put it, but it seemed the crazier Mickie acted, the more the fans embraced it. At one point, Mickie was getting a bigger "pop" than Trish in the match intros and during the matches.
Mickie finally turned "face" and engaged in feuds with Victoria, Lita and Melina.
Today, Mickie is still a fan favorite with a very large and loyal online following.
She has held the WWE Women's Wrestling Championship four times so far.
Besides her ring appearances, Mickie has guest starred on Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp and Psych.
She also has her associate of arts degree in business administration and is studying for her Bachelor of Arts degree.
Mickie James was released from the WWE on April 22nd, 2010.
Her final match in WWE was on the April 23rd edition of SmackDown!, with her teaming with Beth Phoenix against Team Lay-Cool.
Mickie and Beth lost.
After wrestling everyone figured Mickie would concentrate on her music career.
Her first album, Strangers & Angels, was released on May 18, 2010, and before that her first single, "Are You With Me?" was released February 16, 2010.
But Mickie has kept her hand in wrestling, making appearances for the World Wrestling Council (WWC), one Puerto Rico's two main professional wrestling promotions.
She will also be doing some appearances for International Championship Wrestling (ICW) and Maryland Championship Wrestling (MCW)
If you follow Mickie's career at all you know that after I wrote this Mickie showed up on TNA and became a TNA Knockout.
Now I think most of the Knockouts roster is comprised of ex WWE Divas.
Since joining TNA, Mickie has held the TNA Women's Knockout Championship twice, making her the only female wrestler to hold the WWE Women's Championship (five times), the WWE Divas Championship and TNA Knockout Championship.

Mickie James Updates - June 27, 2015
Mickie James became Maryland Championship Wrestling's new Women's Champion.
She defeated Amber Rodriquez in the main event of MCW's Ladies Night event.
So I guess wrestling really is still in her blood after all.
She is also doing some wrestling for Global Force Promotions.
It looks like at Chikara's King of Trios 19 event in September 2016, Mickie James, Victoria and Jazz will team up as one of the trios.
Unfortunately, Team Original Divas Revolution (Jazz, Mickie James and Victoria) made it to the second round but lost to The Warriors Three (Oleg the Usurper, Princess KimberLee and ThunderFrog).
NXT Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Mickie James
Asuka has claimed that no one is ready to challenge her.
The NXT Women’s Champion’s theory will be put to the test at NXT TakeOver: Toronto on November 19th, when she defends her title against the returning Mickie James.
WWE NXT Diva Asuka, "The Empress of Tomorrow", defeated former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout Mickie James at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.
Now....will Mickie come back to the WWE?
Mickie James to SmackDown Live?
December 22, 2016: Well it has been rumored (at several sources) that Mickie James is reportedly headed for SmackDown Live.
Mickie James returned to SmackDown Live
And yes she did return.
Mickie has signed a multi-year contract with the WWE.
On January 17th, 2017 Mickie returned to SmackDown Live, revealed herself as "La Luchadora" and cemented her Heel status by helping Alexa Bliss retain her SmackDown Women's Championship against Becky Lynch in a steel cage match.
Mickie and Becky then entered into a feud on Twitter.
Now Mickie is embedded in a feud with Becky Lynch.
