The reception to the news has been positive. 

Ohio Valley Wrestling pushed out the announcement that Mickie James is joining the promotion as a Creative Director, Head of Female Talent and Executive Producer for all OVW shows. 

James guest appeared on Busted Open Radio and discussed taking on the new roles and the positive feedback she’s gotten about the announcement. 

I have to say, the love from it and response from it has been all amazing (to my new roles at OVW) so I hope to be able to deliver to somewhat justify the love I guess. I’m really excited though. I’ve been wanting a way to kind of step behind the scenes and learn more in that capacity and really try to build and do something with, you know, women’s wrestling specifically and I think that they have a whole division there, there’s a lot of opportunities and you saw Mick Foley there. He was there at the pay-per-view and the last television tapings and he’s coming in and I think that… I even said it. I was there last Thursday for TV and I was looking at the talent in the stands and I go, ‘I was sitting in those very stands. I was in your very shoes’ and I think there’s a lot of history with myself but with a lot of people in those four walls and I think all of us want OVW to win and I think that they have a lot of opportunities there and I’m just excited. I’m excited dude.

The multi-time Women’s Champion has not wrestled since IMPACT Bound For Glory in October. She challenged Trinity Fatu for the Knockouts World Championship.

Trinity put the Knockouts World Title on the line against Jordynne Grace at TNA’s first pay-per-view since their rebrand, Hard To Kill.
