Six-time WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James has suffered a broken nose and will be out of action for several weeks.
James confirmed the injury on her YouTube Channel, via GAW TV with SoCal Val and Lisa Marie Varon. The country music star explained the complexity of the dislocation:
“So, [I] legit broke my nose in a match, and now I can’t wrestle for a couple of weeks. “Unfortunately that sucks… It wasn’t severe. It wasn’t like my nose was blasted across my face. It was more like a curve and I can’t breathe out the one side and I’ll be honest, I thought it was gonna be a lot more painful, to get it fixed. It was more like pressure to get it fixed. It honestly feels like I have this sinus pressure headache, kind of allergy for the last couple of weeks. My nose was dislocated in a way that my cartilage was dislocated away from my nasal cavity so they had to relocate it back.” (H/T Fightful)
Mickie James’ most recent match was against Zelina Vega on the September 21st edition of RAW. James would lose the match to Vega, who would go on to unsuccessfully challenge Asuka for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions.
