Mickie James underwent surgery on Tuesday at the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in Birmingham, Alabama, to repair her right ACL that is expected to keep her out of action for 7 to 9 months.
Her official website released an interview with where she commented on the injury.
“From the very moment of impact, I knew something was wrong. I hoped against all odds that it wasn’t a serious injury, but it was that bad. I don’t fault Carmella. She has always been a professional. I’ve been very lucky to avoid major injuries in the past; but eventually, everyone’s luck runs out in the ring. After 20 years, I guess mine did.”
