Last week the mystery of La Luchadora was solved when Mickie James made her return to Smackdown LIVE. While many are curious to see how well she fits in with the new era of women's wrestlers, some can't help but wonder how she will coexist on the same brand as her former boyfriend, John Cena.
Mickie recently appeared on the Lilian Garcia: Making Their Way to the Ring and discussed the possibility of having to work around Cena on the Smackdown brand.
"We're all adults, and you know obviously this business is what it is. We've all had our share of relationships failed. I think that being adults and being professionals…I would hope that, and I'm pretty sure that it's going to be pretty awesome, because I'm sure that I'm going to have to work with Nikki in the ring and I know that we could do some really amazing stuff."
Cena's relationship with James was even turned into a WWE storyline in mid-2008. They remained close friends after the relationship ended right up until Cena got married to his childhood sweetheart Liz Huberdeau in 2009. Mickie James didn't take that well and according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter's Dave Meltzer was transferred from Raw to SmackDown later that year as she struggled to work around Cena.
Another of Mickie's former boyfriends, Kenny from the Spirit Squad once claimed James was fired because John Cena didn't want to have a relationship with her.
"He was messing with MJ so I got moved to Smackdown so they could further mess. I jobbed, got fired. When MJ got crazy because he wouldn't date her, she then got fired. Weird biz huh? She got title, on TV show while with him. Serves her well though."
He continued, "She wanted to date him, he said no, she flipped out backstage which led to her demise."
Garcia also asked James about Kenny's comments.
"As far as that whole thing with Ken it was a shame that he went out and said the things that he did and did that, because I feel that a lot of it was a lie and it was mostly just kind of to help his book sales or whatever the case may be. But you know, it is what it is and you know, I'm a grown up."
James has been married to TNA star, Magnus, since 2014.
