Mickie James chats with Santino Marella before stepping into the ring to announce whether or not he will be in Rebellion. James reveals that he just finished talking to the doctors and prepares to leave.
James comes out to the ring and starts talking about the ‘Last Rodeo’ and her goal of showing that she could keep up with the rest and be the champion. Mickie admits that when he’s in the ring and in front of the fans he feels like he’s 20 years old, but when he goes backstage he realizes that it’s not like that and the pain is very present. James thanks the fans for all their support and announces that he cannot compete in IMPACT Rebellion this Sunday and Deonna Purrazzo and Jordynne Grace will have to challenge for the title on Sunday.
