Mickie James Remarks About Carrying Her Matches

James is a selfless veteran having put over several young talent in the last couple of years.

However, the 9-time WWE & TNA Champion recently noted how her back hurts not because of the bumps taken in the ring but because of carrying “greenhorns” during her matches especially Sasha Banks, Bayley and Ember Moon.
