Mickie James to appear in AAA

Lucha libre promotion AAA has announced that TNA Knockouts Champion Mickie James will be appearing at its biggest show of the year, TripleMania XIX on June 18 at the Palacio de los Deportes (“Sports Palace”) in Mexico City, Mexico.

It made the announcement on its Twitter page earlier today:

MICKIE JAMES será la invitada especial en #Triplemanía XIX! Gracias por sus votos!

For those of you who don’t speak Spanish, that translates to:

MICKIE JAMES will be the special guest in #Triplemanía XIX! Thanks for the votes!

We told you in yesterday’s Ringbelles Roundup about how AAA was running a fan poll to see which Knockout they would like to appear at TripleMania. Everyone exept Sarita was eligible (she couldn’t make an appearance, as she is contracted to rival promotion CMLL), and the people wanted Mickie.

This is the second year that TNA wrestlers will be appearing at TripleMania – last year, Beer Money, Christopher Daniels and Abyss competed on the show – but James will be the first TNA contracted female to be there. However, last year saw former Knockout Peyton Banks – under her more well-known character of Rain – team with Jennifer Blake and Sexi Star (as Las Gringas Locas) to beat Cinthia Moreno, Mari and Faby Apache.
