Default Mickie James is back. Now what?

As revealed on last night's SMACKDOWN, it was revealed that La Luchadora was the returning Mickie James. Mickie helped Alexa win the title and aided in Alexa beating down Becky after the match. My question is what now? Personally I would have preferred Mickie to attack both women and syand tall with the belt making her attenions clear-she is back for the belt. She could say her NXT match with Asuka convinced her she is as good as the so called Revolutionals.
But SMACKDOWN did not go that route, instead they had her aligning with the heel. My question is what do you think her motivation will be? Has she been secretly acting as Alexa's mentor all along? Is she jealous of the Revolutionals? What do you think her motivations will be?

I am thrilled Mickie is back and on SD where the writing and storytelling is great.

Thoughts.

Seemed like she was taking orders from Alexa too. If I recall, Alexa started the beatdown and signaled for Mickie to join her, then directed Mickie to get Becky up. And then Mickie was raising Alexa's hand after. Maybe that was all just coincidence, or was she being presented as basically working for Alexa? Hard to figure how as Mickie is the veteran and Alexa the newcomer. We'll see where it goes.

I'm loving that Mickie James is back. I am somewhat surprised that she has aligned herself with Alexa Bliss. Personally, I thought they would go the route of crazy vs. crazy, since we know what Mickie James can be like, especially looking at her feud with Trish in 2006. Perhaps Mickie turns on Alexa down the line, but I am pleasantly surprised to see her return as a heel.

As for the back story between Mickie and Alexa, it seems more like a mentor thing than anything else, and I like that. I fully expect her to be in the title match at WrestleMania and try to screw Alexa Bliss over. Should be an exciting few months for women wrestling and another positive for SmackDown Live.

I know the veterans are brought back to bring up younger talent, but there is a selfish part of me that would like to see Lita come back and help Becky. Lita and Mickie would then get into a feud with roles reversed (Lita is face; Mickie is heel) from when Lita left full time.

what now? Well that's easy.

They need to build her back up with the newer/casual fans, who may not know who she is. They wanted to make her heel (which I don't understand but ok then) and put her with the biggest female heel on Smackdown. If it's true and Alexa is playing the Dibiase to Mickie's Virgil then I fully expect her to blow up and either cost her the title or take it from Alexa herself.

You are right. After rewatching, Alexis was directing Mickie which is even more confusing. If anything you would think it would be the other way around. Kind of disrupts the Mickie as mentor scenario

In some ways her being an "unknown" to some in the Universe may be a good thing. People may be able to accept her as a heel easier if they don't have all those face years in their heads.

What do you mean "what now?"

Mickie James, the greatest female wrestler between the Attitude and Women's Revolution eras, just made her return to cost Becky Lynch the title. Obviously, we're going to get a feud between these two women as a way to get Becky Lynch away from the title, and allow Alexa Bliss to go on to defend the title against other competitors. Lynch was the #1 female draft pick, the first-ever women's champ on SDL, and the only competitor who has Alexa's number: you really couldn't give anyone else a title shot. With her out the way, you can have Nikki Bella, the other popular face character, take on Alexa. You also have the options of Eva Marie & Naomi making their big returns from suspension or foot injury, respectively. Hell, you could have Carmella challenge Alexa, where both women fight over Ellsworth so they have someone in their corner to interfere for them in their matches.

I believe the partnership between Alexa & Mickie won't last long. It'll be a way for Alexa to get the rub from a great veteran, and then move on. As to what the motivations could be, I could speculate that it's Mickie being pissed off at the Four Horseman for putting the women on the map whilst she carried the Diva's division on her back during the model years, or she could go back to her crazy persona by saying Becky reminded her of Trish Stratus, and saying she became La Luchadora because it's the closest thing she can do to wearing Becky Lynch's skin.

Right now, Mickie James, my all-time favourite female wrestler, taking on Becky Lynch, who is my current favourite female wrestler, should be an amazing feud that could potentially make it all the way to the big stage (assuming they have the room).

I agree that their alliance won't last long, but I feel it'll do more with them just drifting apart than a big blow up right away. After the Rumble I'm guessing we're getting Nikki vs Alexa for the title, and Mickie and Becky in a separate feud. If Becky needs a partner in the mean time and between time Naomi is back from her injury.

It makes sense for Mickie to want to get in good with the champion. Her targeting one of the four horsewomen could be spun as her feeling they didn't pay any/enough respect to the women that came before them (Mickie, Beth, Lita, Trish...).

EDIT: Didn't read all the way through the above poster's post before I posted, basically the same idea. I hope they go with this over crazy Mickie, I feel like that would be more suited for a feud with Nikki. Her having the largest social media following, reality shows, etc. makes for a perfect crazy fan story.



Lots of exciting possibilities for WM.

Clearly Alexa and Mickie are forever linked by having a vowel at the end of their first names.

Otherwise, I have no well thought out idea where this is going other than Mickie will work a program with Becky and Alexa will move on to Naomi or Nikki. Maybe Becky has taste in music so Mickie shut that down. Maybe Mickie hates foreigners. Maybe Mickie is going to act like a mean girl this time around like Alexa.

The important thing is that Mickie wears a different costume than that La Luchadora thing. She is way too hot for that.

And it's good that we're curious. Means we are invested and likely to continue to tune in.
