WWE Divas Champion Mickie James Out of Action Indefinitely

Joe Burgett Senior Writer IIISeptember 10, 2009

As many of you probably have heard by now, Mickie James was sent home from RAW's house shows toward the end of last week. This was only after competing in the previous two shows in St. Paul, Minn., and Sioux Falls, S.D.

James also missed the RAW taping in Chicago, where she was supposed to be in a tag team match. She was not at the recent RAW house show in Madison, Wisc., either, which got many people wondering.

Many thought that James did something wrong and the WWE was taking action. There was a report from the WWE saying, "Her absence should be taken with a grain of salt."

That statement makes us think even more so that some type of action was taken against her; however, one person from the Richmond area (James' hometown) claims to have known James for over 10 years and recently let Web sites know that one of James' breast implants burst.

It happened in a tag match against Rosa Mendes and Beth Phoenix over the weekend and the timetable for her to return is indefinite.

The storyline angle will be that she is out with a shoulder injury.

I certainly don't know how painful it must be, as I'm a male, but I can only imagine it's quite painful.

What many people will be wondering now: What will happen with the Divas title that James currently holds? Will she have to drop it or will she be OK to come back in a few weeks?

If there is no time table for her to return, I would think the WWE would take the title from her like they have done many times in the past.

While the Divas title is not as big as the WWE Title, I would think the WWE wants to have it being defended while James is out.

I mean, if she is out for a few months and the WWE never has any matches for the title, then the Divas Division on RAW will be upset.

Now that there are two women's titles in the WWE (one on RAW and one on SmackDown), having one brand's Divas get a chance to compete for a title and the other not getting the same just wouldn't be fair.

So, if I was unsure when James would be back, I would take the title away from her and give her a chance to compete for it once she returns.

It keeps everyone happy and I am sure James would understand why the title has to be taken away. I would think that after the Breaking Point PPV on Sunday, the WWE would set up some sort of tournament for the title.

I am sure someone like Beth Phoenix would walk away with the title, but the tournament would be good for the Divas.

Let's all hope James gets better soon, but it looks like she is going to be out of action for quite some time.
