Way back in the infancy of RESISTANCE Pro, when Jacques and I were putting together our initial talent roster, the first name out of my mouth was Mickie Knuckles. While several now-famous names worked BLACK FRIDAY, the one I wanted the most to be there wasn’t. Her reason was simple – she was booked elsewhere. I was disappointed, but life went on.
A few months later, we needed a legit challenger for the then Women’s Champion. Again the first name that came to mind was Mickie Knuckles and, again, she was unable to make the show. Her reason was that she was pregnant. Since my wife and I were expecting as well, I was empathetic and understood.
I still wasn’t happy, but took it as a sign that our paths would never cross via R-Pro. Bummer.
A little over a year later, I received an email out of the blue from Mickie. She said that she was getting back in the ring after having her daughter and would like the opportunity to work for R-Pro in any capacity. She came in -all the way from Louisville- to work a dark match a few weeks later for FREE.
She got over immediately.
