Writing on MickieJames.com, she said: "Honestly I hadn't even considered the label 'Legend' for myself, I feel like that's a whole different level of respect that I have for people that I consider Legends.

"I'm grateful to be a part of the WWE family and I'm excited for Legends night.

"Call me legend, call me Superstar, call me whatever you want. Just know that I am far from done making history, and ready to get back to all the things that I do best – gettin' the W's."

The former six-time world champion is signed to WWE and was last seen on WWE Raw back in September, where she lost a match against Zelina Vega.
