Mickie "Moose" Knuckles is one of a kind. As a wrestler, she can be as hardcore as they come, yet she is also capable of putting on a great wrestling match. Despite her smashmouth reputation, Mickie is also very open to helping other wrestlers.
Outside of the ring, she is a wonderful mother. It is that role, which ultimately caused her to announce her retirement last week. Prior to her retirement announcement, Mickie announced she was going to have a baby.
This is a bittersweet moment for everyone. We all hate to see Mickie walk away from wrestling, but we are all hay that she is leaving on her own terms. We all wish her and her family a lifetime of happiness.
My more thorough reflection on Mickie and her announcement can be found on Tru School Sports at I Love Mickie Knuckles. The title is a play on I Hate Mickie Knuckles, a great blog by Resistance Pro co-owner Gabe Baron. As I wrote, we all love Mickie.
Thank you for the memories, Mickie Knuckles and best wishes always!
