In the testosterone-fueled world of professional wrestling, Mickie James is showing there’s room for a feminine touch.

In 15 years, James has become one of the most successful wrestlers in the business. She’s held championships, wowed audiences around the world and been one of the most recognizable faces in a surge of popularity for women’s wrestling.

On Nov. 19, James will be among featured performers for a TNA Wrestling match at the Vicksburg Convention Center. It’s the second time TNA has put on a show in the city, the last in April 2010.
