Mickie James will produce an all-women's pay-per-view for the National Wrestling Alliance on Saturday 28 August.

This was announced on last night's episode of NWA Powerrr, with owner Billy Corgan bringing James out to break the news. Mickie said that while she now had the opportunity to wrestle anyone she wants, she has always wanted to run an all-women's pay-per-view, which she now has the opportunity to do.

The as of yet unnamed show will be part of a two-PPV weekend. Both shows will take place in St. Louis, Missouri, with the second, NWA 73, going down in the historic Chase Ballroom.

Fightful Select had reported that the NWA was planning an all-women's pay-per-view prior to last night's Powerrr hitting the airwaves.

James was one of several wrestlers let go by WWE on 15 April, when the company cut her alongside the likes of Samoa Joe and The IIconics. This is her first full re-emergence in professional wrestling since then.

Speaking shortly after her WWE release, James revealed she had pitched an all-women's PPV in WWE, only to be told that women's wrestling doesn't draw and Evolution was the company's lowest-rated PPV ever.
