As it turns out EVOLVE, Beyond Wrestling, and CHIKARA have parted ways with Joey Styles after quoting the (in)famous “grab them by the p-ssy” quote that is considered highly inappropriate, especially when styles and other staff were told to not get political or even make jokes related to the subject on commentary. It was originally said by President-elect Donald Trump in a leaked audio tape back in 2005.

James, who is going to make an in-ring return come NXT Takeover Toronto to battle Asuka pinned the following message.

Dear Joey Styles,

I want you to know that I love you. In the midst of all this ugliness surrounding you at the moment I think it’s important you know that. From me and all your friends who you’ve helped throughout your career. How so many have forgotten that because they’d prefer to jump on the bandwagon to make themselves relevant is sad to say the least. I’ve known you for many years & you’ve always been nothing but respectful & loving to me. I’ve never seen you be disrespectful to any woman in the business. If anything you’ve always been so supportive & kind. I thank you for that. It’s a shame that a JOKE, whether it be in bad taste or not, has been taken so far out of context. I’m curious as to what the lady involved thought of this whole thing. Because if it had been me, I would’ve popped because I understand comedic context. Call me old school but had you been a comedian, or an actor in a movie, everyone would’ve laughed. It’s only because everyone is tiptoeing in this politically correct, sponsor endorsed, & way overly sensitive generation that it’s been blown way out the water.

Last I checked this is the wrestling business. A business where we have cursed, endorsed sexuality to all kinds of extremes, kissed asses, and even murdered on live tv, that a little political joke seems to be the least of offensive things done. I understand we are in a new era but for goodness sake let’s not lose our sense of humor, or the sight of why we all fell in love with this business in the 1st place. That is to be a character, that can do and say things they would never do or say in real life. Because it’s acting! Also, for all your “Friends” who have jumped on the bandwagon now that you’ve been “Fired”, also a complete joke because you CAN NOT fire an independent contractor, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Yes they have a right to their own opinion but we should also remember… people in Glass Houses shouldn’t throw stones. That means pretty much everyone in this business as it’s one of the dirtiest games ever played. That’s my 2 cents… and it’s worth exactly what you paid for it… but since everyone else seems to feel so important to throw out their public statements then why not. Lastly, I will say this again… I love you, I respect you, and I respect everything you’ve done for this business that I adore. This too shall pass…

Always your Friend,

Mickie James-Aldis

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
