Mickie James Speaks Out – Returning To Indies, Piggy James


Mickie James recently spoke about the Piggy James angle in WWE and more. Here are the highlights…

On working the independent circuit again: “It is pretty humbling, and obviously now I’m in a different position, but what I find really inspiring is you’ll see so many young wrestlers who have that same fire, that same passion, and that same hunger that I remember so well when I was first coming in. I was just so hungry for knowledge, and you can see it in these people at these indie shows.”

On training with Dory Funk: “He was great. You got to love Dory! He came up to Virginia and I did a week-long camp, and that was my first experience training with him. Then I went down and worked a couple of his shows, and I’ve worked some of his shows since then. He’s very old school, but he’s so sweet in the way he delivers his instructions, and he’s right there in the ring wrestling with you, and showing you how it’s done.”

On the Piggy James angle: “I feel like it was one of the most difficult storylines to take, as I found it difficult to take my personal feelings and emotions out of it. But I can see how it may have resonated, because at some point most of us have been bullied or picked on, so most of us can relate to it in some aspect. Because you’re going to have sympathy for the character and understand where she’s coming from, impacted from the perils of bullying.”

    That is why if she went back to the WWE I would lose all my respect for her

  2. vantheman77 says:

    I wonder why she can't talk about her status with TNA.

  3. JoeWrestling says:

    She looks better than AJ Lee, who looks like something you would look out and see on the wing of your plane.

  4. TheMiwyun says:

    i think its because this big john gaburick or whatever his name is, the creative guy from wwe, has this whole story mapped out. i think all the contracts and releases are fake and its going to be a huge, game changing storyline. hope so anyways
