Mickie James & TNA Part Ways?, Details


Mickie James’ contract with TNA has expired. TNA and James had been negotiating, and TNA made an offer to James that she rejected. She signed with TNA in September 2010.

On Thursday’s iMPACT! (taped last week) ODB defeats James for the Knockouts Title, which at the time came as a surprise to many.

    TNA is on a downward spiral as much as I hate to admit it. I love that company but the future is looking grim. Mickie James is a big, BIG loss.

    • NonameMcgee says:

      And AJ Styles is the next one to leave, so yeah I think you are right, downward spiral it's going to be another WCW, ECW part of history. Soon you will have to get the dvds if you want to see TNA. Sad if only they would have given creative control to Paul Hayman insted of Hulk Hogan and Bitchoff, I think things would be way differant……….

    Well she earned, what….$200,000 a year

    Now, resign AJ and Kenny

    Not really that bothered tbh. She is overrated. On a side note, Lei D'Tapa tweeted

    "Got some GREAT NEWS today!! Feeling so good!! #blessed #thankful doing happy dance! Ready to DOMINATE!! #ChOoooOhooOoooo"

    Maybe she has signed? Hopefully the Blossoms will follow her

    Wow no spoiler alert… I already knew what happens but come on

    TNA really needs to strip down and rebuild the KO's division from the ground up. Keep ODB, Kim, and Velvet, but then restock the division with indy talents. TNA needs some fresh faces to liven things up a bit. The same could be said about the X division. TNA signed a bunch of guys but we never see them. When was the last time anyone saw Kenny King or Petey Williams? I know TNA is in gear up mode for Bound For Glory, but coming out of it they really need to start using more of the talents that they have. Open up IMPACT with an X division match to get the crowd going and then build from there. And being that they tape 2 shows in one night, they could alternate what titles get defended on each show. The opening show could have the World and X titles up for grabs, with the taped show being the tag team and KO's belts. TNA is making solid strides as of late, but there are still a couple of changes that need to be made to complete it.

    • DirkB says:

      There's 4 KOs left, they can't really strip it down much further.

    • jbcissom says:

      Lei D'Tappa and the Blossom Twins are rumored to be showing up soon in TNA.

      • godoftna says:

        They should also look at bringing back Hamada and Cheerleader Melissa and actually giving them both a solid push. Melissa was ultra talented but was completely wasted, as was Hamada. Aside from brief runs as tag champs with Awesome Kong, Hamada was largely overlooked, despite the fact that she was one of the most athletic in ring performers TNA had at the time.

        • jbcissom says:

          I agree about Melissa, but I'm up in the air about Hamada. It's not that she isn't talented. I'm just not sure there is a market for her stateside. Unless they bring her in as the domineering champ that belittles every competitor, I don't see her having success here.

    • UCEAD11 says:

      I HOPE they go to vegas because they can pocket more funds there and get a better celebrity visiting . I think they can then start putting funds back in their wrestlers pockets. I bet thats what they are trying to do.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      The problem is the KO division is dead… to many people killed the division for many reasons…
      (a) – paying the KOs utter crap, and expecting them to put their full effort into their work. You can't expect an employee to work like they're getting a quarter million a year, and you're really giving them $100 a show.

      (b) – booking the KOs terribly, the last time I watched it seemed like nearly every match was just randomly thrown together.

      (c) – having little to no storyline to anything involving the KOs. Again it seemed like nearly all the matches were just thrown together randomly, and loosely thrown together story lines. The stories involving them always seemed to be something some dude threw together the day before, simply because they were forced to.

  8. tnadude says:

    I liked Mickie, but I'm not sure I'll miss her terribly. Still though, am I not the only one who is disturbed that she had one last match to drop the strap before leaving? Shouldn't she have dropped it a couple of months back to make her disappearance less noticeable?

    They did the same thing with BVD, and let Roode's contract expire when he was Tag Champ. Sorry, but now that it's not just Prichard, this points directly at Dixie herself. I've been fairly critical of her the last few months, and this is just one more example.

  9. ricky_No1 says:

    She will be back when she gets the idea shes not gonna get a better offer no where else. Doubt the WWE would be interested in her.

  10. jbcissom says:

    For all of you guys talking about her going to WWE, don't forget, she's a signed country music artist. Word on the dirtsheets is she isn't accepting any offer, because her record label wants her to focus on music.

    If the reports are true, she was overpaid/underutilized. Good luck with whatever endeavors she pursues.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      I doubt that highly, all the record labels care about is she producing the music when they're ready for a record release. Some musicians have a record ready for release for months or even a year in advance, just the record company spaces out the records appropriately. I know musicians who have released multiple records and have been constantly told they've already done a record, it just hasn't been released yet.

      Also note she'd never sign with WWE because they'd want the rights to her records. If she went back to WWE they'd make her sign over the rights to her music. WWE has a very long standing habit of taking anything anyone does creatively and claiming it as their own.

      • jbcissom says:

        Tour dates man. My family back home said that she's about to start a regional tour apparently with shows in the South (Nashville, Memphis, Jackson MS, and so forth).

        I would honestly prefer to listen to her over Taylor Swift any day of the week and twice on Sundays (and I actually prefer her physical attributes over Swift's as well). She's music first now, and that's cool. I'm just wondering how much longer will it take Jeff Hardy to follow suit.

  11. Leg Drop Jobber says:

    I really liked where her character was going. However, other than the KO's Division needing somebody on it's ever-decreasing roster, she is replaceable.

  12. RealFiregod says:

    I don't care what anyone says, I really like MJ. I felt she was good looking, a great wrestler who sold her moves well, and was able to deliver solid matches. The only real problem that I believe she had was her mic skills kinda were sub par, but her in ring was great.

    I personally would be crushed if she is gone.

    At the same time, im excited for them to bring more K.Os in.

  13. DigestivBiscuit says:

    THe KO will do just fine without Mickie James… I mean come on is not like is a big lost or something beside she was turning like WWE diva which I lost interest, all TNA have to do is sign back some of the EX TNA KO like Sarita, Amada, Zombie hot and bring in Lei D'Tapa, Ivelise Velez and the blossom tween and everythings will be just fine. TNA must keep some of the original KO such as ODB, Gail Kim, Velvet Sky and please keep also Tara tyren.

    • Luchador says:

      very true, that role she was playing was diva like

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      The problem is TNA isn't going to bring in good female wrestlers, because TNA is getting a really bad reputation. Does no one remember the all KO PPV and the shear number of wrestlers that told them no? Nearly every KO that used to work for the company turned them down, that's a REALLY bad sign. They pay many KOs wages comparable to those of the Indy events. The KOs division is at the worst in the company's history, and is far from it's former glory when it was considered the best in the industry.

  14. Mr_Wrestling_IV says:

    Madison Rayne should be showing up soon. I always liked Daisy Haze & would love to see Sarita back along with Lei & Blossom Twins. As long as Velvet Sky is there I'm happy.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      If they really wanted to revive the KOs division there's one female in particular they need to bring back and that's Kong. If they simply found a way to get Kong back and put the title on GK and brought Kong back at the right time; to take the title from GK, it'd revive the division in a matter of weeks.
