- Mickie James joined Inside The Ropes this past Thursday to talk wrestling and music. Here are highlights:
Her status with TNA:
“I mean I really don’t know. I’m not at liberty to say. I’m sure people can figure it out.”
TNA Impact going on the road and the differences between the road and Orlando:
“Obviously there’s a huge difference. When we were in Orlando, you had vacationers but typically we had the same audience, the same hardcore audience that would come to every taping. I mean that was a cool factor but now being on the road, it’s different, the fans feel like they’re part of the show because it’s in their hometown, they’re gonna get a chance to get seen on TV ya know. I think it’s a great difference. You can see the energy of the show has changed, watching on TV and live, it transforms you as a performer. You feed off it I think.”
Thoughts on AJ Lee’s character and comparisons to her WWE character in 2005:
“You know I’ve heard that and I’ve seen that. I feel like they’ve done it a bit different which is good because obviously you don’t want to do it the same. I did get a chance to see her segments with Stephanie backstage and things people have Tweeted me whether it’s mashups or different things. It’s a cool thing. Obviously we did something right the first time or you wouldn’t want to do it again with a different angle.”
