Having already cemented her status as one of the greatest female wrestlers, Mickie James’ valuable experience is still on display. The former champion was recently interviewed by Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV where she explained her aversion to “The Man” gimmick and much more.
James stated that Lynch’s current gimmick is outdated, but went on to praise the former Smackdown women’s champion by calling her “amazingly talented”. James said:
” I said it there and I’ll say it again, women have always been the dominant sex. So if you want to do this whole ‘I’m the man’ thing which I think went out in 2010, if you want to bring that back, that’s cool. But I’m a woman, I’m a grown ass woman, you know what I mean? And I’m proud of it. I love Becky though, I do respect her. I think she’s fantastic, she amazingly talented. I’m just better.”
The five-time women’s champion expressed her thoughts on All Elite Wrestling which has taken over the pro-wrestling world as of late. James claimed that competition is always exciting and also added:
” I think everyone achieves higher peaks with that and we all welcome competition. It’s good for the boys, it’s good for my friends who want somewhere else to work and that’s great. But aside from talk, I haven’t really seen anything yet.”
