— As reported earlier, TNA president Dixie Carter and Jeremy Borash attended Mickie James’ country music album release party in Nashville last week. Friends of the recently released WWE Diva indicate she’s not looking to do anything wrestling related for the time being as she is concentrating on her burgeoning country music career. It’s also being said that she doesn’t discuss wrestling much anymore amongst those close to her, however, that will likely come to pass. Nonetheless, Carter is said to be very interested in acquiring James as she is expected to offer her a deal once her ninety-day no-compete clause with WWE expires in July.
