Mickie James Opens Up On Health Scare, Her Title Match Against Tara

Josh Isenberg

TNA Final ResolutionTNA Knockout and former WWE Diva Mickie James had an exclusive interview with Diva Dirt this past weekend to hit a number of topics heading into her championship match against Tara on Sunday.

When James was asked about her tumor being removed:

"It was pretty scary. I didn't get into a whole big ordeal as far as my surgery went because it was so scary and very personal, and kind of humbling in a sense. In this industry, we're so accustomed to fighting off pain or negating it, and working through it, sometimes we don't take little things very seriously. Most times when we think of getting hurt or having to go to the hospital, it's usually for to do with an injury in the ring, so for it to be for something personal and to have this mass… and thank God it was benign."

On her match with Tara at TNA Final Resolution and being a Knockouts Champion in the past:

The matches have been incredible. And anytime I've lost it, I can say the same. I'm definitely going to go into this Sunday full steam ahead with a purpose. I really want this Knockouts Championship. [...] It's often negated how much that championship means to us, because it truly means at that time, at that point, you are the best.
