Free agent Mickie James recently did an interview for Inside the Ropes, and the following are highlights. You can check out the entire interview at this link.
On her current TNA status:
"I mean I really don’t know. I’m not at liberty to say. I’m sure people can figure it out."
Impact on the road vs in 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."
Comparisons between her and AJ Lee:
"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."
