Former WWE Superstar Mickie James recently appeared on Chris Van Vliet‘s podcast and discussed a number of topics from her time in the company. James would mention again the rampant ageism that she suffered with television angles whilst in the company.
‘Maybe it’s because I am a wrestler and I look at wrestling from a wrestler and a wrestling fan’s perspective” Mickie James began. “I am up [to date] on what is relevant today, in 2021. [Jennifer Lopez] is one of the sexiest women and she is 50-something, Jennifer Anniston is the same.”
“We don’t look at age like that anymore, but wrestling, as it always has been, has been late to the party” James continued, slating the industry as a whole. “I could never wrap my head around and find it funny that I’m given a walker [on RAW in 2017]. It’s bullsh*t and it’s not funny. I was offended and I said that I was offended.”
Is Mickie James returning to WWE?
“But I am a professional, and as a pro you go, ’˜Fine and let’s see what happens.’ 9 times out of 10 I was right, but it’s already happened” James continued.
“I had to do it just to prove a point. I feel like you should trust me enough, at this point, to know I am not an idiot. I am looking at it through the lens of our audience and where they’re at now’ the former WWE Women’s Champion concluded.
Mickie James will be producing the upcoming NWA Empowerrr all-women’s PPV event.
