Mickie James recently returned to WWE on this past Monday’s episode of WWE Raw. The veteran, who made her WWE debut 15 years ago, recently told Instinct Culture’s Denise Salcedo that she didn’t come back to the company just to have good matches and not get another run with a Women’s Championship. She also named several Superstars she wants to get in the ring with before she hangs up her rhinestone Lucchese boots.
“I wanna win one more championship, I didn’t come back, this whole run to not win one piece of gold,” said James. “Maybe those shiny tag team championships because they’re new, that would be fun…. As far as wrestling I wanna continue to contribute… I do have so much more to give I think on both sides of the arena. I do eventually want to crossover and help a lot of the younger talent. Because there are the girls, there’s Nattie, there’s me, there’s women in the locker room that are helping but there isn’t a lot to be able to give that to the talent that is coming up from NXT. To be able to help them with their promos, stuff like that, just kind of guide them or show them because even though it’s 2020 and we do have all these movements and we do have all of this stuff and it is a different world out there, we still are the Women’s division and we are still fighting, we’ve come a long way and it’s taken a long time to get there.”
“I haven’t had the chance to have a true singles program, I think with the exception of Alexa, everything has been tag team matches, everything has been an alliance or something,” continued James. “The story hasn’t really been about me for the most part except for my storyline with Alexa. So, I can’t wait to work with all of the girls, I wanna work with Bayley, I wanna work with Sasha, I wanna work with Becky Lynch when she comes back, I wanna work with Charlotte when she comes back. This is actually my first time really working with Nattie, like in a program kind of thing so I am excited about what we can do together. I mean I love Nattie, I’ve always thought Nattie is one of the best wrestlers we have.”
