Mickie James Comments on Possibility of Returning to the WWE Divas Division
Former Women's and Divas Champion Mickie James sparked rumors of a possible return to WWE this week by rekindling her relationship with World Wrestling Entertainment.
Mickie is now helping train the company's developmental female talent at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida for the week, and attended Thursday night's NXT live event in Tampa. WWE caught up with James for an interview where she discussed her visit to the state-of-the-art facility materialized.
"I got a call from Talent Relations, and they asked if I would be interested in coming down, checking it out and working with some of the girls here. Of course, I jumped all over it; I was happy to do it. The place is amazing, it really is mind-blowing. We had all prayed for something like this [when we were] breaking in."
In addition to teaching the girls how to wrestle, James focused on bringing their personalities out.
"Mostly being vocal in the ring and being vocal while they’re working instead of just thinking about what their moves are and what they need to do in there. Actually being who they are."
Though she came to Florida to assist WWE's female developmental talent, James is still interested in returning the company as a performer.
"Of course, I would absolutely love that, but you never know. I’m just trying to take advantage of this opportunity. If I can pass a little knowledge of what I know, then hopefully that will do something, if not for me, then for the future of WWE and women’s wrestling itself."
Should James return to WWE, she would be most interested in working with three particular Divas: Natalya, AJ Lee and Brie Bella.
"I would love to work with Natalya; we only had a couple matches when I was there. I would love to work with AJ Lee, and I think Brie [Bella] has really come a long way since I was in WWE, so I’d love to do some stuff with her"
