After being fired along with a dozen other colleagues on April 15, Mickie James returned to talking about WWE several times, especially after her personal belongings were delivered to her released in that of the ThunderDome in Tampa, in a garbage bag.
After the garbage bag scandal, which also led to Mark Carrano being fired from his role as director of talent relations, Mickie James is back in the spotlight for some very strong statements she allegedly affirmed in her latest interview, with a few words about the management that did not in fact go down to a very large slice of the public.
According to James, in fact, WWE would have rejected all of her ideas about a brand entirely made up of women, because female wrestling does not pay enough.
Mickie James had a lot to say today on GAW TV
Speaking to the Grown-Ass Woman podcast, Mickie James revealed: "Everything I have proposed has always been denied to me.
I wanted to find a balance in the midst of everything. It was the moment when I said 'Why don't we make an all-female brand?', If I could I would have been the leader of the group, of this fantastic group of women...
we have the talent, the skills, the skills. She would help a lot of girls who couldn't get any TV time. But this person said to me 'They never will. Ever and never. Women's wrestling doesn't make money. WWE Evolution was the lowest-grossing PPV in WWE history.
I understand what you are trying to do, but I cannot understand why you are fighting so hard for it. You should try to play the cards you are dealt well, rather than fight to be the protagonist of the show' I was simply embittered and unused, in a moment I felt useless, as well as old, in the midst of a bunch of people who still thought the same as a thousand years ago.
I think we missed a lot of moments because of that reasoning, from my battle with Trish's record to Charlotte who was on the side first and then hit Chelsea Green. Initially, that moment was created by me in 2019 for Liv Morgan because I love Liv.
We haven't seen a bunch of good times and now they're terribly missing because of this mentality." Mickie James claimed that Vince McMahon called her personally afterward the trash bag incident last week to provide assurances that it wasn't what he thought of her.
"I felt because I was asking for this one thing, it was going to come with a price," James continued. "I'm not saying that's from Vince because he's always been respectful to me. He called me on the phone to apologize for this incident and to let me know that this isn't what he thought of me. I tagged Vince because he needs to know."
