Mickie James on Her TNA Status, AJ Lee’s Character, More

– Mickie James joined Inside The Ropes this past Thursday to talk wrestling and music. Here are highlights:

Her status with TNA:

“I mean I really don’t know. I’m not at liberty to say. I’m sure people can figure it out.”

TNA Impact going on the road and the differences between the road and 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.”

Thoughts on AJ Lee’s character and comparisons to her WWE character in 2005:

“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.”

    I never made the comparison between Mickie James’ character and AJ’s. I still don’t see it. Just because they are both “crazy”? If anything I think the Bayley character in NXT is more like Mickie,but Bayley isnt just fixated on one star.

    • Hasnan

      The mental breakdowns of AJ’s are the exact same as the ones Mickie had.

      • stevewiser

        Not really…

      • Tyler Drummond

        Yeah, but a lot of people have mental breakdowns like that. I see that as the craziness being similar, but not the character. There are different motivations, Different reasons, lots of differences to the characters themselves.

        • Hasnan

          Yes, but it is wrong to say that AJ’s character has 0 Mickie James in it.

          • Tyler Drummond

            That’s assuming that AJ Lee looked at Mickie’s character and took motivation from that. Besides, I never said AJ’s character has 0 Mickie James in it, I said that I dont see how the characters are all that similar. Being crazy and having mental breakdowns doesnt scream similarity to me, there are lots of characters like that. I dont see Mickie James when I see AJ Lee, that was my point.

            Just look at this
