Mickie James on Not Feeling Respected In WWE, How The First Trash Bag Incident Broke His Heart – –

– In a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Mickie James looked back on his WWE career. She also touched on the infamous incidents of receiving her equipment and items in trash bags, which happened to her after her two WWE runs. Here are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Mickie James on trash bag incidents with WWE: “The first time I was let go and got my things like this, it broke my heart,” said James. “I totally like it, it hit me in a different way. Because I truly believed this was my dream job, I had worked so hard to make it happen. My dream was taken away, I was heartbroken, I was crushed. And now I get my things, my trash bag and my box, and it’s ‘just a full statement of what they think of me’. This time looking at him I’m like, ‘yeah, they always do that.’ But in reality all the things of me trying to come back, me not being able to come back. Getting invited to be a producer or agent, which is a great role if that’s the kind of thing you like to do. It’s a big role. But all I wanted was a pullout, or something like that before I got into a position like that. Because you know when you play player / coach you always have this feeling like, ‘oh, there could be one last time or one last thing. This kind of unfinished business.

“I just came to the conclusion that I wasn’t going to get it. I wanted to do, like an all-female brand thing, an all-female thing, because we have all the facilities and all the talent and all of that stuff. Maybe I could do something like that and help lead that, because I personally think women’s wrestling makes money. I kind of felt in my heart that it was coming, because I felt like we weren’t, and it’s just me. There are some things that I am willing to compromise on and others that I cannot. And it’s just, on a soul level, I wasn’t ready to compromise my happiness, or what I wanted from the business. Where I felt I was really giving something special. That’s it. So it was like that was where we were at. And you know, the company doesn’t compromise with you or me, and it doesn’t have to be. So this is it. “

Mickie James on not feeling respected enough in his last WWE run: “I try to stay humble and I feel very respectful in a lot of situations. But I felt that very much. I don’t deserve, like, haven’t I put up with enough shit at this point twenty years in the business? Certainly, I have been in the business for fifteen years. But I think it’s because I’ve been wrestling on television for fifteen years. If you think about it, I haven’t won the championship once in my last four and a half years there, not once. I was kind of in the title picture, but it never really paid off or anything like that. It was just a little, I don’t know. I do not know. “
