Mickie James Praises Paige & Charlotte

TNA Knockout Mickie James praised Charlotte and Paige in an interview with The Roman Show and seemed eager to return to WWE:

Paige. I am going to take her out now. If you don’t see her it’s not my fault. The girls have been killing it in NXT. Kudos to the girls of NXT for killing it. It’s a tough one. They are all so good. I would like to take on Charlotte. That would be fun because I’ve been friends with Ric Flair. He does nothing, but brag about her. He is proud of her as he should be.

I got into wrestling to be a WWE superstar that was my goal. I watched WWE as a child. I was a fan. That’s were I wanted to be. I was fortunate and blessed to achieve that goal. I am grateful. But if I had the opportunity come back course I would be back to kick their butts, easy competition. Just kidding.

Dolph Ziggler Not Yet Signed New WWE Deal?

Although he recently said he’d re-signed with WWE, Dolph Ziggler told Chad Dukes this morning that he has yet to put pen to paper:

“I’m thinking about it right now. I had a request for an upcoming contract that would end a few months from now, maybe two or three months from now, and they requested back what they would like, I countered another offer and we’re waiting to finalize some things. I love WWE and I can’t picture myself wrestling somewhere else but it’s also becoming now where that Wednesday and Thursday, I can’t just do that and get some outside live events for comedy and different movie and television options, which would only be to promote myself as a WWE superstar, to make myself a bigger star so I can advance more in WWE. So if I can’t find that happy medium, I might have to go away for a little bit. What I wanna do is make myself a bigger asset to WWE. If it involves leaving, that would crush me but it might.”
