Mickie James Discusses Career Merger, Update On Rhino’s Status



– ESPN.com profiled Mickie James yesterday on their “Page 2″ section. She discussed synergizing her foray into the country music world with her wrestling career.

“I tried to make a beautiful marriage out of the two [careers], and I think TNA gives me the opportunity to do that,” she said. “But it’s not a gimmick, and I’m not some novelty act.”

She was also asked if she was scared jumping 20 feet off a cage into rival Tara.

“Of course I was scared,” James said. “I said to myself, ‘Oh, this is amazing. Please don’t get hurt. Please don’t get hurt.’”

– On the November 18 edition of iMPACT!, Rhino explained that Eric Bischoff had agreed to re–sign him as long as he turned on the rest of EV 2.0. The following week Dreamer defeated Rhino in a Street Fight. After the match Rhino attacked Dreamer, but was then chased away by Rob Van Dam, who challenged him to a First Blood match at Final Resolution, which RVD ended up winning. On the following iMPACT! episode, Bischoff refused to give him a contract and had Fortune and Immortal remove him from the arena.

It was legitimately meant as his final appearance with the organization. Company officials wanted to re-sign him, but both sides couldn’t agree to terms as he was looking for guaranteed money. The deal, however, is open ended in the sense that he could return if he agrees to their terms.
