Would Mickie Gun For A Men’s Title?, Sarita Honored In Japan
– Mickie James commented on her official website whether she aspires to win the X Division or World Heavyweight Championship one day. Though she would consider it an honor to compete for either title, it is not among her goals because it is not realistic.
“Although I do believe I have achieved most of my goals in the wide world of wrestling I don’t feel I’ve achieved them all. The Knockouts Tag Team Championships would be an amazing addition to my list of Championships. However, I am a realist in the sense that I live in a man’s world. Although it would be an honor to compete for either the X-Division or Heavyweight Championship I don’t have it among my goals,” James says.
“I honestly feel that a woman will probably never win the Heavyweight Championship unless it’s some sort of gimmick or fluke. I would never want to win any championship under those circumstances. Or unless of course the woman is perceived capable of competing against a man as Chyna was in her heyday. Which could possibly happen with someone like Kharma now. Or even Beth Phoenix when she first debuted. But the fact is I am a woman… I love being a woman and embrace every part of it. I’m not as strong as a man no matter how good I am.”
— Sarita, who internationally competes as Dark Angel, was honored at a ceremony on Sunday following her match for Japanese women’s wrestling promotion Stardom. She was given a plaque and a bouquet of flowers in honor of her tenth anniversary in wrestling (see photo).
