Mickie James spoke with Ledger-Enquirer.com to promote TNA Wrestling’s live event yesterday in Columbus, Georgia. Highlights from the interview are as follows:

The challenges a woman faces in the male-dominated world of professional wrestling: “As a woman I want to prove myself even more. I might not be as tough as the guys but sometimes I have the match of the night. Then the guys have to go out and top me. Its still such a male-dominated sport that were not taken seriously. We still have lingerie matches and pillow fights. Its a real task. But most of the fans know who I am.”

Injuries she has endured throughout her career: “I havent had a ton of injuries. I had a MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infection in my knee. I had to get it drained and removed. My knee (was swollen) up to the size of my thigh. I was stubborn. I told everyone Ive wrestled with worse than this. But I flew home and got it checked. The doctor told me if I had waited it could have been a lot worse. Ive had stitches in my eye, lost a tooth, Ive separated both shoulders twice and Ive had a few concussions.”

Stacy Keibler: Shes hot stuff. I heard she dated George Clooney for a minute. Im so jealous. Thats awesome. Shes really branched out and done things as a female that the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin have done.

“But shes never really been a wrestler. Shes done lingerie and pillow fight matches.”

What would surprise fans about herself: “I try to keep the sanctuary of the storylines. That means I travel by myself. Ive found that the people I have the most connections with are the ones I work best on opposite sides. We have the passion for wrestling and we want the same thing. You say you’re sorry later.”
