Mickie James recently spoke with WWE.com to promote her upcoming NXT Women’s Title match with Asuka at NXT Takeover: Toronto on November 19th. During the interview, James was asked why she thinks she will be the first person to defeat Asuka in NXT. “Because I’m one of the best in the world,” James said. She said that she didn’t comeback to WWE to lose, and she is going into the match with the mentality that she is going to win. James explained that if a Superstar doesn’t have a winning mentality, then they have already beaten themselves. “I can guarantee it will be the hardest fight she’s ever had in her life,” James said. James expects that this will probably be one of the toughest battles she has been in.
Back in 2013, James visited the WWE Performance Center in Orlando Florida and stated that Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, and Bayley are standouts in NXT. James explained in this recent interview that she thought that they were breakout stars out of the female division. James thinks that the three women are doing an amazing job on the main roster on separate brands (RAW and SmackDown). James said that nobody can really predict the future or destiny of a Superstar, but it felt good that she predicted that they would do well on the main roster and that they have. “When people have a passion and desire, it burns through and shows. That’s what I was like,” James said.
