Mickie James did an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture to discuss a wide range of topics.
During the interview, the former WWE Women’s Champion was asked what WWE will have to do to create another star that can take Becky Lynch’s spot as a top star.
Lynch wasn’t just the top star in the women’s division, but also one of the biggest stars that WWE had under contract including male talent.
Her rise came in late November 2018 to the point where she headlined WrestleMania 35 in 2019 when she beat Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Title.
She is currently on the sidelines as Lynch is pregnant with their first child and is due in December.
“It’s a rarity when someone gets red hot like that, that’s a different level. We all aspire to get to that. You just need; sometimes it’s just that one thing, that one thing and she got it. And she rolled with it. She was on fire. Nobody was more over than Becky…It’s so awesome to see that now as being a female spot because those spots were always delegated for men, that kind of big money, big level push, that much time, that much investment, and getting the microphone and all of that stuff.
She took the ball and she ran with it and she kicked ass and I’m so proud of her… I think that spot is open, but it’s one of those things where yeah that spot is open but it’s going to take not only a big character but the right investment.”
James also discussed her return to the company, her thoughts on fan reactions, who she would like to work with, plans within WWE and more.
