Mickie James on changes in TNA, Austin Aries on career

Mickie James on her TNA status, late pay rumors

Doug Nunnally of Rvamag.com is featuring an interview with former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout Mickie James where she addresses her status with the company and pay rumors.

James added, “I can’t really speak on my status right now. Honestly though, I’m not technically under contract with them right now. As far as TNA itself, I wasn’t at the last TV so I can’t speak on that. The company is in the midst of change obviously and that process of changing over. They’ve gone live on the road and they just brought in this new head of talent [John Gaburick] who was with WWE for twenty years or so. I feel like there’s good energy around it, but in the midst of change, people get scared and there’s a bit of that as well. It’s hard to really say. There were rumors and speculation about late paychecks, but my paycheck was never late. It’s not untrue though; I do know that was an issue with some of the people.”

Austin Aries on life outside of pro wrestling

Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier is featuring an interview with TNA star Austin Aries talking about creating a life for himself outside of wrestling should his career end.

Aries added, “I love wrestling, and I want to do it for as long as I’m successful and it makes me happy. But there are other things that make me happy too. I want to be diversified as I can. I don’t want to throw all my eggs in one basket, but right now the wrestling basket has been good to me. I’m thankful for that.”
