Mickie James Talks About Lacking Confidence After Her Second Release From WWE

Mickie James recently appeared as a guest on the Throwing Down with Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During her appearance on the popular program, the women's wrestling star spoke about losing her confidence after her second release from WWE.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where she reflects on this topic with her thoughts.

“Now I’m sitting in a different seat and more in my own power of trying to figure out what works for me and what I want to do. I lost my confidence. It’s surprising for me to say that, but I feel like towards the end (of WWE), I had a lack of confidence in myself and who I was as a performer, almost like I forgot all this other cool stuff I did and how much it meant to a lot of people. To be able to go away, even the way that I did, and then do all of this stuff, it’s been wild. I’ve had some of my best matches of my career. Honestly, I wasn’t even considering whether I wanted to wrestle after I left. It was more about raising the awareness for women’s wrestling. Everything else was kind of icing on the cake.”
