Mickie James Laments Pitching Ideas And Seeing Them Used Elsewhere

Mickie James has been featured in various companies including WWE and Impact Wrestling where she is the current Knockouts Champion. Having such a storied career has put Mickie in a lot of situations where she’s been encouraged to share her creative ideas.

However, in a recent interview with metro.co.uk, Mickie expressed the disappointment involved with coming up with ideas and then seeing them used for another character on the show.

“There’s been a lot of times where I’ve pitched ideas and they’ve gone to somebody else. Or, I’ve pitched ideas and I thought they were really good, and they – that’s always the most disheartening thing,” Mickie admitted. “When you pitch an idea and you know and believe it’s really good and they kind of ho-hum it, or they’ll thumbs down it a bit, but then they used the exact same idea for someone else.”

Mickie James didn’t go into specifics about which shared storylines were hers because she wants to preserve the behind-the-scenes magic as best she can. But it’s understandable that using her original ideas without involving her in the process is frustrating.

“There’s a lot of stuff and I don’t sit here and like to give away all the stuff behind the scenes because there’s a bit of magic to it but at the end of the day, I’ve been in wrestling for a very long time. So, I’ve seen that and had it happen to me a fair about of times. I just hope that when those ideas, if they’re used on someone else, that that person can either deliver better than I was going to – which a lot of times they don’t, or sometimes they do – or that they tell it the right away. Or tell it in a way that means something to the people.”
