While speaking to Inside The Ropes, Mickie James opened up about her relationship with Vince McMahon. The five-time WWE Women’s Champion stated that McMahon was always kind to her and according to her, they have similar lives. The former WWE Divas Champion said that Vince McMahon had reached out to her after the incident happened and apologized for the issue.

Here is what she said:

“When Vince McMahon called me to apologise when I got my stuff in the trash bag it was a very sincere apology. My issue was never with Vince, because Vince has always been kind to me, he’s always treated me with respect and with love, even when he was upset at me at WrestleMania for this thing (Mickie sticks two fingers up).”

She added: “When I look at Vince’s life and my life, I think—aside from the fact he’s a billionaire now—our beginnings are not all that different. We’re not very different people. I think I connected with Vince on a real level, on a human level, which is probably uncommon,” said Mickie James about her relationship with Vince McMahon.”

It is to be noted that, following the shameful incident, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon made a public apology to her as well.

Mickie James had made her return to WWE back in 2016 and had a five-year stint with the company before being released earlier this year. James revealed that her problem in WWE was not with Vince McMahon but a few people that worked under him in the company.

Following her release from WWE, James made her National Wrestling Alliance(NWA) debut on June during an edition of NWA Power. She recently served as an executive producer for the first all-female event, NWA EmPowerrr, which was a huge success. It was at Slammiversary 2021, James made her return to Impact Wrestling after a six-year absence and began his third stint with the company.
