Backstage Frustration

Before twitter, Mickie expressed her frustration in a post-show interview with WWE Network‘s Sarah Schreiber. She said,

I come back, and I come back with these goals, and to reclaim who I am in this business, and to really build my legacy, and the first person I run into is someone who I considered a sister, someone who I considered a locker room leader. A fellow veteran and someone that helped pass the torch, and lead the future, and she’s completely been blindsided by Lana and this obsession with social media, and whatever else… that it’s completely blown my mind.

“I didn’t expect to lose my first match back, I didn’t expect to come back and have someone who I considered a fellow veteran act like a 20-year-old”, she fumed.

After all this backlash, let’s hope that in the future WWE will treat Mickie with the respect she deserves.
