Mickie James Addresses Tara and Madison Rayne’s TNA Departures

Knockouts Champion Mickie James has a fair bit of history with recently-departed TNA Knockouts Madison Rayne and Tara, and so it was only fitting that she took a moment to pay homage to them during a Q&A session at her album launch party for Somebody’s Gonna Pay in London, England last night.

Diva Dirt was in the house at the event and caught James’ comments on the recent losses to the Knockouts division.

She said: “It’s sad to see so many of the girls that I love with so much talent, you know, Madison and Tara [leave TNA].

“Of course, everybody knows that Madison’s having a baby, she’s made that publicly clear. But you know, I feel like both of them are way too talented to not be doing something somewhere. I know that Tara recently tweeted a picture that she was getting ready for something; she’s as hard a worker as anybody else and she’s one of the most talented people I’ve ever had the chance to work with.”

The Knockouts Champ was in town to celebrate the launch of her second album and rubbed shoulders with fans at the exclusive event at Grace Bar in London’s Piccadilly Circus.

Stay tuned for more coverage of Mickie’s album launch party.

Somebody’s Gonna Pay is available on iTunes now.
