Recently, Jade sat down with The VIP Lounge podcast with MVP to talk about her departure, her feud with Rosemary and option of an NXT run. Highlights of the interview below:
On her feud with Rosemary: “She is the most creative person that I know, so she came up with everything. She’s a genius. We’ve never wrestled each other until we were in Impact. We’ve known each other since SHIMMER and we always wanted to wrestle each other but that was back when I was Mia Yim and she was Courtney Rush. She didn’t have the gimmick that she does now, so I feel like if we would have wrestled in SHIMMER it would’ve been totally different than what it turned out to be for our feud. The first time we wrestled was for a One Night Only and that kind of when we tried to feel each other about in the ring and stuff. After that we just clicked, we knew we could make something, so it was a fun story. She is willing to take any and everything, obviously. So she was okay with all of that. She’s a tough girl.”
Departure from Impact Wrestling: “Here’s the thing, I never was fired. I never was released nor was I ever like ‘Hey TNA, F-U’ or I quit or anything like that. My contract expired, it expired this week. I am 100% a free agent. So taking indie bookings. They have sent me a renewal, so I am negotiating but I am exploring other options. So we will see what will happen. As of right now, everything, me and TNA, we’re fine, we’re good. I’m just 100% free and I’m just branching out to see what other options there are out there.”
Option of an NXT run: “I would love to just because they have so many women on their roster. I know I had a match with Charlotte back a couple years ago but it was only a minute long. Man, I just wish I could have a legit match with her, Sasha or even the NXT girls that are there now. There is a lot more competition there than it was years ago. So yeah, I’ll keep that option open.”
Jade also talks wrestling in the UK, inspirations from Gail Kim, upcoming SHIMMER shows, her favorite music and television programs.
