As part of the big SummerSlam promotion, the WWE Divas got the spotlight on MSN.com with Michelle McCool, Mickie James and Gail Kim dishing on aspects of their career. Plus there’s even HQ promo pictures of most of the Divas [sorry Bella fans]!
Let’s start with perhaps the most interesting news, our readers have long been wanting Mickie to turn heel. So what say she on the matter?
If it came to that, I would totally embrace that opportunity. I am very much a perfectionist so if I were to turn heel, I’d want to be the nastiest girls out there, where the people hated me. It’d be a really hard task for me because I am a fan favorite and there has been a lot of hard work on my part to earn their respect. So, even if they hated me, I think they’d still love me.
Contestant number two is former Women’s Champion, Gail Kim who dishes on leaving TNA and rejoining WWE:
MSN: What made you want to return to the WWE?
Kim: It’s the No. 1 company in the world and I had worked for them previously. So I felt like I had a little something to prove when I came back, that I’m a different wrestler now and that I’ve grown so much. Also, I wanted to work with people I had wrestled with in the past, like Mickie James, Beth Phoenix and Melina.
MSN: Is it a different vibe between WWE and TNA?
Kim: Definitely. TNA is smaller. WWE is a bigger production and you get many more fans. It’s so exciting to perform in front of so many people. It is what we thrive off of.
And finally, contestant number three Michelle McCool discusses the history she’s made:
I am constantly setting goals for myself. I wanted to become a Diva. I wanted to work WrestleMania. And I wanted to be champion. And I have accomplished all of those things. I don’t think it has hit me that in 50, 100 years from now, my name will be listed among those that held the titles. No one can take that away from me.
Michelle also adds that the Divas always pack bikinis
in case Vince decides he needs a release.
Anyway, check out the HQ promo pics below including one I don’t think we’ve seen of Melina before [gawjus!]:
The Good: Most of them look good; Alicia, Beth, Eve, Gail, Katie, Layla, Maria and Maryse. I’m totally loving that shot of Melina, I certaintly haven’t seen it before. My favourite picture of the bunch is Michelle’s, I’ve always loved that promo of her — she looks sort of like Jordana Brewster.
The Bad: Jillian, Kelly and Tiffany look ‘eh’. Natalya & Rosa seem to be suffering from a bad camera angle. But Mickie’s pose looks really uncomfortable, stiff and her face looks slightly constipated.
