Mickie James still has 'psychotic' touch
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun

Even when Mickie James played the role of a psychotic Trish Stratus groupie, doing her best to draw the ire of wrestling fans, she couldn't make all the fans hate her.

Says James: "It was quite neat ... in the middle of a match, the fans would be yelling: 'Let's go Mickie.' Then they'd yell: 'Let's go Trish.' Even though I was the bad (girl), fans were taking to me."

So now that she has gone from devilish to divalicious?

"I'm still psychotic. I'm still a bit of a loose cannon."

James says women's wrestling has changed over the years.

"When I grew up watching women's wrestling, everybody was unique. All the girls now are so beautiful," says James, who twice has been WWE's women's champ. "(Years ago), maybe they weren't all drop-dead gorgeous, but they were unique. They weren't so cookie cutter."

On James' side is the fact that she has good wrestling skills, plus she has the looks -- perhaps enough for an appearance in Playboy?

"Trish never did it ... Lita never did it. I think it's a coin toss (whether I pose)," she says.

James, who spent time wrestling as Alexis Laree, says she has come a long way since then.

"I've been wrestling for eight years now and I'm a lot smarter and less naive," she says. "I like to go out and wrestle ... just wrestle. That's what I much prefer over doing the bra and panties matches." She also is engaged to wrestler Kenny Dykstra (Ken Doane).

LOCKDOWN RESULTS: Here are results from TNA's Lockdown pay-per-view Sunday: Team 3D won the tag titles over The Latin American Xchange; Chris Sabin beat Jay Lethal; Senshi beat Austin Starr; James Storm beat Chris Harris; Robert Roode beat Petey Williams; (The Fallen Angel) Christopher Daniels beat Jerry Lynn; Gail Kim beat Jackie Moore; and Sting earned a world title shot by pinning Abyss after a guitar shot by Jeff Jarrett.

AROUND THE RING: Umaga lost his intercontinental title to Italian homeboy Santino Marella during RAW in Milan on Monday. Okay, we fess up ... he wasn't really a homeboy ... he was really OVW's Boris Alexiev. But it was still a great moment, even if he did need Bobby Lashley's help to win the match ... Deuce and Domino won the tag titles over Paul London and Brian Kendrick on SMACKDOWN!

BAD NEWS SHOW: The Bad News Allen Tribute Supershow will be held May 25 at the Spray Lakes Arena in Cochrane, Alta. It's an incredible card, featuring stars such as Abdullah the Butcher, Samoa Joe, Jim (The Anvil) Neidhart, Tito Santana, Johnny Devine, Goldust and Ottawa's Devon (Hannibal) Nicholson.
