A Night To Remember: "During the Piggie James send-off, LayCool was cutting a promo. Then Maria came, she came, and then she cut a promo. I remember that she almost made me break character. We were talking about how dumb Maria was, or something like that, and Mickie flew off the cuff and said something about: 'oh, really? We all saw 'Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?,' mmmhmm!' -- I'm looking at her like: oh, gosh! I wanted to break character so bad! As soon as we got backstage I told her that she almost got me -- almost busted out laughing!"
Vince's Angels: "Vince ended up loving the LayCool character as a result of that storyline. That's kind of how things kind of kept happening for us. But, like I said: I give credit to Mickie James. She was fighting with us to get TV time, to get pay-per-view matches, to raise the bar... not many people will always do that. But she did, and I will forever be grateful for that."
Working With Mickie: "We've pulled off some really good matches together. We always kinda clicked; worked well together. That always makes it fun inside the ring when you know you can work with somebody. You can fly off the cuff while you're in there; you can improvise. We had some fun. Plus, her finisher was always one of my most fun ones to take! It was hard and trying at times, but was fun. She was a true professional and always wanted to do business -- what was best for the business."
Stealing The Show: "Something to add: the night we smashed cake in Mickie's face, during her send-off... she was just brilliant on her response! That was the point where LayCool finally got to Mickie James, she just looked humiliated as she ran off in tears. Nobody else could have done that the way she did it. As we all came backstage -- and very, very rarely does this happen -- Vince, Michael Hayes, and everybody in the gorilla position were standing up and clapping saying: 'the girls just stole the show.' That was a very, very special moment. I give her all the props in the world. So, thanks Mickie if you hear this -- I really, really appreciate you!"
