WWE Wrestlers Expect a Popular Diva To Leave

As an ongoing WWE storyline “rib” appeared connected to past stories of lockerroom heat, few in the media truly considered the fact that the subject of the mockery could be preparing to leave the company.

But according to, that WWE individual could indeed leave when her contract expires. The belief among wrestlers right now is that Mickie James, who has had her weight mocked via the “Piggy James” gag on television in recent weeks, will leave when her contract ends so that she can get fully behind her music career.

The story, which claims that WWE is treating the Diva poorly on television as a “send-off” of sorts, is not confirmed–those skeptical of the idea that James is leaving can point to Jim Ross, who WWE consistently mocks despite viewing as a truly valuable part of the company. The entire “Piggy James” stunt could, after all, simply have been designed to address James’ weight issue.

Nonetheless, if the F4W report is true, the lockerroom does expect Mickie to part ways at the expiration of her contract.
