Magnus recently spoke with Wade Killer on a recent PWTorch Livecast about Mickie James challenging Asuka for the NXT Women’s Title at this Saturday’s NXT Takeover: Tonto special. Here are the highlights.
On James facing Asuka:
“Obviously, she is excited about it,” he said. “She is incredibly proud of her WWE career, as she should be, and she always held on to a hope that she would have a chance to at least return. She always said she wanted to finish her career there. I’m not trying to imply that’s what she’s doing at this point. She’s very glad and I’m very pleased and honored she’s been able to reestablish her relationship there. Obviously it’s the big time, man. It’s the business. I know that she and Asuka are going to tear the house down,” Aldis said. “Asuka’s fantastic. Mickey, she can work with anyone. But I think this particular match-up is very good for her style because she sells so well and she has such great movement. She’s a great babyface. It’ll be a great.”
On James possibly working on the main roster:
“I feel like once they see what she does and, more importantly, see the fan reaction, which I think is going to be huge, I’d be very surprised if it doesn’t lead to more. Clearly, I’m not the right guy to ask because I don’t have a very good handle on what they’re thinking and what they want.”
