— World Wrestling Entertainment officials are said to be down on former Divas champion Mickie James. According to a source within the company, recent weight gain and work rate are the main problems. While she’s arguably still gorgeous and in great shape, she had put on some weight (mostly visible in her abs & lower body) and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Additionally, the quality of her matches has been sliding and she is no longer seen as the “reliable hand” that she once was. There have been various Internet reports this week that James is frustrated with the way she’s been booked as of late, which seems to jive with our source’s findings.
