WWE posted a new exclusive interview with Mickie James that is now available on dot com. In it, Mickie discussed the opportunity to face Asuka for the WWE NXT Women’s Championship at this month’s WWE NXT TakeOver: Toronto pay-per-view:
I was sitting in the airport in Orlando, Florida, on my way to the UK, where I've been for almost a month now. I got the call from WWE and they asked me if I was interested. I know who Asuka is, I've seen her work in Japan and NXT. She is incredibly talented. It's cool to see someone come up and make an impact. I think for her, it's even harder, because there's the language barrier. But she's this mystical kind of person.
For them to even consider me to come back and face her and, hopefully, tear the house down, is pretty awesome. It made me feel like a million bucks. I want to go in there and take it to the next level and give the people everything that they want and more.

We heard WWE wanted Trish Stratus to come back and do the match but that Trish was unable because she is pregnant. WWE NXT TakeOver: Toronto featuring James vs. Asuka for the WWE NXT Women's Championship will take place on November 19, 2016 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
