On this day in history:

May 18th, 2008 | At 2008’s Judgment Day, Mickie James put her Women’s Title on the line against not one, but two opponents: Beth Phoenix and Melina. The bout was a rematch of sorts to one that took place at the tail end of 2007, in which Beth successfully defended the title. Beth was just as impressive in this match, at one point hoisting both Melina and Mickie on one shoulder. Mickie managed to retain her belt, though, hitting Melina with the Mickie-T for the win while Beth was indisposed.

What are your memories of this moment?

    The three of them are so good together. Had the company given these three half as much as they gave Michelle, they would’ve been fantastic.

    • I feel like they got just as much, a 6x champ, 5x champ & 4x champ.

      I truly think Melina would have had. They were higher on her than they were on Mickie (who WWE was ready to see her take a backseat to Candice) but her injuries always came at the wrong times and her backstage problems ruined her long-term wise.

      Now nonetheless, Michelle got to be pushed this much also because of Mickie was released, Beth Phoenix injured at the wrong time AND Melina on the other brand (yet ended up being injured).

      I believe that while Michelle’s push was more consistent, they still had quite big push themselves and Mickie’s career in WWE remains better than Michelle’s.

      It’s not the same …it’s similar

  • Don ?

    I will always love the crowd’s reaction to Beth’s Double Backbreaker Rack. But I always wonder what kind of storylines we’d have post-WM24 if Candice never injured herself again. Would Candice be Women’s champion instead of Mickie? Would this match be a F4W including Candice? Would Mickie have turned heel? Ah, the possibilities.

    • I think they were setting her up to win it again when she returned the first time but… things happened. I really wish we got that 4 way tho.

    • Lushluke

      Candice my number 4th ever fave

  • I LOVED when these 3 had a match together, even though I liked the Raw triple threat more this was cool.

  • They created masterpiece under 5 minutes. Ugh, I can only imagine what they could’ve done with 5 more at least.

  • Victor

    Iconic. Probably the best match of that era, i wish they would get 5 more minutes.

  • One of the best matches I’ve ever seen from the divas/women’s era. Is when I start loving melina’s move-set. The three of them were really good in the ring, their chemistry was perfect.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    The way people got up when Beth put both Mickie and Melina in the hold still gives me goosebumps.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Yup, Beth was amazing! The only one i cared about during the diva era… she would do great in today’s division

  • Jesus’s brother

    Mickie trash, Screamo Melina and Goddess Legend Beth Phoenix!

  • A?.

    Loved this match.

  • The Melina and Beth feud was perfect up until Melina got injured because of Victoria’s sloppy nature. They had the Trish/Lita spark.
