Welcome to another WWE Main Event Redux! Big apologies that this Redux is coming to you a few days late. Things have been so busy right now, all while we’re still trying to play catch up! On this week’s Main Event, Mickie James takes on Emma in what is pretty much a rematch from their last encounter from two weeks ago – minus a backstage Dana Brooke cameo appearance. Let’s get this compare and contrast recap on the road!

Mickie is out first and she’s all smiles as the natural babyface we all know and love! Emma follows suit and a listen over at the commentary table mentions Emma’s recent venting via social media of how she isn’t getting the opportunities she feels she deserves. #GivaEmmaAChance

The referee calls for the bell and the ladies lock up. Mickie takes Emma down with a headlock but Emma is able to reverse with a head scissors. Mickie manages to maneuver out of this and gets to her feet kip-up style. They lock up again, this time its Emma who takes control and tries to wear Mickie down by targeting her left arm. Mickie reverses with an arm drag and covers for a count of one.

Emma sweeps Mickie’s leg and goes for a cover of her own but Mickie kicks out. The women get back to their feet and in the spirit of sportsmanship, Emma extends her hand to Mickie for a friendly handshake. Mickie accepts, they shake but Emma wastes no time getting back to business as she tries to clothesline Mickie who dodges this and hits a neck breaker for a two count.

Emma whips Mickie sternum first to a corner and follows up by dangling Mickie from the top turnbuckle. Emma charges after Mickie but she avoids the attack, sending Emma to the outside ring instead. Mickie kicks Emma in the face and then flies off the ring apron for an effective ariel attack as head to a break!

When we return, Mickie is in full control of the match, taking Emma down with various kicks. She sets Emma up for the Mickie-D-T but Emma is able to escape with an elbow shot to the head. Emma runs the ropes but Mickie hits a flapjack upon arrival, taking Emma down. With Emma on the mat, Mickie goes to the top rope of a turnbuckle and lands her favorite seated senton!

She attempts the pin once again, but Emma kicks out. Things take a turn when Emma is able to slam Mickie face first to the middle turnbuckle and then cover her for the three count win!

Thoughts: This match wasn’t as fun as their previous encounter, so I’m not going to go on and on about the back and forth of it all because there isn’t much to talk about. The fact that they were given less time here doesn’t help either.

I’m a bit iffy about the ending of this match. It was pretty much the same ending to the Five Way Elimination match at Battleground involving Natalya and Charlotte Flair in that it ended so abruptly that you almost missed it. Emma got her redemption but where does she go from here? Will she try to recruit Dana Brooke again since, you know, there hasn’t much a follow-up between them? Or will Dana follow through Titus O’Neil’s advice of finding herself?

Also, where does Mickie go? Will she continue to go back and forth on Main Event with Emma or will they be able to blossom this feud on Raw? Let’s try to book more than women’s feud in the Raw Women’s division WWE.

What did you think of the match? Do you think there will be a Round Three for Mickie and Emma on WWE Main Event? Would you like to see these to in a full fledge feud? Let us know in the comments below!

    I dont know… the division is so boring right now..
    The only thing im looking forward right now is Mandy Rose… I read a rumour where it was said they have big plans for her and she will be full time TV soon..

    • ???

      Really ?
      If that true then this is great because she was doing an excellent job as someone who is very green , it’s weird that she suddenly disappeared it’s been like one year ..? Why she did disappear anyway ?

      • Jouey

        They probably wanted to establish her as a good wrestler, I dont know but they are high on her..

        • ???

          Maybe they wanted to replace Eva by her , if she keeps improving she’ll be great .. I hope she doesn’t disappoint us , because Eva and Lana already did .

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            TBH if they wanted Lana to wrestle then they shouldn’t have called her up when they did, but I prefer her as a manager anyway. I feel like Mandy seeks approval and respect from the other women in WWE unlike how Eva came off. So I hope she makes something out of herself. What we have seen from her is promising. :-)

    • Number One

      So what the hell is taking them so long?!

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      I hope so!! I love me some Mandy!

    WWE doesn’t know how to book Mickie or Emma. The thing is that Mickie is a legend, she truly was one of the biggest women’s wrestlers that has ever competed inside every promotion and WWE. Emma had momentum coming from NXT at a time that women’s wrestlers weren’t given a chance, so they’re both stuck in WWE waiting for a chance but in reality Alexa, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley, Becky, Naomi and even Carmella are given the opportunity to shine because those are the women the crowd and fans care about. Yes Raw has to improve leaps and bounds with their division but I don’t see Mickie or Emma getting those opportunities if they ever promote more than just one rivalry or bout of women’s wrestling.

    • George

      It’s a good step forward to give them matches even if its main event

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      “but in reality Alexa, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley, Becky, Naomi and even Carmella are given the opportunity to shine because those are the women the crowd and fans care about”

      Not Carmella. Fans have never been invested in her. Even after her big feud with Nikki, she couldn’t get over on her own. It’s just WWE that want to push her.

      • Number One

        That’s actually false; Carmella has been getting over on her own since NXT

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          LOL! On NXT, she was with Enzo and Cass and at some point, she started to distance herself from them a little but she wasn’t as over as you would expect her to be. Hence why when she came to SD, they turned her heel because she was NOT over at all. Fans never truly connected with her.

          • A?.

            She was over on NXT, Nia got booed, after being cheered for weeks, because she was just simply facing Carmella. And the crowd loved her. When she came to SD, she just wasn’t clicking because of her cringe promos, which weren’t her fault. But whatever makes you sleep at night, darling

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            And to that I respond as you said : “But whatever makes you sleep at night, darling” :)

          • Number One

            You clearly weren’t watching. Carmella always got great reactions

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            LOL.

      • DayOneISH!

        I agree I don’t see anything special about Carmella that some other girl on the roster can’t do.She had Ellsworth with her and he was drawing heat and still couldn’t that heel reaction she needed.

      • Raleex2

        That’s your opinion. I think she’s doing fine.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Well, I respectfully disagree.

  • George

    Thank you for the link DD <3

  • George

    The match was weird honestly hmm

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    The match wasn’t as long as their first one and it wasn’t as good either. The action was very sloppy overall and they simply didn’t feel into it. Expected more.

  • DayOneISH!
    • ???

      Not sure if that was a shade, but she was cool doing that move lmao

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Not better than Mickie’s victory roll!

    • MK126

      She may have won her matches with a roll up but at least they were never the same roll up LOL

  • Soooooooooo… Is the turnbuckle finish now preserved for women who don’t have an established finisher?? I mean, it’s great that Emma got a victory and all, but the turnbuckle finish makes it a bit underwhelming.

  • Don ?

    Can one of you guys fill in for Stephanie for the NXT redux? ? We’ve missed two good weeks of NXT.

    • Hugo Banks

      I agree.
      I was expecting the Redux for the best promo of Ember’s career.

  • MK126

    The match ending was so anti-climatic. I literally was like “wait that’s all” as it ended. It sucks that Mickie/Emma are regulated to ME but at least they’re being used. Id love to see Fox vs Mickie TBH

  • I just want Fox vs.Mickie for the first time since Hell In A Cell 2009

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Yessss!! I wanna see what a more experienced Fox would do against Mickie.

  • A?.

    Match wasn’t that good, Emma didn’t get any offense and it was short. The ending was really bad, she could have used the EmmaLock.

    • Mickie has hardly submitted to any women at all in her combined WWE and TNA runs, and you want Emma to beat her with submission? A jobber?

      • Come to think of it, I think Asuka is the ONLY person to get Mickie to tap in her combined WWE and TNA runs.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Emma did get offense it was pretty back and forth.

  • GlowTime

    Ending wasn’t good. Thought I did appreciate the Emma chants and the fact commentary referenced that Emma isn’t happy with her current position.

    I hope this can continue to develop on RAW surely a 3hour show can show more than 1 feud?

    • trishlita721

      Maybe it was how the match was booked but yes Emma didn’t look good at all.

  • Michelle

    Emma is a good wrestler but my goodness she’s beyond boring! And I hate that robotic stupid dance routine she does! Just stop! She’s looks ridiculous! Mickie James just seems like she doesn’t fit it much anymore! I was hoping she would have a feud/match with Sasha Charlotte or Alicia fox but I guess not! I haven’t seen one great match with her since her underwhelming return! She’s in great shape and can still go in the ring but something seems off with her matches!

  • These two deserve better. This match wasn’t as good as their first but there’s no reason for them to do anything since barely anyone is watching this show. They need to show what they have on RAW, not Main Event.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    It definitely felt rushed but it wasn’t a horrible match. It was decent for what it was. It was awesome to finally be able to see Mickie wrestle live. What a legend. She even got a decent pop and the crowd was cheering for both her and Emma. They deserve pushes.

    • KatyaMenelli

      I’m so glad to hear that. These are two girls who deserve to be in the title picture, or even a title reign, on either RAW or SD.

      • conan_kun

        What’s a shame when someone like Lana and Tamina are in title picture on Smackdown when Raw can’t book Emma and Mickie in title picture when they’re far more talented.

  • Danny?

    This match was far too short. Absolutely ridiculous

    • conan_kun

      There’s a break after Mickie takes out Emma outside

  • conan_kun

    Hope Raw giving them a spotlight on TV instead of just relying on Alexa, Bayley, Sasha and Nia, especially Bayley may be out for months. Can Emma be badass babyface

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      ugh I love Emma for this. Respecting the woman who came before her.

  • conan_kun
    • ssilva872

      That is because she is an intelligent queen!

    • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

      Oh wow, that’s nice story telling and follow up from last week. Wish commentary had referenced that.
      Somehow I didn’t even make the connection.

  • People can bitch about them not being on RAW, but I’m just glad to see them wrestling on TV of some form. A true fan pays attention to all the shows anyway, and props to them for turning it out.

  • I can’t deal with the fact that this incredible gifted and talented women wrestlers are jobbers on the Raw division, which is so boring with the same feud and matches over and over again; Bayley vs Alexa, or Bayley Vs Nia Botch. Sick of this treatment.

    • ???

      Me too .. I mean WWE want to push who they want only , not for who the people care for .. like they desperately want to push Eva Marie although most people hate her .
      It’s just ridiculous, the problem is with how poorly booked Mickie since the start I mean .. as a luchadora?? Really WWE?? She may went to Raw first to feud with Charlotte or Sasha , but no life for who you call .

  • CuCelchy

    Nice match, trash ending.
    Could’ve been on RAW honestly since it was so short.

  • FlawlessMickie ?

    Good match. I’d love it if we got this Mickie back. I think we’re past the bell bottom Mickie.

  • Aye Mate

    Unfortunately this leaned towards sloppy. The finish wasn’t good at all.

    • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

      I agree. The ending just looked weird and after the good match they had last week it’s a shame they got way less time this week.
