Tonight at TLC, Alexa Bliss retained the Raw Women’s Championship against her latest challenger in Mickie James.

Throughout the match, Alexa targeted Mickie’s left arm – wrenching, striking and stomping over it. Mickie held her own and managed to fight Alexa off from the corner with a kick to the face, an elbow strike and head scissors from the corner.

When both Superstars met in the middle of the ring, they began trading blows until their strikes simultaneously laid each other out. As the women got back to their feet, Mickie began setting Alexa up for the Mickie-DDT but Alexa was able to escape it.

The Champion then tried to connect a Snap DDT but the challenger was able to reverse this into a pin cover for a near three count.

After kicking out from a Sunset flip and connecting a Flapjack, Mickie climbed the top rope but Alexa knocked her off the turnbuckle, causing Mickie to land on her bad shoulder. Alexa tried to capitalize with a Twisted Bliss but Mickie managed to roll out of harms way. Mickie then climbed the top rope for a second time to hit a dropkick for a two count.

In the end, Alexa was able pull Mickie headfirst to the second turnbuckle and connect a Snap DDT for the three count to retain the Raw Women’s Championship.

In a post match interview, an emotional Mickie thanked the WWE Universe for their continued support and promised to find her way back to another Women’s Championship match.

What did you think of the match?

  • Parasite

    I love Mickie, but i think at the end the right person won..

    • DivaFactz

      You right, the RIGHT person won to be fed to Asuka. Just like that fatal 5 way match that nobody really wanted to win lmaoo

      • Parasite

        Exactly, like i said before Asuka vs Bliss is main event shit $$$

        • DivaFactz

          Asuka vs Bliss is an insult to Asuka lmao.. she goes from Bayley to Mickie to Ember to Alexa lmaoo.. Guess what goes up must come down.

          • Parasite

            If you say so

          • True. I can’t with these delusional Alexa fans.

          • That’s like 400 steps down too.

          • Welchy

            You sound salty lmao
            She literally wrestled Nia & Dana on PPV & you acting like this a big deal? Sit ya ass down.

          • Maddox

            Bliss is the champ, it’s a step up

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    Bitch BYEEEEE

  • Says Bayley is weak and can’t get extreme – Bayley doesn’t use the kendo and Alexa beats her.
    Says Sasha never successfully defended the title and never will – beats her as well.
    Says Mickie is old and past her prime – beats Mickie too.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if she takes Asuka’s streak away too. The match was good.

    • Gerg

      sigh i fear the Basic DDT

      • Seraphina Rosenhart

        Well, Lita, Maryse, and many other have used it as a finisher, so it’s not unheard of.

        • Gerg

          True, I enjoyed the way they’ve performed the DDT. IMO, Bliss’s DDT looks like lazy. Her floatover DDT on Natalya at Wrestlemania should be her version but I understand she’s going for the quick, out of nowhere move

        • Eliseo Reyes

          It’s all about who’s executing and how it’s being executed. For Example, Lita’s DDT looks vicious and brutal because she uses the left leg to add speed to the DDT. Maryse DDT looks alright too, and she makes it her own by adding her hair to the finisher, she uses her upper body to bend to the frontal position and when she swings back, it makes the DDT look nasty (good). Alexa, iono, i like the chick and all, but her execution of the DDT is very poor. However tonight, Mickie James made that finisher look like a million bucks.

    • Randall

      Honestly don’t want to see Asuka run through the entire raw division week after week!! That will get tiring after a while. It works for NXT but not sure it will work for Raw or Smackdown. We shall see!

      • It will definitely get boring, because Alexa has done it and what good will it be once Asuka continues it? At least the matches will be better.

        • Randall

          Alexa wins PPV matches not every TV match…but I have a feeling Asuka is going to be winning every damn week on Raw! Unless she’s like Brock learner and appears every once in a while.

          • Either way we’re gonna go from one strongly booked person to another, and it’s boring.

          • Izzy4lw

            The problem is that there’s only one strongly booked person. In a 7 woman division. By the time Asuka gets the title, nobody will be left with the credibility to beat her

          • Exactly. Alexa beats everyone, Asuka beats Alexa. What’s the point in the end? Waiting for the call ups would be a shame as it would basically be a reversed Asuka story. On NXT we waited for her to move up so she can get “real challengers” and now that she’s here it looks like we’ll have to wait for NXT women to come and beat her. That’s unless someone from SD arrives.

          • Izzy4lw

            WWE is so transparent. Asuka will beat Alexa and have a stranglehold on the division until she beats Sasha or Nia at WM… then a shake up will happen and Charlotte will go to Raw.

          • That sounds very realistic.

          • ssilva872

            This will happen for sure.

            I just hope they have a great matches and hopefully some side feuds during this time.

          • Nikolas Dombkowski

            BUT, she dominated all the established NXT talent, so we would be waiting a while if that was the case.

          • Raleex2

            That would be for the better. Asuka should remain a special attraction.

        • Raleex2

          I don’t think so. Asuka has lots to offer and her offence continously changes, just imagine how amazing a match between her and Sasha Banks could be.

    • Wicked Bliss

      That match was decent. Alexa shouldve cheated. She already won using that strategy against Bayley. But I think its not yet the end of Mickie vs Alexa so there is still chance Mickie will win it from her.

      • Nah, that was a clean win. I doubt they can do anything to follow it up but we’ll see.

        • NY

          It’s technically not clean of you’re cheating… to each their own. ?

        • ?too litty?

          It was a cheap victory because the ref was pulling Mickie off of Alexa therefor the ref costed her the match.

      • NY

        She did cheat, she pretended she was injured and the ref held Mickie back and then Alexa did the same move Lita did; throw Mickie into the turnbuckle and DDT MJ. Although I guess Lita’s DDT was alot more brutal looking for whatever reason.

        This was a good match too though, I loved the slapping sequence and the kip up moves? Mickie was on fire and so was Alexa. Great work ladies.

        • Wicked Bliss

          Ohh now I get it wasnt paying full attention to the match. Maybe Mickie could get another shot.

          • NY

            Yea my friend missed it too, but Alexa faked an injury and then drove Mickie hard into the turnbuckle and DDT for the win. It was a typical heel move, but effective!?

          • ?too litty?

            And the ref was pulling Mickie off of Alexa…

        • Eliseo Reyes

          The thing with Lita’s DDT is that is very unique. The impact that the move does is brutal, it looks brutal, but it also depends on who sells it. DDT’s are all about who is selling it, and how it is executed. I’m not sure why Alexa’s DDT looks very weak, but tonight it looked brutal because Mickie Sold it like a champ. Mickie is the queen of selling DDT’s.

    • Jaded

      So you wanted Mickie who’s had her time to win over new talents?

      • NY

        Like Randy Orton, Cena, Triple H, Undertaker, Rock, and many others… Your point withers away quickly. Mickie is simply a superior grappler and can still go, so why not? Ivory, Victoria and even Sable were older and getting opportunities, she is but a number in the wrestling business. Just ask Hogan and Ric Flair. Sure they’ve got hip replacements and in bad shape today, but still ask them. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/102361f27c27b324489418a1e0dfed4aa91b4b3ced14889eb649cb814f47741d.gif

        • Jaded

          All those people you mentioned are draws ,Mickie was not and still isn’t.

          • NY

            Ya because she isn’t invested in, Orton is hardly a draw to me anyway…snoozefest central.Deal with it.

        • Raleex2

          Sadly this ain’t true in WWE. You just mentioned a bunch of jobbers by the end of their careers. Lisa Marie Varon which called herself Tara in TNA became had a successful run in other promotion but not in WWE. Sable and now Mickie are a rare exception of the rule, Sable was only a one time champion and was brought back just because she was extremely sexy.

          • NY

            The guys aren’t jobbers and my point is Victoria wasn’t a jobber until later on and Ivory was Damn near 40 and won 2 women’s titles, so my point stands clear.

      • Mickie hasn’t done anything in WWE for 7 years. This is new era and new opportunities.

    • Jo9834

      Alexa will be pushed to the moon and back until she retires. I have a feeling she won’t defeat Asuka though, that would be way too unbelievable.

      This was probably her 3rd best match (bar her match with Bayley on NXT, and Great Balls of Fire with Sasha).

      I feel for Mickie but man she has not missed a step in the ring, she is so crisp, clean and quick!. I hope she gets the title, but theres no way they will let anyone bar Charlotte or Alexa take Trish’s title.

      • Eliseo Reyes

        Well even if she tied with trish strauts for being 7x WWE Women’s Champion that’s how far it would get With Mickie James. I don’t think Mickie will be the first 8x WWE Women’s Champion. At this point, that’s what will matter after Trish’s reign gets tied with someone else.

    • Troy Smith

      I’ve been saying this for months. Within 1 year, Alexa will pin Asuka.

    • Raleex2

      I believe Alexa is kind of the new favorite. I don’t like her as a performer… but well I don’t even care because I been not watching wrestling since Sasha lost to her and all I wanted to see was Asuka’s debut.

  • DivaFactz

    Based on the interview at the end, I can see Mickie James facing Asuka for the women’s title down the line and Mickie actually winning… Just like Beth Phoenix who was undefeated, Mickie kept losing against her but then in the end she finally defeated Beth Phoenix.

    • GEO

      If Mickie couldn’t beat Alexa, you think she has a chance to defeat Asuka?

      • DivaFactz

        Mickie James defeated Trish, Lita, Beth, Jazz, Victoria and Gail but somehow Jillian Hall, the biggest jobber in wwe history beat her TWICE! Lmao so yes! Mickie has a chance.

        • Corey Anderson

          Yassssss.

        • Eliseo Reyes

          Mickie is the only woman who has defeated a herd of Golden Era Women: All that you listed including Torrie Wilson as well.

          • NY

            Lol @ herd. That made me laugh out loud, but you’re 100% right and also a herd of TNA women. Mickie James is a beast!

  • conan_kun

    When will we see Alexa destroys Asuka with mic and do “This Is Your Life, Asuka” segment or like Jinder doing racist segment to Nakamura.

  • Wicked Bliss

    Mickie does not get a good reaction during her entrances… But she does during her matches which is more important. This match highlights Mickie she shouldve won.

    • sleeper11

      she needs a new theme.

  • It was an ok match. Asuka vs. Emma was the best of the 3 women’s matches, then Fox vs. Sasha, then this one. I’m okay with Bliss retaining, I just wish she would’ve won via Twisted Bliss

  • willh

    I’m just so tired of seeing Alexa Botch on my screen….
    She’s not deserving of even half of the accolades she has already. She’s been on the main roster only a year and is a 4x champion….
    I’m fed the fuck up.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/61a9fc78f77848d2cf139cc23220f2f5de329a2f3de5fc7244b7734d0a7b79f5.gif

  • Mase Will

    This is getting BORING. The world knows Alexa lacks the wrestling skills yet WWE has her looking as if she’s some type of strong champion. I do like Alexa, but honey your time is up. You’re excellent at speaking on the mic but THAT IS ALL. Mickie James winning this championship meant so much. This championship was going to represent the women before Mickie. This title was going to represent a veteran holding it to a jungle full of new girls. I had so much expectation to watch Mickie succeed. I’m so disappointed and heartbroken.

  • Mase Will

    I grew up watching Mickie James take the torch from Trish and Lita. I remember those days when Mickie couldn’t defeat Beth Phoenix and after she won she gave a speech about never giving up and never quitting. I will never forget those words. Fast forward 10 years later and WWE SHOULD be treating Mickie as royalty. They should be putting Mickie above the rest but no she’s below someone like Alexa Bliss.

    • Malcolm James

      IT A DAMN TRAGEDY

    • Jaded

      She should never have returned

  • Mase Will

    Tying Trish’s record for most championships would be such an honor and I could go on about Mickie’s accolades but everyone here knows what she brings to the table. I don’t need to remind anyone. Watching Mickie cry broke my entire heart.

    • Eliseo Reyes

      Well Mickie is the only Woman in WWE to compete for every Women’s Championship offered by the Company: WWE Women’s Championship Retro (56-10), WWE Divas Championship, WWE NXT Women’s Championship, WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship, and WWE RAW Women’s Championship. That’s a huge accolade, and i don’t think anyone will be able to touch that.

  • willh

    Mickie DID NOT deserve to lose to Alexa OF ALL PEOPLE. Mickie was handed the torch after Trish and Lita left. She carried the Divas division from ’07-’10. She has earned her accolades and is a future HOF. She is the only woman on the roster right now who is worthy of tying Trish’s record. Mickie winning this title meant so much and WWE dropped the ball on this one.

    • It

      Actually she isn’t! The 4HW, Alexa and Asuka are the ones who deserve to surpass

      • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

        Mickie does also not just them

      • Ryan Stratus

        No, Mickie deserves it.

    • Mase Will

      I’m so disappointed. I’m lost for words. I wanted to see Mickie walk out as champion and just celebrate my wrestling Idol be successful.

      • Eliseo Reyes

        Patience, i think Mickie Will get a chance at being Women’s Champion again. If it’s not somewhere during her run, then it will be mostly for her reitrement match.

    • Maddox

      And she left for a rival company ?

      • KatyaMenelli

        she got released.

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    I’m just sad…

    Like the fan in me came out tonight. Why hype up Mickie’s 7th reign like that and not have her win…

  • I can’t stand this DDT anymore. I didn’t think anyone could have a worse finisher than the Bayley-to-belly, but here is Alexa, defeating opponents with the most basic, unspectacular and less exciting DDT ever. It’s even more infuriating knowing a DDT is an easily modified move. It wouldn’t take much to add something to make it look more effective. At this point, I’ll take anything. Or, ya know, she could also use the other finishing move that she uses when she gets brave enough to climb to the top rope….

    The match was better than I expected, save for the abrupt finish. All in all, I enjoyed it.

    • KingsPromise

      In the immortal words of Jake the Snake, Alexa needs to get with Cameron on how to make that basic ass DDT fierce lmao

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    That was a good match. That last spot with the diving dropkick or whatever was iffy though. Alexa was too far away, making the move look messy. I wasn’t happy that Alexa retained but I look forward to Asuka kicking her head off and winning the title now.

  • ???

    I don’t mind Mickie loses now and winning it later , but what I’m afraid of is that they’ll just ignore their feud and never let Mickie be in the title picture again .

  • Izzy4lw

    Mickie seems to have learned how to carry less talented women which is always a good thing since I always said her only weakness in the ring was that unlike Beth or Michelle, Mickie James was not a ring general. But tonight she gave us a good match and sold like her life depended on it.

    I also noticed that Alexa is getting better in the ring. Slowly but surely, she’s becoming more comfortable in ring, which is a positive because she isn’t stagnating. The issue is still the same; her progress in the ring isn’t her pulling ahead of the pack; it’s her catching up, and it’s painful to watch women bring their skills down to keep up with her.

    The psychology of the Match was my biggest gripe. Why work her arm the entire time when mickies most dangerous asset is her legs? Why work her arm when your finishers don’t target the arm? Whyyyyyyyy. I feel like she learns moves and then just throws them into a match with no rhyme or reason. Alexa needs a lesson in ring psychology, and Mickie should have tried to bring that up.

    At this point, all the baby faces have been destroyed by the Blisspocalypse, so I suppose Asuka is next in line to go after the title which will give us something fresh, so at least there’s that.

    Silver linings.

    • Jaded

      The match was blah though

    • KingsPromise

      Is Asuka winning the title straight out of the gate fresh though? She was already champion for 300 years.

      • Izzy4lw

        I mean the option is to put the title on Asuka who was champion in NXT for 300 years but who has fresh opponents on RAW, or keep the title on Alexa who has been champion for 258 years and has run through the entire division so any ‘feud’ except for one with Asuka would be stale af.

    • DJ #FilipinoPride

      I see the reasoning behind the targeting of the arm as a way to prevent Mickie from hooking Alexa’s head in it for the MickieDT, though focusing on the leg would have made more sense with the Mick Kick and MJ’s kick variations.

      • Izzy4lw

        See I thought that too initially, but then I remembered that she only targeted one arm, and Mickie only needs one to hit her MickieDT, which kind of destroyed that thought process. It just didn’t make sense to me from a psychology perspective to spend all mach working on someone’s arm when Mickie’s entire arsenal is kick based and then to finish the match with a DDT and not a finisher that exploits the weakened arm (or even a sequence in which Mickie does get put in an arm based submission) just missed the mark for me.

  • NY

    You know, Alexa is getting alot of hate also because Mickie is beloved- Mickie has consistently been awesome and remains beautiful similar to Gail Kim. I think Gail Kim should retire against Asuka, imagine that match!? ?

    We gotta respect and show love to Bliss too.

    Back to the match , it was a good match, better than I expected from Alexa to be honest, but ultimately the fanboy in me just is gut wrenched that MJ lost. We’re crying with her. Damn shame…im cutting onions too. I respect Alexa too though…lets not hate her for being awesome too, she just..needed to bow out here …https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d856e07cdc0a6d0d28b05e732b51a7b9d56914ecc7166a5942fee6c9a9980bdd.gif

    Y’all take wwe way to seriously! All of this damn complaining! It’s crazy! I don’t come on here often but it seems like none of y’all are satisfied with anything wwe does. Just like everyone said Nattie deserves another title run. She’s got it now and of course everyone is bored with her now! I can’t with this diva dirt page. I love women’s wrestling but this website clearly shows how much y’all complain about the simplist stuff.

    • Winter

      So get away from here and save yourself the disgust, it’s very simple!

      • Randall

        Lmfao gladly! I don’t need to sit behind a keyboard and complain about the pettiest shit!!!

        • Winter

          That’s good for you!

          • Randall

            Sure is…

    • NY

      I’m glad Nattie is Champion, but she’s always been vanilla to me…though she’s a hell of a wrestler , but they should give her a strong mouthpiece like Lana or even Heyman or Cornette, someone to give the woman more flavor.

      And if WWE had any sense, they should’ve given Foxy a new theme and a win and MJ her 7th title! No one is gonna take Alexa beating or even being a threat to Asuka seriously… or maybe she will, but I mean damn…Vince or whomever is hard on for Alexa needs to chill.

    • ???

      Speaking as myself , I said that Nattie deserves a title reign and I’m happy that she finally won it and yes I said her reign is boring but I only blame the booking wise of the women .

      Same as Naomi and Alexa , Naomi is long overdue and deserves when won the title before but her booking was horrible and barely defended her title.. Alexa deserves it but don’t you think it’s too damn early to give her FOUR TITLE REIGNS in less than one year ? Wouldn’t that ruin the excitement of her winning the title later on her career and make her reigns more creditable and important? Think about it .

      • Randall

        Yes it was definitely it was too early for her to 4 title reigns within a year. Same with Charlotte and Sasha. I wish all of their reigns were a little spaced out like how they used to do it back in the day! Before we know Sasha and Charlotte will be a 10 time champion before they leave wwe.

        • ???

          The booking in NXT is so different than the MR , Alexa was mid carder back then but once she arrived on the MR she became top star all of sudden . She had to be mid carder to get over first and after one year they can let her be a top star but noooo Vince HAS to ruin everything good .

          • Maddox

            You guys are really fickle, everyone loved her when she came up and praised Smackdown for giving everyone equal opportunities ujulike Raw which was dominated by the horsewomen

    • eversogood94

      Honestly, no one will ever be satisfied because WWE isn’t as good as it was 10 years ago. WWE will be out of business come 2019 tbh

    • KatyaMenelli

      this is NOT the simplest stuff. There was so much meaning going into this match and WWE once again fucks it up. It was so damn easy.

  • Winter

    God lord just give me a new champon and take Alexa away of the title picture, that’s all I ask. I’m not even gonna say that I don’t like Alexa, nobody should be champion for more than a year making her opponents look like a joke. Enough is enough.

    • ???

      Agree! In that way , they didn’t only burried the other women but Alexa too and people will turn on her one day because she became boring !

      • Winter

        She’s already boring and a lot of people are turning on her.

        • ???

          Yes I can that they just “started” to turn on her except pervert straight guys ..

          • Maddox

            Even little girls love Alexa, just on this site that everyone bitches about her

    • Welchy

      How exactly did Mickie come off looking like a joke?

      • Winter

        Oh I don’t want to argue with any Alexa fan right now, thank you.

        • Welchy

          Then stfu, you welcome.

  • Undisputed

    Great performance by both women! As Dave Meltzer pointed out, the match really told a story. Loved Alexa twisting Mickie’s arm to avoid the MickieDT. Great selling by Mickie throughout (particularly at the finish). Creative offense by Alexa to target the arm. Quality sequence with both women dodging each other’s blows until a double knockout. Also loved the hair-pulling to kip up sequence.

    Wish the feud would continue, as these two seem to have great chemistry on the mic and in the ring.

  • Mark?

    I haven’t been this sad about a result in literally years… Mickie was apart of my childhood. I was really invested in this match. This is just really sad. Fuck Alexa!

    • A?.

      Calm down dumb bitch, this is not Alexa’s fault.

      • Mark?

        Shut up bitch. Alexa is not even good enough to wipe Mickie’s ass after a big shit!

        • A?.

          You’re not even seeing my point, I never said Alexa was good but go off, you’re extremely stupid.

            Okay Emma fan, I’ll let you know when I need your flop opinion. Bah Felicia xoxoxox

            Omg you’re so dumb I’m screaming, those weak “drags”. So silly!

      Well your childhood is gone, now let’s face adulthood together

  • Ryan Stratus

    This match made me feel like a kid all over again. Glued to my tv screen hoping and praying Mickie would come out on top. I seriously had tears in my eyes this whole match and the interview after the match told me Mickie is really grateful for the opportunity. This is only the beginning guys! Vince wont bury our girl!

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      He won’t? Um.. how long have you been watching? Lol

      • Ryan Stratus

        Years. Mickie expressed her relationship with Vince during her acceptance speech at the NAMA. ????

      • Ryan Stratus

        Tonight also proves my point ???

  • Damn!

    A legend like Mickie does not deserve to lose to a pathetic DDT…..Ending the match with the Twisted Bliss would’ve been better.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Alexa , Nia , Bayley , Sasha and Asuka vs Charlotte, Becky , Naomi , nattie and Carmella at SS wow raw is gonna win easy

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    Even the ref’s face in the article photo is serving shade. LOL.

    • Women’s Revolution

      Like Alexa Bliss?!? WTF?!? Lol

      He’s the reason Mickie lost ?

    • KatyaMenelli

      LOL Right! Like the damn “Damn, really!?” face.

  • Women’s Revolution

    I’d been satisfied for a temporary title hold from Mickie James ? She deserves some credibility for being a pioneer in this Women’s Division.

    The New Era Women are great but they’re overexposed especially 3/4 Horsewomen, Bliss,

  • Donny Donny ?

    I don’t mean to sound vulgar but I’m sure all the little Bliss fanboys are going to bust all kinds of nuts to Mickie slapping Alexa’s ass. ?

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Sad that it got the biggest pop of the match ?

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Women used to rip others clothes off and now we complain about a butt slap really? It’s supposed to be a mind game and embarrassing

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          I’m not complaining about it happening, I’m saying it’s sad that it got the biggest pop of the match. Says a lot about the quality of the rest of the match.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Most people are priasing the match

      • Donny Donny ?

        I was surprised at the “One More Time!” chants too.

    • Jo9834

      That actually shocked me, its so not PG in the slightest it seems that we now know why Vince is so hight on Alexa (her ass). It was probably his Milf (Mickie) fantasy hence the whole feud.

  • Welchy

    Alexa retained.
    Mickie didn’t look weak in the end.
    & the match was good.

    Y’all can have these tissues to cry about it for later

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    Alexa sis needs to get it together with her bumping, it´s becoming way too obvious that she tries to avoid taking hard bumps. Otherwise good match, but was really rooting for Mickie.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Don’t get the love for this match at ALL. I don’t like Bliss, but even I can admit she’s had far better matches than this. This was just a slug fest for the most part. Not my cup of tea. Granted I was never a fan of the Trish/Mickie matches either (or many other Mickie matches for that matter). Though I was still hoping Mickie would pull out the win just for the sake of something interesting/different.

    • Maddox

      Even against Gail? You

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        Her matches with Gail in TNA were certainly some of her cleanest/crispest I’ll say that.

        • Maddox

          So safe to say Gail is the better wrestler?

  • Mark?

    You guys I just got done watching the match. It was really good. I’d say Alexa’s best match. And it felt like watching a big Women’s Championship match from the McCool, Melina, Mickie, Beth days. It was super good. The story-telling and the way the match was set-up definitely had Mickie’s finger in it. It was so good. I hope WWE doesn’t just drop the ball on Mickie now.

    • Welchy

      Oop

  • Kurt

    To me the best match of the night hands down. Millie showed her amazing skills, Alexa was finally able to look like she can wrestle and the back and forth was well done. The only downside is that movie didn’t win, but I hope they continue this feud. The mickie vs asuka is a great match to have a feud over since they had amazing chemistry with their match

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Come thru millie

      • Jo9834

        I honestly stan for Millie , when will anyones fave match her iconicness in the ring!

  • sleeper11

    I don’t know why they’ve given AJ Lee’s booking to Alexa. It didn’t accomplish anything back then and it’s not accomplishing anything right now. If their goal was to bury the entire division just for one person then congrats they’ve succeeded. And now Asuka is gonna serve Paige and win the title almost immediately. The writers have no creativity. The only ones enjoying themselves are Alexa fans, who are just terrible people to interact with, especially on twitter. Raw’s booking is just so predictable and it has been for years. I don’t think we’ll ever have an underrated talent hold the Raw women’s title. If you look at the title history, it’s only privileged women of the modern era. Women like Nia, Emma, Alicia, and Mickie are never gonna hold it. They’re all wasting their time. I’m just tired. I have no desire to see Asuka vs. Alexa.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I’m starting to wonder if Steph is a big fan of Alexa. She’s being booked as if she’s Stephanie herself..

      • sleeper11

        Steph doesn’t give a shit about the women, she’s a fake feminist. It’s more clear that they don’t hire new people to the RAW creative team and just keep using the same idiots.

        • Jaded

          I don’t think she gives a shit about anyone either.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Right! only one crowd is enjoying this booking and it sucks. And I’m not even going to bring up those racist ass Alexa fans on Twitter. Ugh.

  • wysna

    I seriously don’t like that DDT finisher of Alexa. She’s not the best wrestler in the roster right now but damn it she is athletic as hell. She can AND SHOULD do better. Heck that sunset flip powerbomb and that handspring to knees looks a lot better and more brutal than that DDT or that flopping fish off the top rope move of hers.

    • Her actual wrestling wasn’t bad, it was her bumping and selling that was sloppy, and did Mickie no favors. I’m still pressed about Alexa dodging that Thesz press.

  • sleeper11

    “Alexa vs. Asuka is money”

    this has to be a joke. If Alexa vs. Sasha wasn’t money what makes you think Alexa vs. Asuka will be? Asuka doesn’t have mic skills. What is gonna Alexa gonna do? Make jokes about her eyes and the fact that she can’t speak english? Actually, that seems realistic considering the creative team we’re dealing with.

    • D. #ILoveMelina

      This actually made me laugh i canna

    • Buffyrocks

      But Asuka does have mic skills, and good ones at that. Don’t confuse her mic skills with the fact that English is her second language.

      • Winter

        So you want her speaking japanese? LOL

        • Buffyrocks

          Lol, no! Though, to be fair, her Japanese promos seem to be great with the little Japanese I know (I also had someone who is fluent listen and they thought she was great, too). But, in Asuka’s limited English, everyone is always cheering for her when she screams her lines. Basically, Asuka is able to command the crowd even with her limited English. They pay attention to her, and the same can’t be said for everyone. Imagine how much better she will get the more English she learns!

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Alexa vs Sasha was money too. The fact that they didn’t fully take advantage of it is another matter.

      • sleeper11

        and what makes you think they will take advantage of Asuka vs. Alexa? Alexa vs. Sasha was their one money feud and they failed. So all these claims that Alexa vs. Asuka will be money is a joke.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Did I say they will? That they take advantage of it or not is another matter in both cases but it doesn’t change from the fact that both are/were money matches/feuds on paper.

    • ssilva872

      Love the shade towards the writers..

      Would for sure happen on SD…. O_o

    • The Wicked Bitch

      Alexa vs Sasha was MONEY tf

    • It

      Alexa vs Sasha was money loooool if WWE booked the feud correctly it would be lit af

  • Buffyrocks

    Like, I am kind of interested to see how this potential Asuka vs Bliss feud turns out, because as it stands now, Asuka is just on a whole different level than Bliss. Asuka is so fast and crisp, and she hits HARD. Bliss is not terrible in the ring, but Asuka is just hands down one of the best wrestlers in the entire company. But I feel it does Bliss no good to have her get squashed by Asuka right away either, but no way in hell is Bliss going to be the one to end her streak. Like, it is cute to make jokes about it, but that is just not going to happen.

    I’m excited to see Asuka vs Sasha/Charlotte/Natalya/Becky/Naomi, and for her to again go up against Bayley and Nia (and Emma again!).

  • Mase Will

    Asuka vs Alexa is a joke written on paper. First of all, Asuka has so many abilities and is also very quick and CAN wrestle. Alexa is , well.. Alexa. Ain’t nobody wanna see this .. Mickie vs Asuka better

  • BC

    Asuka doesn’t need to chase the title yet. She should feud with the other girls first before going for Alexa.

    I want Mickie/Alexa to continue. :/

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Thay was good I thought mickie was gonna win I’m so deluded

  • Dreignz

    I love Alexa but I hate her booking, she’s too strong, she’s so little, she would be more credible as a coward champion that cheat often, her in-ring should be more athletic like on NXT. Oh and I can’t with this DDT, I want her to do the Torrie Wilson DDT

  • E-Force

    Alexa looked believable and strong in that ring. Congrats Mickie, queen mother

  • Moan of ‘Licia

    Mickie should’ve won. All I’m gonna say here.

  • -V

    Trash.

    • Welchy

      Yo mama bitch

  • ?too litty?

    Honestly after Alexa losses the title she needs to disappear from TV for a while and go to developmental and critique and improve her in ring ability then after like a year or close to a year, she can make her grand return. I am an Alexa stan, but there is no denying she isn’t the greatest in the ring. She has the mic work, facial expression, character development, and reaction, she just needs to work on her in-ring ability if she improves massively, she could be the TOTAL PACKAGE! I’m going to need Alexa’s feud with Mickie to be far from over, I need Mickie to be the one to dethrone the goddess and let it be known she isn’t some “old lady, who past her prime.” Then, I need her to have a feud with either Alicia, Nia, Sasha, Bayley, or Emma before facing Asuka to ultimately lose. I need Mickie to at least have a feud with two people (not including Alexa) before facing Asuka, so she at least looks like a credible contender to beat Asuka. I’d more specifically like to see Mickie feud with Nia, Alicia, and then Sasha, Bayley, or Emma. Then, go on to face Asuka after winning those feuds.

    • Welchy

      She’s nowhere near that bad that she needs to go back to the PC. Y’all be over exaggerating

      • ?too litty?

        Listen, I’m an Alexa stan. I never said she was horrible. I said she wasn’t the greatest in the ring. I think Alexa can wrestle above average for sure, but there are women in the division (not Carmella, not Lana, Not Dana) who are way better than her and Alexa truly does have a passion for wrestling, I just think she needs to critique her in-ring some more. I think without a doubt last night, she showed a lot of improvement. But there’s always room for more, I’m not bashing her, I’m just simply stating, she needs to take a break from the spotlight much like the four horse women (minus Becky, poor gal never gets a chance), and while she’s taking a break from the TV, she can go critique her work at the performance center for however long.

    • It

      Delusional

      • ?too litty?

        ? Mmmm… nope. Just thoughtful.

  • Welchy

    Alexa queen won. Stay salty bitches

    • She didn’t have a very good match though…

      • Welchy

        The match was good. You mad she won lmaooo moving on

    • ?too litty?

      I’m fine with Alexa winning personally, I think it was good story telling, she just needs a new tactic on winning matches besides the turnbuckle. I think without a doubt Mickie should win their rematch if there is one because Mickie is the total underdog, I don’t know Bayley, I only know the real underdog.

      • Welchy

        She should’ve won via roll up

      • NoWayHoeSay

        She lost fair so why should she get a re match

        • ?too litty?

          No… the ref costed Mickie the match…

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Mickie will never be a title holder again I doubt

      • The Wicked Bitch

        I think she will but I won’t get my hopes high

  • GlowTime

    Everyone it quick to diss Alexa but I thought her performance tonight was great. Loved the match. After seeing Asuka and Emma have a great showing I felt a little queasy going into Alexa and Mickie, but they did a great job also!

  • Aye Mate

    Fine with the match and the result, this wasn’t the time to do a title switch; I was disappointed that Mickie’s promo indicated that the feud wouldn’t continue. A shame given the good work being done by both women on the promo front.

    Ah well, Asuka’s here.

  • It

    ALEXA IS STILL CHAMPION!!!! I told ya all! She will only lose the title in 2 months to Asuka!

  • Welchy

    Overall a good match.
    Alexa has improved.
    Her match quality has improved. It’s been consistent since she arrived on RAW if we don’t count ER which was set up to be terrible from the get-go.
    Payback produced a quality title match.
    GBOF was great.
    SS was decent.
    No Mercy was good.
    And this was another good showing.
    Of course people will go out of their way to discredit the current champion, because we always tear down the people at the top.
    People are unhappy with the match result? Fine. But be able to distinguish the actual result and what went of previous.

    I don’t get why Alexa works on her opponents arms all the time tho. The moves look nice but where does it lead to? She does no moves or has no finisher that involves her opponents’ arm. She needs to start targeting the head or actual injured parts. It’ll make a lot more sense.

    Mickie was never someone I found to be the best in the ring like most claim, that was until she returned.. her work has been the cleanest and most crisp it’s ever been.
    She really looked like a veteran and I loved that even in the end, she had time to speak up and not look weak. I hope it isn’t over for her and got my fingers crossed for her to win.

  • Welchy

    Emma vs Asuka was really good.
    Top 5 MR matches this year easily.
    Not really surprised at all that it happens the minute one of the best wrestlers in the entire company made her debut.
    Asuka showed her chain wrestling in the beginning, then proceeded with her submissions, then her high flying, then her strikes. I love it. Poetry.
    Emma held her own and didn’t look too bad in defeat.
    Their encounters are always a gem.
    This was the best Emma has looked in a long time. Asuka brings the best out of everyone. Legend.

    Oh yeah.. I screamed when she yelled “okay!!” after Emma slapped her lmaooo

  • Welchy

    Sasha vs Alicia however was the match that I did NOT enjoy.
    Alicia did exactly what I expected her to do. Which was literally nothing new.
    If anything, she looks worse in the ring.
    She needs to tone down her animations and her selling just a tad bit. It comes off sloppy looking. Her build doesn’t help either.
    Sasha performed her usual.
    She’s a good wrestler.
    Btw I cringed at the pin attempt to the outside after the tilt a whirl. for a 10 year veteran, it was quite embarrassing.
    It was nice she brought back her ring drop out too.
    The crowd basically saved the match.

  • Kat Love

    How long will Alexa have the title? It’s getting boring now.

    • MK126

      To think its been a year since she won her first title and now has 4 reigns under her belt

      • Kat Love

        Not even Trish do that.

        • Randall

          Trish damn near had her 6th reign for almost a year.

          • MK126

            But that’s because there wasn’t anyone could hold the title

          • Randall

            Victoria could held the belt… Trish was gone for like 6 months for that reign and somehow kept the belt.

          • MK126

            But Victoria had no one to defend against

          • Randall

            They could have turned Torrie Wilson face and feuded with Victoria until Trish came back! I’m sure Victoria would have made her look like a million bucks in the ring. They could have even had a few interpromotional matches going against Christy Hemme, Jillian, and Melina.

          • MK126

            But wasn’t Torrie with Candice and Victoria doing the Vince’s Devils thing?

          • Randall

            Yes that’s why I said they should have turned her face…

          • Kat Love

            Your right and I actually hated that. But what I’m saying is that in her first year Trish didn’t win 4 reigns.

          • Randall

            Trish actually won the belt 3 times within a year after her first run!

            Well it didn’t seem like she was in your face a lot like they are doing with Alexa.

          • Randall

            You go back and watch now and she was the front and center of every title match in 2002/03. It mainly consisted of Trish vs Molly and Trish vs Jazz for the women’s title. I agree with you that it’s ridiculous to put the title on her 4 times already because it basically leaves nothing else for her to do. I mean she’s already accomplished almost everything possibly in wwe. At that she’s only 26!!

  • Nicola Byrne

    The match was decent!! Alexa can’t put on a good show. It’s like the divas division. actually non of the women’s match was good .

    • Welchy

      Sis lol..

    • Aye Mate

      Hmm.
      Y’know, in retrospect there are plenty of times in which it seems that the only difference between the Divas matches and now is that the crowds are more generally invested in what the women are doing. Point in case, this title match: a fine match, not great but far from terrible, elevated by the storytelling on hand and the crowd being more receptive.

      Also, I’d say the Divas had plenty of good matches that were ruined by a meaning behind them and/or the crowds.

  • Lucas

    I’ve always tried to not talk shit about Alexa, because:
    1- i think it’s stupid how a lot of people hate on anyone as soon as they get the title.
    2- I actually like her and have since her NXT days.
    She’s pretty, and she can be funny and is good at her role, but watching this match, i couldn’t help but fast forward the video when Alexa was in control. Her performance just bored me to the point I was looking at how much longer the match would be. Mickie was a queen, like always ??

    • GOD STRATUS•

      But I’m called a hater when I say the same she’s uninspiring. Not shade just fact.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Oh yeah Asuka debuted. Smh mess

  • DayOneISH!

    Torrie Wilson had a better DDT than Alexa just saying.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Aa61d1jafBE

    • Robann

      This is what she needs to do. I hate when she does that Snap DDT because it looks ineffective AF.

  • Robann

    Whoever thought Alexa was going to lose the title in this match….no. It was painfully obvious she was going to retain because they’re clearly feeding her to Asuka in the near future. BUT, you have to give credit where it’s due. Even though I still find myself getting bored when she in control/dominating because it’s pretty much the same moves, over and over, and even though the ending was once again anti climatic (can she PLEASE do another variation of the DDT?! She is too petite to do a regular Snap on someone who is bigger/taller than her, which is pretty much ALL of the women’s main roster at the moment. I feel like an off the top rope Tornado DDT would’ve been epic), this was DEFINITELY one of her better matches, hands down. I think between this and her GBOF match, it’s clear that she is improving in the ring.

    Did I actually think her and Mickie would put on anything above a 3/3.5 star match? No. She’s just not on Mickie’s level as far as in-ring ability (yet!) and you can only carry and assist your opponent so much.

    Was this match as bad as people are trying to claim it is because of her? Hell no, stop finding reasons to hate on the girl. She’s entertaining, one of few people on the roster who actually could go on the mic, and she’s decent in the ring.

    • Number One

      Wrong as usual. Mickie should have won, Alexa’s mic skills suck, and Mickie nearly carried Alexa

  • Litax4

    Really enjoyed this match Alexa really is improving with every match, Mickie really brought out something in her well because Mickie is just that great. Wonder where this feud will go next or will they just have someone else challenge for the title?

  • Alexa show a little bit of progression here, but we must consider how great Mickie James is, such a shame she didn’t won the title.

  • Raleex2

    I don’t think Alexa is a remarkable talent, but she’s not bad neither. The match was really good and how it was built, how they created tension was great. The same can be said by Asuka vs Emma, which if I were a wwe creative I wouldn’t wasted this good match between them two that fast because it wasn’t refreshing or even a good introduction for Asuka. The match itself was amazing, but the outcome and how the careers of both ladies continue is nothing we wouldn’t expect.

  • Michael Max

    Lmao at the ref in the picture looking like “Dis bitch really just won with that damn ddt again..”
