Mickie James and Melina to Reignite Classic Feud for WWC in Puerto Rico

Former WWE Divas and Women’s Champions Melina and Mickie James are set to reignite their classic feud in WWE when they face off once again on June 30th for Puerto Rico’s World Wrestling Council.

The former rivals battled intensely over the WWE Women’s Championship during their careers in WWE, and hold the record for being the second and third women, respectively, in company history to hold both the WWE Women’s and Divas Titles.

Their match will be part of WWC’s annual anniversary extravaganza, “Anniversario 2012″. The match takes place on June 30th at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

Since being released by WWE in April 2010, Mickie found success in TNA where she has held the Knockouts Championship on two occasions. Melina, released last August, has wrestled on various occasions including live on Internet pay per view for WSU.

    OMFG !!!!!!!! I MUST find a way to watch this match.

    I just have too. Mickie & Melina :’) !! <3

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

      Who can forget their amazing championship match at backlash though ?

      These two girls had a chemistry that was just unbelievable.

      • redsandman99

        I know. I honestly thought these two should have been the diva’s match at that year’s Wrestlemania. Their feud got like halted just to push Ashley, which sucked.

        • jen07201

          It should have been Mickie vs Melina for the title at Wrestlemania.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          I was pissed when that happened! Ashley could’ve been saved for after. If they were given the chance to perform at ‘mania, they would’ve put on a show stealing match. These two were at the top of their game at the time. Not to mention they had the crowd in the palm of their hands.

        • AdrianRay

          Wrestlemania 23 would have been amazing with the Backlash match-up taking place! Ashley ruined two Wrestlemania’s in a row! Ugh that girl!

        • jen07201

          I never bought the whole Melina/Ashley storyline. They ruined the Mickie/Melina storyline for nothing.

      • norisclouds

        I actually think I’m one of the few people that didn’t think it was that great. “Oh a double split spot.” meh.

        • Marlon Eric

          Wrestling wise – the Mickie/Melina feud wasn’t that great. It was right after a lot of things Trish and Lita did and we were still kind of spoiled from that era of wrestling. Melina was also very sloppy as a heel performer when she started wrestling again on RAW and I never liked the matches she had with Mickie.

          But character-wise, it was pretty good.

        • Jhonmarco

          Really? Their match at Backlash was one of the best diva matches I’ve ever seen. The wrestling between the two was a lot more solid than Trish/Lita IMO.

        • redsandman99

          I thought Mickie/Melina was a good feud with good matches. The falls count anywhere and the match at Backlash were great. In all honesty though, I think the WWE could have gotten even more out of it than they did.

        • jen07201

          I totally agree the crowd was into the Mickie/Melina feud if you look at their first championship match.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Exactly what Redsandman99 said. The trish/Lita feud was better because wwe reached its full potential. With melina/mickie we didn’t see that happen. Reason remains a mystery.

          As far as their matches go, IMO mickie & melina were both better in-ring workers, in their prime, than trish/lita. I dont know why but I always thought that.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Melina was also at the top of her game back then when she was a heel. I didnt find her sloopy at all. But then again, thats just me :)

      • AdrianRay

        Honestly, I never found Melina to be that good in the ring.

        • Marlon Eric

          No, no, no – I loved their match at Backlash. But that’s the only match between them that I know of that was particular good. The only match out of that whole feud which was good.

          Yes, there was ton of brawling and good character-angles but I never really found Melina to have good matches in her early heel/RAW career. On Smackdown, she had a few good ones with Christy Hemme, Jillian and even one with Trish Stratus at that PPV.

          To me, Melina started to wrestle better when she begun her feud with Beth Phoenix. Than after that, she got much better as face and than back to heel again.

        • Marlon Eric

          Melina’s first heel run on RAW was memorable mainly because of the out-of-ring segments and character angles. She was not in her prime – whatever that even means since she has better matches later in her career and later in her age.

          It wasn’t that long ago and I remember tons of people on the board at this site alone dogging her work because it deteriorated at that time. All she did was resort to hair-pulling, screaming and slapping. Once, Torrie Wilson even carried her through a match.

          So that’s what I meant. I’m not going to sit her and forget she sucked just because I happen to like her. LOL

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          I actually believe she was better in the first half of her career. After her injuries, imo, she started to become sloopy. But fair enough, I do get your point. We can agree to disagree here :)

        • Marlon Eric

          Agreed :)

  • jen07201

    I am so happy to see them facing off again.

    • Choko

      they had the best feud since Trish and Lita, also their chemistry together was so damn awesome. They made it seem like they really hated each other (I think they did at that point) and yeah, they also connected really nicely with the crowd.

      THEIR CHEMISTRY AND FUED = LEGENDARY

      I wish WWE invested more in their feud.

      • jen07201

        So true. There has been no other feud recently like the Mickie/Melina feud. They brought out the best of each other.

        • http://sickreasonstobebeautiful.tumblr.com/ no rain

          Kelly/Eve and Maxine/Kaitlyn have potential

  • jen07201

    Oh how I wish this feud would happen in TNA. It would be so awesome

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

      This^ .

      • jen07201

        I wish that Melina would come to TNA and begins feuding with Mickie kind of like how Mickie and Tara feuded.

        • Mr.3D

          You do realize that Melina still has heat with Mickie James, Brooke Tessmacher, and Angelina Love!!!

        • jen07201

          That’s why it would be intresting.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          ^Lmfaooo @jen!

          But mickie & melina burried their problems. And Im sure brooke & angelina can do the same with melina. Its a matter of being professional.

        • Choko

          Mickie and Melina became friends in real life kind of like the same time they became friends on TV. Somewhere in 2008, that was when pictures of them partying together and such were online at first. I think they became friends in 2007.

          Melina has even been to some Mickie James concerts in the past. They are friends.

          Angelina is probably on her way out of TNA, also like EVELOVER said, Brooke and Angelina can be professional. By the way, Melina is more marketable than both of them combined. It wouldn’t be a huge loss for TNA if Brooke and Angelina would leave for Melina.

        • jen07201

          I like that they were friends but it was awesome to have them as enemies.

        • Jhonmarco

          Yeah they had bad blood during OVW, but from what I’ve heard that’s all cleared up.

          Sorry, but I’d rather have Tessmacher or a new talent over Melina. Girls like her have had that mainstream exposure for half a decade, I’d much prefer seeing her in the indies. Therre are plenty of women who could benefit from the TV time more than Melina.

  • redsandman99

    Oh hell yeah. They had such awesome matches in WWE. I hope this gets posted online so I can see this.

  • Jhonmarco

    Oh! Should be good, these two haven’t faced off since what 2007? 2008? Looking foward to seeing how this goes.

  • jen07201

    These two always brought the best out of each other.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

      More than that. You know how everybody has their best rival. I.e. Lita/Trish.

      Mickie and Melina were the best enemies and partners.

      • jen07201

        Yeah they sure are.

  • Nostalgia

    Melina is a WWE girl at heart and won’t go to TNA. I think she hopes to be back in the WWE one day

    • mariah.

      This. That’s all there is to it, really. I wish people would just drop it…

  • http://www.youtube.com/jillfan1 Jillfan1

    One of my favorite female feuds of all time love Melina and Mickie James ? CAN’T WAIT

    • http://www.youtube.com/jillfan1 Jillfan1

      <3

  • jen07201

    The fall that Mickie took trying to do that Hurricarana of the top rope still gives me goosebumps.

  • Nostalgia

    Why does Melina have Problems with Angelina and Brooke

    • jen07201

      I think because Melina said bad things about them.

    • Jhonmarco

      I know with Brooke it was due to Melina’s backstage attitude & how no one was allowed to be associated with the men she was with at that time. No idea about Angelina.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        Is it true melina & brooke also fought about some furr boots ? lmfaooo I heard about that once.

        • Jhonmarco

          LMAO, I’d die if that was a legit argument.

        • jen07201

          What? Really?

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Lmfaooo thats what I heard. Remember that halloween battle royal, I think it was, brooke wore furr boots & since melina actually wore the boots all the time, I guess she pulled a “You’re a copppyyyy catttttt AHHHH!” & fire works exploded.

          Ima search it up right now.

        • No Holds Barred

          Ugh, not true. Just another dumb rumour made up by the IWC.

          Melina never liked Extreme Expose because they were just dancers and not wrestlers… and awful dancers

      • jen07201

        Didn’t Lita and Melina have problems?

        • Jhonmarco

          I think it’d be easier to list women Melina didn’t have a problem with.

        • jen07201

          Who wouldn’t be on the list?

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          yes, I Also Heard Melina got mad that Brooke Was Wearing Her Boots.

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          I Don’t Understand though. Didn’t Kelly Kelly And Rhaka Khan also where fur boots? o_o

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          Wear*

        • AdrianRay

          Good lord! Fur boots!? Melina is just a bunch of awesomeness!

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          See!!! I think that rumor is true! And I just saw this forum thing about “real life feuds” and melina’s name is in most of them! lmfaoo.

        • Jhonmarco

          lolololololol Melina was such a bitch back then, I can’t even get over it .

        • jen07201

          She was an awesome heel.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          In & Out of the ring LOL

        • Choko

          Err… JHONMARCO and EVELOVER. You need to get off your high horse. Calling Melina a bitch is just immature.

          Melina herself has said that the fur boot thing was never true, and the same has been said by Brooke. Like @No holds barred said, I have heard that Melina confronted Brooke or Kelly and told them off on something and thats how the problems started. Also Layla and Melina were friends I remember, so Melina only had problems with 1/3 of Extreme Expose.

          Also Brooke leaved WWE because she was going to settle down with her BF.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Where did I call her a “Bitch” ? Please tell me.

          All I said was that I HEARD about the fur boots rumor. Then I wrote I THINK it is true. No holds Barred said the rumor isnt true, than so be it. It still a silly little fun converstation to have.

          Now, sorry to break it down to you but I never called her a bitch. If you’re referring to my “In & Out of the ring LOL” that was in reply to Jen’s comment not jhonmarco’s.

        • Jhonmarco

          You need to relaxe. Called a joke, hence why I wrote “lolololol” in front of it. If I was being malicious you would’ve known. Trust me.

        • Choko

          Oh, and since when did “lolololololol” become a term for “i was joking”.

          Last time I checked lol was laugh out loud/laughing out loud.

          Also calling someone a bitch is just rude, even if it is a joke or not. I doubt Melina would like your ‘joke’.

        • Jhonmarco

          If I was trying to be hurtful I would’ve said:

          “Melina is such a bitch, no wonder no one likes her catty self.”

          To you it’s rude, to me it’s just an innocent joke. Stop trying to make it something more. And what makes you think it matters whether Melina likes my joke or not? I made for my own enjoyment and/or others. Calm down.

  • DarknessRuler

    Damn that picture is fierce!

  • http://Yahoo.com/lilkhris141414@yahoo.com SEXYOFTHESEXIST2011

    maybe Melina will be @ TNA’S Open Fight Night & Challenge Gail Kim for the Knockout Title but i hope Velvet Doesn’t Challenge her either Melina or Brooke Tessmacher or Sarita

  • GlamSlamFan

    YES! YES! YES!

  • WWFoverWWE

    How time just flies by.

  • Nostalgia

    Melina is the ultimate bad girl

  • Raekon

    AWESOME News! :D
    Really hope we will get to see it somehow! :)

  • jen07201

    Ok I don’t remember seeing the staredown on the picture happen on TV. When was it?

    • AdrianRay

      I was wondering the same. Must have been a WWE.com post or some MySpace shit.

      • jen07201

        Maybe. The glare they give to each other is intense.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          It was from WWE.com

    • Air-Bourne

      It was taken right before their match at Backlash. The following day WWE.com uploaded a gallery featuring their match and this picture. I’m not positive but i think there was more than one.

      • Choko

        It was a diary of their match, kind of like they had one with Punk and Jericho for WrestleMania.

  • jen07201

    I still remember their double split at Backlash. Ow that looked painful.

  • MELshocked

    Cannot wait for this match, so excited. These two had such great chemistry in WWE, this is gonna be an awesome match.

    To be honest, why are old issues being brought up in the comments? It’s also kind of funny that Melina is automatically blamed. We don’t know what happened and no, dirt sheets do not qualify as reliable informants… so please don’t try to prove anything with what they say.

    With the Brooke situation, Brooke has confirmed that the two don’t like each other… but she also said it wasn’t over boots. She obviously didn’t have nice things to say about Melina, but that is only one side of the story. It amazes me how fast people will jump on Melina and blame her, immediately. Am I saying Melina is a perfect little angel? No, she has even admitted that she isn’t. But that doesn’t mean she is this bitch that everyone has brought her up to be. Point blank, there are two sides to every story… and Melina’s side is almost never heard, so we don’t know what the beef is between the girls and to be frank, we don’t need to know.

    • jen07201

      True. I’m just happy that we get to see the two face off again.

      • MELshocked

        Agreed, it’s going to be an amazing match – no doubt about that. :D

        • jen07201

          I wish it aired on TV.

  • jen07201

    I’m wondering if there will be a heel and a face. If so who will be the heel and who will be the face?

  • MELshocked

    Don’t mean to post again… but I wonder why Diva Dirt still hasn’t updated about Melina vs. Winter (with Lita as the special guest referee) coming up on the 28th. :S

    • jen07201

      Really? How cool. Maybe tell them via Twitter or Facebook.

  • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

    yes!!! I would love to see that

  • Air-Bourne

    The modern day Trish and Lita. How i miss these two in a WWE ring, mostly Melina because Mickie is doing her thing over in TNA.

  • No Holds Barred

    AHHHH!!! Cannot wait. Their match at Backlash, Falls Count Anywhere and those many Heat matches they had – if this tops any of them I will mark da fook out

    • jen07201

      I would love to see them feud again.

  • No Holds Barred

    ..and people should stop bringing up Melina’ s beef with people, so what?? I hate a lot of people. Many wrestlers hate each other, you just don’t hear about them – Luna hated Sable, Chyna hated Torrie, Ivory didn’t like Chyna and apparently Jackie was rough with Ivory

    Remember Michelle McCool talkd about cattiness in the locker room and Verity Thomas quit FCW because of backstage politics

    • AdrianRay

      We all know that heat backstage is common. It is a joy to discuss such arguments because we don’t know the wrestlers on a personal level. It is fun to debate on such crazy antics! People on the Internet just go over the top and go crazy on certain topics. It causes a big deal when rumors swirl around from people having a seriously humorous conversation. I assume everyone on Diva Dirt is mature enough to realize between a silly talk, and some serious shit.

      • Choko

        Chyna hated Torrie? where did that come from?

        • Kessuki

          I dont believe that for a second and if you are right i think you have your wires crossed between torrie and the first tori who is most likely who you are referring to.

        • redsandman99

          I don’t know about Chyna hating Torrie but Torrie herself said Sable became very hard to work with during their program.

        • No Holds Barred

          yeah apparently Chyna and Debra didn’t like Torrie Wilson and were the only Divas not to give her a welcome when she came to the WWF

    • _Bryan_

      chyna and torrie ? chyna was not part of the company when torrie was brought in …
