On this day in history:

January 25th, 2009 | At 2009’s Royal Rumble, the Glamazon Beth Phoenix defended her Women’s Title against Melina. Beth did her best to thwart Melina, tossing her around like a rag doll and twisting her like a pretzel, at one point making her kick herself in the back of the head. However, a fast reversal into a roll-up pin earned Melina the win and the right to call herself the new Women’s Champion. This would mark the start of Melina’s third and final run with the title.

What are your memories of this moment?



  1. This is one of my favourite matches <3 These 2 had such amazing chemistry, and their styles meshed so well together with beth's power & melina's flexibility/creativity. I remember being so excited that Melina won the title after all that she went through with her injury. It was so nice to see her better than ever in the ring despite her injury. I was scared that it would halt her but she kept on improving
