Welcome back to another Free Match Friday.
This week in the spirit of Clash of Champions one week from Sunday, we decided to feature Candice Michelle vs. Melina this week. Unlike certain other pay-per-view Night of Champions did keep at least one women’s match on the card. In keeping with the theme of the event, these matches would be for whichever women’s title was active at that time.
In this match, Melina heads in as Women’s Champion. Heading into this match these two women had quite the feud going. Melina was sitting pretty in her second reign with the title. Candice was trying to capture her first.
In the end, after a reverse roundhouse kick, Candice would get the three count and become the new Women’s Champion. This was her first and only women’s title with the company. She would go forward and hold the title for 105-days. She successfully defended her title against Melina at The Great American Bash.
She would then move on to Beth Phoenix and retain against her at Unforgiven. Phoenix would get the better of her however and defeat Candice for the title at No Mercy. That was Phoenix’s first title reign.
