    Great match ! But there was no reaction from the crowd. And i think this match is underatted. But i remember when Mickie dit Alicia with the ddt. It was sick , but i looked like it hurt so bad. I felt bad for Alicia.

    But i do rember the Ninja Turtles for some reason thought….i dont know why.

  • Mikas

    Wasnt this the match that started people talking about Mickey’s weight?

    The match was kinda boring, slow paced and it felt like they just executed some random moves. The dead crowd didnt help the match either.

    • K2&NattieFan

      I have to admit, Mickie was really fat in here! Shes now better in TNA!

        @K2&NattieFan mickie wasnt fat id say husky at best..fat makes her sound like over weight..

    • Melina&Mickie4ever!

      @Mikas I think they started to call Mickie fat during the start of her fued with Maryse. Remember when the Subway Guy announce the match bewteen Mickie & Maryse that was suppose to be a joke about Mickie’s weight. I think wwe owned up to it in a article after she was released. Or her last months she was in wwe.

    • BillyGP

      Mickie was thick but not fat.

  • K2&NattieFan

    Am I the only one who thinks that the divas title belt has more color now than before? I thought it was because of the light or something like that, but its not, the title have more pink now!

  • hueyian

    Damn I remember thinking Mickie was looking pretty careless in her divas title reign

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    Not one of my favorite matches ! And not really a good match IMO. I was really siked to see these two face-off seeing as both of them were my current favorite divas but when the match showed to be a dissapointment. Mickie’s DDT looked sloppy and sick at the sametime. The match was underrated too and I wish they had another match after this. Probably on Raw or SD. But in the end Mickie & Alicia are still my favorite so one match for me dosent change how I feel. LOL

    I found this match to be pretty good .I Loved the DDT ,but yeah the match is pretty underrated .

    I wish these too would’ve faced off a couple of more times.

  • B. McGillicutty

    Man oh man did the timing of this match come to a complete stop at the end. And that DDT looked like it hurt!

    I’m actually looking forward to hell in a cell tonight. It should be pretty good!

    The only thing that makes this match memorable (surprisingly until now) is that sick DDT. I thought Alicia would end up out of action due to a neck injury, i was pretty sure about that. But all in all not a great match, but also not a lackluster too.

    NB : If you find a youtube video named “Alicia kills herself with mick-DT” the video is made from this match

    • K2&NattieFan

      Agree with you!

      I already saw that video lol And theres another videos ” Alicia Fox nearly kills herself with monkeyflip”, because is constatly over selling!

      • http://twitter.com/jeffrybeliEVE ClassicKellyEve

        Yep, Mick-Dt, Monkey Flip, he/she also made the “Hurricanrana” version too.. But among Fox’ oversellings Mick-Dt and Melina’s Last Call are those who made me “Wow” because i can’t imagine if i were in Fox position .__.

        But hey, Fox’s oversellings are one of many reasons why i like her as a performer. :))

        • K2&NattieFan

          Actually I hate over selling, for eg I really love AJ but sometimes she really over sells like when Beth grabs her arms for the galm slam, looks like she is having an hurt attack or something like that :S

          Talking abou alixia, where the hell is she?

        • http://twitter.com/jeffrybeliEVE ClassicKellyEve

          Oh, yea overselling can be very good when they oversell a devastating moves AND executed well. It would be very WEIRD if they oversell a simple move like monkey flip and roll-up (to my surprise Beth sometimes oversell a rollup) and NOT EXECUTED WELL..

          Oh yeah, she disappeared for almost a month. Not only her, Rosa Mendes and Tamina too… This is what i’m afraid of when Kelly won the championship and when the womens champ unified.. Now look, SD Divas have nothing to do (except Nattie)

        • K2&NattieFan

          Natalya is just playing the loser side kick roel for Beth -.- I hate that!!!

    I remember watching this on PPV and yelling “HOLY SHIT” when it happened live. I actually thought Alicia injured herself with that DDT.

  • BillyGP

    Mickie protects who she faces and while the DDT looked sick and like it hurts Mickie was not going to injury Alicia.

    The match was alright.

  • LuNarJunk

    This match was ok. I still think WWE should get rid of the divas division and bring back women’s wrestling. Gotta start over it’s crap now…

    • layglamacool

      well wwe had to move with the times. People want to see hot attractive women on television. So looks are what wwe looks for now. They think it is easier to turn a model into a wrestler than it is to find an attractive trained wrestler.

  • Blonde Bombshell

    OMG, Alicia’s entrance in this match is EXACTLY like in SvR 2011! Jerry and Cole also talk some of the phrases that are in the game.

  • layglamacool

    Alicia Fox needs to learn how to sell properly because she can end up injuring herself and someone else if she doesn’t get this sorted out.

    Mickie James was very sloppy with her work around this time and I think that is why she was sent to smackdown. She stepped up her game when she was feuding with Laycool and Beth Phoenix but then she got released. Which was bad timing on wwe’s part because the fued was just heating up. I wanted to see more of Mickie after that.

  • WWFoverWWE

    Woohoo Mickie is great ^.^
