Today in History: Beth vs. Melina vs. Mickie for the Women’s Title

On this day in history:

December 31st, 2007 | On the final Raw of 2007, Beth Phoenix defended her Women’s Title against Melina and Mickie James in a Triple Threat match. Mickie and Melina spent much of the match jockeying for position while Beth worked at a slower pace. That strategy was the winning one, as Beth managed to pin Melina after hitting a well-timed fisherman suplex while Mickie was on the outside. One must think this match impressed the right people, as the same bout was booked for Judgment Day 2008 a few months later.

What are your memories of this moment? Tell us in the comments!

    Nice little match.

    Good triple threat, poor Melina just flopping around at the end haha. I think their Judgment Day match was better though

    I loved this match. Melina brought something different to the Beth/Mickie dynamic, and the highlight was undoubtedly seeing Mickie and Melina actually work together after a year of being at the other’s throat to take out the greater evil. Granted, it didn’t last long, but it was great to watch as a fan.

    I always wanted to see a Fatal-4-way with Beth, Candice, Mickie & Melina. They all feuded at one time or another & it would’ve mad for a brilliant match at that time

    what a good match this was, i loved jr and kings commentary. not at all mentioning much jealousy or talking about their boobs. it was about the skills and womens championship. good days. had i been in charge of this show, these women would still be around today.
