Today in History: Melina vs. Mickie in a “Falls Count Anywhere” Match

On this day in history:

March 5th, 2007 | Soon after winning the Women’s Championship for the first time in her career, Melina put it on the line against Mickie James in the first-ever Divas “Falls Count Anywhere” match. They made use of the stipulation by traveling to the backstage area, fighting in the Divas locker room before returning to the ring to settle the match the old fashioned way. Mickie knocked herself loopy with a missed Frankensteiner and the match ended soon after, with Melina retaining her title.
