Night of Champions Rewind: Candice Michelle vs. Melina for the Women’s Championship (2007)

Leading up to Night of Champions this Sunday, we’re looking back at memorable Diva moments from the history of the Pay-Per-View.

Today, we’re looking at the very first incarnation of Night of Champions, when it was used as the theme for 2007’s Vengeance. Every year since, Night of Champions has been its own PPV event.

Back in 2007, Candice Michelle faced Women’s Champion Melina with the title on the line. The Divas had had a back and forth feud for a while, and though Melina no longer underestimated the former Diva Search contestant, she couldn’t overcome that underdog momentum.

Candice would defeat Melina, becoming the first Diva Search alum to win a wrestling championship. In this moment, she paved the way for the likes of Layla and Eve Torres to become multi-time champs.

Watch the match below:
