Today in History: Melina vs. Mickie James in the Women’s Title Tournament Semifinals


On this day in history:

October 23rd, 2006 | After Trish Stratus won the Women’s Championship in her retirement match at Unforgiven, the belt was vacated and a tournament took place to crown the new champion. In one of the semifinal matches, Melina and Mickie James faced off, packing the intensity of a Pay-Per-View match into a four-minute time slot on Raw. Both were determined to earn a shot at the title, but it was Mickie who advanced, pinning Melina after hitting the Mickie-DT.
