At the World Wrestling Fan Experience (WWFX) show held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in the Phileppines on February 4th, Melina defeated Jillian Hall.

These two famously wrestled each on October 12th, 2009 on Raw after Jillian had just (sneakily) pinned Mickie James to win the WWE Divas Championship. Guest host Nancy O’Dell announced that she had negotiated a Diva trade and that Jillian would be defending her title against Raw’s newest acquisition, Melina. Melina went on to subsequently defeat Hall and re-gain the Divas Title.

Over in Vancouver, Canada, KC Spinelli retained her ECCW Women’s Championship over Mary Jane Payne via disqualification when Payne’s buddies Scotty Mac and Nick Price from The Administration interfered.

And finally, all the way across the pond in Morecambe, England, for XWA Goldrush, Jenny Sjödin also retained her Pro Wrestling: EVE title when she defeated both Shanna and April Davids in a triple threat match. Sjödin forced Shanna to tap out to her cross armbreaker submission hold. Shanna was helped from the ring by EVE official Dann Read and results say she’s injured her shoulder.
