Weekend house show results from this past weekend, including the road return of Melina, below:
Friday, August 27th, 2010
Gail Kim, Nikki Bella & Brie Bella def. Maryse, Jillian Hall & Rosa Mendes.
The girls were allowed to wear much more revealing bathing suits than they did on Raw a few weeks back. No offense to the ladies, but it was a fairly typical Divas match. I will say this, I had a blast watching this match because it seemed like all six ladies were having fun – even the heels. (Source: TheSteelCage.net)
More after the cut:
Layla def. Kelly Kelly to retain the Women’s Championship.
The crowd was behind Kelly Kelly, but she did not look good at this event in terms of her wrestling. She blew a couple of spots and eventually tried a sunset flip out of the corner and Layla just sat down and hooked her legs for the quick pin. (Source: PWTorch)

2. Melina beat Alicia Fox in a sloppy match with her old split leg-drop. Before the match, Eve was throwing T-shirts to the crowd, but Fox kicked her out of the ring. (Source: PWInsider)
First, I must say the the Bella Twins look absolutely amazing in real life. Second, I was very surprised with this match. The match was extremely good. The Bellas got a lot of offense in, and at one point Nikki hit a nasty dropkick on Layla that was perfectly executed. There were several points where either Layla or Michelle, whichever one wasn’t in the ring, would make sure the ref was distracted before attacking whichever Twin was in the ring. The Twins didn’t get out without their signature switcheroo, though, as Nikki and Brie switched while the ref was scolding McCool. The finish came when Nikki rolled up Layla after Layla was distracted by McCool. Perhaps a sign of some tension? (Source: PWTorch)
