Your Monday Post #107: Melina vs Beth Phoenix In a I Quit Match at One Night Stand 2008 (June, 1st 2008)
Payback Has its Closure and Extreme Rules is afoot. With the Pay Per View known for its particular brutal stipulations and fair few memorable matches, this weeks Edition of Your Monday Post is dedicated to Matches booked for the Women with “Extreme” Stipulations. The 2008 edition of One Night Stand (before being replaced with Extreme Rules a Year Later) saw WWE Alumni and former WWE Women’s and Divas Champions Beth Phoenix and Melina battle in the first ever Women’s “I Quit” Match.
The Meaning of the Stipulation would see the match further and further until one participant would utter the Two Simple Words of “I Quit”. Melina and Beth Phoenix, Two Women who left a lasting impact on the women’s division many years ago for their numerous matches versus fellow women and for their characters would be booked in the first I Quit Match in the History of the Women’s Division, many weeks after the partnership of the two fell apart, resulting in various altercations prior to and after the Judgment Day Pay Per View on that year. The Animosity that increased between the two lead to the booking of the match, but like many opponents who had faced Phoenix, the unparalleled strength of the Glamazon had become too much and the Fiery Melina was forced into submission, ultimately giving in and awarding Phoenix the victory.
