Cattie’s Catch Up: Mickie James vs Melina vs Beth Phoenix for the Women’s Championship at Judgement Day 2008 (May, 18th 2008)

Welcome All to another Mickie-Centric Edition of Cattie’s Catch Up as the weeks slowly close on the way to Mickie’s WWE in ring return as Miss Hardcore Country steps up to current NXT Women’s Champion Asuka Live at NXT Takeover Toronto later this month. Looking back at another WWE moment in Mickie’s long-term wrestling career, Mickie would walk into Judgement Day back in 2008 as Women’s Champion, defending the title against two rivals and fellow women from the particular era, Beth Phoenix and Melina.

James had captured the women’s championship just a few weeks before by defeating Phoenix, and a rematch fell apart for Phoenix courtesy of an accidental miscue from Melina. Phoenix would ensure Melina took the blame in a backstage attack, leading to Melina’s face turn, and the two would walk into Judgement Day with much tension and as contenders to the Women’s Title both women had held in the past. Melina had thrown off the Glamazon in the closing moments with intentions of taking out the defending champion Mickie moments later, but to her dismay she would be floored by the finishing DDT from the champ, thus Melina had technically cost Phoenix another chance to recapture the championship.
