Your Monday Post #144: Mickie James vs Beth Phoenix (September, 21st 2009)
Its safe to say this week has delivered a fair bit of news regarding the women of the WWE, whether that would be Mickie James return to the company being made official, or the rumors of Beth Phoenix being the next selected female inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame. While that is yet to be made official, Phoenix’s career included a fair few stunning clashes with the returned Mickie James, and in September 2009, she became the obstacle in James path towards momentum, as the then Divas Champion looked to shine prior to a future showdown with her number one contender Alicia Fox.
A Short stare-down between Mickie and Fox at ringside proved costly, as Mickie was not only rammed shoulder first into the ring post, but taken out by Phoenix’s powerful finishing Glam Slam moments later. This gained Phoenix a non title victory over the Divas Champion, who became the subject of an assault also by her Number One Contender, that being Alicia, after the match, sending her message of looking to become the first African American Divas Champion.
