I said: In 2016 I didn't think so, but Mickie just keeps adding and adding to her case. She's been great as a face and heel. She's really great at portraying her character into the ring. Great brawls or regular matches. She can really play up drama to make very emotional matches. Mickie is making it harder and harder to deny her. vs Deonna Purrazzo (Impact, 2022-01-09) vs Trish Stratus (WWE, 2006-04-02) vs Asuka (NXT, 2016-11-19)
Went and watched this one twice now to really take it in. This is an underrated WWE women's match from the period the audience were trained not to pay any attention. Mind you Jerry Lawler's really hyping these two as really good wrestlers even if he can't help himself fallinginto his usual antics. Melina's got some really good heel psychology, constantly finding ways to bend the rules to her advantage and has this almost permanently pissed off face about her like she doesn't want to be there. She fakes getting an eyelash in her eye to clock distracted Mickie out with a forearm, before using the ropes for leverage in a leg-locked double chickenwing (I think that's what it's called... looks cool and unique) until the referee pulls her off. I really like the transition to Mickie's comeback, she's in the splits and drags Melina leg across the ring so they're both in the splits facing each other exchanging strikes before Mickie basement dropkicks Melina down. Neckbreaker and crossbody from the top rope both get 2 counts for Mickie and the crowd is really into this now. Melina hits an eyerake on Mickie though and hits an inverted DDT for the dirty win. Match is only 9 minutes long, they do a good job of fitting in a lot stuff in that time without it feeling rushed. ***1/4
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in February 2017Another awesome match between these 2 - Mickie & Becky have a great chemistry with each other. Mickie once again targeted that arm of Becky that she has been targeting in every match they have had. Becky was really good selling as usual, and her big comeback was great. Very enjoyable bout. ***1/2
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in February 2017I was a big fan of their PPV match, and the re-match was even better. Very simple, super effective & well executed storytelling in Mickie looking to be in trouble for majority of the match until the finish. Super fun, great match. **** What a great week for WWE TV matches - Charlotte/Bayley, this + Bray/Cena/Styles triple threat.
