WWE News: Mickie James thanks Beth Phoenix on 10-year anniversary of Women's title win
James had defeated Phoenix to pick up the title a decade ago.
What's the story?
Mickie James thanked Beth Phoenix on Twitter on the 10-year anniversary of James picking up the WWE Women’s Championship from her compatriot.
Phoenix might not be a wrestling full-time in the WWE, at the moment, but she thanked James in return as well.
In case you didn't know...
While James has been wrestling full-time in the WWE since her return, teaming up with Alexa Bliss. Phoenix is a member of the WWE Hall-of-Fame and even took part in the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match, even though she is not a full-time wrestler anymore.
The Glamazon was a colour commentator for the Mixed Match Challenge and also took up the same role at the Women’s Royal Rumble at WrestleMania 34.
The heart of the matter
Phoenix and James were rivals back then when the scenario for women wrestlers was not as progressive as it is these days.
James replied on Twitter to a post where a video of the match was posted and thanked Phoenix for the moment.
Phoenix too replied saying she would never forget how special that moment felt.
We should still see James with Bliss as the pair look to take on Nia Jax for the Women’s title on RAW.
Phoenix, for her part, still looks good in the ring but she should be heard and seen on a number of other shows.
The WWE has come a long way in that decade as the female wrestlers have been pushed extensively by the two brands and the WWE has unearthed a lot of quality talent as well.
James and Phoenix were two wrestlers that were extremely talented back then and it is good to see that the pair can remember some of their glorious matches from back in the day.
