    WWE Night of Champions - Divas Champion Maryse vs. Mickie James



    Divas Champion Maryse vs. Mickie James




    Bet on the outcome of this match:


    Clique Casino


    Nobody can run forever. That’s the lesson slowly dawning on Divas Champion Maryse.

    Despite the conceited Canadian’s efforts to seemingly avoid Mickie James, the Divas Champion must now face her rival one-on-one in a title match at Night of Champions.

    For her part, the four-time Women’s Champion persevered match after match, defeating Maryse in singles and tag team competitions, resolute in her determination to face the Divas Champion for an opportunity at gold. That perseverance finally paid off when Mickie became the No. 1 contender to the Divas Championship after defeating three other Divas in a Fatal Four Way Match: Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix and Rosa Mendes. During that match, Mickie displayed the fortitude that has made her such a looming threat to Maryse.

    To imply that Maryse will not put up a hard-charging defense, however, would be not only premature but foolish. With athleticism to match her beauty, Maryse has proven resourceful, cunning and willing to do just about anything to retain her place atop the Divas division. She may need to summon all of those traits in order to fend off her rival at Night of Champions.

    What will happen when these sexy, smart and powerful ladies collide? Can Mickie finally capitalize on her long-awaited title opportunity? Or will Maryse use all of her craftiness to her retain her championship?

    Re: WWE Night of Champions - Divas Champion Maryse vs. Mickie James

    I'm actually looking forward to this match, alot. Mickie is my favorite, always has been, and without being biased, i'm pretty damn sure she's taking that title. And some may think this is a typical 'I want that title' feud, but I don't think it is. It's like, Maryse cannot beat Mickie, she's avoiding her at all cost, running from her, being pinned by her, ect. Maryse basically cost Mickie the chance to face her a while back, and Maryse beat Kelly, and that is that, she was nothing more than a filler (thank god). Mickie has basically given the point that Maryse can't beat her, because she never has (unless you count SS but that was not a One vs One match). Maryse keeps backing herself away from Mickie, Maryse fears Mickie because she knows that she can't pin her, that and Mickie has nothing to prove.

    Mickie said on commentary how she has already won the Womens Title (though this is the Divas title), Michelle has taken the history, and in a sense this is about revenge too because Maryse sprayed something in Mickies eye a few weeks back. This feud has been interesting to say the least, because Mickie kept giving the chance to have Maryse prove something, and she wouldn't do it herself, so now Mickie is making her because of the Title match.

    It's intricate too, and WWE have planned this out perfectly by not dying out the feud by naming Mickie #1 contender so soon, and throwing in a swerve (Kelly). With Maryse on commentary, the backstage promos, ect, this isn't much about the Title, it's Maryse having to prove something. Needless to say, I love it. My hope here is that with this whole 'having to prove something', at the end of the Title match, (if Mickie wins), Mickie will give Maryse her hand and pull her up, as if to say 'Well Done, you put up a fight', and we could see a face-turn from Maryse because lets face, she gets zero reaction as a heel, and with Gail Kim coming on and getting no face-reaction, we should see a heel turn from her. But hey, I have no idea, so lets just see how this match plays out.

    Good post, Roxy. It's kind of refreshing to see someone take the women's division as seriously as you did.. I have to agree that they've booked this feud really well so far.. actually took some time with it.

    I'm not sure Mickie wins though. She's had the upper hand the entire time.. I can see Maryse cheating her way through it.

    I'll agree with the above, the slow build up in recent months between the two has been excellent however for the match itself I'm not going to be setting the bar too high

    I agree the match itself doesn't look like a 5 star bout, because it won't be. However, in the first singles match between the two, it was more than obvious they where holding back, alot. Honestly, if they give this match at least 8 minutes, and Maryse wrestles (lets face it, she shows-boats alot), and she wrestles the way she did at Survivor Series, then this match could be pretty damn good. I could also see Maryse retaining, and then Mickie finally getting the title at Summerslam, Maryse is yet to establish herself properly on Raw, and what with it being too predictable that Mickie will win, third times the charm, Maryse has just of big of chance as winning as Mickie.

    I can't see Mickie winning the title just yet. Purely because McCool was the first female to win both titles. I think they'll push that accolade for a couple of weeks at least.

    Yeah, thinking about it, me either. I reckon Maryse is retaining, and Mickie is gonna put Maryse over and Maryse will finally establish herself properly on Raw.

    These two are certainly far more interesting than McCool and Melina, and I'm still peeved that McCool took the Women's Title before Mickie (the actual wrestler, and established talent) got the Diva's belt, but this fued has been built well.

    I see Maryse taking the win with underhanded tactics and a possible rematch at Summerslam, or on Raw in the future, for Mickie to take the belt.

    They will then, hopefully, have Mickie and Michelle fued and have Mickie bury her.

    I don't really mean that, burying any talent (however little they may have) is always bad for business. I just bitter Michelle "I Love Swimming" McCool is the first to have held both belts, as well as the first ever to hold the Diva's Title.

    I like Michelle, but this is where I always agree with people who dislike her. Don't get me wrong, i'm a fan of McCools, however i've always felt that she shouldn't ever be the first to hold both titles. It's one thing she took history by being the FIRST to win the belt, and that i didn't really care for, but to hold both over a dedicated worker like Mickie James i don't like one bit. Blame her relationship with Taker, blame Vince, blame booking, i don't care, Michelle should never have been the first.

    Mickie James worked her ass off on the circuits for 5 or 6 years, working for something like $30 a show. She refused to take money from her parents when they offered it, and pressured herself into those 'photos' as a last resort. Over 10 years later, she had the chance to have a GOOD piece of history, but no, they decided to let her keep the history she already had; the shortest womens title reign, ever.

    I don't understand why they couldn't have held Michelles win off until Night of Champions. It wouldn't have done much damage, and would have established Melina a bit on her brand (seeing as she IS the top face on there). That and both Mickie and Michelle could have won on the same night, WWE could count it as a draw, or they could have even had a winner take all tag match.

    Finally, Mickie beats Michelle in the ring by miles, and is far more experienced, sharper, bolder, charismatic, fun to watch and gets a reaction which alot of the time is on par with some of the top face males. Not only that, but not many people will actually care Michelle held both titles, but we all know that if Mickie held both, people would give a damn.

    Honestly, I'd love to say that people would care more about Mickie winning both Titles, but I doubt it'd be many more than care about Michelle winning. It's tragic but Women's wrestling, and Diva's especially, are seen as piss-breaks, and very few people outside of the hardcore audience (and even then it's a pretty small percentage) even care about it. Sure more of them would care, but percentages wise it's not exactly a huge one.

    Re: WWE Night of Champions - Divas Champion Maryse vs. Mickie James

    I'd certainly care more if Mickie won, and I think people would care simply because she is the most over female in the company right now, and has been for years. People don't give a rats ass about Michelle, casuals that is, because she gets practically no reaction. This probably makes me look like a HUGE hypocrite because i was defending her in another thread, lol, but this is about holding both titles, not Michelles in-ring skills, anyways, it's a shame what has become of female wrestling. If i'm serious for a second, believe it or not, WWE do have a talented roster, and it's scary what they could produce if they learned how to book. But if they keep pushing Divas like Kelly down our throat, a girl who is still green and has been for nearly 3 years now, it wont work. Last year the division was looking alright, you had Mickie/Katie, Michelle/Nattie and Beth/Melina, but what happened? They jobbed out Nattie, dropped Katie, and Melina got injured, it fell apart. It seems WWE are trying to pick up from last year but with different feuds, and its nothing special, but it's alot better than the frenzy 2 minute Tag Matches we got. Sad part is here that they have put Kelly on the Raw intro, we may just see her being pushed even more.........joy.

    Re: WWE Night of Champions - Divas Champion Maryse vs. Mickie James

    Exactly.

    The problem with Maryse is that nobody really cares that she's champion. She has a fantastic character, she has bags of charisma, but that doesn't get any heat, and she's a heel. The whole point of being a heel is to get the crowd to hate you, Maryse gets wolf whistles, and cheers from guys. Right now, the title is just an accessory to her ring attire. If you get no reaction, then the crowd doesn't care. My problem with people is that they treat the title like crap. Fair enough it looks really stereotypical, but it's a new title, and people would moan that one title between three shows was stupid. If you didn't have two titles, then one show would have a focus, and the other wouldn't.

    I can see Maryse going over Mickie at Night of Champions simply because Maryse still needs to establish herself. If the rumours that Vince is high on Maryse are true, then i'll double those odds. Mickie will end up with the title, maybe at Raw the next night, but either way, I think Maryse has got this in the bag. Mickie went over over twice *highlight for spoiler* actually three times because of Raw next week. You don't do that for nothing, because with Mickie going over like that already, it weakens the champion, and it also makes the win alot less meaningful.

    As for holding both titles, it's a real big shame that Mickie wasn't the first to hold both. Michelle McCool technically beat Mickie James, they where indirectly competiting to hold both, but if you notice, Michelle was the one pushing the history thing, not Mickie. Whilst on commentary, Mickie was pushing Maryse being afraid of her, and that goes back to my other post, it's not a typical 'Me want title' feud. Michelle beat Mickie, and she didn't even do it in an exciting way.

    Well I will be live for this one, and I hope to see Mickie walk out as the champ. But I am not sure, Mickie seems to have way to much over Maryse right now, so I don't know where they are going with this.

    Anyways I hope Mickie leaves the champ, and if Maryse leaves as champ...I atleast hope for a good match. The McCool match...will be my piss break (Being that she will defend her title)

    Mickie has had booking similar to Michelle, obviously its not as strong, but Mickie isn't showing any sign of backing down, but it's not a bad thing; it's the typical dominant look they give to a contender, Mickie wants to fight Maryse, but Maryse wont; therefore it's not knocking Maryses credibility like it did with Melina. Melina had to fight, Maryse didn't up until now. Either way, if Mickie is going over, then great, if Maryse is, great then too. My only problem with Mickie not going over, is that it'll make the past two months look pointless. Mickie has won Maryse twice, she's beaten Rosa on many occasions, she even had a win over Beth Phoenix, it'd be a huge push down if Maryse where to have a win, but at the same time, it depends on how she retains. As I said in another post, I wouldn't be surprised if they turned Maryse face, seeing as the face side of Raw is very weak, they have three Divas, and Maryse gets zero reaction as a heel. Though it'll be argued she wont pull off a face character as well as a heel one.
