Today in History: Beth Phoenix vs. Melina at Royal Rumble 2009

January 25th, 2009 | At 2009’s Royal Rumble, “The Glamazon” Beth Phoenix defended her Women’s Title against Melina. Beth did her best to thwart Melina, tossing her around like a rag doll and twisting her like a pretzel, at one point making her kick herself in the back of the head. However, a fast reversal into a roll-up pin earned Melina the win and the right to call herself the new Women’s Champion. This would mark the start of Melina’s third and final run with the title.
