Mickie v Katie at NoC.
I am a little behind on watching this one, and this Tube video quality sucks (I have the PPV on DVD, and I think I might rip it to high quality .avi and post on Veoh). But I really, really enjoyed this match! Fast-paced from the first minute, some nice spots, good drama, and a fairly hot crowd for a Divas match. This Katie seems to really have something, and Mickie looked fantastic as usual. Three thoughts:
1. Do you think Mickie really hurt her shoulder/arm a bit, or was she just power-selling? I would say she did hurt it based on how she acted as she walked backstage. Lots of non-fake-looking wincing. Nice psychology from Katie to keep working that arm, and I thought Mickie's struggle and eventual arm-dragged escape from the submission hold was a nice piece of matwork on both their parts.
2. Isn't it interesting that Mickie is now the Queen who has to be taken down? It was just nigh-on 4 years ago that psycho-Mickie debuted to challenge the then-Queen Trish. I'm so proud of my girl and all she's done -- she's the one who first got me to loving women's rasslin, I think with her Mania 22 win. . .
3. I like Katie's feud with Mickie, but I am obligated to cheer against her. When she moves on to someone else (and she might have already -- I haven't seen the last 3 or 4 RAWs yet), then I think I will be on her side.
