Mickie James got her opportunity to challenge for the Raw Women’s Championship this week on WWE Monday Night Raw.
Before the match, Mickie James gave an interview and she said that this may be her last opportunity to challenge for the title so this was played up that her days in the ring could be coming to an end. That is ridiculous since James is only 41 and there are wrestlers much older than her that have been given title opportunities and many others who have won titles.
They put on a pretty good match but there was a strange ending. They were doing some mat work and then all of a sudden the referee stopped the match and declared that Asuka was the winner because Mickie James could no longer continue. James had a confused look on her face because that was clearly not supposed to be the finish. It looked like James was supposed to tap out to the Asuka Lock but James reversed her way out of it.
After the match, Zelina Vega walked out to the ring and got in Asuka’s face. They slapped each other to start their feud. It looks like Vega vs. Asuka is the next program for the Raw Women’s Title.
