Lita wins WWE Womens Title
So yesterday afternoon, the WWE announced that there would be a WWE Womens Title match on RAW between Mickie James & Lita. There were two reactions to this. The first one was why Lita because she really hasn't been a wrestler for the last year and a half. The other is that they're both heels. Last night's RAW was near Mickie's home town of Richmond, VA so she would get a face pop anyway. Second, Lita is more over as a heel than Mickie. She draws a lot of heat. So the match itself was OK. Mickie did get cheered. She had to wrestle a different style because of that. Lita won the title when she heelishly hit Mickie in the head with the belt. So why Lita? Well, with the liklihood that both Trish Stratus & Lita are leaving the WWE by the end of September, the WWE wants to milk one last feud out of them. I can't say I blame them for that. They're both over and deserve to go out with a bang. Later in the show, Trish told Carlito that she was going after the title. So that's where they're going with it.
