Except if Vin Gerard had won the Chikara title, i would probably have reacted the same : WTF.
(and I agree, Melissa doesn't need the title. But Saraya doesn't either. The same way Bully Ray doesn't need a title run to be over and a tremendous heel in TNA)
I just remembered there's another part of it that I didn't bring up: This is the second Cheerleader Melissa feud that involves other companies. The Wesna one being the first.
So the build up wasn't just from the weekend. This is about five years worth.
I hope somebody, whether that's Saraya, or someone else, brings up WHY Saraya hates Cheerleader Melissa so much. Because kayfabe wise, it isn't because of the belt.
It's because during their 2007 feud in another fed, not did Melissa beat down Saraya, she also beat up a then 14 year old Britani Knight. Then months later, there was an infamous brawl between them that caused Saraya's knee to complete tear, a near career ending injury (which Melissa may have further damaged).
So yeah, the two have history. And that history connects with what happened last weekend. The majority of Saraya's submissions and attacks on everyone she fought against that weekend, including Melissa, were at the knees. That's where she injured Melissa, and with a lionstamer, that's how she won.
However, I found this out via research and hearsay. I WISH SHIMMER would explain this though.
