Just to clarify, do you mean to say Eddie brought that? or that he made it his own? Because Shawn Michaels was doing the rope thing years before Eddie was employed by WWE

Regarding your initial post, it's an interesting one I suppose. I never payed attention to Melina, so I thought Bret's comment was a bit off. After being dismissive of her, it's quite cool to see she had some skills and I could have payed more attention to her.

She did the splits and screamed a bit. All that influenced was my need for earplugs when watching women, not in the kitchen.

Re: Why is Melina's impact/influence ignored?

Her influence (which isn't as big as this post makes it seem) is ignored because Mickie James was around getting all the attention (mostly rightfully so) when Melina was there, which is something Melina herself had a problem with.

A fair amount of the stuff shown is simple or was being done prior to Melina. This for example:





That was being done by Big Show as early as 2001. It's different from the finisher Melina used, too.

Was Melina good? Yes, and she didn't really get the chance to shine as much as she should have, but that was an era where the women's wrestling was notoriously booked as being piss breaks.

Re: Why is Melina's impact/influence ignored?

The reason she's ignored is because her tenure was at a time where nothing about that division was presented as being memorable. Not the fault of the competitors at all.

Only thing I remember from her is, of course, the splits, her being hot as hell and that time when Hornswoggle was Vince's "son" and I'm assuming she was his gift from Vince, in the form of sex.

To be honest the best time in Melina's career is starting in January. We'll see what she brings to the table in LU season 2, personally I can't fucking wait.

Re: Why is Melina's impact/influence ignored?

I'm a big fan of hers, best move-set ever for any WWE Diva, I did this video for her about 6 years ago , I don't think I had to use the same move twice...



Mickie vs Melina could have been the next Trish vs Lita if they wanted to invest in them like they did with the latter two...

Many horrible decisions happened in WWE regarding the divas between 2006-2012, PLAYBOY WRESTLEMANIA MOMENTS, NO DIVAS SINGLES MATCH, RUINING MELINA VS MICKIE AT WM 23 FOR ASHLEY VS MELINA, WANTING CANDICE MICHELLE TO BE THE NEXT TRISH AND THEN SHE LEAVES, BETH PHOENIX FLOATING FROM IRRELEVANT TO DOMINANT GLAMAZON EACH YEAR, Michelle McCool and Layla GETTING A NON-STOP PUSH FOR 3 YEARS AND STILL NOT GETTING A REACTION..
