Tara goes for the Widow's peak, but Mickie rolls through out of it and goes right into a single leg crab, but she holds on to Tara's hair, so she's forced to break it. Tara rolls out to the floor and drags Mickie out after her. They both grab each other by the hair and fight back into the ring where the referee breaks it up. Tara goes right back to it and sends Mickie across the ring by her hair before choking her against the bottom rope.
Tara hits a beautiful suplex and rolls over into a guillotine choke before grabbing at Mickie's hair. Tara kicks at Mickie and chokes her with her boot. Tara gloats for a bit, and it allows Mickie to get a couple of shots in. Mickie grabs Tara in a headscissors and takes her over the top to the outside. James is on the apron and she jumps off, launching herself Thesz press style into Tara. Mickie rolls Tara into the ring and follows with a top rope missile dropkick. Mickie goes for the chick kick, but Tara pulls her down into a splits and kicks her over.
Tara goes for another suplex but Mickie floats over. Mickie tries for a suplex of her own, but Tara picks her up and seats her on the top turnbuckle. Tara slips and ends up straddling James, and they fight for a bit before they both tumble to the outside in a pretty nasty looking spot. On the outside, both women immediately go right back for the hair. Mickie whips Tara back first into the ring,and to retaliate she hits a bit chop to Mickie's chest. Both women fight up toward the entrance ramp area and into the crowd. Tara sends Mickie into a wall and both women continue to fight.
