As the match concluded, Velvet went for a flying headscissors, but hurt her ailing knee further while attempting the maneuver. James subsequently clipped Velvet's knee and hit her with a DDT to score the pinfall victory and the title.
Villainous and absent-due-to-pregnancy Knockout Madison Rayne praised James for her move. She wrote on Twitter, "FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY!!!! @MickieJames showed her pissed off side! Even saw a momentary look of craziness on her face!!!"
Between WWE and TNA Wrestling, James is now a record-setting nine-time female champion in national wrestling (she is trailed by Trish Stratus, who held the WWE Women's Championship seven times, and fellow Knockout Tara, a two-time WWE Women's Champion and five-time TNA Women's Knockout Champion). She is also the only person to hold the WWE Women's, WWE Divas and TNA Knockout Championships in wrestling history.
