PORTLAND, Ore. -- In a display of dominance, Women's Champion Beth Phoenix defeated Candice Michelle with a Glam Slam to retain her gold. WATCH

Ever since The Glamazon captured the title from Mickie James at SummerSlam, she has dominated both her opponents and the opponents of her boyfriend, Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella.

Tonight, Marella intervened, preventing a potential pinfall. But, he paid for it with a hard-hitting kick from Candice. Although Marella's help allowed Phoenix to escape the near pinfall, it proved to be a distraction to The Glamazon. But, not for long. As the match continued, The Glamazon mounted an offense that Candice could not stop.

In October 2007, Phoenix caused Candice to break her clavicle. Taking advantage of the previous injury, The Glamazon keyed in on Candice's shoulder. Her strategy proved successful.

But, in a No Mercy Live Blog exclusively on WWE.com shortly before her match, Candice was confident she could be the one to take down The Glamazon.

"I think I'm as ready as I can be. I think my previous matches have helped me get over the fear of another injury. I'm going in with some vengeance as my motivation," said Candice.

Despite Candice's positive words, it was Women's Champion Beth Phoenix who sent a message with her actions. All WWE Divas certainly took notice. The Glamazon is at the top of her game. If you want to take her down, it's going to take action, not words.
