Mickie James def. Lita (new Women's Champion)

Backstage at Philadelphia's sold-out Wachovia Center, Lita reiterated the promise she made on last Monday's Raw: that she would defeat Mickie James at Survivor Series, and one-up Trish Stratus by retiring as "the greatest Women's Champion ever." Too bad she wasn't expecting for her career to end on her back, for Mickie to lighten her of the Women's Championship—or for Cryme Tyme to lighten her of rather-personal belongings.

Most of the 17, 893 in attendance chanted "Lita's done for," but it sure didn't look like that throughout most of the contest; the four-time Women's Champion dominated early and often, delivering what looked like the final blow with a devastating Moonsault. Incredibly, a resilient Mickie somehow kicked out before referee Jack Doan counted to three, and then rallied back with a modified Tornado DDT to pull off an upset victory that brought the sold-out crowd to their feet.

Mickie was practically in tears as she exited the ring with her second Women's Championship in 2006, while a disgusted Lita remained in the ring, venting her outrage at the "disrespectful" Philadelphia fans. That is, until Cryme Tyme's Shad and JTG came out with a carton of her personal items. Having stolen them from her dressing room prior to the match, they declared a "'Ho Sale" on Lita's panties, an ointment to combat yeast infections, and even her box, which JTG declared was "cheap and wide, and you can put your head in it." As the humiliated Diva left the ring one last time, a few of her loyalists could be heard shouting, "Thank you, Lita."

The new Women's Champion was not so appreciative. "After the hell Lita's put me through, she deserved what she got," she told WWE.com backstage. Still clearly elated about her big Survivor Series win, Mickie James admits she has no idea what the future holds next for her. "I'm going to defend my title, try to be an awesome Women's Champion, and do the best that I can. That's all I can do."
