CHICAGO -- The wait is over for Beth Phoenix. The overwhelming size and strength of the Glamazon could be denied no longer. In front of a capacity crowd at the Allstate Arena, Phoenix defeated Candice Michelle, obliterating any doubts about her dominance and emerging victorious in her drive to capture the Women's Championship. 

Despite throwing every ounce of energy she had at the Glamazon, former Women's Champion Candice Michelle simply could not overcome the size and strength advantage enjoyed by Phoenix, who pinned the Candy-coated Diva after a powerful cradle suplex.

For weeks, critics wondered whether or not Phoenix had the ability to capitalize on her strengths. Some even raised the question of performance anxiety to explain away Phoenix's loss at Unforgiven, when she let the gold slip through her crushing fingers at the last minute. But after weeks of speculation that she wasn't living up to her potential, the Glamazon silenced any critics on Sunday night. 

"I am the most perfect being on the face of the earth," Phoenix declared in a post-match interview. "I have ushered in the era of the Glamazon!"
