It has been exactly eleven years to the day that Mickie James captured her first WWE Divas Championship.
It was on July 26, 2009, that Mickie James would defeat Maryse at the Night of Champions pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to capture her first WWE Divas Championship. She would go on to hold the belt for 79 days before dropping it to Jillian Hall during an episode of RAW.
This wasn’t James’ first taste of WWE gold. She had captured the WWE Women’s Championship on four occasions prior to her Divas Championship win.
