Mickie James Talks Accidentally Winning a Title at Live Event, Piggy James Angle

Mickie James Talks Accidentally Winning a Title at Live Event, Piggy James Angle
Mickie James is a six-time champion in WWE but one of those wasn't supposed to happen as she remind in an interview with Ring The Belle.

At a live event in 2007 James took part in a triple-threat match along with Victoria and then-champion Melina. James ended up pinning Victoria for the victory, and thus the title, and everyone involved appeared surprised at the three-count.

WWE quickly made an audible and scheduled another match at that same event in which Melina then pinned James to regain her title. It is the shortest Women's Championship reign in WWE history and James recalled that match.

"What happened in Paris, I don't know if I should speak because there were three parts, four parts to this match including the referee. Five if we include [agent] Ricky Steamboat," stated James. "It was obviously a triple threat match and Melina was the champion. [Victoria] was out there and I made the cover and the three-count happened. It was like the championship was not heard around the world. It is in the history books though because I demanded it."

One of the most controversial storylines that James had to endure was when WWE poked fun at her weight and had LayCool call her Piggy James. Bullying angles in WWE is nothing new and James admits that it was tough for everyone involved in the storyline.

"It was hard at the moment and I think it was hard for everyone in order to do it. There would be times I was like, 'Oh I think this might be a little too far.' But I will say the end goal was to get Michelle and Layla over as monster heels – and as the big heels – and I think it was very successful in that retrospect. I think that for a generation of people, especially now with speaking out and anti-bullying, it's given people the power of their voice because words are so powerful," said James.
