In a moment reminiscent of WrestleMania 22, Mickie James and Chelsea Green shared a kiss during their match on IMPACT.
Once great friends, Mickie James and Chelsea Green are now bitter rivals after Green turned on her friend. Their husbands Nick Aldis and Matt Cardona have gotten involved in the feud in the past.
On the latest episode of IMPACT, James and Green faced off once more, looking to seal their feud with a final grudge match. As the bout started, Green attempted to play mind games by planting a kiss on her opponent, but James responded with a longer kiss of her own.
Green tweeted during the show that her opponent loved the smooch.
She 👏🏼 loved 👏🏼 it. https://t.co/1yGd7zAqKf

The moment was reminiscent of James’ WrestleMania 22 bout against Trish Stratus, which also began with a kiss.
In the end, Green cheated to defeat James as she had her feet on the ropes during the pinfall. After the bout, Gia Miller interviewed Mickie James, who said she was only as good as her last match and that she was going home, leading to speculation that she might be stepping away from IMPACT Wrestling.
