During the match, Melina unintentionally knocked Phoenix off of the ring apron, resulting in Phoenix abandoning Melina, which allowed James and Maria to pick up the win.
Later that night, Melina and Phoenix brawled in a backstage segment, ending their alliance.
A week later, Phoenix was formally introduced by Stratus and then attacked a distracted James on Stratus's behalf.
When James finally escaped, Phoenix claimed that James had "ruined her life", and would not let her get away with it, before calling her a "psycho".
Phoenix replaced Melina in a tag team match as Jillian Hall's partner, and the two lost to Candice Michelle and Mickie James.
