Today in History: Ivory vs. Luna Vachon in a Hardcore Match, Chyna vs. Jeff Jarrett for the IC Title at Unforgiven 1999


On this day in history:

September 26th, 1999 | Two big women’s matches took place at Unforgiven 1999: one a Hardcore match, the other a title bout. Only a few weeks prior, Ivory retained her Women’s Title in the first Divas Hardcore match against Tori, and she was determined to do the same against Luna Vachon. The fight took them to a copier machine, a forklift and a dust pan, whose metal handle was used to put Luna down for the count after a failed bit of interference by Tori.

Earlier in the night, Chyna took on Intercontinental Champion Jeff Jarret with the title on the line. After interference from the likes of the Fabulous Moolah, Mae Young, The Kat and Debra, Chyna appeared to have won her first IC Title, being awarded the belt after pinning Jarrett. The call was reversed, though, when an instant replay showed Debra hitting Jarrett with his guitar. The decision was reversed, and the IC Title was returned to Jarrett.
