When Jacqueline took the stage, she took fans on the journey to her history-making Women’s Title win, sharing that she first entered the businesses by answering an ad in TV Guide looking for wrestlers. That led her to a gym in Dallas, where she made her first friendships in the wrestling business.
Jackie expressed her gratitude towards the WWE for giving her the opportunity to compete on a grand stage, calling her second Women’s Title win the pinnacle of her career. She went on to thank the fans, her friends and family, as well as her fellow Divas Trish Stratus, Lita, Molly Holly, Terri Runnels, Victoria and Sable.
Congratulations to Jacqueline on this hard-earned honor!
