    Today in History: Ivory vs. Tori in a Hardcore Match

    On this day in history:

    September 6th, 1999 | Tori had combined insult with injury when she defeated Ivory in an Evening Gown match, but this time history was being made in what was deemed the first female Hardcore match. Ivory’s Women’s Title was on the line as they fought from the bathroom to the hallway, using such foreign objects as shampoo, cement walls and projectile tampons. It was a mirror that settled it, though, when it was smashed over Tori’s head. Ivory pinned her and retained her title, but she wasn’t satisfied with that. She grabbed a nearby iron, choked Tori with its cord, and pressed the still-hot instrument onto her back until the officials tore her away.
