Today in History: Miss Kitty wins the Women’s Title, Chyna loses the IC Title at Armageddon 1999

On this day in history:

December 12th, 1999 | At Armageddon 1999, Women’s Champion Ivory was less than pleased to be defending her title in an Evening Gown Swimming Pool match. Her opponents Barbara Bush, Jacqueline and Miss Kitty were less appalled. The Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young were there to officiate the match, watching as Jacqueline and Barbara were eliminated before Kitty stripped Ivory and became the new Women’s Champion. The new champ then took a celebratory dip in the pool sans-dress, topping it all off by taking off her top.

Kitty was also present when Chyna defended the Intercontinental Title against Chris Jericho. Jericho put an end to Chyna’s historic first reign as IC Champion with the Walls of Jericho, forcing her to tap out. It wouldn’t be long before Chyna regained the title, though. Half of it, anyway.
