Today in History: Eddie Guerrero “accidentally” defeats Chyna for the IC Title

On this day in history:

September 4th, 2000 | Not long after winning the Intercontinental Title for the second time, Chyna was set to defend the belt against Kurt Angle. Eddie Guerrero, claiming he was concerned for his Mamacita’s well-being, convinced Commissioner Mick Foley to make it into a Triple Threat match so he could protect her in the ring. Near the end of the match, when Kurt hit Chyna with the IC Title belt, Eddie was so upset that he (after disposing of Angle), hugged Chyna while her shoulders were pinned to the mat. The referee counted it as a pin, crowning Guerrero the new Intercontinental Champion.
