Trish Stratus wins her first Women’s Championship


November 18th, 2001 | At Survivor Series 2001, Trish Stratus, Jacqueline, Lita, Ivory, Mighty Molly and the debuting Jazz did battle in a Six-Pack Challenge for the vacant Women’s Title. The title had been unclaimed for months since Chyna retired with the belt. In a ending that shocked many, the underdog Trish hit the Stratusfaction on Ivory to pin her and become the Women’s Champion for the very first time. Trish would go on to hold the title six more times over the course of her career.

Also occurring today in history:
* 11/18/07 – Kelly Kelly, Maria Kanellis, Michelle McCool, Mickie James & Torrie Wilson defeated Beth Phoenix, Jillian Hall, Layla, Melina & Victoria at Survivor Series 2007.
* 11/18/12 – Eve Torres defeats Kaitlyn to retain the Divas Title at Survivor Series 2012.

What are your memories of this moment?


    • I remember seeing this and nearly being in tears because as you said, Trish was the rookie in the match. I really wanted Ivory to win, though in retrospect that was never going to happen.

      I was completely taken aback by Jazz. I had no idea who she was and the way she took Lita down was epic. It did bother me that Torrie & Stacy were the MVP of (Ladies of) The Alliance storylines and omitted here, though we definitely got a better match this way.
