This Week in History: Bra & Panties Title Match, Eve Wins the Diva Search, Halloween-Themed Matches & More

Welcome to Diva Dirt’s This Week in History, where each week we’ll take a look back at some of the most memorable moments in women’s wrestling from years gone by.

So, join us in taking a trip down memory lane…

October 28th, 1999 | After defeating Jeff Jarrett and winning the Intercontinental Championship, Chyna soon found a new foe in Chris Jericho. In the midst of his quest to take Chyna’s IC Title, Jericho faced off against “Chyna”, who was really Stevie Richards in drag. Cute, huh? Chyna thought so too–that’s why she showed up and cost Jericho the match with a shot to the face from her title belt. When Richards hugged her in gratitude, she socked him too, leaving both men lying in the ring.

What are your memories of this classic moment? Tell us in the comments…

    Good thing Eve won 2007’s competition, look at her now and the way she improved.

    I wonder if Brooke won, will she become another Barbie doll for the company?


      She wouldn’t have lasted in the company lol

    • JamieKym

      If brooke won, she would be in kelly Kelly’s spot right now.

    This week Eve won the Diva search and also lost to Beth @ Vengeance

  • K2Mark

    lmao at Victoria as a sumo wrestler, that was hilarious and made a nice change from the usual “sexy” Halloween outfits we see. Jillian as Britney was very funny too.

    • JillianHallTNA

      Did you noticed that Jillian was a singer twice? As Britney and as Elvis lol

  • JillianHallTNA

    Smackdown Halloween 2008 should be too!
    Natalya, Tara and Maryse vs Maria, Michelle and Brie Bella :)

      It wasnt this week though. It was 31st October

    You’ve got to think they’ll have some sort of Divas costume thing next Monday…either a contest that devolves into a brawl or a match of some sort (and I’m still saying that Maryse gets karate-chopped by Miss Piggy…) If it goes right, next week’s Raw could go down as one of the best in several years because of the possibilities…

  • MrMantastic

    The Bra n Panties match was GREAAAAT!!!!!!!!! Man Trish n Lita sure could deliver a sick sexy catfight!! Man Lita was Pounding Trish big time lol!!! Trish was hotter back then!!!!

    Too bad the part where Ivory from RTC comming out at the end calling them IMMORAL for wearing thongs isnt shown
    speaking of thongs…hey Stevie NICE THONG LMFAOO!! Chyna clobbed him in the head!!

  • LadyGoDiva

    Seeing that Knockouts brawl makes me wonder what if the Divas had their own backstage fight after seeing what happened at Vegeance?

  • JamieKym

    What do you mean? I wish the title was getting defended in a gimmick match except for a substance match.

  • ElectricMVx

    “IT’S BRITNEY BITCH” loooool

  • FoxyKimLover

    This was when I attended my first live Raw! Eve won the diva search that day and I had no clue who she was, but I’m glad it happened in Philly. Look at her now! I also remember the Halloween contest that night Victoria was a sumo wrestler lol gotta love Lisa!

  • EveLover

    I am so glad Eve won that DivaSearch . She is one of the best divas to come out of it .I am more than positive that she will continue to grow in the ring.

  • Envy

    I always look forward to Halloween to see what the Divas will wear. II enjoy a good ol’ Bra and Panties match if they’re as physical as the one between Trish and Lita.

  • _Bryan_

    i think the match between trish and lita was in 2000…anyways i thought the match between jericho and richards was hilarious. i really loved the fued between jericho and chyna, i thought it was one of his best, no matter whether he lked her or not

    • _Bryan_

      as far as the halloween contests, besides from killing the division they were hilarious. i literally cracked up laughing when i saw victoria. and i always thought kristal was mega hot.

  • Missy_BonBon

    I loved how Mickie won all costume contests at her time. Well except when she dressed up as Trish. but that didnt count since there was no voting. Anyways, she would have won last years if she want released. But glad she’s in TNA. I love her feud with Tara, Madison, and Sorta Winter. Victoria’s bansai drop to Brooke was L0L who knew 4 years later they would teamed up as T&T.
