This Week in History: Lita Gets Busted Open, DQed, Dumped & Fired, Divas Pay Tribute to Eddie Guerrero & 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…

November 19th, 2000 | At 2000’s Survivor Series, a relatively normal Women’s Title match between Lita and Ivory turned unforgettable when the heel of Ivory’s boot cut open Lita’s forehead. As the match progressed, her face became more and more obscured by her blood, and though Lita fought valiantly, Ivory managed to squeak out a victory and retain her title. In one of the most iconic images in Diva history, Lita received a standing ovation from the crowd as the referee helped her to the back.

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