Today in History: Team Xtreme is Born

On this day in history:

May 25th, 2000 | Essa Rios had been going through a string of losses, which he seemed to blame on his manager Lita. When he suffered yet another loss, this time at the hands of Matt Hardy, he cracked, attacking Lita after the match. He hit her with a powerbomb and a moonsault before the Hardyz returned, taking him out and carrying Lita to the back. This, of course, would mark the inception of one of the WWE’s most famous teams: Team Xtreme, that is.
