Today in History: Stephanie McMahon & Zach Gowen vs. Big Show

On this day in history:

July 3rd, 2003 | Stephanie McMahon‘s issues with her father often brought her to some undesirable circumstances, and this time was no different. Stephanie hated Vince’s mistress Sable, and this conflict led to him booking her in a no-holds-barred, no DQ handicap match that teamed her with one-legged WWE hopeful Zach Gowen to face the Big Show. Vince watched at ringside as Big Show tossed Stephanie around, and when he got involved in the match himself, Stephanie slapped her father across the face. Big Show was about to avenge his boss with a chokeslam to Stephanie when Kurt Angle came to the rescue, setting it up so Zach could get the pin and, as per the stipulation of the match, earn himself a WWE contract.

    This was one of the best storylines WWE had. =) Zach was a great talent, his 1-legged moonsault was flawless.
