Today in History: The First Diva Search Contestants Debut

On this day in history:

July 19th, 2004 | A few days after the casting special aired, the 10 finalists for the first-ever Diva Search made their official debuts. The women, including eventual winner Christy Hemme, Maria Kanellis and Michelle McCool, appeared on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel to introduce themselves and were told to ransack GM Eric Bischoff’s office for an envelope that would earn them immunity from the first elimination. As it turned out, there was no envelope waiting for them, only an irate Eric Bischoff who told the ladies to take a hike.
