This week, we’re asking this: With Raw 1000 coming up next week, we want to know: what do you think is the Divas’ best Raw moment? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!
Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Erin giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Erin: The moment that sticks in my mind for various reasons is the Raw main event Women’s Title match between Lita and Stephanie McMahon. For several weeks Stephanie had managed to keep Lita at bay in various creative ways, but this match forced her to finally face Lita one-on-one, and outside interference was limited given that The Rock was serving as referee. Stephanie finally got what was coming to her; Lita finally won the Women’s Title; and The Rock, Kurt Angle, HHH and the Hardys all made memorable appearances in a moment that not only served to make the Divas more important, but also to give integrity to the Women’s Title.

Then the week after when they had a singles match. One of my favoritest matches!
|Brandon Bray | Besides Lita vs. Trish main eventing Raw, I loved it when Victoria turned heel on the model Divas in a bikini contest beat the holy piss out of them, plus giving Jerry Lawler one of the deadliest low blows I have ever seen.|
|Francisco Mata | In my opinion the best moment was when Mickie James won the Women’s Title from Beth Phoenix. I mean, you had Beth Phoenix who at the time was the “Alpha Female” that nobody could defeat until Mickie James rolled her up for the victory. I still remember seeing the crowd reaction and i was amazed by that moment!|
|Josue Guzman | I can think of so many great Diva moments coming from Raw. While it is easy to include moments involving Trish Stratus or Lita, as they are considered to be two of the greatest females ever in WWE history, I’m actually going to take a different route and say one of the best Diva’s Raw moments came from the original Diva, Sable.
It was during Sable’s feud with Jacqueline. The Sunday before Raw, Sable and Jacqueline faced each other in that infamous bikini contest, where Sable only had handprints covering her breasts. Sable appeared to have won the bikini contest based on the audience’s applause, though no winner was ever announced due to Mr. McMahon’s interference. It was decided the winner would be announced the following night on Raw.
That night on Raw, Jacqueline was declared the winner due to Sable’s disqualification of not wearing a real bikini. Sable, who was still receiving strong pops from the crowd, called out Mr. McMahon to the ring. Once in the ring, McMahon talks down on Sable but just as Vince turns around to leave the ring Sable gives him not one but two middle fingers and the crowd just goes wild! Truly a classic Raw moment coming from the Original Diva.
