Today in History: Lita & Stephanie’s Main Event Title Match

On this day in history:

August 21st, 2000 | Lita had been unsuccessfully chasing Stephanie McMahon‘s Women’s Title for a long, frustrating period, Stephanie using every tool in her kit to keep Lita at bay. Finally, the odds seemed to be tipping in Lita’s favor. A Women’s Title match was booked, dubbed the night’s main event and The Rock was appointed the guest referee, keeping a sharp eye on HHH and Kurt Angle at ringside. The Hardy Boyz eventually turned up as well. Meanwhile, in the ring, Lita dominated the match and, thanks to some agressive refereeing by The Rock, was able to win the match and finally capture the Women’s Title.
