Today in History: Lita and Ivory’s Bloody Survivor Series Match

On this day in history:

November 19th, 2000 | At 2000’s Survivor Series, Lita and Ivory went head-to-head for Ivory’s Women’s Championship. While it was a well fought match, its most memorable moment was unscripted: at one point, Ivory’s boot heel caught Lita on the eyebrow and cut her open. Soon enough, Lita’s face was a veritable “crimson mask”. Proving her toughness, she carried on with the rest of the match, and though she found herself on the losing end, her effort earned the respect of many. The image of her being helped to the back by the referee remains one of the most iconic shots in WWE history.
