Today in History: Michelle McCool Becomes the First Divas Champion

On this day in history:

July 20th, 2008 | At 2008’s Great American Bash, Michelle McCool and Natalya went head-to-head for the right to become the first Divas Champion. It was the battle of the submission holds, and Michelle’s heel lock prevailed, prompting Natalya to tap out. With one stroke of the palm, Michelle landed in the history books as the first ever Divas Champion. Ever the history-maker, Michelle would also become the first woman to have held both the Women’s and Divas Titles one year later.

What are your memories of this moment?
