Today in History: Miss Kitty Wins the Women’s Championship at Armageddon 1999

On this day in history:

December 12th, 1999 | At Armageddon 1999, Women’s Champion Ivory was less than pleased to be defending her title in an Evening Gown Swimming Pool match. Her opponents Barbara Bush, Jacqueline and Miss Kitty were less appalled. The Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young were there to officiate the match and mourn their legacy. Jacqueline was first eliminated, followed by Barbara. Almost too easily, Kitty then stripped Ivory and became the new Women’s Champion. The new champ then took a celebratory dip in the pool sans-dress, topping it all off by taking off her top. The Attitude Era, ladies and gentlemen!
