Today in History: Nikki Bella wins her first Divas Title

On this day in history:

April 23rd, 2012 | Upon scoring a non-title victory over Divas Champion Beth Phoenix, Nikki Bella earned herself a shot at the title. A few weeks later, that title shot took place in a Lumberjill match. The ring was surrounded by female Superstars, including Nikki’s sister Brie. Beth’s bad leg would be her downfall, allowing her to be unceremoniously rolled up and pinned by Nikki. Just like that, Nikki Bella was the new Divas Champion.

What are your memories of this moment?
