Today in History: Beth Phoenix Wins Her First Women’s Championship

On this day in history:

October 7th, 2007 | Women’s Champion Candice Michelle managed to best Beth Phoenix at 2007’s Unforgiven, but by the time No Mercy came around, the Glamazon was ready. Though Candice put up a tough fight, she just couldn’t match the drive of her challenger. The Glam Slam had yet to be added to Beth’s repertoire, so a Fisherman’s Suplex was the move she chose to put Candice down for the count. It worked, and a 3-count later, Beth was crowned the new Women’s Champion. Thus began the first of several WWE title reigns for the Glamazon.

What are your memories of this moment?

Also occurring today in history:
* 10/7/88 – Rockin’ Robin defeats Sensational Sherri to win the WWF Women’s Title. Robin’s would be the final reign before the title was deactivated in 1990.
