Today in History: Gail Kim vs. Maryse in the Divas Title Tournament Finals


On this day in history:

February 22nd, 2010 | After an untimely injury forced Divas Champion Melina to vacate the title, a tournament was held to crown the new champion. In the finals of this tourny, it came down to Gail Kim and Maryse. Their match, first scheduled to happen at Elimination Chamber, was postponed until the following night on Raw. Maryse won the match after planting Gail with the French Kiss, becoming the first two-time Divas Champion. She wasn’t destined to match her previous stint as champ, though, which long held the record for the title’s lengthiest reign at 216 days. This one would last only 49 days.
