Today in History: Lita defeats Stephanie McMahon for the Women’s Championship


On this day in history:

August 21st, 2000 | Lita had been unsuccessfully chasing Stephanie McMahon‘s Women’s Title for a long, frustrating period, Stephanie using every tool in her kit to keep Lita at bay. Finally, the odds seemed to be in Lita’s favor: a Women’s Title match was booked for the night’s main event and The Rock was appointed the guest referee. The Rock was able to keep a sharp eye on HHH and Kurt Angle at ringside, and Matt and Jeff Hardy eventually turned up to officially even the odds. Meanwhile, in the ring, Lita dominated the match. Thanks to her skill advantage (and some aggressive refereeing by The Rock), Lita was able to win the match and finally capture the Women’s Title.
