Today in History: Stephanie McMahon vs. Vince McMahon in an “I Quit” Match at No Mercy 2003


On this day in history:

October 19th, 2003 | Tension between Stephanie McMahon and her father Vince McMahon over his relationship with Sable built to what was dubbed the first-ever “Father/Daughter ‘I Quit’ match” at No Mercy 2003. As per the match’s stipulation, whoever lost the match would be forced to leave the WWE. Vince had Sable by his side, while Stephanie had her mother Linda McMahon in her corner. Vince dominated much of the match, but Stephanie held on until she found herself being mercilessly choked with a lead pipe. Linda couldn’t watch any longer and threw in the towel on her daughter’s behalf. After suffering the loss, Stephanie disappeared from WWE television for two years.
