Today in History: Winter wins the Knockouts Championship

On this day in history:

August 7th, 2011 | Winter was one of those women in wrestling who, though she deserved it, never seemed to make it to the top of the mountain. That is, until 2011’s Hardcore Justice, when – with Angelina Love by her side – she faced and defeated Knockouts Champion Mickie James, pinning her after spitting a mysterious liquid into her eyes that sent her into hysterics. Finally, Winter held a major singles title. Unfortunately for her, the reign wouldn’t last more than a few weeks, and though she would win the title back rather quickly, that reign too was short-lived.

What are your memories of this moment?
