It has been exactly twelve years to the day that Michelle McCool made history by becoming the first-ever WWE Divas Champion.
It was on July 20, 2008, at The Great American Bash that Michelle McCool would submit Natalya and become the inaugural WWE Divas Champion. The wrestling legend was overcome with joy following the big win.
McCool would hold on to the belt for 155 days before losing it to Maryse in December of the same year. This wouldn’t be McCool’s only time with the gold, she would go on to win the Divas title once more, as well as winning the WWE Women’s Championship on two occasions.
Take a look back at McCool’s historic victory in the video below.
