Women's Championship - Victoria

November 17, 2002 - March 30, 2003

Victoria debuted with WWE in early July of 2002 and she began targeting Trish Stratus almost immediately. She scored an upset win in their first encounter and haunted her until they finally met up for the Women's Championship at Survivor Series in a Hardcore Match. The fire extinguisher proved to be Victoria's weapon of choice as she clocked the champ and then suplexed her to become Women's Champion for the first time. Victoria would go on to have a lengthy title reign of four and a half months.
