Today In History: Naomi Makes History At WrestleMania 33 (April 2, 2017)

On this day in history, 3 years ago, Naomi made history when she became the first African-American woman to win a championship at WrestleMania. After an injury forced her to relinquish the title she won at WWE Elimination Chamber, Naomi battled back to return to ring action last week and become a two-time champion. She also left the WWE Universe basking in her glow at The Ultimate Thrill Ride.

The Glow Queen bested the champion Alexa Bliss, Natalya, Carmella, Becky Lynch and Mickie James in a Six-Pack Challenge. As the action continued outside the squared circle, Naomi took advantage by launching herself over the top rope and onto all five of her fellow competitors. In the end, Naomi cinched in the unforgiving maneuver, and ultimately left a pained Bliss no choice but to tap out. Naomi made her hometown proud that night.
