Today In History: Miss WrestleMania Divas Battle Royal (April 5, 2009)

On this day in history, 11 years ago, the first-ever Divas Battle Royal took place at WrestleMania 25. Joining the Divas of the present at the time, former Divas Joy Giovanni, Miss Jackie, Molly Holly, Sunny, the recently-retired Victoria and Torrie Wilson all made their way to the ring in hopes of once more achieving WWE glory on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

As one Diva after the next was strewn on the floor outside the ring, it came down to Beth Phoenix and Women’s Champion Melina. As Beth Phoenix attempted to throw Melina out of the ring, Santina Marella flipped The Glamazon to the floor, eliminating both to win the match. Santina was then crowned by Candice Michelle much to the chagrin of Phoenix outside the ring.
