Today In History: Nikki Bella Wins Her First Divas Championship (April 23, 2012)

On this day in history, 8 years ago, Nikki Bella shocked the WWE Universe by defeating Phoenix and ended her 200-plus-day reign as Divas Champion. In one of her first acts of business as Executive Administrator, Eve turned a regular contest between Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and Nikki Bella into a Lumberjill Match. The Lumberjills played a big role in the clash, as they ganged up on The Glamazon after she sprained her ankle jumping off the ring apron. Phoenix attempted to fight through the painful ankle injury and paid dearly for it. Nikki rolled up The Glamazon to begin her first reign with the Butterfly title.
