On this day in history, 5 years ago, the 3 Horsewomen made their main roster debuts in what would be considered the beginning of the women’s revolution. What was initially just the latest victory parade for the conniving trio of The Bella Twins and Alicia Fox was quickly spoiled by an appearance by Stephanie McMahon. The queen bee of WWE wasn’t very much impressed with the Divas Champion’s posturing, and decided to introduce some “change” in the Divas division by bringing out Paige … and some backup from NXT in the form of Becky Lynch and Charlotte.
When Naomi and Tamina took issue with their exclusion, Stephanie brought out NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks to round out their own squad. Having “set the table of opportunity,” Stephanie dared the Divas to take it for themselves. What followed was an all-out brawl between the present and future Divas that culminated in each member of Team Bella locked in the NXT Divas’ submission holds: Charlotte’s Figure-Eight Leglock, Becky’s Dis-arm-her, and Sasha’s Bank Statement.
