Victoria Comments on Working the First-Ever Women’s Cage Match, More


During the latest edition of Lilian Garcia’s “Chasing Glory” podcast, former WWE “Diva” Victoria commented on being involved in the first-ever WWE women’s cage match against Lita, what Vince McMahon told her about bleeding during the match, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On being told she was going to be wrestling a steel cage match: “We thought it was a joke, because Trish and I, hardcore match, street fight, and all these unusual matches, and when they said, ‘Oh, you have a steel cage match tonight,’ I looked at Fit [Finlay] and I go, ‘Shut up,’ and he goes, ‘No, I’m serious.’”

On wanting to bleed in the match: “I don’t know if this is pilling the beans too much, but I asked to gig, which means cutting yourself in the forehead, I wanted to bleed, and I went to Vince. Oh, Fit goes, ‘I went to Vince, he said no.’ And I go, let me go talk to him, not that I have pull. So I talked to Vince and he goes, ‘Victoria, I appreciate what you want to do, but nobody wants to see a Diva bleed.’ He goes, ‘No.’ So I told Lita, ‘Throw me as hard as you can in that frickin’ steel cage.’ I go, ‘I’m going to cut myself, myself.’ But I didn’t know how to do it. So she threw me, boom, and you’re supposed to scrape down, but I just went, bump, and I was just like going, let me show my face, I just got a bump. All that frickin’, that was it. And then my outfit too was falling off, my panties were showing, so I was distracted by that, but it’s very flattering to get those unusual matches that we got because they knew we can carry it. It was a pat on the back, if anybody could pull it off.”
