5 Ways WWE’s Women Made History Before Money in the Bank

5. Lita and Victoria Compete in First Women’s Steel Cage Match

Before Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss met inside the steel structure years later, Lita and Victoria were making history of their own.

On November 24, 2003, the two were set to compete on Raw, but the stipulation remained unknown. As part of “Raw Roulette”, it was determined it would be a Steel Cage Match, the first time two women had ever competed in this match in the WWE.

Years before The Four Horsewomen, Paige and Emma were raising the bar on NXT, and then the main roster, the likes of Lita, Victoria and Trish Stratus were paving the way. Lita, a Hall-of-Famer and one of the best female heels of all time during her time alongside Edge, will go down as one of the women who changed the game.

Long before her villainous run with Edge, she was beloved by the fans. Lita’s unique look and skill set in the ring made her a star, and it’s fitting she took part in this moment of history alongside Victoria.

Sadly this Steel Cage Match didn’t build momentum for the Women’s division. Over 13 long years separated this match with the Becky-Alexa meeting in 2017. Despite that, this will always be the very first.
