Throwback Thursday: He's the Women's Champ

Hervina wins the women's title

If you think the state of women's wrestling in the WWE is in disarray now, look back to this week in 2000.  On January 31, Harvey Wippleman defeated the Kat for the Women's Championship.  Keep in mind, Harvey was wrestling as his alter ego Hervina in the match, and Harvey wasn't really even a wrestler, having managed guys like Sid, the Warlord, and the Giant Gonzalez.  He also served as a referee for the company.

The title changed hands in a Lumberjill Snow Pool match.  The Kat and Hervina had to escape the pool to win the match.  Hervina prevailed and became the first male Women's Champion.  He lost the belt the next day to Jacqueline, but still it was a silly move in my opinion.  Women's wrestling for whatever reason has almost always seemed to get the short end of the stick in the big leagues, but especially the WWE.

So on one hand it's good that he only held the belt for a day.  On the other hand, why in the hell did this even happen?  Why not just have the Kat lose the belt to Jackie in the first place.  I don't mind inter gender wrestling between two WRESTLERS, but when it's a manager or referee or celebrity being thrown into the ring, it's ridiculous, and it's even worse in my view when a title is involved.
