WWE: Five women's stipulation matches that were unique

WWE's women's division has long been a successful faction of the franchise.

However, not all women's matches were great to watch until recently when WWE revamped its women's division and brought in some extraordinary talents.

If we dig a bit deeper, we will find WWE has organized some women's matches with unique stipulations.

Here are five such encounters.


Tori vs Ivory: First and only women's hardcore match

Tori vs Ivory: First and only women's hardcore match

Women's matches usually did not include no-disqualification stipulations, but the Attitude Era was different.

On August 22, 1999, Ivory and Tori were stipulated to fight in a first-ever women's hardcore match.

The match included Tori shoving Ivory's head down a toilet, and Ivory even smashed a mirror on her opponent's head.

A landmark match in women's wrestling, this might never be repeated again.

Street Fight

Trish Stratus vs Victoria: Chicago Street Fight

Trish Stratus is surely one of the best women's wrestlers ever, and it was just fitting for her to be involved in matches with special stipulations.

This did happen on January 27, 2003, when she was involved in a Chicago Street Fight match against Victoria for the Women's Championship.

The storytelling was great, and that is what took the match to another level.

Steel Cage

Lita vs Victoria: Steel cage match

Lita vs Victoria: Steel cage match

Lita was another high-flying wrestler who became a huge draw in the early 2000s.

With her hardcore persona, the steel cage match was perfectly suited for Lita and she did not disappoint when she was put in such a stipulation against Victoria on November 24, 2003, at the Roulette.

Both women fought fearlessly and fans loved the bout since it was so uncommon.


Beth Phoenix vs Katie Lea: Ladder match

Ladder matches have been very popular in wrestling for a long time, but they were usually restricted to the men's division.

Things changed in 2006 when Beth Phoenix and Katie Lea were booked in a ladder match.

It was not at WWE, but at Ohio Valley Wrestling, its developmental ground.

Though there were only around 200 fans, the women put up a fantastic show.


Phoenix and Natalya vs McCool and Layla: Tables match

The Divas' Era of the WWE saw a radical decline in women's wrestling, albeit a few instances.

On December 19, 2010, WWE's pay-per-view event TLC saw Beth Phoenix and Natalya clash against Michelle McCool and Layla in a tag team tables match.

This format was made popular by the Dudley Boyz, and the four women did not disappoint with their performances.
