Your Monday Post #149: Tori vs Sable for the WWF Women’s Championship; Nicole Bass Debuts (March, 28th 1999)
Late last week, it was reported that former WWE Women’s Superstar, ECW Alumni and Professional Bodybuilder, Nicole Bass, had passed away via various media outlets. Bass’s sudden death comes the same week as the passing of WWE Legends George “The Animal” Steele and Ivan Koloff. Along with the saddening and unfortunate news, this weeks first wrestling related post of the week looks at Bass’s debut for the World Wrestling Federations main roster, as she participated on ECW prior to her main roster appearance.
This came on the 15th WrestleMania Extravaganza, the same night that pitted the Late Big Boss Man against the Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell, as Sable defended the World Wrestling Federation Women’s Championship against former super-fan Tori. The Booked match saw the official take a bump which allowed for Bass’s debut and intervention, taking out Tori in aid of Sable. Bass urged Sable to pin Tori, to which the popular heel superstar did, retaining the championship as Bass left the scene.
I Extend My Thoughts, Prayers and Condolences to the Friends and Family of Nicole over this saddening news.
