• Victoria On Why Vince McMahon Didn’t Allow Her To Blade During A Steel Cage Match
During a recent appearance on Lilian Garcia’s “Chasing Glory” podcast, former WWE Women’s Champion Victoria talked about competing in the first-ever women’s Steel Cage match against Lita.
Below are the highlights:
On being told she was going to be wrestling in 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 blade in the Steel Cage 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.”
