TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… OCT. 17th: A Gender-Bending Title Win

DATELINE: OCTOBER 17, 1999 – GUND ARENA – CLEVELAND, OH


At the No Mercy pay-per-view, Jeff Jarrett makes a final appearance in the WWF, even though his contract had technically expired the night before and he was leaving.

Jarrett, was holding the WWF Intercontinental championship at the time. Based on whatever conflicting report you choose to believe – Jarrett either demanded royalties that were owed to him, OR, held the company up for more money for agreeing to drop the belt to Chyna.

Chyna would, indeed, defeat Jarrett in a ‘good housekeeping match’ to win the Intercontinental title, and Jarrett would go on to WCW.
