On this day in history:

January 3rd, 2005 | Less than a week before she was set to face Lita for her Women’s Championship at New Year’s Revolution, Trish Stratus took on old rival Victoria, easily defeating her and demonstrating to Lita the challenge she had in front of her. Not satisfied with that, though, Trish took to the microphone and called out Lita, drawing her out and setting her up for an attack from Gene Snitsky. He placed a steel chair around Lita’s neck, ready to attack her in the same way he put Kane on the shelf. This prompted the Big Red Machine’s return, sending Snitsky and Trish running and saving his wife.

What are your memories of this moment?

    Gold…pure gold.

    These storylines were so simple and effective, and incorporated top male stars with female stars alike. Its moments like these which really made the attitude girls stand out with the little time they had.

    This is bittersweet for me! Seeing my two favorites taking their rivalry to the next level only to be cut short after all the hard work a few days later! ? Still they gave us more awesome matches and moments and will probably give us another at the Royal Rumble.
