Fresh off of her WrestleMania win last night, seven time WWE Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus teamed up with John Morrison once again to face off against Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler this week on Raw. Can the ‘Diva of the Decade’ and ‘The Shaman of Sexy’ pull out another win? Check out the match below:
The segment starts off with Vickie and Dolph coming down to the ring and pinning the blame for their loss at WrestleMania on Lay-Cool and challenges Trish and John Morrison to a mixed tag match. Never ones to pass up a challenge, Trish and JoMo accept (after a short commercial break).
John Morrison and start the match off, and after a bit of back and forth, Morrison gets the upperhand, sending Dolph scrambling to his corner to tag in Vickie. In an attempt to mock Snooki’s back handspring at WrestleMania, Vickie tries her best to hit a cartwheel. Vickie celebrates her acrobatic feat, but takes her eye off of Trish and get rolled up for a nearfall.
Frustrated, Vickie charges at Trish with a clothesline, but Trish evades with the Ma-Trish, followed by another rollup for a nearfall. Not happy with the way the match is going, Vickie gets in Trish’s face and piefaces her. Vickie seems pretty proud of herself until Trish lays into her with a few chops to the chest. Before Trish can follow up, Dolph jumps in the ring and distracts her, allowing Vickie to take control of the match.
Vickie slams Trish around the ring by the hair few times and goes for the pin, but only gets a two count. Vickie tries to finish Trish off with a leg drop, but Trish rolls out of the way and tags in JoMo. After some more action between the guys, Trish rushes the ring to break up a pin and gets cornered by Dolph Ziggler. Trish fights her way out with a slap, allowing Morrison to hits his signature flying kick, followed by Starship Pain, to pick up the win for his team.
A decent match, in my opinion, but as with most matches involving Vickie, there was a lot of fluff. That said, it was a nice follow-up to the WrestleMania and it neatly tied up all the loose ends. With the match out of the way, let’s talk about what wasn’t on the show: The rest of the Divas.
I would think with WrestleMania over and done with, WWE would want to start building up some sort of storyline revolving around the Divas Title. I mean, they don’t even have a #1 contender. On the other hand, with the WWE Draft right around the corner, WWE might be reluctant to start up any new storylines just yet. In any case, let’s just hope we get to see some more action from the Divas on next week’s edition of Raw.
