Today in History: Lita vs. Trish Stratus at Survivor Series 2004

On this day in history:

November 14th, 2004 | The feud between Trish Stratus and Lita was firey, to say the least. It was so firey, in fact, that at Survivor Series 2004, when Trish’s Women’s Title was on the line, Lita was more focused on causing Trish pain than winning the title. She pummeled Trish to the outside of the ring and eventually clocked her with a steel chair, disqualifying herself and giving Trish a broken nose. She still wasn’t finished, though, choking Trish relentlessly until a team of referees pried her off. Maybe she thought it was a First Blood match..

    This match caught me by surprise I expected the normal type match but it was great seeing 2 women do what men would do not only just fight
    I remember thinking lita was gonna turn heel after this would have been cool if she had

      The women back then fought like guys. This was the third time in five years that a Survivor Series Divas match got bloody. The 2002 SS match between Trish and Victoria saw Victoria get busted open, and the 2000 match between Ivory and Lita got REALLY bloody. It’s been said that a modern Hell in a Cell match isn’t as brutal as what Trish & Victoria regularly did to each other, back then.

        Its sad but true I loved that time

    Loved this “match” (if it qualities as one). It built the feud up so much more, and it was so entertaining seeing Lita beat Trish like hell after all the humiliation in the story. This feud is literally the god of diva feuds.

    I loved I remembering seeing this thinking from thr beginning that Trish was gonna embarass lita but Lita did instead and idk why but watching Trish suffer and her facial expressions r to sexy

  • WweLitafan4ever

    I prefer Lita as a face in feuds,but this was a great rivalry.

    When I first saw this I was SO shicked. I was raised during this era so it’s not the fighting style but the fact Trish got so messed up I couldn’t tell if she was genuinely crying and conscerned or just going with the accident? Either way, she even pulled together in the end with her character by grabbing the belt and looking around like an attacked queen who was lucky to still have her crown.

    You don’t see that alot now in the divas division blood and matches ending in dq.

    What I love about this match was that it lead to their main event match on RAW.

    Still longer than today’s matches, sadly. Good stuff by both of them.

    Trish looked so sexy getting punished. She rammed Trish into the floor ouch lol damn.. Lita looked like a bad guy since she was with Kane in August 2004
    Trish deserved to get destroyed by Lita but I had to admit, I felt like Trish has gotten so good and Lita was the weaker one lol but glad for December 6 2004 when Lita beat Trish for the championship. Best fued ever
