Today in History: Torrie Wilson vs. Trish Stratus in a Spanking Match

On this day in history:

July 23rd, 2001 | Trish Stratus‘s team beat Torrie Wilson‘s team at the Invasion PPV, so naturally, Torrie was anxious for a little revenge. The next night on Raw, Torrie took on Trish in a Spanking match, the winner being the first to use the paddle (which was suspended on a pole) on their opponent. Trish got the paddle down first, but Torrie managed to fight her off and use it herself, spanking Trish with it, winning the match and gaining a little bit of revenge for her Invasion humiliation.

    I remember this match as if it were yesterday. Although I don’t usually care for matches like these, this one was pretty fun to watch.

    Ganga matches were always so entertaining and hard-hitting back in the day.

        As is Victoria apparently. How many of these girls will actually be on the show will remained to be seen.

    I would consider The Brawl to End It All, Moolah vs Wendi, (Today’s it’s 28th anniversary) to be the most significant women’s wrestling event to happen on this day. I mean, it just changed pro wrestling forever by putting a certain New York based promotion on the pop culture map, drawing in fans that had never watched wrestling before, scoring a 9.0 Nielsen rating, & beginning the Rock’n’Wrestling Era that made the WWF HUGE.
