Today in History: Lita & Kane’s Wedding

On this day in history:

August 23rd, 2004 | All of Lita‘s Kane-related troubles–the abduction, terrorization, pregnancy and “engagement”–culminated with their wedding. Rejecting a white wedding dress chosen by Kane, Lita wore a gothic black gown and did what she could to undermine his glee. The ceremony itself–featuring a music video dedicated to their unborn child and an appearance by Trish Stratus as Lita’s “maid of honor”–lurched forward until Matt Hardy showed up to stop it, attacking Kane. Kane was able to fight him off, chokeslamming him off the stage and dragging Lita back to the altar to finish the wedding. He then scooped her up and carried his new wife over the threshold–er, under the Titan Tron.

What are your memories of this moment? Tell us in the comments!

    “I even wore white because I knew that you couldn’t. (wink)”

    Trish always stealing the spotlight.

    She’s just so darn good.

    • perceval

      She literally stole the entire angle, in the end. What was supposed to be a big Kane-Matt feud became the Trish ‘n’ Lita Show, with Kane spending the next year as a supporting player in whatever Lita was doing.

        To be fair, that happened because Matt was out with injury and couldn’t continue the angle.

    Lol I liked Lita’s vows

  • StraightEdgeGirl84

    Minus the Matt Hardy mention I loved Lita’s vows. I don’t know very many women that can rock a black wedding gown.

    Lita the Dark Angel hehe
    Spanish announcers always referred to Lita as edge’s dark guardian angel :)

    Best part was ” I even wore white, because I knew you couldn’t” ;D
    And open ur heart! Just like u opened ur legs! Lol

    During the thing with AJ, some IWC types were complaining that it “ruined” Kane by having him have an interest in girls… Um, remember Tori, Terri, Lita, Kelly, Eve… Am I missing any (besides Katie Vick)?

    Trish totally stole this feud!

    She had some of the best one liners during this feud and you couldn’t help but laugh @ her.

    I remember watching this thinking about how irresponsibly Lita was playing a mom to be. She was constantly putting herself in harm’s way, attacking Trish, getting involved @ ringside, etc & I kept thinking “Obviously dudes are writing this for Lita, because no pregnant woman would be doing these things.” It really wasn’t Snitsky’s fault.

    it wasn’t snitsky’s fault!! lol
