Today in History: A Halloween Costume Contest Featuring Two Trish Stratuses

On this day in history:

October 31st, 2005 | The Divas got their yearly chance to show off their Halloween costumes when Raw played host to a costume contest. Taking part were Ashley Massaro (as a “dark angel”), Maria (as a regular angel), Candice Michelle (as Catwoman), Victoria (as a baseball player), Mickie James (as Trish Stratus) and Trish herself (as Wonder Woman). Mickie was miffed when the fans cheered for contestants other than Trish, and stole the microphone to scold them for it. This started a fight, which turned into an opportunity for the babyfaces to take out Candice and Victoria. Apparently, Catwoman was no match for Wonder Woman.

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

    Six years seems to be the maximum amount of time a Diva stays with WWE. And some don’t even make it that long.

    This match was 7 years ago and all participants are long gone frome WWE.

      Outside of Lillian, no woman ever made it to 7 years on the main roster. I think Torrie and Victoria came the closest. For whatever reason that’s just the shelf life for them. Only question is who’s terms it’s on: the talent or the company. Most of the models quit the business altogether, while the more dedicated wrestlers do the indies or go to TNA.

        Isn’t Layla getting close? Also Michelle Mccool? She debuted in 2004 and left 2011.

        Victoria was on the main roster in 2000 as awhile as the Godfather’s head ho and Too Cool and Rikishi’s manager (along with Mandy, the other main ho) once he became the Goodfather. But her wrestling shelf life on the main roster was about the standard seven years.

          I said main roster, not developmental. McCool wasn’t brought up until 06. Victoria came up in 02. 6-7 years as full timers. Layla would probably set the record if she lasted until next summer, but that certainly isn’t a given. She could disappear next week for all we know.

          @AJFAN83 No, Michelle was on the main roster in 2004 and even 2005. She then disappeared for a while and returned in 2006.

    Loved this contest because it wasn’t just about “Who dressed the sluttiest,” It actually progressed the storyline a little bit.

    PS Loved Trish as Wonder Woman!

    I love how Victoria sold the Chick Kick

    If anyone needed proof that Trish Stratus had one of the best bodies in the Divas division, refer to her Wonder Woman getup.

    I don’t think there’s going to be a diva Halloween custume contest or battle royal this year:(

      Yeah the day for Halloween didn’t align with any of WWE’s shows. They could’ve done it last Monday but that was Beth’s night. They can’t do it next Monday since it would already be the 5th of Nov.

      Last year Halloween fell exactly on the day of Raw, which was the most convenient for them.

    I’ll never forget watching this live and getting excited that Victoria got in Mickie’s face and told her to calm her ass down xD

    Ahh memories. Time just flies by :(
