Today in History: Lita vs. Trish at New Year’s Revolution 2005

On this day in history:

January 9th, 2005 | After losing her title to Lita in a high-profile main event match, Trish Stratus was set on getting revenge from the “Walking Kiss of Death” at 2005’s New Year’s Revolution. The match wasn’t as explosive as their December bout, owing to the fact that Lita tore her ACL early in the match when hitting Trish with a Lous Thesz Press from the ring apron. Lita battled on, but in her condition she was no match for Trish. Soon enough, a Chick Kick had her down for the count and Trish won back the Women’s Championship. Post-match, Lita was helped from the ring by several officials, the moment resembling one from another scary injury suffered by the risk-taking Diva.
