Today in History: Trish & Kurt Angle vs. Stephanie & HHH

On this day in history:

January 22nd, 2001 | Addressing two feuds at once, a main event Mixed Tag Team match teamed Trish Stratus with Kurt Angle to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. The hatred between Stephanie and Trish matched, if not exceeded, that between HHH and Angle, so this match was destined to be explosive. Trish and Stephanie made up for their lack of experience with plenty of hair pulls and slaps, and Trish even broke out a bulldog that could have earned her the 3-count. However, HHH arrived before she could get the pin, hitting her with the Pedigree and allowing his wife to get the cover and the win.

    In my opinion BEST FEUD EVERRR!

    Bitch vs Witch, I loved the fact that they were both heels & the crowd just wanted them both to tear each other apart, sometimes even the crowd wouldn’t know who to cheer on…

    Still, I loved their catfights at the Rumble & Mania & even better their PPV match at No Way Out!!! =3

      I don’t think it was the best feud ever due to their being a major lack of wrestling in the feud, but it was very entertaining and I loved it so much! I was hoping AJ and Vickie would play out like this, and to an extent, it did. Just not as well.

        Oh yeah I totally get your point (wrestling-wise) I just meant for me personally, these 2 girls were my favourite characters, I loved their bitchy meddling ways, I always thought they were gonna team up at one point when they both helped each other out against Lita in each of their retrospective matches. :)

        But I loved their feud, it was always the entertaining side that I loved, the promo’s & backstage segments… BRILLIANT! =D

    And even splashing her with water haha
    So fukking hot!

      Not be all perv right, but I loved the Trish/Steph match at NWO because not only was it very coombative and intense, but also because Trish Stratus was hot to look at. Let’s face it, for most of her career…we cared about Trish because she was the hottest diva and well the underdog. There’s no denying her hotness made her a star though. As for this match, I loved it and I loved their trash talking earlier that night. I remember it like it was yesterday, Trish challenged Steph while in the ring with Kurt. Great times. Why is the WWE so different and bland nowadays? Sigh…

    One of my favorite fueds ever: Bitch vs Bitch, Evil vs Evil. The crowd always wanted them to tear each other apart.

    despite their lack of wrestling skills, they put on one hell of a feud. Their match at No Way Out really impressed me, and the build up was awesome!! wish more feuds were like this.
