Today in History: Trish Referees Ashley vs. Mickie at Royal Rumble 2006

On this day in history:

January 29th, 2006 | At the 2006 Royal Rumble, Trish Stratus was quite literally thrown in the middle of the feud between obsessor Mickie James and friend Ashley Massaro when she was appointed the referee of their match, and it didn’t help matters when Mickie told Trish she loved her just before the bout. Still, Trish did her best to play the impartial referee, once scolding Ashley when she punched Mickie with a closed fist. When Mickie rolled up Ashley for the win, Trish didn’t notice that she had a handful of Ashley’s shorts, and counted the pin. Mickie celebrated her win, repeatedly trying to hug Trish, believing that this meant that Trish loved her too.
