Today in History: Trish Stratus Snaps on Jazz

On this day in history:

March 4th, 2002 | Despite having a Women’s Title reign under her belt, Trish Stratus was still considered to lack a certain “fire” as a wrestler. That is, until she was sufficiently provoked by Women’s Champ Jazz in a match with the title on the line. Jazz accidentally ripped Trish’s top off when tossing her across the ring, and this seemed to flip a switch. She immediately took Jazz down and locked her in her own submission hold, the STF. Trish seemed to forget that the title was on the line, and was DQed when she wouldn’t release the hold for a rope break. Even when banished from the ring, Trish wasn’t done. She gave Jazz one hell of a slap through the ropes before she finally left ringside. Well, so much for a lack of fire.
