Today in History: Jacqueline vs. Trish Stratus vs. Victoria in a Hardcore Women’s Title Match


On this day in history:

January 13th, 2003 | Victoria‘s Women’s Championship was on the line in a Triple Threat Hardcore match, Trish Stratus and Jacqueline serving as her challengers. Trish was decidedly the underdog here, as Victoria’s unpredictability and Jacqueline’s affinity for the rough-and-tumble put her at a distinct disadvantage. Trish was no slouch, though, at one point going to town on Victoria with a Kendo stick before hitting Steven Richards with it as well. Richards got a measure of revenge later on by hitting Trish with a trash can lid, allowing Victoria to pin her and retain her title. A post-match attack from Victoria and Richards prompted a hero – The Hurricane – to come to Trish’s aid and chase the fiends off.
