320. Women’s Championship: Christy Hemme (w/ Lita) vs. Trish Stratus

Timeline:
WrestleMania 21
April 3, 2005
Staples Center
Los Angeles, CA

Christy Hemme had won the Raw Diva Search, a contest that was essentially a modeling competition. Christy was also getting pushed to these heights because of two other reasons: 1) Lita had blown out her knee and was brought in to play Christy’s trainer for this WrestleMania championship match, and 2) Christy had just revealed her Playboy cover.

Christy is greener than grass, and Trish, in her evil phase, was able to treat Christy as the joke she was in this feud. Christy does her best to sell, but she simply isn’t anywhere close to being able to compete competently at Mania in a one on one scenario. Christy has a moment or two of hope, getting a couple near falls on roll ups, but Trish hits the chick kick and gets the easy pinfall victory.

This match is indicative of what was wrong with the women’s division at the time. You don’t need me to tell you to not bother going back to this revisit this nightmare.
