This is the week beginning November 26th-December 2nd
Our first Diva sighting of the night is Lita accompanying Jeff Hardy to the ring for his European title match against Christian. Matt comes down to the ring halfway through the match and tries to stop Jeff from going to the top rope when he already has the match won. Christian then pushes Matt into the ringpost and that knocks Jeff off, allowing him to get the win. Backstage Jeff is getting medical attention and Matt criticises him for taking stupid risks. Lita tries to get in between the argument but Matt shuts her up. Lita says it's obvious he only cares about himself and storms off. More drama between Team Xtreme, though I'm wondering exactly how Jeff qualified as the face in this when Matt had a very good point. Again, going back to what I said last time about giving Lita a high profile storyline while Trish was Women's Champion.
Later on Michael Cole (sporting some Backstreet Boys inspired highlights) interviews Stacy about challenging Trish again for the title in a bra and panties match. Stacy makes an obvious crack about ending up on top before leaving.
Trish Stratus def. Stacy Keibler in a Bra & Panties Match to retain the Women's Championship:
Stacy actually slams Trish right onto the title belt starting off and we have a standard catfighting sequence to start things off. Trish injects some excitement into the wrestling enthusiasts and the purists by rolling right over Stacy and using a school girl to try and pull her shorts down (the ref forgets what match he's in and actually counts). She is not successful and Stacy clotheslines her before removing the champion's top. It takes Trish an eternity to remove Stacy's top but she gets there. Stacy boots Trish in a way that makes her happy she's not a man. Trish goes for the Stratusfaction but Stacy crotches her between the ropes. Stacy does that hand-standing-on-the-hair thing but Trish rolls through into a cradle (the ref counts *again*) and rips Stacy's shorts off. Stacy attacks Trish anyway but Trish Chick Kicks her and pins her, making the ref count to three.
More good horny fun though you know what they say about too much of a good thing. Some parts were awkward but Trish brought some wrestling to the table and showed off some skills, though I can't believe I'm talking about technical skills in a Bra & Panties match. The spot at the turnbuckle was incredibly brutal and actually the spot of the match. I liked the little bit after the match. If people are going to protest against this excessive T&A stuff, I think they're overloading it right now so that Jazz's upcoming push has a proper basis. 5/10
More of the Team Xtreme saga has Lita and Jeff backstage talking about how Matt has been acting lately. Matt enters the room unbeknownst to them and hides for a moment before walking in and announcing they have a #1 contender's match for the Tag Team titles at Vengeance.
In the match itself, Lita goes to get involved by climbing to the top rope for a Litacanrana. Kane catches her and sets her gently on the top rope but Jeff dropkicks him into the ropes and that knocks Lita to the floor, which causes Kane & Big Show to get the win.
Backstage Matt yells at Jeff for losing the match and blames him for everything that has happened lately. He then challenges his brother to a match at Vengeance. Another good development in the feud and this way it puts Lita in the middle, though once again Matt has a point yet he's meant to be the heel.
Trish Stratus vs Jacqueline For The Women's Championship is a No Contest:
Before Jacqueline even enters, Vince McMahon appears on the stage and informs Trish that since she betrayed him all the way back at WrestleMania X-Seven she will become the next member of the "Kiss My Ass" Club. In the ring he pulls his pants down and orders Trish to get down on her knees. Thankfully she is saved by The Rock which leads to a lengthy promo hyping up Vengeance.
Not much to talk about here except thank the lord Trish didn't have to kiss Vince's ass, she'd already kissed practically every other part of him as it is. For those feeling a little cheated, Trish/Jacqueline made it to the Vengeance card. N/A
