Cattie’s Catch Up: Jazz vs Trish Stratus vs Victoria for the WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 19 (March, 30th 2003)
Welcome One and All to a New Edition of Cattie’s Catch Up. So even though the Road to WrestleMania technically began in the new year well before the Royal Rumble, it has been officially declared as such this week during RAW, and while we can expect a showcase for the RAW Women’s Championship, one cant forget the many competitive affairs done on the Grandest Stage of Them All featuring some of the best women’s talent WWE has had to offer, and in this particular one, a Hall of Famer with a strong number of accolades cant go without a mention, Trish Stratus.
Canada’s Own Stratus competed in a Triple Threat against the beastly Jazz and the then Women’s Champion Victoria at the 19th WrestleMania, though found herself in the likely place of being an easy target. Jazz and Victoria, despite their own intentions of victory, teamed up through parts of the match to try take Stratus out, but she overcame that as well as the assists of Victoria’s own ringside accompaniment of Stevie Richards, laying out the former WWE Hardcore Champion. In the end Stratus would survive all that in order to regain her women’s championship and end the several month reign of Victoria, though this reign wouldn’t last too long as weeks later at Backlash the sneaky tactics of Jazz’s newest assistant, Theodore Long, allowed Jazz to capitalize and quickly end Stratus’s newest reign.
