At Saturday Night’s Main Event, Carlito & Trish Stratus will team up to take on Intercontinental Champion Johnny Nitro & Melina. After Trish and Melina’s heated match on RAW, in which Nitro tried to interfere and Carlito came to Trish’s rescue, this growing rivalry is intertwined between both Superstars and Divas and it has reached its boiling point.
It all started at Vengeance, where Johnny Nitro claimed the Intercontinental Championship by pouncing on the opportunity Carlito unintentionally presented to him. Carlito hit then-Champion Shelton Benjamin with his signature Back Cracker, only to be pulled out of the ring by Nitro, who then covered a dazed Benjamin for the three count and the gold.
The next night on RAW, Melina led the newly crowned Champion to the ring after Trish’s loss to Mickie James. Melina proceeded to explain to Trish that she was now the top Diva in town; this enraged Trish and she attacked Melina, only to be interrupted by Nitro. It looked like a two-on-one attack was imminent, until out of nowhere Carlito came out to save Trish. Obviously still upset about Vengeance, the Caribbean Superstar sabotaged Melina & Nitro’s attack and sent them scurrying.
The following week on RAW, Nitro faced Carlito with the Intercontinental Championship on the line. Carlito connected once again with his Back Cracker, but Melina sensed that her man’s championship reign was nearing an end and jumped in the ring to cause a disqualification. At that point, Trish sprung into the ring from the back and the catfight was on.
With all the built-up animosity developed between the two Superstars and two Divas over the course of the past few weeks, things are sure to be interesting come Saturday night.
