PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Trish Stratus’ quest for Diva dominance continued Monday night, as the Women’s Champion once again ruined Christy Hemme’s evening, this time by interrupting the unveiling of Christy’s Playboy cover and embarrassing her in front of a worldwide audience.
The problems between the two ladies began two weeks ago, when Trish first learned of the 2004 Diva Search Winner’s upcoming Playboy cover/pictorial, walked down to the ring, and proceeded to slap Hemme across the face. Last week, their situation escalated. During a conversation between Hemme and Candice Michelle, Trish interrupted, insulted them both, and then slapped Candice. Seconds later, Christy leapt to Candice’s defense, throwing Trish to the ground and having to be peeled off of her.
"All I want to know is why does Christy have to keep stealing my spotlight?” asked Trish. “If she’s gonna keep stealing my spotlight, than I’m just going to have to steal it back.”
Naturally, Trish refused to let Christy get the last laugh.
Aside from just running down Hemme’s Playboy appearance, Stratus took it a step further. The Toronto native used red spray paint to deface Hemme’s blown-up Playboy cover, before taking it even further by doing the same to Christy herself. After her impromptu painting session was over, Trish failed to show any remorse over actions.
“It was still a big night for Christy,” Stratus told sarcastically WWE.com Monday night. “She had the honor of being ‘chick-kicked,’ and then she got to celebrate her Playboy release by painting the town red.”
Now that Trish has gotten the best of Christy on two separate occasions, one would think that she’s already proved herself as the dominant Diva. That however, is not the case. When asked whether the tormenting of Hemme has ended, Trish chuckled, and responded to the contrary.
"Oh honey, it’s only begun,” continued Trish, “because the bottom line is that I’m the greatest Women’s Champion ever, as well as the number-one Diva on RAW. So if she doesn’t start to know her role around here, than I’m going to have to teach it to her. And tonight was just lesson number-one!”
