The 2 women, both claiming the title of most dominant female in the WWE, burst into classic catfight brawl at ringside during a championship bout with Triple H and Kurt Angle. Vince McMahon finally had to step in to separate the women and eventually carried Trish away from ringside to keep these dueling darlings apart.

In the end, the match was called fairly, however Mickie was convinced Trish helped her capture her win.
