"OSH: You ask me what was the last man-hungry female heel. Have you watched Smackdown in the last year plus. That's all there is over there. I don't blame you for forgetting about SD considering how every single angle with females involved there fizzled into nothing after a month are so as they are put on the shelf until another inane angle is thought up. I guess those are Male Soap Opera female character on SD had a lot more success then the "bland" Trish had on Raw riiight."
Sorry, should have clarified. When was the last active-wrestling man-hungry female heel? There hasn't been one since forever. And even if Trish is with Christian, how does it make her "man-hungry"? I agree with you that the turn is fairly illogical and they've sacrificed some good storytelling to get to a totally different end, but now that they're there good things will come of it, I think. Christian gets some cred and an over act to work with, Jericho gets mega-over as a sympathetic face, and Trish gets much-needed revitalisation. Speaking of which, God belss ya for your characterisation of her. If the fed-or the majority of fans-cared as much about the women competitors as you did the division would be much more stable and legitimate. Sadly, I don't think they do. Smart fans may be in the minority when it comes to wanting Benoit as the top man, but those who want a serious female division are even moreso. Shouldn't be that way, but it is. And with that in mind, it's hard to blame the company for playing to what the masses want. Trish's heel turn is illogical to us, and could have been handled waaaay better. But it got the job done in the casual fans' eyes who, when it comes to the ladies of WWE, probably couldn't care less about motivation or nuance.
It's just too bad Lawler gave it the "what was that?" treatment, and JR gave it a casual passing over as "he calls it the Vertebreaker." Sad they couldn't have put it over as the coolest finisher ever...cause we all know it is.
