Well, they're not due to defend the women's... I'm sorry, the "Diva's Title" for another 6-8 months yet, so I'm sure Trish will have plenty of time to heal up before another new challenger (Molly or Gail will have to turn face I guess) comes around.
Not that I tend to derive pleasure from people getting hurt in the ring, but Trish was probably more entertaining to me on Raw last night than she has been in a match in a damn long time. I think she'd do a great job following the great tradition of Iron Mike Sharpe, Owen Hart, and D-Lo Brown as wrestlers whose injuries never healed.
Originally posted by fuelinjectedWhat's with the broken hands and wrists lately? First Edge, then Shelton, now Trish.
I wonder if she punched Victoria's kneebrace ala Shelton with Garrison Cade?
Those kneebaces are a work hazard! I'm actually just half kidding I suspect someone landing on you or connecting with a kneebrace can't feel too pleasant.
Hey Trish breaks her hand and one week later she's back smacking people in the head with her cast, Shelton hurt his hand 3 weeks ago and hasn't been seen since... I think there's one logical conclusion, fitness models are WAY tougher then amateur wrestlers. Maybe that's the reason Batista is doing all those muscleflex poses in his entrance

Well, if the whole purpose of the segment was to make Trish look like a bitch, doesn't it make more sense to have her pull that gag at the expense of someone like Nidia rather than a legit contender like Victoria? Far be it for me to nitpick the booking of the womens division, but if they were going to go with that segment that was probably the way to go.
Creepy Kane makes Lita more interesting than she's been in years. Maybe if Lita had improved one iota as a wrestler over the past four years, maybe they wouldn't have had to come up with an angle like that for her.
Trish could always hire someone to defend the title for her. Gail, Molly or Jazz (or a new gal) could actually work the match while Trish walks ringside to clock the challenger with the cast.
Trish gets airtime, continues to CHEAT TO WIN and the division title doesn't have to suffer exile until she heals. When the defending wrestler loses the belt, Trish smacks her down, creating a feud separate from the new champ's defense of the title.
