Wrestling Observer is reporting that Trish is suffering from a herniated disc in her back. This was the reason why she missed the Australia tour last week. She was advised against making the long flight. She's very limited to what she can do in the ring right now. She also suffers from a torn shoulder as we reported a few months ago. So her body really has taken a toll over these past few months.
Exactly. Lita wins the title from Trish. Then what? There are no longer any heels in the "Women's Division" (which is in quotations because it really is no longer a division) for Lita to defend her title against after winning it. The only viable wrestlers in Lita and Trish in the entire division are now injured. No better time than now for Victoria to go get that knee surgery she's been putting off since the division is pretty much in the crapper now.
You know, they can always have Trish drop the title to Molly Holly, Nidia, Gail Kim or Jazz...
Wait, what?! WWE let them go, because they "couldn't find anything creatively for them"? How hard is it, anyway? "Girls, you're gonna be in the women's division. Molly, you're the kind and sweet babyface. Nidia, you're a young, hungry up-and-comer. Gail, you're a submission specialist without a conscience. Jazz, you just like to beat the fuck out of people."
Yeah, there's pretty much no reason to have a Women's Division anymore, not when there are only four possible holders of that title even on the roster. And Victoria doesn't even count, so... make that three.
I'm sure They're not leaving Stacy out of the mix. They might even have Torrie or Dawn Marie (who I wouldn't mind) do some kind of crossover challenge. I don't know what their plans for Melina are,but did you notice She's bigger than Rey?
Of course they could just have Trish return to a heel manager mode for awhile, where she hangs on to the title as more of a symbol. You could have Cristi turn heel and have Trish in HER corner against Lita.
If we found ourselves with eight extra minutes on RAW, I know exactly what I'd do with them-- I'd remind the viewers at home that contrary to popular belief, the words "RAW tag-team division" actually can be used in the same sentence. When was the last time we saw William Regal and Tajiri in a tag-team title defense on RAW or a PPV, anyway? They've been relegated to Heat, and they deserve better than that.
Particulary when Chris Masters can get four minutes to beat the crap out of some random jobber. In fact, I'd cut Chris Masters off the show entirely and give the extra four minutes to either Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho or Shelton Benjamin. Or I'd give them to Batista so that he can actually open his mouth from time to time.

Hopefully something new is starting with them, after their "open challenge to any tag team in the world" last night on Heat. Maybe even something tonight.
Over here on Heat we got something a little extra to Regal's challenge, which I'm not sure you guys got. As soon as the words left his lips Coach said "he had some guys to call", and that he had just the right team to accept the match. Was that a UK-only-commentary kinda thing, or did he say something similar across the pond?
Didn't see it, but this reminds me of all the other board gimmicks from the past. Remember the WCW board from way back when [around 1995 or so?] They were like a mini-UN, with representation from France, Germany, and Japan.
