WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus started barking up the wrong tree and it eventually came back to cost her. Stratus constantly antagonized Lita about everything from the breakup of the Hardy Boyz to the miscarriage of her child and the injury to her husbnad, Kane. Lita had a shot at Stratus at Survivor Series, but she couldn't keep her cool and choked out Stratus earning her a disqualification. After the match she brutalized her nemesis even more and broke her nose. When Chris Jericho was the General Manager of RAW for a night, he booked a match between Trish and as she put it, the Kiss of Death. Lita kept her cool this time, and took it to the champ, ultimately ending it with a moonsault. The title reign was Lita's second.
