On this day in history, 18 years ago, Victoria made her official in-ring debut, 2 years after signing with WWE. She faced her future arch-nemesis, Trish Stratus on Heat. While the commentary didn’t acknowledge any history between them, the physicality between the future rivals was already there. After arguing with the referee Jacqueline in the early going, Victoria went on to dominate the 2x Women’s Champion, even kicking out of Chick Kick. Ultimately, Trish’s championship experience came into play and she put her out with Stratusfaction.
