Trish Stratus As A Wrestling Manager
At the same time that Trish Stratus was managing T&A she also briefly managed Val Venus who she helped to win the Intercontinental Title. He held the title briefly before he lost it at Summer Slam and their partnership broke up when he lost the title.
Trish Stratus took her first bumps in the ring as a performer when she was attacked and driven thru a table at Backlash by the Dudley Boys. Stratus had been taunting and making fun of Buba Ray Dudley for weeks. At Backlash Bubba Ray got his revenge slamming Trish Stratus completely thru a table.

After that match Stratus and Lita had an ongoing feud with Stratus appearing out of nowhere and attacking Lita several times over the next few weeks. They finally fought in an indian strap match with Trish Stratus winning but she did receive help from Stephanie McMahon. But she had still not won a championship.

But she lost the Hardcore Championship shortly afterwards to Steven Richards.
And then one week later she won the womens championship again with the help of Bubba Ray Dudley. At this time Stratus was wrestling only on the Raw Brand of the then WWF.
