Trish Stratus has been touted as one of the most iconic popular female WWE Superstars in the history of the company. She truly set the stage for women’s wrestling in general and helped make it better for female competitors. She also revealed what made her want to make a WWE return.
Before Trish Stratus and Lita tore it up in the ring and redefined what it meant to be a female performer in WWE back in the day, female WWE talents were seen as mere eye candy. Despite that, Stratus paved the way for future female talents as well.
Lita and Becky Lynch also had a solid match at WWE Elimination Chamber back in February. While speaking in a Q&A session with Monopoly Events, Trish Stratus revealed that watching Becky Lynch vs Lita made her want to make a WWE return.
“Um, yeah, to be honest, it did (watching Becky Lynch vs. Lita made Trish get the buzz to return). I was lucky, a couple weeks later… the live event was so much fun because it was just after that and I got a chance to go back and it was in Toronto and in another town near me at home so I just drove in, took my kids and yeah, you get in there, you feel the energy of the crowd, you do some promos, you do some slapping and it’s just like, oh, it’s such — it’s good.
So I love it, it’ll always be in my blood, you know? I did a post and it said, ‘I’ll never not feel at home between these ropes’, right? So it’s in me forever. The cool thing is sometimes we go back and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can I do this? Like it’s been a while’ and the last time — the first time I went back after many years was to fight Charlotte (Flair) for a singles match.
It had been like 11 years and two children later so I was like, ‘I don’t know’ and you don’t know until you actually have the match. You can practice and you can roll around in the ring but you don’t know until you actually get in there.
I mean, ‘nailed it’ would be something I would use to describe that. I’m being sarcastic guys. I don’t think — I did though (Stratus joked). But it was like, it’s just kind of cool that wrestling is like riding a bike for us wrestlers. That’s what I’ve discovered. It’s kind of cool. I mean maybe you move slower but, some of us don’t.
Trish Stratus also wants to make a return to WWE in an authority role. We will have to wait and see when the WWE Hall Of Famer will finally return to WWE television as fans would love to see her back.
