Trish Stratus and Lita are hailed as two of the greatest women’s wrestlers in the history of the business. Both have been credited for truly paving the way for the current women’s wrestlers to find success. Stratus and Lita accomplished a lot during a time when women’s wrestling was seen as an afterthought. That said, it appears Stratus made an interesting claim about Lita’s career in comparison to her own.

As seen on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus defended the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships against Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez.

Liv Morgan used a roll up pin on Trish Stratus, leading to Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez becoming the new champions. Stratus then turned heel on Becky Lynch, cementing her current status in WWE.

While speaking with Corey Graves on After the Bell, Trish Stratus took a shot at Lita’s contributions to pro wrestling and claimed that Lita had a broken neck most of the time Stratus was breaking records in WWE.


“Was it me and Lita? I mean was it, or was it me? I’d want to look back specifically, but I’m pretty sure she had a broken neck most of the time I was there breaking records, doing the rounds, press conferences, being on the cons, and the loop, so to speak.

I have to clearly deliver a message, and that was the best way (to do it). We’ve made it a part of the world of wrestling. We’ve changed the preconceived notion of what a female can do in the ring to the point where now you have little girls going ‘When I grow up, I want to be a wrestler’. Like, we’ve created a vocation, And I say we, but I mean mostly me.”

Lita is also off WWE television and fans might not to see her for a long time. Regardless, we will have to wait and see how WWE plans on building up Trish Stratus and Becky Lynch’s fed, will take some time to get started.
