Trish Stratus has opened up about her recent return to WWE and what she wanted to achieve upon her comeback.

While speaking with Busted Open Radio, Stratus revealed that she wanted to make sure her return to professional wrestling would be both challenging for herself and interesting for fans.

“I’m constantly proving myself to myself. And when I got the call to do WrestleMania, that was fun. It was fun to be in that capacity to do it at that level and at that stage. I’m all about layers and it was like, I hadn’t dipped into this territory again, you know, for a long time. And it was like, can I do this? And when I did it, I loved it.”

Trish Stratus largely left her in-ring career behind in 2006 when she semi-retired but continued to wrestle sporadically. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 and has only wrestled one singles match since 2011. But in February of this year, Stratus made a memorable return when she ran out to help Lita and Becky Lynch win the Women’s Tag Team Championship.


Since then, Stratus teamed up with Lita and Lynch at WrestleMania 38. However, in a recent episode of WWE RAW, Stratus cost them the titles and turned heel on Lynch, potentially setting up a major dream match.

Trish Stratus acknowledged that for her to return to WWE, it had to check a few boxes. She wanted to ensure that it would be interesting, challenging for herself, intriguing to the fans, and tell a unique story.

“To be able to go back to this capacity, it felt like it’s fun and it’s a good story. I think it’s interesting. I always say whenever I went back, it has to check a few boxes. Like, is it interesting? Is it challenging for myself? Will the fans be intrigued by it? Will it tell something different than we’ve told before, a story that’s different than we’ve told before?”

Trish Stratus’ return to WWE has been highly anticipated by fans, and she has proved that she still has what it takes to compete in the ring. As she continues to check off the boxes for her WWE comeback, it will be exciting to see what she has in store for the future.
