Trish Stratus is widely considered to be one of the greatest female WWE superstars of all time. Stratus began her WWE journey during the Attitude Era. She soon became involved in a rivalry with Stephanie McMahon. Stratus also worked several romance angles during her time with the sports and entertainment juggernaut. From The Rock to Chris Jericho, here are four superstars who were kayfabe romantically involved with Stratus.
Jeff Hardy is one of the most beloved performers of all time. Jeff is one-half of the legendary Team Xtreme with his brother Matt. The Charismatic Enigma went solo after the first WWE Draft in 2002 and was briefly involved in a romantic storyline with Trish Stratus in 2003.
The two kissed backstage and teamed up in a match in March 2003 against Steven Richards and Victoria. However, the storyline didn’t go any further as WWE released Jeff from his contract in April 2003. Trish resumed her solo career after that.
Christian has returned to his roots as the backstabbing heel. Captain Charisma turned on Jungle Boy after Jurassic Express lost the AEW World Tag Team Championship to the Young Bucks during an episode of Dynamite in June 2022.
Way before he hit on Jungle Boy’s mom, Christian was involved in a love triangle storyline with Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus. The storyline culminated at WrestleMania XX where Christian pinned Jericho following an assistance from Stratus.
In 2003, Chris Jericho and his tag team partner Christian started dating Trish Stratus and Lita on-screen. WWE booked a Battle of the Sexes match between Lita /Stratus and Jericho /Christian at Armageddon 2003.
Despite this, Jericho and Stratus later became "just friends" after Y2J rescued his on-screen ex-girlfriend from an attack by Kane. However, this was all revealed to be swerve as Stratus turned on Jericho during his match with Christian at WrestleMania XX.
The Rock replaced Austin as the face of WWE when the latter took an injury break from the company in 1999. Trish Stratus was also starting in WWE at the time and got involved in several backstage segments with The Great One.
The two even shared a kiss on the December 3, 2001, episode of Raw is War. Stratus wanted to thank The Rock for standing up for her and gave him a smooch on the cheek. Despite their on-screen chemistry, the two never got involved in a full-fledged romance angle.
