Trish Stratus on her return to WWE

Trish Stratus spoke to Out of Character with Ryan Satin about her return to WWE. Many were happy about it. “When I went back, they were having the live events and they were coming through Toronto. Twice I had dabbled with the girls in the ring.

You know what it was? It was like the fans being so interested in this fantasy booking and seeing this kind of happen. If I’m going to come back, there’s like these certain boxes I want to check. I want the fans to be interested.

I want them to care. I don’t just want to come back for my own kicks. I want something that’s interesting, like, you know, Charlotte versus Trish Stratus, oh my God, that’s interesting. When Becky and I were exchanging, you know, it was literally a social media feud and people were into it.

People were so into it and when we faced off in Toronto, it was really fun. Same with Bayley. There’s a moment we had in the ring in Toronto for RAW. I think just doing that and getting the mix and seeing the interest from fans, and that’s where I’m sure WWE got the interest from, like, ‘Oh, this could work’, and then yeah, here we are”.

Trish Stratus and her career

Stratus is ready for anything in her career and wants to prove herself. “Yeah, knowing that we were like, WrestleMania is going Hollywood again, that was 18 years prior to that.

I had been, you know, the same thing. We’d been in L.A., but like, what a difference. We were just at the Staples Center. You know, here we are in this 80,000 plus people, two nights in a row, and it’s just like, wow.

Just to see how far the business has grown, how it’s evolved, how the women’s role has evolved, to be a part of it was an honor. I did feel a little bit like, can I do it, can I still go in the ring, but it really just feels like home for me.

When I walk through the curtain, I’m ready to go. My motto in life is preparedness meets opportunity. I don’t let things go by like, I will be prepared for the moments that I’m given, for the opportunities I’m given.

I did have a torn hamstring at the time which did not allow me to fully prepare like I wanted to, but being out there doing my thing, it’s what I do. My body’s like, I got you. It just feels like home really”.
