At the end of November we let you know that, in a statement on her official website, TrishStratus.com, the Canadian wrestler informed fans that she will soon return to WWE, in a live show on December 29 in her beloved Toronto, Canada.
"Trish Stratus is ready to serve up some Stratusfaction for the WWE Universe holidays in Toronto. The Hall of Famer returns for one night only to present the WWE live event on Wednesday 29 December at the Coca-Cola Coliseum.
Excited to walk through that tent and feel the energy of the WWE Universe once again. Let's do it Toronto!" Speaking with Renee Paquette & Miesha Tate in their Throwing Down, Trish Stratus analyzed what her role will be in this upcoming live event, which many fans have been waiting for since the Hall of Famer was announced.
"It's so exciting because live events are so fun. You have fun, you do some kind of riff, and it gives me a chance to mix with other talents I haven't mixed with. Maybe, it would be interesting to chat with Becky Lynch (we'll talk stores for mothers) behind the scenes and then in front of the scenes could be a different conversation.
" The Canadian also added regarding the restrictions from COVID: "In reality, maybe it works. Ontario is a bit of a fun place once again. We are not in a good point, unfortunately. We will see. We hope. So far, we're just waiting to make sure there's a green light because things are closing."
In fact, some WWE shows for 2022 in Canada have already been canceled, but for now this is confirmed, in fact no cancellation has been communicated yet by WWE or Trish herself. It would still be interesting to see her interact with Becky Lynch, because for example it was nice to see her in her Summerslam match with Charlotte Flair, also return to Evolution alongside Lita, but also to see her interact with Sasha Banks at the 2018 Royal Rumble.
Vince Russo: "I hope Jeff Hardy's career is over"
Jeff Hardy was released from WWE last week after refusing to go to rehab to fix his known problems. On December 4th, during a live event in Texas, Cameron’s 44-year-old left the ring in the middle of the match causing him to lose track of him.
The three-time world champion has received a large number of messages in recent days, between those asking him to start a new adventure in AEW and those suggesting instead to take a break from wrestling. The dream of many fans is to see the 'Charismatic Enigma' in All Elite Wrestling alongside his brother Matt, with the aim of perhaps challenging the Young Bucks.
Jeff will not be able to enter the ring for a period of 90 days, after which he will be free to sign with other companies. In a long interview with Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo expressed his opinion of Jeff Hardy.
Vince Russo said: "I do not want to sound cynical, but I hope that Jeff Hardy's career is over. He has a lot of money, a beautiful family and it's time to take care of his health. These guys love to fight and perform in front of the public, but you need to have the intelligence to understand when is the right time to stop.
I wasn't like that. I didn't feel the obsessive need to go back to being a writer." Jeff has had to live with pain for most of his career. "I spoke to his former colleague Al Snow and he told me that Hardy had serious back problems.
He suffered tremendously after every single match. Experiencing such intense and constant pain affects the rest of your life. You have to perform the next day, but you can't sleep due to the pain. Doing all this for years and years has heavily influenced Jeff's life."
