Former seven-time women's champion Trish Stratus recently gave an interview to Main Event Radio where she talked about her career highlights and if she would ever make an in-ring return.
WWE Divas back when Trish was wrestling were a lot more fierce than they are nowadays and Trish even ended up Main Eventing an episode of Raw along with Lita, in what was one of the best women's matches of that era. Trish spoke about the honour of doing so.
She said: "Completely an honour to be able to have that spot. We both arrived and couldn’t believe it; it was like we’re WHAT tonight! We knew this was our chance to prove that the women could hang with the boys.
We worked just as hard as they did, the fans embraced it. We came back to big applause from our co-workers which meant a lot. I’m very blessed to have the career I did and have the people that I worked with to support the career I did. It’s not a one-man show. It takes two to tango and it takes even more to put on a wrestling production. I’m just so grateful for all the people I was surrounded with.
Since then Stephanie and Brie were a part of the main event a few weeks ago even though they didn't wrestle, it was an honor for the females to be used in the main event of WWE's flagship show.
Hall of Fame
As well as the main event Trish also talked about the honour of being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame: "Just an honour. You’re being recognized by your peers; your colleagues. Going in as the youngest was nice instead of hustling and bustling being an old bird coming up onto the stage. It was nice to be in my prime.
And we represented the modern day divas, [Lita] this year and me last. I’m curious to see who they will choose next. A huge honour."
The record breaking champion was also asked about an in-ring return and she said: Every time I have returned it’s been on the basis that the door is never closed. If some awesome opportunity pops up and it sounds fun and challenging and it’s something I haven’t done before.
"That’s kind of how each thing has happened. I have a great relationship with WWE and we’re always chatting ideas. You never know, retirement is used very loosely in the wrestling world. There are lots of great workers right now. Seeing Brie and Stephanie in there a couple of weeks ago made me kind of excited again. So we’ll see what happens. You know if that Stephanie keeps up her ways there is one woman that I know can put her in her place, just saying…me!"
Trish has made a return to WWE a few times over the past few years, once as a guest host and once because WWE was in her home town, since then Trish has given birth to baby Max and this could play a crucial role in if she was to return even for just one night.
