In the realm of expert wrestling, plans can change in a moment. Wrestlers must adapt on the fly because even the most famous matches and plots can change anytime. Trish Stratus, a WWE Hall of Famer, is well aware of this. She recently discussed a significant alteration to her WrestleMania 20 storyline that transformed her from a fan-favorite face into a villainous heel.
Christian, Stratus, and Chris Jericho formed a love triangle in the following storyline and bet on who could "hook up" with Trish or Lita first. Trish was initially in love with Jericho, but when she learned about the bet, she became enraged and wanted to exact her retribution.
As a result, Trish was present at WrestleMania 20 when Jericho squared off against Christian. Trish and Jericho were to become a comedic duo known as "Trishtopher" as part of the original plan. However, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon changed the plan at the last minute and made Trish turn heel, kissing Christian and betraying Jericho.
During a recent appearance on the Getting Over podcast, Trish Stratus discussed how the unexpected turn of events benefited her career. She claimed that McMahon altered the strategy because fans desired her to turn heel and that the move ended up being the "best work" of her career.
She also mentioned that her character was helped by Christian's injury, which occurred shortly after WrestleMania 20 and allowed her to stand on her own as a significant player in the plot.
WrestleMania 39 Match for Trish Stratus Announced
Trish Stratus will compete alongside Lita and Becky Lynch in a match against Bayley, IYO SKY, and Dakota Kai before WrestleMania 39.
The match will occur on April 1 or 2 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Trish Stratus knows that plans can change at any time in pro wrestling. However, she also acknowledges that unforeseen adjustments can sometimes result in the best outcomes.
Even though her WrestleMania 20 storyline was changed at the last minute, it was a turning point in her wrestling career.
