Last Monday night on "WWE Raw," a shocking turn of events unfolded when Trish Stratus betrayed her tag team partner, Becky Lynch, just moments after they lost the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship to Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez.
Stratus, a WWE Hall of Famer, revealed on this week's show that she took out Lynch's original partner, Lita, to sabotage "The Man" and prevent her from retaining the gold. The former WWE Women's Champion divulged that she has been eyeing Lynch for some time now.
Trish Stratus further elaborated on her interest in Becky Lynch during an appearance on the "After The Bell with Corey Graves and Kevin Patrick" podcast. She recalled a live event in Toronto on March 27, 2022, where she confronted Lynch after her successful defense of the "Raw" Women's Championship against Rhea Ripley.
The heated exchange between the two sparked significant fan interest, which intrigued Stratus. The seven-time WWE Women's Champion returned to the ring at WrestleMania 39's first night, joining forces with Lynch and Lita against Damage CTRL's Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY.
A few weeks earlier, the 47-year-old had assisted Lynch and Lita in winning the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, overcoming Kai and SKY. Stratus revealed her motivation for betraying Lynch on "Raw," stating that she had brought credibility to a virtually non-existent women's division in WWE long before Lynch and the Four Horsewomen came into the picture.
She asserted that she would not settle for being anyone's sidekick.
