The landscape of the upcoming women's Money in the Bank ladder match will change significantly as WWE fans eagerly anticipate the event at the illustrious O2 Arena in London on July 1. With the final slot yet to be filled, the legendary Trish Stratus announced on her website that she will return to singles competition on Monday's "WWE Raw." Her opponent? The formidable Raquel Rodriguez.
This will mark Stratus's first singles match on the red brand in a great 12 years. Since her hard-fought defeat against Vickie Guerrero in a No Disqualification match on March 14, 2011, the WWE Hall of Famer has primarily participated in tag team matches during her sporadic appearances on "Raw." Notably, she recently clashed with Rodriguez and her injured partner, Liv Morgan, in a bid for the coveted WWE Women's Tag Team Championship.
Stepping in for her injured ally, Lita, Stratus valiantly defended the titles alongside Becky Lynch. However, despite their valiant efforts, they could not secure victory, leading to a shocking revelation by Stratus. She unmasked herself as Lita's assailant, exposing a deep-rooted betrayal that sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe.
Intensifying Rivalry: Stratus vs. Lynch
Ever since that moment, the rivalry between Stratus and Lynch has intensified, simmering with unresolved tension. The stakes are higher than ever as "Canada's Greatest Export" fights for a coveted spot in the prestigious ladder match.
Both Lynch and Stratus's protégé, Zoey Stark, have already secured their positions, adding fuel to the fiery conflict. However, Stratus must first overcome the imposing obstacle of Raquel Rodriguez, a competitor known for her physical dominance and unyielding determination.
The clash between Stratus and Rodriguez can potentially steal the show and cement Stratus's legacy as one of the all-time greats in WWE history. As the anticipation builds, fans can't help but wonder if Stratus's triumphant return to singles competition will propel her to the pinnacle of the Money in the Bank ladder match.
It's a crucial juncture in her storied career, and all eyes will be on the outcome of Monday's clash. In this highly-anticipated showdown, Stratus's resilience, in-ring prowess, and strategic insight will be tested. Will she conquer Rodriguez's challenge and secure her rightful place among the elite contenders? The answer lies within the ring, and the WWE Universe eagerly awaits the momentous clash between these two phenomenal competitors on "WWE Raw."
