Trish Stratus Reveals WWE Partnership Origins with Zoey Stark


Trish Stratus Reveals WWE Partnership Origins with Zoey Stark

When Zoey Stark made her debut on "WWE Raw" earlier this year, the wrestling world couldn't help but take notice. Not only did she catch the attention of notable figures like AEW's Mark Henry and Thunder Rosa, but WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus also had her eyes on the rising superstar.

After Stark's draft to "Raw," Stratus saw an opportunity to find a protege following her separation from "The Man" Becky Lynch and fellow Hall of Famer Lita after WrestleMania 39. During an interview with Cathy Kelly on "The Bump," Stratus revealed the thought process behind her decision to team up with Stark.

"Trish Stratus: Stark's Power & Potential"

"From the moment she stepped onto 'Raw,' I had my eye on her," stated the legendary Attitude Era icon. "It was a no-brainer for me. Zoey Stark was the obvious choice when you look at the future generation and their potential.

What sets her apart? When she enters the screen, people notice her power, her intrigue. She exudes confidence and dominates her opponents. And let's not forget those impressive biceps. She possesses strength and intelligence—the perfect qualities you'd ask for in a superstar." Before her partnership with Stratus, Stark had already tasted success in WWE, particularly when she teamed up with IYO SKY as part of Damage CTRL to capture the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships.

Although her second reign with Nikita Lyons seemed promising, Stark shocked everyone by betraying her partner. From that point forward until her call-up to the main roster, she carved a path of dominance. However, when the opportunity to learn from a legend like Trish Stratus presented itself, Stark couldn't resist.

Embracing the chance to grow under Stratus' tutelage, she expressed her gratitude for the guidance she has received. "She has been teaching me every trick in the book," Stark shared a sense of admiration in her voice. "From mental preparation to handling opponents like Becky Lynch, she has been an incredible mentor and leader." While specifics of their training weren't revealed during the interview, the dynamic duo assured the WWE Universe that they had devised several strategic plans, or as they playfully referred to them, "Stratus-gies," to secure victory at the upcoming Women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

As fans eagerly await this high-stakes event, the partnership between Trish Stratus and Zoey Stark continues to captivate the WWE landscape, showcasing the fusion of experience and potential that promises to leave a lasting impact in the ring.
