WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus recently opened up about her exhilarating return to WWE in 2023, sparking speculation about her future in the ring. During an interview with Chris Van Vliet at the premiere of "The Iron Claw," a film chronicling the Von Erich wrestling dynasty, Stratus reflected on her latest stint, which featured a high-profile feud with Becky Lynch, culminating in a steel cage showdown at WWE Payback.
Stratus, a trailblazer in women's wrestling, expressed satisfaction with her recent run, highlighting the new opportunities it presented. "When I embarked on the journey, I came back for WrestleMania, 'Let's do this little program.'
Suddenly, heel Trish had to come alive. Then, it just kept going and going. I got to do things I didn't get to do, right? Ladder Match, Saudi Arabia, Cage Match. To be able to dip my toes into the current landscape and check boxes that I wasn't able to check back in the day was pretty amazing," she said.
The possibility of becoming an eight-time champion was also enticing to her, leaving fans wondering if she's eyeing another title run. Beyond her own achievements, Stratus played a pivotal role in elevating rising star Zoey Stark.
Stark, now set for a Women's World Championship match against Rhea Ripley at WWE Survivor Series, benefited greatly from her association with Stratus. This event holds special significance for Stratus, as it marks 22 years since she captured her first WWE Women's Championship at the same event.
Stratus's Lasting Legacy
Stratus's impact on the women's division is undeniable. Her recent run not only showcased her enduring prowess in the ring but also underscored her role in shaping the future of women's wrestling.
As she ponders her next move, fans eagerly await, wondering if the legendary wrestler will lace up her boots for another historic run or if she's ready to close this chapter of her storied career. With her legacy firmly established, Trish Stratus remains a pivotal figure in the evolution of women's wrestling, inspiring a new generation of athletes.
