Following her recent heel turn on Becky Lynch, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus has been the talk of the women’s division and now seemingly has her sights set on championship gold.
Stratus came out of retirement and returned to action for a multi-generational six-woman tag team match at WrestleMania 39, but she wasn’t there to be a nostalgia act.
Two weeks after the Hollywood supershow, Stratus shockingly attacked both Lita and Lynch on the April 10th episode of Monday Night Raw, turning heel for the first time in almost 20 years.
Her heel turn gave weight to a previous report that Lynch and Stratus are set to clash at SummerSlam. But with the summer spectacular four months away the seven-time Women’s Champion is using this time to pay specific attention to the current women’s title holders.
Trish Stratus Has Her Eyes On WWE Championship Gold
Stratus was a guest on After The Bell with Corey Graves and gave her thoughts on SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley and Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.
“I’m loving watching the development, because for me, it was about being this valet, but then having a character, developing, and getting to know her as a character, and then watching her in her role, and I’ve seen this with Rhea Ripley. It’s been wonderful to watch. She’s pretty special and I’m so happy to see where she’s at.
Bianca, she’s someone special. She’s so athletic. I feel like she’s someone that is born to do what she does. It’s so natural and so effortless. I love seeing her.
She’s a great champion. I mean, could I dethrone her? Maybe? Probably, but I enjoy watching her. I think they’re both great and also both beautiful.”
Following on from her statement that she could be the one to dethrone Belair, Stratus then declared that her chances of winning the title again are pretty high.
“Pretty high. I guess the odds could be high. Do I look good in gold? Yes I do. Do I represent well? Yes, I do. Can I do your press conference? Yes, I can.”
