WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus has discussed a possible return to WWE but questions if “being a babyface” would be boring.
Trish Stratus defined women’s wrestling in WWE in the Attitude Era and the years following, going on to become a seven-time WWE Women’s Champion. Stratus took her rightful place in the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2013 but since then she has returned several times to the company.
The last time Trish Stratus laced up her boots in anger was at SummerSlam 2019 when she fell to defeat in her native Toronto against Charlotte Flair.
Now speaking at a convention promoted by For The Love Of Wrestling Trish Stratus says she’d gladly accept a return to WWE but teases she’d want to do something very different:
“Do I want to be GM? I would gladly accept that role. I always think — like I said, to go back, it has to be something challenging, something different, something different for you guys. You know, you just don’t wanna see me being a babyface, kicking butt, winning championships, boring, right guys? Do we or would you — I don’t know. I can’t read the crowd. I’m not sure what they want. What do you guys want? What do you want? What should I do next?”
Stratus then discussed her friend and rival Lita’s recent return to WWE and says watching Lita tangle with Becky Lynch gave her the itch to step between the ropes again:
“Yeah, to be honest, it did. I was lucky, a couple of weeks later… the live event was so much fun because it was just after that and I got a chance to go back and it was in Toronto and in another town near me at home so I just drove in, took my kids and yeah, you get in there, you feel the energy of the crowd, you do some promos, you do some slapping and it’s just like, oh, it’s such — it’s good.”
“So I love it, it’ll always be in my blood, you know? I did a post and it said, ‘I’ll never not feel at home between these ropes’, right? So it’s in me forever. The cool thing is sometimes we go back and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can I do this? Like it’s been a while’ and the last time — the first time I went back after many years was to fight Charlotte [Flair] for a singles match.”
“It had been like 11 years and two children later so I was like, ‘I don’t know’ and you don’t know until you actually have the match. You can practice and you can roll around in the ring but you don’t know until you actually get in there.”
