WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus has confirmed she’s held talks regarding a potential NXT role. Speaking on the Women’s Wrestling Talk podcast., the former Women’s Champion opened up about how she’d love to work with NXT in some capacity, but stated that she wouldn’t be able to go on the road.

When asked about the possibility of writing or coaching in WWE, Stratus was enthusiastic about the prospect, but admitted there’s one thing stopping her.

“I would love to, I love the idea of it. The reality is it comes with the road – and I just couldn’t do the road because of my family, but I’d love to contribute in some way.”

Stratus opened up about how, whenever she returns to WWE, she particularly enjoys talking to the younger female talents about their outlooks on the business, before stating that working with Fit Finlay about the art of storytelling stimulated her and thought working with the former European Champion could be fruitful for the stars of NXT.

“We [Trish Stratus and Fit Finlay] would be, like, co-agenting probably. We would be awesome but, I would like to contribute in some way and I’ve talked to Matt Bloom, my former partner, about possibly going to NXT. We’ve talked about it on a number of occasions. It’s just like… It’s never the right time has come about to do that.”

Earlier this month, Triple H also revealed to Inside The Ropes how The Undertaker is set to join NXT in a backstage role in the new year. There’s no doubt Trish Stratus would be a great addition, too. Meanwhile, WWE Hall of Famer Stratus also mentioned how she “might have been training” in anticipation of a sequel to Evolution, but that the call never came.
