WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus has a new movie, Gridlocked, out, so the Canadian is on a bit of a press tour to promote the direct-to-digital action flick.
As she told WWE.com, she’s never surprised by how well-known she is for her wrestling past - even almost a decade after she retired as Women’s champ. So it makes sense she’d spend some time chatting about ring life while talking about working with Danny Glover in her latest film.
As a guest on Ring Rust Radio, the 40 year old mother of one explained she’s game for a comeback, and proposed a couple of intriguing names as potential dance partners:
The line I have always given people for the past ten years is, “Who would you guys like to see me fight?” For a while, people really didn’t know who they would want to see me fight and make it worthwhile.
Would it make sense for me to come back and fight Sasha? I will never close the door if there is something that will challenge me. It would have to be a challenge to me, it would have to elevate someone else on the show and it would need to be something exciting for the fans. What do they want to see?
They always ask who I would go back to work for and one person is Nattie. She isn’t one of the top current girls, but I never got a chance to work with her and it would be kind of dream to be able to. If I could return and have some challenging and good matches, I would have no doubt in coming back. Just as long as I could keep up in the ring, I think I would be OK.
Setting aside for the moment that Trish may not be keeping up with the product, seeing as how Natalya has been feuding for the Women’s title (and just getting television time counts as being a “top girl” right now), she’s saying all the right things here.
As an actress and fitness entrepreneur, Stratus is probably as close to ring-ready as someone who hasn’t wrestled since 2006 can be. And if she’s game...
Would you like to see a comeback match for Trish, or would that not be good for her legacy? Would it help or hurt the ladies currently struggling to earn more time and respect in WWE?
