Trish Stratus’ first match in nearly a year involved her not wrestling at all

Was this intentional or just a blunder from WWE?

This week on Raw, WWE hyped up Trish Stratus stepping in the ring for the first time since the night after Evolution, last October. Stratus would team with Natalya against the team of Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. WWE even announced the match before the broadcast.

Then the nearly ten minute match happened and Stratus wasn’t tagged in once. Interesting move, with the tag match ending when Flair walked out on Lynch and Nattie got herself DQ’d for hanging on to the Sharpshooter too long.

The only physical action Stratus got was a firm push from Natalya after the WWE Hall of Famer tried to break-up the submission applied to Lynch.

WWE kept Flair and Stratus apart in this match, but other than that they didn’t do a whole lot to build towards their match at SummerSlam. Stratus is a living legend and perhaps WWE should have started her feud with Flair sooner than one week ago.

Excited for Trish Stratus versus Charlotte Flair still?
