Another former WWE Women’s Champion was originally asked to be present at the Slammy Awards this past Monday — Trish Stratus.
According to PWInsider, WWE officials had wanted to reunite Trish and Lita to present the Divalicious Moment of the Year award together, however, the 7-time Women’s Champion, who has already made a comeback this year, turned down the offer.
The website reports that Trish opted not to take part due to the long travel from her hometown of Toronto, Canada to Norfolk, Virginia, where the show emanated from.
Thoughts: While it would’ve been great to see Lita and Trish back together, I can respect Trish’s decision. The appearance would have been two-three minutes at most, and factoring in travel days to and from Toronto, where Trish is extremely busy with her own business, it probably didn’t make sense. Trish has had a few appearances this year, so in the end, I think it really did work out. Lita got to have her moment and it was a great one at that.
