Exclusive: Trish Stratus Talks WWE Hall of Fame Induction, Stephanie McMahon, Her Speech & More

In just three short days, WWE will add the most decorated and popular female in company history to its hallowed Hall of Fame. It’s always been a no-brainer since Trish Stratus‘ retirement in 2006 that the multi-time Women’s Champion would one day be inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame — it was simply a matter of when.

A seven-time Women’s Champion, a former Hardcore Champion, Diva of the Decade, Babe of the Year, and first ever Diva Dirt Legacy Award recipient, Trish defined an era, arguably the greatest era the Divas division has ever seen.

Just days before having her name etched in WWE history forever, Trish was gracious enough to spare some time for us here at Diva Dirt in her fourth interview in as many years for the website.

We talk to the soon-to-be Hall of Famer about how she found out about her induction, why she picked Stephanie McMahon to induct her, how her speech is coming and of course, it wouldn’t be a Diva Dirt interview without quizzing our golden gal on what she’ll be wearing! (So. Excited.)

Trish also talks about her thoughts on this year’s WrestleMania match, pitting the Bella Twins against Cameron and Naomi in an eight-person tag match, her thoughts on Diva of the moment, AJ Lee, and who she thinks should be next inducted into the Hall of Fame. (We’ll give you a hint: It’s exactly who you think.)
