Stratus and Lita revolutionised the wrestling business with their rivalry and changed the way women’s wrestling was viewed in WWE. They fought each other on multiple occasions and had many great matches. Most notably they fought for the women’s championship in the main event of Monday Night RAW in 2004.
Stratus recently appeared on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast. In the interview, she spoke fondly about Lita, their rivalry and likened it to a legendary WWE feud.
Here’s what Stratus had to say;
“Our rivalry is decades-long, we have that dynamic of the ying and the yang of us, that’s what fans love about us. They dug us, dare I say a Rock – Austin. They knew they were going to get something good because there is so much history behind us. There was also the history with us being valets too, which is such a good way of showing characters. We got to do the crazy intergender stuff too, her with Rock and me with Triple H in the main event. So we are going through this and we have this fantastic opportunity to change history. We were riding together and going on this meteoric rise together. To share that is super special. I made Lita my son’s Godmother. I wanted to make her part of the family. We talk pretty much every day.”
The rivalry gave Stratus and Lita legendary status and saw them both become multi-time champions and inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame.
