With her match against Alexa Bliss at the first-ever all-Women’s pay-per-view WWE Evolution just three weeks away, Trish Stratus will return to Raw tonight!
What will the WWE Hall of Famer have to say to Five Feet of Fury? And will The Goddess of WWE feet the sting of Stratusfaction ahead of their historic showdown?
Proud. Honoured. Nervous. (But don’t tell Alexa Bliss that!). When we were competing in the so called ‘Golden Era’, we never could have imagined we’d be where we are today – an all-women’s pay-per-view. It’s amazing, as back then we felt accomplished just getting a match on a pay-per-view event, and here we are with an entire event devoted to us!
Stratus also praised today’s generation of Superstars:
It makes me proud knowing the blood, sweat and tears we shed have helped pave the path, but it’s the work of the women of today that have carved a viable and credible place for women in WWE. I’m honoured and humbled to have been asked back to participate. I think pairing me with Alexa Bliss – a woman who in a very short time has accomplished so much – is great as there is a definite parallel to our careers. I think seeing the generational faceoff is intriguing to fans. We’re bringing together the past and present – conceptually it is exciting.
And finally, Stratus noted which Superstars she sees are most influenced by her:
I’ve seen some of my signature moves from today’s talent. I don’t blame them, as they are effective moves. Carmella does the Stratusphere, Liv Morgan does The MaTrish … but it’s Alexa Bliss’ in-ring presence that got people talking (and making comparisons). She has spoken about being a fan and studying my work and so it is humbling to see shades of Trish Stratus in her matches, which I think is what makes this matchup special.
What do you think will happen on tonight’s episode of Raw?
