In an interview with SI.com, former 7x Women’s Champion Trish Stratus discussed Sasha Banks, her wrestling persona and more. Below are some excerpts from the interview:

On Sasha Banks: “Sasha, to me, is a star,” said Stratus. “There are a lot of comparisons, but I don’t think we are that similar, actually, at all. But she’s the star of the division, and she’s the one. She really knows her character, she owns her character, and she’s so solid in the ring.”

“The ‘Revolution’ began with us,” said Stratus, who was a seven-time WWE women’s champion. “It was a change in the way women were perceived in the business.”

On main eventing RAW and her character: “We got to the building that day, and there was a board with all of the matches written on it,” said Stratus. “Amy and I were riding together, and we thought the board wasn’t complete or that they hadn’t written the main event yet. Then one of the agents–Fit Finlay–said to us, ‘Are you ready for this?’ Then upper management started coming over and saying congrats, and I was like, ‘Holy sh–, this is a big moment.’”

“We got to the building that day, and there was a board with all of the matches written on it,” said Stratus. “Amy and I were riding together, and we thought the board wasn’t complete or that they hadn’t written the main event yet. Then one of the agents–Fit Finlay–said to us, ‘Are you ready for this?’ Then upper management started coming over and saying congrats, and I was like, ‘Holy sh–, this is a big moment.’

“Vince is behind any character that draws interest on his show,” said Stratus. “Does it draw ratings, interest, and evoke emotion? We did at the time.”

“That was all the girls involved, the writers, and Fit Finlay,” said Stratus. “Finlay was there to help me and guide me. He is the one who brought the Trish Stratus character alive. He saw it in me and brought it out of me. He knew I had it in me, and every match I wanted to do better than the last one. I was fighting for him, and he was my coach.”
