WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus will be adding another accolade to her illustrious career. She posted on her social media accounts that she is the next recipient of the prestigious Lou Thesz Award.
This award is from the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame and she is the first woman to earn this. The nod is provided by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum.
Stratus provided her response on her official website:
“To be receiving this award, named after one of our industry’s greatest is truly humbling. And to be the first female means so much – I am beyond honored”, Stratus said after learning the news. “It gives me hope as a female that our work is being acknowledged and to be able to take our place in history means everything.”
Fellow WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix was also recognized by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame last year. Phoenix became the very first woman to be be inducted into a Hall of Fame class last year. She was a previous winner of the Frank Gotch award.
Congratulations to Trish on this amazing honor!
