– SLAM! Wrestling conducted an interview with former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus at an autograph signing this past Tuesday in downtown Toronto. Stratus was signing copies of Inside Fitness magazine and wrestling memorabilia for her loyal fans.
Stratus discussed her one-off appearance on Raw last month. She said she practiced her “Matrix” move “at least 40 times” prior to the show (which she used against opponent Santino Marella) to make sure she could still do it. Stratus also said it would be hard to pass off wrestling at WrestleMania 25. Stratus said she had not been contacted about appearing, but left the impression that something could come together in the future.
“I would definitely like the chance to finish off what I started with Beth in a one-on-one scenario,” Stratus said. “No tagging out, no Santino shenanigans, just one dominant female against the other.”
Stratus also said she wouldn’t mind wrestling another WWE Diva in Natalya.
“Nattie I think is going to be a major player soon, given the right chance to do what she does best,” Stratus said. “Everyone knows how much I respect the Hart lineage, using Bret’s sharpshooter in my retirement match, wearing the pink and black boots in Toronto … it’s not a coincidence. So I would be honoured to face someone who is a part of that legacy and I have no doubt in my mind that we could blow away an audience.”
Stratus also wanted fans to know that she does not have a page on Facebook as there are a number of pages impersonating her on the social networking site. However, she does indeed have a page on MySpace.com.
“It would be great to clear up that I can be found on MySpace only. I am not on Facebook. That way no one is duped into thinking they are communicating with me when they are not,” Stratus said to make things clear.
