WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus has opened up on what she’d like to do if she returned to WWE once more.

Trish Stratus is a seven-time WWE Women’s Champion, and was one of the cornerstones for how the division developed during the Attitude Era. Since being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2013, Stratus has continued to make sporadic appearances for the company.

The most recent forray into the squared circle for Stratus came at SummerSlam 2019, where she went toe-to-toe with Charlotte Flair before coming up just short.

Speaking as part of the For The Love Of Wrestling convention in Liverpool last month, Trish Stratus teased that she doesn’t necessarily just want to return as a competitor and would like something a little more challenging.

Do I want to be GM? I would gladly accept that role. I always think — like I said, to go back, it has to be something challenging, something different, something different for you guys. You know, you just don’t wanna see me being a babyface, kicking butt, winning championships, boring, right guys? Do we or would you — I don’t know. I can’t read the crowd. I’m not sure what they want. What do you guys want? What do you want? What should I do next?

Trish Stratus went on to admit that seeing Lita lace up her boots once more earlier this year to take on Becky Lynch has left her feeling a bit of the desire to return to action.

Yeah, to be honest, it did. I was lucky, a couple of weeks later… the live event was so much fun because it was just after that and I got a chance to go back and it was in Toronto and in another town near me at home so I just drove in, took my kids and yeah, you get in there, you feel the energy of the crowd, you do some promos, you do some slapping and it’s just like, oh, it’s such — it’s good.

So I love it, it’ll always be in my blood, you know? I did a post and it said, ‘I’ll never not feel at home between these ropes’, right? So it’s in me forever. The cool thing is sometimes we go back and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can I do this? Like it’s been a while’ and the last time — the first time I went back after many years was to fight Charlotte [Flair] for a singles match.

It had been like 11 years and two children later so I was like, ‘I don’t know’ and you don’t know until you actually have the match. You can practice and you can roll around in the ring but you don’t know until you actually get in there.
