Trish Stratus has given the clearest indication yet that her WWE career isn’t quite over.
In February 2023, Trish Stratus returned to WWE to come to the aid of Becky Lynch as she battled Bayley and Damage CTRL. This led to Stratus teaming with Lynch and fellow Hall of Famer Lita at WrestleMania 39 to take on Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky.
It was believed that Stratus wouldn’t be sticking around after WrestleMania, but that soon changed. On the April 10th episode of Raw, Stratus turned on Lynch, setting up a lengthy rivalry between the pair which ended at Payback.
Appearing on GAW TV, Stratus reflected on her most recent run and hinted that she could do it all again in 2024.
“2023 was probably the most insane year I’ve had on all fronts,” Stratus said. “I did not expect…I returned to wrestling, obviously, a little mini-program turned into six months. So much fun. I
have a lot of things that are percolating and we’ll let you know when we can let you know. I’m excited. We’re on a roll here. Good things are happening, new opportunities and stuff that I didn’t even think I could tap into that I am. It’s been fun. I can’t wait.
“Honestly, at the end of the day, the support from my Stratospherians, we are so thankful for everyone. They are what drive us; they’re what make us, and your interests are what make the interests, and therefore, we are a thing. T
hank you to all my Stratospherians for coming out, for supporting, and it was so fun when I went back to wrestling, tapping into ‘if you know you know’ moments and having that ‘Oh, I loved when she did that back in the day.’ That was fun. I look forward to doing that again next year. I’m so excited.”
Trish Stratus Given Emotional Farewell At Payback
At Payback, Stratus and Lynch met in an acclaimed Steel Cage Match which The Man won. The bout was praised by fans and critics, with Stratus rolling back the years to cap off her longest WWE run since 2006.
Following the match, Trish Stratus was given a standing ovation and serenaded with chants of “Thank you Trish” as fans paid tribute to the WWE legend, believing they may have just seen her last match.
