WWE Legend Denies They’ve Retired

WWE Hall Of Famer Responds To Accusations That They Politicked Their Way To World Title

Two WWE legends could get back in the ring.

“Retirement” is often a dirty word in wrestling, with the likes of Mick Foley, Terry Funk, and Ric Flair, all retiring on several occasions. As a result, many performers simply take the approach of wrestling until they stop getting booked or their body gives out, whichever happens first.

Trish Stratus initially retired back in 2006, but the allure of the squared circle has proven too much. The star has wrestled several times since then, returning for a full-time run in 2023 to feud with Becky Lynch.

During a Q&A panel with Going Ringside, Stratus and her long-time friend and fellow legend Lita discussed their careers and what might be next. When talk turned to retirement, Stratus joked she didn’t know the meaning of the word.

“Retirement? What is retirement? I’m not familiar with this word. I don’t know anything about this word. We just stay ready. That’s a general statement that we [Trish & Lita] like to live by, just in case,”

Lita added that given how plans can change, anything’s possible.

“Which is good because you don’t usually have a lot of heads up on what you’re doing or what the plan is, and if you did, it most likely will change. It kind of informed myself to never get too excited until you walk through the curtain. It could change five times between when you’re presented with an idea to when it’s executed.”

Trish Stratus And Lita Almost Featured At WWE WrestleMania

Trish Stratus and Lita were originally scheduled to appear at WrestleMania 40, but plans were changed late in the day. The pair were scheduled to appear during the Hall of Fame segment on night two, but those plans were nixed. The Hall of Fame class of 2024 was made up of Paul Heyman, Muhammad Ali, Bull Nakano, the US Express, Lia Maivia, and Thunderbolt Patterson.

Stratus was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013, and Lita was inducted a year later.
