“The Wrestler” On DVD, Trish On Women’s Division: “Disappointing”

Nick Paglino

"The Wrestler," starring Mickey Rourke, will be released on Blu-Ray and standard DVD tomorrow.

Former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus recently sat down for an interview with The Times and Transcript and the following is an excerpt from that interview:

"There was a bit of re-educating that needed to happen with the fans, I think at first. It was like, ‘Wait, we’re going to do something more than just come out here in our bikini.’

"If you watch back to some of my early wrestling matches, where I would say I was not polished yet, I was kind of learning … people were waiting for the bras and panties because tops were being ripped off for some random reason in the beginning. That was the reaction at first."

She says the current state of WWE’s women’s division leaves a lot to be desired. Storylines, character development and in-ring action aren’t really the focus.

"It is disappointing," she says. "I think what it is, they have too many women. And I think they can’t even see who’s who because there’s so many of them. I think they need someone maybe that can focus on the women." You can read the full article by clicking here
