WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus was recently a guest on Busted Open Radio to discuss her upcoming in-ring return against Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam. Stratus explained why this match against Flair is a “good ending” for her career.
“No, oh my God. 100 percent, like, how much more closure could you get being away for this long already. Like, at that point it had been—I guess three or four years I had been officially retired, and then I have a baby,” Stratus said. “Things have changed, you know? So many moms, there’s so many moms now that people on the road—I heard [Mark] Carano set up a kid room in one of the big pay-per-views because that’s what they were needing. So, who knew?
I always sort of said, retirement is a loose term in wrestling, but I always said that if there was something that was A) challenging B) gonna be something for someone else, I would consider it. You know, and of course, I love wrestling, it’s something that’s always going to be part of me, part of my life, I watch it, I follow it, even if I don’t do it every day.
“There’s opportunities like when this came up was something that was like ‘Gosh this has to happen.’” Stratus said. “Charlotte and I in the ring, it was just like you couldn’t put together a better—I feel like this is sort of a good final match for me. I don’t think you could really do anything more than this. Like, ‘Hey we got this quick shot of you on RAW against so and so,’ it’s just, yeah, you know what, you can’t top that match that I had. It feels like a good ending for me. A real ending. You know what I mean?”
