Trish Stratus recently spoke with The Toronto Sun. Here are some highlights from the interview.
Being a Randy Savage fan growing up: “‘Macho Man’ (Randy Savage) was the man to me. I mean don’t get me wrong, I definitely was a Hulkamaniac because I think we all were. But Macho Man, I just thought he was great, just so charismatic and I really loved his ring work. I loved how athletic he was. I was actually … just watching a string of his promos the other day, and it’s just, ‘Wow, he’s just untouchable.’”
Her WWE retirement match: “First of all, of course, to have that moment in my home town… my contract was actually ending in August and Vince had come to me and said, ‘You know, if you stick around for one more month, we have a really cool opportunity. We’re going to be in Toronto and we could have your retirement match there.’”
Lita not being her Hall of Fame inductor: “I have someone and you’ll just have to wait… That’s obviously been swirling around [Lita inducting her]. It was a difficult choice. There’s a number of people that have really, really impacted my career. In my speech, you’ll know the choice I made is very clear. But you’ll know soon enough.”
