I handpicked Lita to be my opponent in my retirement match: Trish Stratus
Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, who was promoting the Women in Wrestling Fan Expo & Banquet this Saturday from the Coastline Convention Center in Wilmington, N.C. During the interview, Stratus discussed her "Team Bestie" partner Lita, Total Divas and more.
Below are some highlights:
Her retirement match with Lita:
"I think it really became more special during the end of my career when I had the retirement match with her. To me, it meant a lot. Did I hand pick her as my opponent? Yes, I did. I proposed that idea to Vince [McMahon], and he loved it. I thought, 'Great, I can't think of a better way to go out than with my best friend, a fellow co-worker who I had this rivalry with my entire career.'"
"People are really talking about them. They are the next generation that will be something to talk about. We talk about the golden era that was my time. They may have the platinum era from what I have seen. They are doing amazing."
If she would team with Lita to face The Bella Twins:
"I think the idea is interesting. 'Team Bestie' is up for anything. If the fans want it, who knows? When Amy and I were working against each other, we were having fantastic matches because we knew each other's motions and body movements. I think as a team we could utilize that same chemistry, but channel it in a different way."
Trish also discussed not wanting to have "chick matches," Terri Runnels, working with Lisa Marie Varon and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
