WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus made an electrifying return to assist Lita and Becky Lynch this week on RAW.

Becky and Lita faced Dakota Kai and IYO SKY of Damage CTRL this week for the Women's Tag Team Championship. The two former women's champions were doing an excellent job in the ring, but Bayley appeared to tilt the odds in favor of the champs.

At that moment, Trish's music hit, and she rushed out to attack The Role Model to bring things under control. Her presence at ringside ensured that Becky and Lita won the match and were crowned new women's tag champs.

In an exclusive backstage interview, Trish told Cathy Kelly that she had a feeling Bayley would try to interfere in the match. She mentioned she was on the lookout for an opportunity and came out to the ring when the moment was right.

"Listen, I knew these guys could handle it for the most part, but you know, Bayley is a little sneaky. So, I had my eye out." [From 0:52 - 0:58]

Trish Stratus had her last match at WWE SummerSlam 2019

It has been almost four years since Trish Stratus had a match on WWE TV. The Hall of Famer last competed at SummerSlam 2019 against Charlotte Flair.

Trish ended her career in 2006 and retired as the women's champion. At the time, she was the most decorated champion, with seven titles to her name.

However, she returned to Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena for a farewell match against The Queen. Although the seven-time women's champion came up short against Flair, the Toronto crowd gave her a standing ovation befitting the Hall of Famer.
