WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus is a seven-time Women’s Champion and there is no doubt that other promotions wanted to sign her. She recently revealed that she received offers from other wrestling promotions such as WCW, ECW, and TNA.
Trish Stratus reveals TNA reached out to her
During a recent interaction with Shakiel Mahjouri of ET Canada, Trish Stratus recalled TNA, currently known as IMPACT Wrestling, reaching out to her several years ago. But she never made the jump to the promotion and remained with WWE.
“There was a time when TNA had reached out to me around the time they were introducing the new women’s championship. There was a storyline pitched like, ‘Hey, women are a viable part of the show and we would like you to be a part of it.’ Back then, it was like, ‘Hey, we use women as part of the show. Would you like to be a part of it?’ That’s what it was. I knew what I could do, I knew the training I’d done and what I could offer to the world of sports entertainment as an athlete, but I don’t know if they necessarily knew,” Stratus said.
During the interview, the WWE legend further commented on working with former WWE writer Brian Gerwitz in the company. According to her, the latter played a major role in some of the stuff that she did on TV.
“Brian Gerwitz is a writer who was with WWE. He was a huge part of a lot of the good, juicy work that I did. Working with my promos. He worked with The Rock a lot, that was kind of his guy, and I got the chance to work with him. He was really good about tapping into who you are and way overt amplifying your personality out there and keeping it real. I think the authentic superstars that people resonate with.”
