Trish Stratus recently took to her Instagram and uploaded a photo of herself working hard at the gym.
It’s officially #WrestleMania SZN
Better, stronger, faster.
Although it was rumored that WWE had plans to do Becky Lynch, Lita, and Trish Stratus vs. Damage CTRL at the 2023 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event, the match was pushed back to WWE WrestleMania 39 instead.
Plans for Stratus to return to WWE television to set up the match were changed a few times.
While speaking on the “Getting Over” podcast, Stratus was asked whether she had any frustrations about changes being made. She said,
“No. Everything has been pretty smooth, to be honest. I know there were little online rumblings, but everything happens for a reason. There are definitely a lot of gut intuitions going into making these decisions, and I think we landed at the right place at the right time. I’m excited where it landed. It’s just enough time before Mania, it’s the right dynamic, the right timing, the girls have the tag team titles, unexpected. What a moment. Nobody expected that. For me, there was so much buzz about me, people forgot about me, then I surprised them again. Everything played out really well, I think, in a way where this world can be predicted, ‘ah, we know what’s happening tonight,’ I think we did it in a nice way that it’s exciting and people didn’t know what’s coming next. Still, there is so much more that can happen between now and Mania. It’s exciting. There is a good build up now, because when I came back for Charlotte, we didn’t have much time to build it. Here, we have a nice little bit of time to build into Mania.”
