Stratus is marketed as the first woman in WWE history to have held the WWE Women's Championship six times.
She turned back face when she made her return on raw with Ashley.
Trish: I want people to go 'Oh right, Trish Stratus. She was the greatest Women's Champion ever.'
Trish: I just feel that I want to leave my mark in the ring. And I want to walk away, unlike how people will say about Torrie Wilson, 'Oh yeah, she's the one that did Playboy.' And I don't want that to be overshadowed by anything I do in the ring.
Trish: I've been sitting at home and watching how the RAW landscape has changed.
Trish: And I was lucky too, that when I turned heel, it breathed new life into my character. And that allowed me to do SO much more.
Trish: And I'm so thankful that I've been allowed to show another side of Trish.
Trish: And in the future, you know, maybe there's kids in the future for me, I don't really know. The interesting thing with me is that there has never been a woman doing what I'm doing at this level for this long. So, it's like, would Vince give me maternity leave?
Trish: And that's what I've learned too: writing is key.
Trish: Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter to the publishers that the magazine would have sold more copies with me on the cover.
Trish: As far as luxury goes, about the only thing I do is... I go first class all the way. I live on the road, so when I'm out there, I'm getting the nice hotel suite, I'm getting the luxury car, I'm eating the good food, and I make sure I take care of myself on the road.
Trish: As far as wrestling goes, as long as my body is able to withstand the physical beating, I will keep wrestling.
Trish: But as much as I am personally proud for winning five championships, I'm equally proud just being part of a women's division that has gotten so much better with all these great athletes here.
Trish: I don't wanna brag, but I'm a proven commodity I've been on over 50 magazine covers.
Trish: I lost a tooth in a hardcore match.
Trish: I think people get too comfortable, in just doing what they do every week. And I'm all about challenge and change, and I like to read the audience.
Trish: I'm good friends with The Rock, and I talk to him all the time. And he says that, even though his movie career has taken off, he misses the instant gratification of wrestling, and the live crowds, and I could see being that way myself.
Trish: Now, at this point, I can wrestle, I can go out there and cut an entertaining promo, I can also do the backstage stuff... and if you can contribute more to the show, you have more staying power.
Trish: There really isn't a day when I wake up and don't have to be someplace.
Trish: Recently, I went up to Casino Rama to see Martin Short's show, just to see how he put it all together. And after the show, I went backstage and picked his brain to find out why he did certain things.
Trish: Oh, gosh, okay... well, my biggest injury was probably a bone chip in my ankle that required surgery.
Trish: Well, actually, the Second City thing came about because I was taking a few improv classes there. I thought that the improv classes would help with my wrestling career, which it has.
