10 Things WWE Wants You To Forget About Trish Stratus
10. She Is Indirectly Responsible For Models Taking Over WWE
If you don't like how WWE hires some of their women based on the fact that they are models instead of wrestlers you can blame Trish Stratus for that. Don't blame her directly because that's a WWE office decision, but indirectly it has to do with her. Before her, most of the women in WWE had experience. Women like Ivory, Jacqueline, Marlena, Sunny and Tori came from the wrestling business. After her, they tried hiring women with a background that was similar. Then they even expanded it to include the Diva Search in the mid-2000s too. Trish was hired due to her experience as a fitness model and because the university she was attending had a strike, so that's how she got started modelling. She was a wrestling fan that was on the Live Audio Wrestling Show in Toronto as well, but she had never had a match before she signed with WWE. In her case it worked out. Some other fitness models with no experience failed miserably. In a way it's a good thing, but it's bad in the sense that they keep hiring women that may or may not have an interest in wrestling. It would be better if WWE hired more women that are experienced wrestlers instead of models although they will keep bringing in models because they are always looking for the next Trish Stratus.
