20 Things You Didn’t Know About Trish Stratus

A full 20 years of Stratusfaction. Guaranteed.

Trish Stratus made her WWE debut on the 19 March 2000 episode of Sunday Night Heat.

Feel old yet? That was 20 years ago, and exactly nobody could've guessed back then that the former fitness model would go on to become one of wrestling's most progressive female superstars. Before reaching that pedestal of greatness, Trish had to fight for change and eat some sh*t by way of the biz's eye candy approach to the ladies.

It's incredible to look back on the past two decades and see everything that Stratus has achieved; she's a seven-time Women's Champion, helped influence countless modern-day heroines like Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Natalya and more, successfully battled back against her initial sex-on-legs status and even won the old Hardcore Title in 2002.

Since leaving full-time wrestling behind in 2006, Stratus has been inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, opened an award-winning yoga studio, starred in some films and TV shows, launched a memorable comeback for just "one more match" at SummerSlam 2019 and more.

She's a legend, and there's no better time than now to scour both WWE documentaries and other interviews for scraps of knowledge about her...
