Backstage Update On Trish Stratus' WWE Future

Latest on Trish Stratus' WWE status and new role with Zoey Stark.

WWE Night Of Champions 2023 Trish Stratus Zoey Stark

Trish Stratus is to remain a regular fixture on WWE after aligning herself with former NXT star Zoey Stark in recent weeks.

PWInsider's Mike Johnson reports that adding Stark to Trish's ongoing feud with Becky Lynch wasn't done to give Stratus a "proxy" in the storyline. Instead, Trish is to keep making regular appearances on Monday nights, doing so as often as possible.


Stark was unveiled as a Trish ally at Night Of Champions 2023 last week, where she helped the WWE Hall of Famer to a win over Lynch. The feud contained on Monday's Raw, too, with Stratus and Stark laying Becky out, keeping the heat going.

There is currently no word on how long, exactly, this current Stratus run will continue. The Canadian has been back in WWE since February, when she aligned herself with Lita and Lynch, who were Women's Tag Team Champions at the time. Trish then turned heel to launch the Becky feud in April. A few weeks later, she was formally drafted to WWE.


Stark moved from NXT to the main roster in the 2023 WWE Draft, joining Raw after a two-year developmental stint.
