Trish Stratus Talks Performing At WrestleMania, Differences Between Wrestling & Acting And What Current WWE Stars Use Yoga
by Matthew Harrak on March 1, 2012

Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of The Score Television Network had a chance to sit down and interview former 6 time WWE Womens Champion, Trish Stratus in Part 2 of this exclusive interview. Here are the highlights:

Comparing fighting in the WWE for so many years to fighting in movies. How is that all different to her:

“So different. We approached it from a tradional movie stand point, which means we have to do stunt work. The concept of not making contact in movies was difficult for me because in WWE, we made contact. It’s very different from stunt work. I tip my hat off to the director because he told his cast, whatever you wanna do with this script, go with it, make it look real, have fun with it, play with it.”

Her match at Wrestlemania 18 in her hometown of Toronto, Onatrio where she faced Jazz and Lita in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Womens Championship. Her match was just after the bout between The Rock and Hulk Hogan. Was it bittersweet for her to be in that position at Wrestlemania 18?

“Looking at it on the paper, I’m like ‘Oh my God! I can’t believe we’re in this match!’ It was really a tough act to follow. The crowd actually was with us which was great because it was a testament to the hard work that the Women’s division had done to that point. Something interesting had happened. When the guys (The Rock and Hulk Hogan) had their match, the one thing I remember was I was about to go out to preform and it’s my first WrestleMania as a wrestler and I got the head’s up from Hulk and The Rock. Rock said to me ‘Good luck. Go get ‘em kid.’ And Hulk Hogan just said “You got this, kid.'”

On her yoga studio, “Stratusphere Yoga”, has she ever approached other WWE superstars about recommending trying yoga themselves?

“I have, actually all the girls right now are doing it, the Stratusphere yoga right now. DDP and I have been in touch. Randy Orton started doing it. Rey Mysterio, when he came back from his injury was like ‘You look great what are you doing? How did you make that comeback from that herniated disk?’ I told him about the yoga and he started trying that as well.”

    Great article, Matt. I have always adored Trish and she was the queen bee for the divas division in her era. She is my favorite diva of all-time other than Lita, Beth Phoenix and Eve. In short, she’s awesome.

    Currently, the only divas that might match her are Eve and Beth Phoenix. Eve’s new heel persona is a mix of Maryse and Trish as they were both arrogant heels for a while. As for Beth, she is the dominant diva which also reminds me of Trish’s seven reigns as the Women’s Champion. Both resemble Trish but in different ways.

    Wrestling. Yoga expert. Actor. Trish is still the total package IMO. Cheers, mate!!!
