Patricia (Trish) Anne Stratigias (born December 18, 1975
in Richmond Hill, Ontario), better known by her stage and ring name,
Trish Stratus, is a Canadian professional wrestler, fitness model,
and comedian, currently working for World Wrestling Entertainment's
Stratus is marketed as the first woman in WWE history to have held
the WWE Women's Championship six times, two more than the four title
reigns of The Fabulous Moolah recognized by WWE.
As a fitness model, Stratus has been featured on the cover of many
major health and fitness magazines such as Musclemag, Flare and
Total Women's Fitness. She also released a calendar series called
"Dream Team" with fellow model, Stacey Lynn. As a sports
entertainer, she was proclaimed the WWE Diva of the Decade on RAW's
10th Anniversary show. She was voted "WWE Babe of the Year"
three times between 2001 and 2003, but was defeated in the 2004
competition by Stacy Keibler. She originally set out to become a
In 1997, with the WWF experiencing a change in "Attitude"
(rougher-edged characters like Stone Cold Steve Austin replacing
the clean-cut heroes of yore like Bret Hart), Patricia Anne Stratigias
was a student at York University in Toronto, working towards a B.Sc.
in Biology and Kinesiology with the intention of applying to medical
school. During the winter of 1997, the faculty labour union engaged
in strike action that lasted for over two months. This forced Stratigias
to wait out the labour dispute by finding work.
After accepting a job at a local gym, she found herself responding
to the urging of her peers there to become a fitness model for Muscle
Magazine. It happened that, around this time, she co-hosted a Canadian
pro wrestling talk show called Live Audio Wrestling. This caught
the attention of the WWF, whose agents told Stratigias that if she
felt she had more to offer than her looks alone, she should start
training for a wrestling career. Soon afterward, Stratigias began
training at the gym of Ron Hutchinson, the same facility where Superstars
like Edge and Christian had also trained for the ring. The WWF again
had contacted her in late-1999, and this time, Stratigias was ready
to start her career as a pro wrestler under the stage name, Trish
Stratus, having been a fan since her childhood. Growing up, Stratigias
idolized Hulk Hogan, and has siblings and relatives who helped increase
her interest in sports entertainment.
Her first WWF appearance took place on the March 19 edition of Sunday
Night Heat. Stratus appeared on the runway, scouting certain WWF
Superstars, in particular Test and Prince Albert. Not long after,
Stratus began her first role in the company, managing Test and Albert
in the tag team T and A. It was during her stint managing T and
A when Stratus had her first taste of punishment in the ring, being
driven through a table by The Dudley Boyz. She had been taunting
The Dudley Boyz for weeks, in particular Bubba Ray Dudley who was
notorious for his fondness for putting females through tables such
as Mae Young, and The Kat. Unlike many Divas before her, it only
served to wet Stratus's appetite for in-ring action.
More and more, Stratus found herself getting physically involved
in the action, taking her bumps from Superstars like The Big Show
and Chyna, and even suffering a stinkface from Rikishi. It was not
long before Stratus began competing in actual matches, one of the
earliest examples being a six-person tag team match at Fully Loaded
on July 23, as Stratus teamed with T & A to face The Hardy Boyz
and Lita. Although Stratus and her team lost the bout, she was not
about to leave that night without making her mark, and proceeded
to whip Lita with a leather strap before exiting the ring. Stratus
later managed Val Venis to win the Intercontinental Championship,
but seemed to be outgrowing managing, as she had bigger aspirations
on her mind. These aspirations included challenging for the WWF
Women's Championship on a number of occasions against Lita and Ivory,
although none of these attempts proved successful.
In early 2001, Stratus became involved in a storyline with WWF Chairman
Vince McMahon, during a time when Vince's wife Linda was "institutionalized"
following a demand Vince had made for a divorce during a live show
in Madison Square Garden in December 2000. Vince and Stratus's relationship
increasingly angered the boss's daughter, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley
and at No Way Out on February 25, Stratus and Stephanie squared
off, with "The Billion-Dollar Princess" scoring a tainted
win via the interference of William Regal. In the midst of a tag
team match that pitted Vince and Stratus against Regal and Stephanie,
Stratus found herself the victim of a grand set-up by Vince, Stephanie
and Regal. Regal executed the Regal Cutter on Stratus, and Stephanie
then dumped mud over Stratus's body. Vince stood over Stratus, and
he told her she was a toy that he had grown tired of playing with.
The following week on RAW, Stratus actually gave Vince an apology
for the disruption she felt she had caused in his life. Vince then
said that the apology would only be accepted if she stripped down
to her undergarments, got on all fours, and barked like a dog. Shockingly,
she did. Few knew however that this was all part of a master plan
Stratus had set into motion to embarrass her antagonist, and at
WrestleMania X-Seven a month later, it all became clear. During
a Street Fight between Vince and his son, then-World Championship
Wrestling (WCW) "owner" Shane McMahon, Stratus rolled
out a seemingly catatonic Linda McMahon in a wheelchair to the ring.
When the action was taken to the floor, Stratus walked up to Vince
and slapped the taste out of his mouth before chasing Stephanie
from ringside. Shortly thereafter, Linda stood up out of her wheelchair
and kicked Vince in the groin, enabling Shane to gain control of
the match and eventually pin his father.
After her situation with the McMahon family ended, Stratus began
focusing on wrestling full-time. On the April 23 edition of "Raw,"
Stratus was backstage promoting the "Divas in Hedonism"
video when she ran into Mr.McMahon. McMahon then placed her in a
match against Ivory in which if she lost, she would be forced to
join the Right to Censor. However, Stratus displayed some improved
in-ring ability, managing to pin Ivory following a modified bulldog.
During the WCW/ECW Invasion storyline, Stratus and Lita attempted
to put their past behind them and began focusing on taking out alliance
girls, Stacy Keibler and Torrie Wilson. At the Invasion Pay Per
View, the two WWF divas took down Wilson and Keibler in the first
ever tag team Bra and Panties Match with Mick Foley as the guest
referee. The following night on Raw, however, Stratus suffered an
injury in her "Paddle on a Pole" match against Wilson.
She underwent ankle surgery later in the summer. It would be at
least four months before Stratus would fully heal and be able to
continue her pursuit of wrestling glory. As she rehabilitated, Stratus
kept herself visible by co-hosting Excess on TNN. When she was not
doing the show, Stratus continued training and rehabilitation, preparing
herself for her comeback in the ring. She received extensive ring
training from Dave Finlay, a former WCW Television Champion. Finlay's
schoolings served Stratus well; by the time she returned to the
ring, she was better prepared for combat than ever.
Her return came at the Survivor Series on November 18 in a six-pack
challenge for the vacant WWE Women's Championship. At this event,
Stratus faced off with Lita, Mighty Molly, Jacqueline, Ivory, and
former Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) mainstay, Jazz. Stratus
pinned Ivory after unveiling her new Stratusfaction finisher, a
modified bulldog headlock which saw Stratus apply the headlock,
climb the ropes, and in mid-air, catapult herself backwards to the
canvas with her opponent's head still gripped in her arms. Stratus
had won her first WWE Women's Championship.
Although she continually showed significant improvements in the
ring, regularly defending her championship, Stratus eventually lost
the title to Jazz by submission on a February 2002 edition of RAW.
She spent the remainder of the year feuding with the likes of Lita,
Molly Holly and Victoria and winning the title on two more occasions.
By the end of 2002, Stratus was a 3-time Women's Champion.
Stratus won the Hardcore Championship from Crash Holly, on May
6, before losing it the same night to Steven Richards. Stratus also
became WWE's most popular Diva, gracing the cover of WWE Divas 2002
swimsuit magazine (an alternate cover with Lita), and also winning
the Woman of the Year achievement award as voted by the readers
of Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine. In the brand extension between
RAW and SmackDown!, Stratus was drafted to RAW.
As 2003 progressed in the WWE, so did the skills the divas possessed
in the ring. The term diva lent more on aggressiveness and assertiveness
rather than beauty and looks. This was all too apparent as Stratus
went up against matches more based on ring skill than beauty alone.
After a bitter rivalry with Victoria, which pitted Stratus in several
hardcore matches, Stratus was met with a bitter nemesis from the
past, Jazz. The look on Stratus's face as returning nemesis Jazz
brutally destroyed an already battered Trish will always be an image
fans will remember. Now Stratus was up against two women who had
a bitter hate for the Toronto beauty that would culminate at Wrestlemania
XIX in a triple threat match for the WWE Women's Championship.
At WrestleMania XIX on March 30, Stratus won her fourth WWE Women's
Championship in a triple threat match against two of her greatest
rivals, the psychotic Victoria and Jazz. Despite losing her title
back to Jazz the following month, Stratus stayed in the hunt for
another championship. Stratus was engaged in a heated feud with
newcomer Gail Kim, who gained the Women's Championship on her first
televised WWE match, by winning a battle royal. A miscommunication
between Stratus and Kim during a tag team match on RAW (in which
Stratus misfired a Chick kick and accidentally nailed her partner)
left Kim embittered.
Two weeks later, the now former Champion Kim, who lost the title
to Molly Holly the previous week, appeared to be saving Stratus
from a two-on-one assault by Molly and Victoria. Kim helped Stratus
to her feet before viciously clotheslining her to the mat. Soon,
Molly approached Kim with the idea of forever ending Stratus's wrestling
career, and for a time, it seemed as though it would happen. Thanks
to an assist from the returning Lita, however, it would be Stratus
who gained the last laugh.
October 2003 would mark the beginning of what would be Stratus's
most emotional WWE saga; the triangle between Stratus, Chris Jericho,
and Christian. One night on RAW, as Stratus was being attacked by
Victoria and Steven Richards, Jericho inexplicably rushed the ring
and warded off the attackers. Even Stratus seemed dumbfounded initially.
Soon, however, Stratus started to slowly warm up to Jericho, seeing
a side of him that many fans and fellow competitors did not see
very often. One which apparently showed warmth, caring, and compassion.
Stratus and Jericho appeared smitten with each other. At the same
time, Jericho's friend and tag team partner Christian was courting
Stratus's close friend Lita. To many fans, neither courtship looked
to be on the up and up. As it turned out, they were anything but.
On the December 1 RAW, Jericho and Christian were overheard in the
locker room mocking Stratus' and Lita's affections, and revealed
a bet the two of them had with one another (for one Canadian dollar)
to see which man could sleep with their chosen Diva first. Stratus,
who was to present Jericho with a handmade Canadian hockey jersey
as a gift, heard every word and every laugh from outside the dressing
room, and it brought her to tears.
The following week, Stratus and Lita confronted and assaulted Jericho
and Christian in front of a nationwide viewing audience on RAW,
leading to a "battle of the sexes" tag team match held
at Armageddon on December 14. While Christian seemed to take pride
in beating down his female opponents, Jericho seemed to want no
part of it. Apparently, Jericho was starting to develop true feelings
for Stratus, and was having a difficult time going through with
the match before him. Stratus seemed to take a lot more pleasure
in beating down Jericho than Jericho had in facing her in a match.
Soon, it became obvious that Jericho was feeling an enormous amount
of guilt for initiating the Canadian dollar bet.
At first, Stratus was unwilling to show Jericho any forgiveness,
but appeared to accept his apologies enough to at least accept him
as a friend. Meanwhile, Christian appeared to be harboring jealousy,
accusing Stratus of driving a wedge into his partnership with Jericho
and labeling her "Yoko Ono." But soon, Christian also
appeared to have something of a change of heart, albeit a very condescending
one. To the face of Jericho, he was very accepting of his feelings
for Stratus...but to Stratus's face, Christian seemed to be courting
It looked like everything became crystal clear on the February 23
RAW, when Christian was booked to face Stratus in a one-on-one match
by. In the dressing room prior to the contest, Christian (feigning
friendship with Stratus) promised her he would allow her to pin
him. In the ring, however, Christian instead plowed Stratus down
with a clothesline, and locked her in Jericho's submission hold,
the Walls of Jericho. Stratus was taken out of action for several
weeks with injuries, and Christian gloated over his actions. A match
was soon signed for WrestleMania XX on March 14, in Madison Square
Garden, pitting Chris Jericho against his former best friend, Christian.
It appeared this long and intense storyline would reach its conclusion
at WrestleMania. Unbeknown to the fans in attendance, it was only
just getting warmed up. Stratus surged toward the ring late in the
match, appearing to be firmly in Jericho's corner. Christian, apparently
disgusted by Stratus' presence, pulled her violently into the ring
and attempted to attack her. Jericho made the save, but when he
leaned down to assist his fallen friend, Stratus thrust forth an
elbow, apparently believing that it was Christian. Her elbow jabbed
Jericho's temple, and Christian scored a roll up pin for the three
count. After the match, Stratus appeared to be all apologies, but
as she and Jericho argued in the ring, Christian came running back
down the aisle, to seemingly get his hands on Stratus in a violent
and hateful manner once again. As Jericho tried to hold her back,
the fans witnessed the turn of Stratus.
Stratus suddenly reared back and throttled Jericho with two vicious
slaps to the face, which Christian followed with the Un-Prettier.
Christian and Stratus walked away holding hands, mocking their former
friend who sat in the ring looking on with an expression of disbelief.
Before they departed, Christian grabbed Stratus's hair, pulled her
to his lips, and passionately kissed his new girlfriend.
The following night on RAW, after the two squashed Spike Dudley
in an unprovoked attack, Stratus revealed on how she had never forgiven
Jericho for the Canadian dollar bet, how her feelings of sadness
and hurt ate away at her for months as she plotted her ultimate
revenge. She also revealed to the fans how much she "likes
it rough." She ended the promo by proclaiming to Jericho and
to the world, "You can't get no...Stratusfaction."
The Stratus/Christian union continued for several more months,
and even saw the addition of a "problem solver" to their
mix, the hulking Tyson Tomko. As the Jericho/Christian feud reached
its conclusion, Stratus refocused herself on the Women's Championship.
At Bad Blood on June 13, Victoria defended the Women's Championship
in a Fatal Four Way Elimination Match. Lita appeared to have victory
at hand following a DDT to Gail Kim, but Stratus moved in for the
kill, rolling up Lita from behind for the win and the title. This
win was historic for Stratus, as she became the first-ever five
time WWE Women's Champion. Stratus held the title for the next six
months, fending off all challenges and even tying the record for
the fastest match in wrestling history, pinning Nidia in just three
seconds on the July 5 edition of RAW. One notable feud in her 2004
title run was with Christy Hemme when Jonathan Coachman was about
to announce the winner of the first Diva Search Contest, and Trish
Stratus's music hit and she came out wearing a short blue dress.
She warned the eventual Diva Search winner that she would be hazing
them as part of an "initiation party" next week on RAW.
Finally, after taunting Lita for months over her marriage to Kane
and the loss of her baby, Trish defended her title against Lita
at Survivor Series on November 14. Lita went berserk on her opponent,
smashing Trish with a steel chair and driving her into the ring
steps, breaking her nose. Trish did win the match by disqualification,
but several weeks later, Chris Jericho, in his capacity as General
Manager for the evening, booked Trish for another title defence
against Lita on the December 6 edition of RAW. Lita kept her composure
and nailed Trish with a Twist of Fate and a moonsault to win the
On January 9 at New Year's Revolution in Puerto Rico, Lita defended
her title against Stratus. Lita tore her ACL when she connected
with a Lou Thesz press off the ring apron, onto the arena floor.
Stratus quickly took advantage of the situation, nailing Lita with
a Chick Kick to the head to win her record sixth Women's Championship.
Stratus successfully defended her title at WrestleMania 21 on April
3 against 2004 RAW Diva Search winner Christy Hemme.
In May 2005, Stratus was removed from competition, due to a herniated
disc. Storyline wise, she was attacked by Viscera after he failed
to take out Lita's "husband" Kane. She berated him after
the match and he gave her a bear hug and followed up with a big
On September 12, Stratus returned to RAW and turned face once again
by joining forces with Ashley Massaro against Torrie Wilson, Candice
Michelle and Victoria. On September 18 at Unforgiven 2005, Stratus
and Ashley defeated Victoria and Wilson in a tag team match and
again during WWE Homecoming's Bra and Panties Match. A week later,
Trish Stratus' "number one fan" Mickie James made her
debut, saving Stratus and Ashley from an attack from Victoria.
Stratus successfully defended the Women's Title in a "Fulfill
Your Fantasy" Diva battle royal at Taboo Tuesday 2005.
Trish Stratus met Melina in the ring for the first time on November
14 in a mixed brand diva battle royal. Melina eliminated Stratus
to win the bout. On the November 21 episode of RAW, Stratus was
abducted by two masked men and carried to an undisclosed part of
the arena. When they had Stratus bound and tied to a chair, they
revealed themselves to be Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro of MNM,
acting on the instructions of Melina. Melina then challenged Stratus
to a match for the Women's Championship the following Sunday at
the 2005 Survivor Series, which Stratus agreed to. Melina then kicked
Stratus in the head, knocking her and the chair over. At the 2005
Survivor Series on November 27, Trish did battle with what many
argue was her toughest opponent since Jazz when she squared off
against Smackdown's top women's wrestler Melina. Trish was able
to tough out Melina's vicious offense by using a high-risk modified
Stratusfaction and a timely interference from Mickie James to retain
the title and keep it on RAW.
On the December 26 episode of RAW, Mickie James initiated an "intimate"
kiss with Stratus under a mistletoe. The surprised Stratus, in disbelief,
ran from the situation, stressing out James. Mickie James was in
another compromising situation with the Womens Champion the
next week. Frustrated that Trish wasnt returning her advances,
James found Stratus in the shower. She took Stratus' towel and wouldn't
give it back until Trish heard her out. Mickie finally gave Trish
her towel back, but not before complimenting her on her "nice
Stratus retained her title by defeating Mickie James with the Chick
Kick at New Year's Revolution on January 8 and aftward James made
more advances toward Stratus.
The next night on RAW, Trish put her Women's Title on the line
against the 2005 RAW Diva Search Winner Ashley. When Ashley went
for her first near fall of the match, Mickie entered the ring and
attacked Ashley, giving her the win by DQ. Backstage, Trish tried
to apologize to Ashley for what happened, but Ashley did not want
to hear it, calling Mickie a "psycho".
The next week on RAW, Mickie held a celebration of her idol, Trish.
Balloons and confetti filled the arena and the Spirit Squad performed
a special cheer for Stratus. As Trish was having trouble setting
the record straight with Mickie, Ashley hit the ring; she told Mickie
that Trish did not love her, and that she thought James was a psycho.
Mickie was extremely upset by this and pretended to leave the ring
before running back in and spearing Ashley. As a catfight broke
out, Trish pulled Ashley off Mickie, who used the opportunity to
nail Ashley with a Mick Kick. James left the ring happy while Trish
was left tending to a fallen Ashley. Shortly afterwards, Trish introduced
James to her "date", Jack. Not taking this well, Mickie
concocted a plan to remove Jack from Trish's life by dressing up
as Stratus and then coming onto Jack. When Jack was unresponsive,
she falsely accused him of trying force himself onto her. Jack was
promptly arrested (removing him from WWE TV) and Trish began to
console Mickie. Trish appeared to be unaware of Mickie's plot to
remove Jack from her life.
On the February 20 edition of RAW, Candice Michelle won a Battle
Royal to become the #1 contender to the Women's Championship. The
following week, Stratus successfully defended her championship belt,
pinning Candice with a roll up after Candice's failed attempt to
use the ropes for leverage. After the match, Mickie began bowing
down for Trish, which led into an uncomfortable hug. Trish pushed
Mickie off in embarrassment and frustration, leaving Mickie in the
middle of the ring as she retreated to the back.
On the March 6 edition of RAW, Trish finally confronted Mickie
about her psychotic behavior. Trish told her that she was too much,
earlier Mickie hosted Kiss Cam and started licking the cover of
the Divas magazine with Trish on it. She then told Mickie that it
would be best if they maintained their space.
On the March 13 edition of RAW, Stratus successfully defended the
WWE Women's Championship against Victoria. During the match Candice
Michelle interfered, but Torrie Wilson evened the score by giving
the "Nose-Job" to Victoria while Trish scored the victory.
Later that night, Trish was looking for Torrie but couldn't find
her anywhere. She then asked Maria if she knew where Torrie was.
Trish went to the womens locker room only to find Torrie hurt
with Candices Playboy issue on her chest, presumably hurt
by Candice and Victoria.
At Saturday Night's Main Event, on March 18, Trish and Mickie James
defeated Candice and Victoria. Afterwards, Mickie offered to shake
Trish's hand; but when she went for a hug and kiss on the cheek,
Trish pushed her away. In response, Mickie gave Trish a Chick Kick
and Stratusfaction, completing her heel turn. On the March 20 edition
of RAW, Mickie James was in the ring with a box and said she had
a present for Trish. Finding Ashley tied up in the box, Trish attempted
to save her, but was knocked unconscious by Mickie with a devastating
Tornado DDT. Mickie then proceeded to plant a bloody kiss on the
lips of the fallen Women's Champion, as a gagged Ashley looked on
in horror. The following week, Trish was clearly disturbed by video
clip that depicted a shrine Mickie James had made for Trish.
At WrestleMania 22, James defeated Stratus for the Women's Championship
by the Mick Kick. During this match, it was notable that Stratus had
heat from the defiant Chicago crowd. Many believe this is because
the fans were somewhat irritated by the length of her championship
reign, considering the fact that the belt was not defended for nearing
5 months, due to Stratus' herniated disc.
The next night, Trish Stratus and Torrie Wilson were set to face
Candice Michelle and Mickie James. When James came down to the ring,
she had her hair dyed blonde, wearing Stratus's wrestling outfit
and came down to the ring with a theme music that began like Stratus's
own. In response to this, Trish began a 3 week stint in which wore
short skirts to the ring as Mickie would, and acted bipolar as Mickie
would. On the April 10 Edition of RAW, following Mickie's victory
over Maria Kanellis, Trish came out dressed in James's old attire,
complete with brunette hair, and a Mickie style outfit-short loose
orange skirt, colorful top, lots of accessories. After publicly
declaring herself as her biggest fan and raising her hand, Trish
gave her a kiss, causing a confused Mickie to quickly leave the
ring. On April 17, 2006 Trish Stratus came out and had a present
for Mickie James in the ring. James came out and it was Trish's
ex-boyfriend, Jack, tied up. Trish said if Mickie is the real Trish
then she would do something about it, and if she was just Mickie
James she wouldn't do anything about it. James understands, but
yelled at Trish to leave her boyfriend alone thinking she was the
real Trish. The two brawled and James ended up getting a spinebuster.
The next week on Raw, Mickie came to the ring dressed normally,
but Trish continued dressing as Mickie. Another brawl occurred with
Stratus getting the upper hand once again. At Backlash, Stratus
& James faced off for the Women's title. Stratus won by disqualification
when James wouldn't release a choke hold on Stratus.
According to WWE doctors at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY, Trish
Stratus dislocated her right shoulder during her match with Women's
Champion Mickie James. Doctors managed to put the shoulder back
in place. It was reported on May 1, 2006, on WWE.com that she will
require six weeks of rehabilitation. Despite that diagnosis, Trish
appeared on several Raw's afterward. For instance, she helped Maria
pin Mickie James in a Cheerleader Tag Team Match one night after
the injury (May 1). The next week Trish tried to fight off Mickie
James but ended up being choked with her sling until a mystery woman
came to her rescue (May 8), who Trish eventually introduced as OVW's
Beth Phoenix (May 15). One week later (May 22), Trish came out and
advised Mickie that Beth is Raw's newest Diva, who promptly attacked
Mickie and chased her into the crowd. Trish was ringside to manage
Beth in her first official Raw match (May 29) as she tagged with
Torrie Wilson to defeat Candice Michelle & Victoria, who had
Mickie James as their manager.
Rekindling an old feud
Trish made her return to the ring on the June 26, 2006 edition of
RAW in a Women's Championship match against Mickie James. Stratus
put up a great fight, but eventually lost to James. After the match
Melina accompanied by Johnny Nitro came to the ring and taunted
Stratus. Nitro grabbed Stratus and set her up for Melina when Carlito
ran-in and made the save. Later backstage Stratus thanked Carlito
and proceeded to whisper something in his ear, responding to Carlito's
signature T-Shirt shirt reads "Do you spit or swallow?"
Trish whispered in Carlito's ear something to which Carlito replied
"That's Cool" with a large smile.

Work outside of wrestling
Stratus has twice appeared on Mad TV and has performed in various
comedy shows in Canada, including Royal Canadian Air Farce. She
has performed on stage at Second City and hosted the 2006 Canada's
Walk of Fame gala, where alongside her hosting duties, she performed
a singing and dancing act in tributes to the new inductees. She
also has endorsement deals with Tag Bodyspray and Stacker 2.
Stratus recorded a song called "I Just Want You," as
part of the WWE-produced compilation album WWE Originals. She is
a fan of Lil' Kim, who performed her current theme song.
Stratus has repeatedly declined to pose nude for Playboy. In a
March 15, 2005 interview with Byte This! (an online talk show),
she was quoted as saying, "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. I want people to go 'Oh right, Trish Stratus. She was the
greatest Women's Champion ever.'"
Stratus's mother Alice is a teacher of Polish descent, and her father
John is a real estate agent of Greek descent. She has two younger
sisters: Christie and Melissa.
Stratus's trademarked catchphrase is "Stratusfaction Guaranteed,"
with "True Stratusfaction" being the feeling of constantly
being challenged and subsequently meeting those challenges. Her
motto is "Preparedness meets opportunity."
