WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus spoke to Kayla Braxton backstage at SmackDown Live yesterday (Tues. July 30, 2019). Stratus discussed her upcoming SummerSlam match with Charlotte Flair and returning to competition in front of her hometown crowd in Toronto.
Here are the highlights:
Her upcoming SummerSlam match with Charlotte Flair: “You know, I was literally at the cottage with my children, running on the beach with the sand between our toes and then I’m facing Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam in two weeks,” Trish said. “I was saying to Jerry out there – it’s in my blood, it’s in my heart and soul, and I know that’s why I can pull this off.”
Returning to competition in front of her hometown crowd in Toronto: “You know what, to have the Toronto love, The Six behind me, it’s incredible. And it feels a little full circle. I mean, I retired in Toronto. This match feels so important to me. Charlotte said some stuff, I think she’s forgetting a lot of the work we did back in the day was for what the girls are doing now. We sit back and when we watch it, God do we wish we could be a part of it so much. So, it means a lot to just… sort of like, remind her who The Queen of Queens is.”
Her preparation for the bout: “I’m doing nothing, I’m showing up. I’m ready right now. Stratusfaction guaranteed, out,” Trish said.
