Trish Stratus Reveals Who Almost Joined Her Storyline With Mickie James


During a recent appearance on the “SHAK Wrestling” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus commented on her feud with Mickie James in the mid-2000s, including the plans for Beth Phoenix to join the storyline. While Phoenix wound up getting injured, the original plan was for the Glamazon to play an “enforcer” for the group.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On the original plan for Phoenix: “Yeah, she was going to be the enforcer of the group. It’s funny because they wanted her to be like a strong, silent type, which is cool and powerful. When we looked at how she ended up coming back, it was much better.”

On how Stratus thinks it all ended for the best: “I think she didn’t need to be in our thing and it just worked. It would’ve been a fun trio for sure, and especially when the storyline turned, it would’ve been interesting to see how it played out between us. But, yeah, I think everything played out the way it should’ve when I look back at everything.”
