Trish Stratus Confirms Nixed Plans With Beth Phoenix

Trish Stratus doesn’t wrestle very often anymore, which makes her coming out of semi-retirement such a big deal. Lita and Becky Lynch are currently WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, so that places them in a different category on the roster as active champions.

Obviously, this is not Trish Stratus’ first run in WWE. In 2005, she had a feud with Mickie James that showcased the WWE women’s division’s top talent. That being said, the plan did not go down without some changes.

Trish Status and Mickie James’ feud saw the introduction Beth Phoenix. While speaking to SHAK Wrestling, Stratus reflected on the plans 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.”

“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.”

We will have to see how long Trish Stratus stays around WWE this time around. Her return might only be for a short-term WrestleMania program, but you never know what can happen in WWE.
