In an interview with The Toronto Sun, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus talked about her return to in-ring action while promoting the SummerSlam pay-per-view event.
In this interview, the pro wrestling legend explained why she felt like she had to come back for one last match with Charlotte Flair at this show.
“As you get older, you decide this is it. I don’t need to keep coming back. I’ve had my ride. But this scenario was so special. To face a superstar like Charlotte Flair at this point of my life.”
Stratus brought up the event being in Toronto and SummerSlam being the second biggest pay-per-view of the year that the situation couldn’t be more right.
She brought up how she’s facing the greatest of Flair’s generation and it could be argued that she was the greatest of her generation. It creates a pretty unique matchup.
Stratus added that everything is aligning for this and with her age, she questions how much longer can she do this or want to do this. Thus, she thinks this is the perfect time to do it.
Although she has wrestled a few matches since 2006, she’s been mostly retired from wrestling. During this time, she has wrestled a few matches.
