Patricia Anne Stratigeas, better known as her the ring name Trish Straus is a former professional wrestler, fitness model and fitness coach actress, and TV show host from Canada. It is said that she is the most popular female sports performer ever and an innovator for women’s sports generally. Stratigeas was a model who began as fitness models appearing on the cover of various magazines. Being a wrestler from a young age, she enthusiastically signed up when World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) was in the market. In signing a multi-year agreement with the organization and launching in 2000, she made her debut in the midst of the Attitude Era. Through her time in the ring, she showed her skills in the ring as well as with microphones, performing face and heel with the same elegance and charisma. She took home her the WWF/E Women’s Championship seven times, Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine’s Woman of the Year recognition four times, and also her Woman of the Decade accolade. Since her retirement in the year 2006 she has made only sporadic appearances at WWE events, and also runs the Yoga Studio in the suburban areas of Toronto, Canada. The year 2013 saw Stratus received her induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Stratigeas signed the contract to WWF during November of 1999. She was first seen as a heel on the 19th March show Sunday Night Heat using the name of the ring Trish Stratus. In the beginning during her time in the business, she was employed as the storyline director, initially in the case of Test and Albert who were who were part of the tag group T & A, and later for Val Venis. As her storyline was her debut she was working together with WWF Chairperson Vince McMahon and the rest of the McMahon family in the early part of 2001. This ultimately resulted in her WrestleMania Seven appearance in which she helped Shane McMahon in the match with his father, indicating that she was turning her face.
Although she was a participant in competitions prior to her first face-turn, she began doing it with more focus, revitalizing her character. The summer of 2001 she sustained an ankle injury and had to rest for three months to recuperate and heal. After her return after her return, she was certain of her decision to turn professional wrestler. For her debut WWF Women’s Championship win, she was able to win a six-pack match at The 2000 Survivor Series.
In 2003-2005 she as well as Lita (Amy Dumas) were part of one of the most famous written rivalries that have ever occurred in professional wrestling. The title changed between them, and so did the role of heel and face. There were also major fights between Stephanie McMahon, Jazz, Victoria, Gail Kim, Molly Holly, and Mickie James.
Stratus announced in mid-2006 that she was going to retire following the 2007 Unforgiven pay-per-view show. The 11th of September, she wrestled her final wrestling match at Raw in the ring against James. One week later on September 17, at ‘Unforgiven’ Stratus took on Lita in front of her hometown of Toronto and defeated her using the Sharpshooter, a submission move of her fellow Canadian wrestling champion Bret “The Hitman” Hart who was her best friend and rival once more.
In her first appearance since retirement she joined forces with Lita to fight Jillian Hall on 10 December 2007, during Raw’s 15th Anniversary Special. She also joined forces alongside John Cena in December 2008 for her first match in two years , against Santino Marella as well as Beth Phoenix. Trish Stratus was one trainer for the fifth season of WWE Tough Enough. In August of 2016 she made an appearance on the WWE Network special WWE 24: Women’s Evolution where she discussed her experience working in WWE along with the story of women’s professional wrestling.
She has voiced her character in more than 20 WWE gaming videos. Her first appearance in a game was in “WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role’ in November 2000. Stratus made her debut film debut in the film ‘Bail Enforcers’ from 2011 in which she played the female main character Jules who is a bounty hunter. The year 2015 saw her co-starred alongside Dominic Purcell and Danny Glover in the action movie “Gridlocked.”.
In a long career of well-written storylines and compelling fights, Stratus’ own personal favorite is her bout with Mickie James during WrestleMania 22. She as well as James established the narrative for the preceding six months, and it culminated in a spectacular performance of skill and talent of two wrestlers at an elite level of game. Trish Stratus would later defeat the match and lose the Women’s Championship to James, passing the torch to James in the traditional professional wrestling manner.
