WWE Diva Trish Stratus on when she found out she would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, her favorite match, her yoga brand
Mar 30, 2013 - 11:38 AM


Monday Night Mayhem with Trish Stratus
Hosts: The Big Mosh and Todd Vincent
Recap by Aaron Carnevale
Show available at WrestleView.com


Where she was when she found out that news that she was going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and her reaction to hearing the news about being part of the WWE's "Class of 2013": "It was the end of 2012. I was home. I got a call and was told the news. It was a little bit of a shock, because I feel like I just wrestled yesterday. I'm just super honored. It's exciting, because when I heard about the class and everyone else being inducted, I was just so thrilled and honored to be in the same class. I never thought I would get in, and just to know that I'm accepted, I'm going to be a fan just getting my pictures with everyone."

Her favorite match of her career and why she classifies it as "the pinnacle" of her era in women's wrestling: "My favorite will probably have to me my WrestleMania match with Mickie (James) at WrestleMania 22 in Chicago. The fact that it was my last WrestleMania match. I think why our era was so different and memorable than maybe today is the storylines and character development. What that match did was it embodied all the elements that era embodied: strong story and deep character development, but also solid work. I think that whole combination is what was brought out in that match, and you could see the crowd invested in a story that was six months long. I look at that match as the pinnacle of that era."

The growth of her Stratusphere Yoga Studio and her Stratusphere Yoga brand: "When I retired in 2006, one of my first business venture was to open up a yoga studio. I opened up place north of Toronto called Stratusphere. That's where I started the foundation for the brand, and spreading the word about yoga, and living a balanced lifestyle. The transition to develop my own style happened when I was about to film my movie 'Bounty Hunters.' I realized I was playing this kick-ass bounty hunter, and I was a 'yoga chick.' So I ended up creating this routine, which was integrating strength training moments into my yoga flow, and my body totally changed. So I started showing people the style I was doing, and it really caught on. That's how I developed Stratusphere Yoga, and then I started producing the DVD's."

Much more is contained in Trish's first-ever interview with Monday Night Mayhem, including her candid thoughts on her fellow WWE Hall of Fame inductees, why she agrees with many others in saying the "Class of 2013" is the best of all-time, what prompted her decision to retire at the age of 30, why she credits Fit Finlay for her career going in the direction it went, what being a WWE Diva/Women's Champion/role model to young girls meant to her personally and professionally, her influence on women's wrestling, what matches she is looking forward to at WrestleMania XXIX, plus so much more, including exclusive comments from former WWE Women's Champion "The Glamazon" Beth Phoenix and Trish's original trainer Ron Hutchison on what it was like working with Trish and their reactions to her being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
