It was announced on last night’s SmackDown Live that Trish Stratus has been added to the lineup for Raw’s 25th-anniversary episode.
At Unforgiven on September 17, 2006, in her hometown of Toronto, Stratus defeated Lita with fellow Canadian Bret Hart’s signature submission maneuver, the Sharpshooter in her retirement match. Her victory earned her a seventh Women’s Championship, the most in WWE history, and she retired as the champion.
Stratus was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 and inducted Lita into the Hall of Fame in 2014.
Since leaving the ring she has had two children – a son named Maximus Stratus who was born on September 30, 2013, and a daughter named Madison-Patricia who was born on January 14th, 2017.
Stratus joins Nikki & Brie Bella, Jacqueline Moore, Torrie Wilson, Terri Runnels, Maria Kanellis, Michelle McCool, and Kelly Kelly as female names returning at RAW’s 25th Anniversary Show.
