The latest and greatest in women's wrestling

Trish Stratus talks current division, Lita, more

The Miami Herald has published an interview they conducted with Trish Stratus during WrestleMania XXX weekend.

Trish commented on today’s Divas and her generation:

“We represented things different. We were kind of there to work. That was our mantra. We wanted you to look at us for our work, not necessarily what we are wearing. I think the diva’s division, and this might be cliché because I don’t know how many times I’ve said this, but all they need is a bit more character development. We don’t get to know them, so when they get to the ring unfortunately, nobody cares. There is nothing for us to get behind or motivated or excited about character-wise and storyline-wise. I think there needs to be a little bit more focus on characters and with more TV time. I need to know these characters.”

Inducting Amy “Lita” Dumas:

“To induct Amy was fantastic.She so deserves it. It was like one of those nights where we were like, ‘You know what? We are going to have fun tonight.’ There was no stress. There was no pressure of what was going to happen out there. We’re friends and went out there and had the vibe. It was really natural and fun.”

on Emma:

“I haven’t met Emma [at the point when this interview occurred], If you look at my Twitter, I know we’ve met before actually. She put a picture up when we were on tour in Australia or something. I have seen her. I think its cool there is this picture with me and her. I have not met her since then. I think that would be great to meet her.

    She’s absolutely right. Current divas desesperatly need a character.
