WWE Hall of Fame 2013: 10 Most Memorable Moments of Trish Stratus' Career
Trish Stratus is bringing sexy back—at least to the WWE's Hall of Fame. Only the sixth woman to be inducted into the WWE's Hall of Fame, Trish Stratus brings her feminine charm to the WWE's boy's club.
Stratus' Hall of Fame induction is just another of the Diva's multiple accomplishments—including being named Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Woman of the Decade (2000-2009).
In honor of Trish Stratus latest accomplishment, here's a list celebrating the most memorable moments of her career.
Trish Stratus Makes Her WWE Debut
Initially joining the WWE roster as a manager, Trish Stratus made her pro wrestling debut on March 19, 2000 during an episode of Sunday Night Heat.
The episode featured Stratus scouting WWE Superstars Test and Prince Albert (currently wrestling as Tensai) during their matches.
Stratus would eventually manage the team of Test and Prince Albert—the two would be collectively known as T&A.
Trish's "Involvement" with Mr. McMahon
Despite her initial splash into the world of sports entertainment with T&A, Stratus' big break would come as a result of a storyline featuring her and WWE chairman Mr. McMahon.
In what probably would constitute as sexual harassment in a "real world" scenario, Stratus would become "involved" with the WWE's chairman in some odd ways.
Stratus would go on to shed her heel image after slapping Vince McMahon during a match between the chairman and his son Shane McMahon at WrestleMania X-Seven—effectively becoming a babyface in the company.
Stratus Wins Her First WWE Women's Championship
On November 18, 2001 Stratus would win her first WWE Women's Championship.
Stratus won the title at Survivor Series during a Six-Challenge in which she defeated WWE Divas Lita, Jacqueline, Mighty Molly, Jazz and Ivory for the vacant Women's Championship.
Stratus would go on to win seven Women's Championships—an all-time record.
Involvement with Chris Jericho and Christian
Once again becoming romantically involved with WWE Superstar, Stratus found herself in a relationship with Chris Jericho who at the time was engaged in a feud with fellow Canadian superstar Christian.
The love triangle would once again bring Stratus into the limelight—her moment would come when she betrayed Y2J at WrestleMania XX, leaving the "Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla" for "Captain Charisma."
Mickie James Becomes Trish's Newest Friend.
After declaring herself the biggest fan of the veteran Diva, newcomer Mickie James quickly found a way to get closer to Trish Stratus—maybe too close.
James would quickly become obsessed with Stratus until their mentorship became a rivalry over Stratus' title.
Stratus would eventually lose the strap to James at WrestleMania 22.
On September 17, 2006 Trish Stratus fought her last match for the WWE before her retirement.
Stratus would challenge her longtime rival Lita for the Women's Title at the Unforgiven pay-per-view in her hometown of Toronto, Canada.
Stratus won the match by placing Lita in the Sharpshooter—an homage to fellow Canadian idol Bret Hart.
Stratus Joins the Cast of Tough Enough
Despite being gone for more than four years after her retirement from pro wrestling, Stratus made an impressive return to WWE television as on of the trainers on the WWE's reality television series WWE Tough Enough.
Stratus would join Bill DeMott and Booker T as part of the show's training staff and would allow a new generation of WWE fans to get acquainted with the "Quintessential WWE Diva."
Return to the Ring
After joining the cast of WWE Tough Enough Stratus would continue making sporadic appearances on Monday Night Raw.
The appearance would eventually lead to a match at WrestleMania XXVII, in which Stratus' return to the ring would be alongside John Morrison and Jersey Shore cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi against the team of Dolph Ziggler and Lay-Cool (Michelle McCool and Layla).
Raw 1000 Stratus-DX Reunion
Back for one more night, Trish Stratus was last seen on WWE television during the monumental 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw.
Though short, her appearance on the show would relive a famous backstage moment with fellow WWE Superstar Triple H.
The moment would turn the table from the original skit in which Triple H was caught by his wife, Stephanie McMahon, in a compromising position while trying to teach Stratus a wrestling move—this time around it would be Stratus who would go on to teach her fellow star a new move.
Addition to the WWE's Hall of Fame
One of Stratus' most memorable moments in her career has yet to be lived. Her induction to the WWE's Hall of Fame will without a doubt be a great moment.
Fans are speculating that the Diva will be inducted into the Hall of Fame by long time rival/friend Lita.
Whatever the case may be, fans of the "Stratusphere" may catch the "Quintessential WWE Diva" receive her Hall of Fame honors live on April 6, 2013 at New York's Madison Square Garden.
