Former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that she could physically return to the ring for WWE, but only if it was unique enough and worth the challenge.
“Could I physically go back and do what I did before? At this point, yes, I can do that. But I’d only go back if it was worth it and if it was a challenge for me. Something that’s different and unique, like playing a heel again, which would be super cool. I’ve gone back as a babyface, so it would have to be something challenging and something that would elevate either the division or a talent. Not just me for my own sh–s and giggles to raise my brand. It would be good if there was a moment to elevate a character. I’d love to work with Ronda Rousey, but I don’t know if she’d be up for that.”
Stratus retired from the ring in 2006, making a brief comeback for her first match in over two years on the December 22, 2008 episode of Raw, when she and John Cena defeated Santino Marella and her former on-screen protégé Beth Phoenix.
She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.
UFC welterweight fighter Matt Brown recently revealed to Fan Garage his thoughts on CM Punk fighting MMA in UFC.
“I didn’t criticize him for having his surgery if it was something necessary to do. I criticized him for the fact that he’s not a fighter. He doesn’t deserve to fight in the UFC with no fights. I don’t believe he deserves to fight in the UFC based off the name he made in pro-wrestling and I think he’ll figure it out when he fights in the UFC, he’ll figure it out the hard way. Or he can listen to me and that’ll be the easy way to learn.”
It remains unknown as to when Punk will have his debut fight has he had to undergo back surgery, but rumor suggests that his first fight could be against Mickey Gall.
