Trish Stratus Reveals What It Would Take For Her To Return To WWE, Who She Thinks Is The Future Of The Women's Division

Trish Stratus hasn't competed in a WWE ring in nearly a decade, but could a return be in the cards for the seven-time women's champion? In a recent interview, Stratus told Sports Illustrated that she hasn't completely ruled out a return to professional wrestling but not before saying that the "Divas Revolution" started long before the recent rebranding of WWE's women's division.

"The 'Revolution' began with us. It was a change in the way women were perceived in the business."
"We got to the building that day, and there was a board with all of the matches written on it. Amy and I were riding together, and we thought the board wasn't complete or that they hadn't written the main event yet. Then one of the agents–Fit Finlay–said to us, 'Are you ready for this?' Then upper management started coming over and saying congrats, and I was like, 'Holy sh--, this is a big moment.'"
"I didn't care what I was wearing, it was all about the match and telling the right story. There was a moment in my career where I wasn't sexy any more–I was going out to wrestle. There was a shift in my career where it was all about the wrestling."

Since Trish Stratus' retirement in 2006, 19 women have combined for 41 title reigns as either the WWE Women's Champion or WWE Divas Champion, but Stratus feels that the future of women's wrestling is someone that's never held the title, someone else that recently main-evented a WWE show, Sasha Banks, who closed NXT Takeover: Respect last October in a 30-minute Iron Woman Match with then-NXT Women's Champion, Bayley.

"Sasha, to me, is a star. There are a lot of comparisons, but I don't think we are that similar, actually, at all. But she's the star of the division, and she's the one. She really knows her character, she owns her character, and she's so solid in the ring."
"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."
