WWE is set to hold their first-ever all-female pay-per-view card on October 28th entitled WWE Evolution. On the card, it was initially announced that Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss would face WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus in a one-on-one match. However, on last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw, those plans changed. It was announced that instead, two matches would be combining to form a Tag Team match.
Given Mickie James vs. Lita was already on deck for Evolution, it was announced Stratus and Lita would team up against Bliss and James in a Tag Team match at WWE Evolution instead. Recently, Trish was interviewed by Natalya for her latest Calgary Sun column. Trish was asked about getting to step into the ring with a young and impressive talent such as Bliss. Here’s what she had to say:
“Proud. Honoured. Nervous. (But don’t tell Alexa Bliss that!). When we were competing in the so called ‘Golden Era’, we never could have imagined we’d be where we are today – an all-women’s pay-per-view. It’s amazing, as back then we felt accomplished just getting a match on a pay-per-view event, and here we are with an entire event devoted to us!”
This would be Stratus’ first featured singles match since she retired in 2006.
