Trish Stratus opens up on why she decided to wrestle at WWE SummerSlam

Charlotte Flair and Trish Stratus have been doing their best to get fans invested in seeing them compete inside of the squared circle.

In an interview with The Toronto Sun, the WWE Hall of Famer talked about why she decided to return to in-ring action to wrestle the former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion.

The two stars are slated to meet in a top match at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event.

“You can never create this scenario again,” she added. “It’s serendipitous. If it’s the final moment, I would be proud of the Stratusfaction delivered.”

“As you get older, you decide this is it,” she said. “I don’t need to keep coming back. I’ve had my ride. But this scenario was so special. To face a superstar like Charlotte Flair at this point of my life. In Toronto. At the second biggest pay-per-view of the year (WrestleMania is first). What could be more right? To face the greatest of her generation — and it’s been argued that I was the greatest of my generation — it’s a pretty unique matchup. Everything is aligning for this and with my age — how much longer can I do this or want to do this? This is the perfect time to do it.”

The SummerSlam pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, August 11, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena
