WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita (Amy Dumas) spoke with Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald to promote their appearance at this Saturday’s Women in Wrestling Fan Expo at the Coastline Convention Center, 501 Nutt St. in Wilmington, N.C. Down below are the highlights.
Stratus on Lita appearing on the upcoming season of Tough Enough: “I think it’s awesome for her,” Stratus said. “It’s a good fit for her. I think she is going to be a valuable asset to the show in lending her expertise. My tips for her are, I don’t think she needs any tips. She has her s— together. She knows what she is doing out there. She will do fine. I do have to remind her that when you come from retirement and forget about the grind, you forget how exhausting the grind is. They will be filming week-after-week. I was in Los Angeles to tape the show for almost two-and-half months and lived there.
Stratus on the E! Network’s reality show, “Total Divas”: “You tell someone who doesn’t watch wrestling what your day-to-day life was in wrestling they are like, what,” Stratus said. “I think to showcase it is pretty cool. ‘Total Divas’ used to be like check out these girl wrestlers and then also see their lives. Now it’s see their lives about girls who happen to be wrestlers. I think it has slowly turned into a reality show, not much of a wrestling show. It’s sort of the backdrop, which is fine. I still love the show. I think it would have been fun to do.
“Though a couple of months there was a lot of cat fights on the show where I was like, ‘Jeez, this would never work for our generation. We were really close. It would be boring TV to see.’ TV has an interesting way of making things happen. So I think it would be an interesting show for us back in the day for sure.”
