Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of The Score Television Network had a chance to sit down and interview former 6 time WWE Womens Champion Trish Stratus. In the interview, Stratus does not rule out the possibility of her attending WrestleMania but says "it's not on my calendar at the moment", Also, she talks about her upcoming movie project with Lita and defends Natalya's "flatulence" and Eve's "Hoeski" angles.
Part 1 of the interview is online. Highlights:
Her new movie release "Bounty Hunters" on DVD, how did she get involved in the project:
"The director/writer Patrick McBrearty, He sat down and wrote a script and said I need a strong female lead for this, so he pictured Trish Stratus in his mind. It landed on my desk, I read the script, and just Trish Stratus just jumped out of the pages to me. Small crew, Canadian casting crew, I was excited to support that. Also the fact that I got to do some fighting, got to learn some new fighting art. That was a great opportunity to do that"
Having so much on her schedule, the yoga studio, WWE is always on the back of her mind. Where does movies and television fit in, how much does she want to occupy on her schedule.
Another movie project on the table with former WWE Diva Amy Dumas (Lita), a Lucha Libre Film, her thoughts.
Will she be at Wrestlemania 28 in Miami, Florida?
"At this point it's not in my calendar, but things change who knows. There's a lot of very talented women right now that can do an amazing match at Wrestlemania. I hope to see Beth Phoenix doing the pin up strong movements, been amazing to watch. But lets just see what happens, you never know. I just hope there is a Divas match, even if I'm not in it."
Does she ever have the urge to step in the ring with the Divas that are with WWE now, would she like to ever one day step in the ring with them.
What are her thoughts of the WWE divas division now:
"(The Divas division) is just lacking the development we had. Everyone is asking me about Natalya, and Eve, and how controversial the angles are and can you believe that in a negative way, but I look at it in a positive thing. Natalya is doing this flatulence gimmick, and there's the hoeski gimmick for Eve. To me, this is just character development. Every time there out there, the audience has a chance to connect with them, and get more invested in them as characters and performers"
