ESPN.com has an article up spotlighting former WWE Diva Trish Stratus. To celebrate Title IX, ESPN discusses successful women who have give great measures to the sporting world. Below are some quotes from Stratus.
On the mental and physical strain of a wrestling schedule:
"The wrestling schedule is really crazy," Stratus said. "In the seven years that I wrestled, the only time I had off was for injuries — a broken thumb, broken ankle, broken nose, herniated disk. I used to feel like it was a crazy pace with no time to think, but I went back after my back injury and, though it was the same crazy schedule, I was looking at it with different eyes.
On why she left the WWE:
"People thought I retired to start a family," Stratus said, "but I was just ready to leave the business. Athletically, I achieved everything I wanted to, and I'd worked with everyone I wanted to. I was really fulfilled. It felt right."
On her new career with Yoga:
"What I love about what I do," Stratus said, "is that it's actually what I do. It's not a job. It's the life I live. It's all fueled by passion, and everything in my life somehow turns into part of the business."
