Trish Stratus recently spoke to the Toronto Sun about her legendary career and her upcoming Hall of Fame induction. Growing up, Trish said she was always a huge wrestling fan, but planned to become a doctor, because there were not many women in prominent roles back in the 80's & 90's:

“There wasn’t really a role for the women to look at and go, ‘I want to do that when I grow up’. There was a time when Wendi Richter and Cindy Lauper were doing their thing,” she said, “And I remember thinking, ‘Gosh, that’s so cool,’ but I guess it was such a once-in-a-while thing that you didn’t really look at it as a feasible career option.”

“I’d even say that when I started wrestling, there was no real defined role for the women,” she said. “We knew there were some women in wrestling, but there was no real, ‘This is what women can do in wrestling.’ So I decided to set out and change that once I got in there.”

Stratus would of course go on to have a legendary career that will culminate in her WWE Hall of Fame induction this Saturday night in New York City. Trish has teased that close friend Lita will be inducting her - but says there's a chance somebody else will:

"I have someone and you'll just have to wait... That's obviously been swirling around [Lita inducting her]. It was a difficult choice. There's a number of people that have really, really impacted my career. In my speech, you'll know the choice I made is very clear. But you'll know soon enough."
