The third inductee to the WWE Hall of Fame was announced on the most recent edition of “Monday Night Raw.”
Former Diva Trish Stratus will join Mick Foley and Bob Backlund in this year’s class. The wrestlers will be inducted on Apr.6 at Madison Square garden, one day before WrestleMania 29.
Stratus, whose real name is Patricia Stratigias, made her WWE debut in 2000 as a manager, after starting her career as a model. She began her WWE career by managing the tag team of Test and Prince Albert, as well as Val Venis. She eventually went on to wrestle, becoming, arguably, the greatest Diva in the history of the company.
In her career, Stratus won the Women’s Championship seven times. She even won the Hardcore Championship in 2002, becoming the only woman to do so.
Stratus retired in 2006 after her final run as champion. However, she has continued to make sporadic appearances with the WWE. She returned in 2011 to compete at WrestleMania 27. She teamed up with John Morrison and Snooki from the “Jersey Shore” to defeat the team of Dolph Ziggler, Layla and Michelle McCool.
Outside of the ring, the 37-year-old has found success in other ventures. In 2008, she hosted a show called “Stratusphere” that aired on the Travel channel. She also appeared in the 2011 film “Bounty Hunters.
