During an interview on WWE’s The Bump, legendary WWF Diva Trish Stratus talked about the 2001 storyline that featured her being $exually involved with WWF owner Mr. McMahon, that culminated in a confrontation with Vince’s real-life wife Linda McMahon at WrestleMania X-Seven.
During this interview, Trish also talked about the segment where Vince made her bark like a dog and forced her to strip. Trish referred to it as “THAT” event.
Here’s what Trish said about that WrestleMania angle:
“As we laid it out, everything meant something, every little motion, from Linda standing up to my slap to Stephanie. It was super fun to watch it back.
As a character, that was a turning point for me. That was my whole, ‘I’m not going to take this anymore. I’m going to stand up, I’m going to believe in myself. I don’t need you, I don’t need a man’.
As everyone knows, it was a long journey of questionable moments before that between Vince and I, as a character, I knew this was the end point and it was culminating in this point.
Everything we did, including THAT event, was worth it.
It was completely worth it for the character and the evolution of the character. And it meant that much more for us to get there to that point.
It was an awesome moment for me as a character.”
