• Trish Stratus Has Been In Talks To Return To WWE Under A New Role
WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus recently appeared on the Women’s Wrestling Talk podcast, where she discussed the possibility of becoming a producer for WWE.
Below is what she said:
“I would love to. I love the idea of it. The reality is it comes with the road, right? And I just can’t do the road because of my family at this point anyway. They’re young now. I have a three-year old and Max just turned 7.
So at this point, I just couldn’t go back on the road like that and leave my family like that but yeah, I’d love to contribute in some way. It was nice to go back those couple times and just work with the girls and see how their minds work and telling the art of storytelling and just working with Fit [Finlay] again, it got me stimulated and him and I were in like this little — we’re like Frit and Frat.
We just have this little connection when we were working together, and we would literally come up with ideas the more we would — and we’d be like, ‘Yeah…’ You just have that with someone. So we had that and so I thought, ‘Man, we could put some good matches together.’ We would be like co-agenting probably. We would be awesome but, yeah I would like to contribute in some way.”
Regarding the possibility of her working as a coach in NXT, she said:
“I’ve talked to Matt Bloom, my former partner [from T & A days during the Attitude Era] about possibly going to NXT. We’ve talked about it on a number of occasions.
It’s just like never the right time has come about to do that but, I’d love to work with young minds and that was the best part about Tough Enough was just to work with these kids and that sort of thing so, yeah, for sure.”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (December 22, 1984) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.

1. The Junkyard Dog vs. Bobby Bass
