Trish Stratus retired from WWE in 2006, when she was just 30 years old. The final match of her full-time career took place at the Unforgiven 2006 PPV, where she defeated Lita to win her 7th Women’s Championship.

During an interview with Inside The Ropes, Trish explained her decision to end her full-time career so early:

“Yeah, at the time I was definitely very confident in my decision. I felt very fulfilled in my career at that point, and had a good look at it. It wasn’t like I was yanked out of it, and was like, ‘Oh, wait. I didn’t have that moment.’

I had the chance, luckily, to decide, ‘Am I going to sign or not sign?’. Listen, my mom was diagnosed with cancer, and that was one of the deciding factors that I was like, the universe is telling me it’s time to go.

I mean, I was already playing with the idea of like re-signing or not, but my mom getting cancer, knowing that if I was on the road in that schedule, I could not be with her for her treatment and that journey. And for me, yeah, I looked at the roster, looked at the women we have that can work.

I’ve worked luckily, been blessed to have worked these great storylines and long storylines and really juicy storylines with Jazz and Victoria and Molly. Have these things that people remember to this day. This rivalry that people remember.

So I was like, ‘I feel good’. Like, I feel like I’m good. I was 30 years old, and I was ready. I was ready to move on.”

After her 2006 retirement, Trish became a part-timer / special attraction wrestler, who has competed in 22 matches since then.

Her last match to date took place at the Payback 2023 premium live event, where she lost to Becky Lynch in a Steel Cage Match.

Trish’s most recent WWE appearance took place at Money In The Bank 2024 in her hometown of Toronto, where she was the Host of the PLE and introduced John Cena.
