• WWE Officials Not Happy Regarding Trish Stratus’ Return Announcement
As we noted before, WWE announced this past Saturday night that WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus will make her in-ring return at the all-women’s WWE Evolution PPV and she will face Alexa Bliss.
Below is the announcement:
“As if WWE Evolution, the groundbreaking all-women’s pay-per-view, wasn’t already historic enough, Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss will face seven-time Women’s Champion Trish Stratus in what is sure to be a match for the ages.
The Goddess, who is set to defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam, will battle the WWE Hall of Famer for the first time at the pay-per-view event set for Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 ET/4 PT. Not only will this be Bliss and Stratus’ first match against each other, but it will also mark Stratus’ first match since competing in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match earlier this year.
WWE Evolution will stream live on WWE Network, featuring women’s championship matches from Monday Night Raw, SmackDown LIVE, NXT and NXT UK, as well as the final of the second annual Mae Young Classic 2018.”
According to Brad Shepard, some WWE officials aren’t pleased with how the company handled the announcement for the return of one of their biggest female stars of all time and made it look like it was just another announcement (while it was a big one).
Trish’s return announcement didn’t get the buzz they were hoping to receive and this made some backstage officials unhappy.
