Trish Stratus has promised to make The Queen bow down and become the ‘Queen of Queens’ at Summerslam. But at the end of the night, her opponent stood tall who can now claim to send her into retirement. The Hall of Famer received a tremendous ovation from her hometown crowd while entering the biggest event of the summer. But it was Charlotte Flair who had control of the match for the better part using the ring-rust of the former seven-time women’s champion.
Charlotte Flair punished Trish Stratus throughout the beginning until the latter one countered a suplex attempt with a Hurricurana. She locked in Flair’s own Figure Four followed by a series of Chick Kick and Stratusfaction. But ultimately, the nine-time women’s champion prevailed bridging into the Figure-Eight Leglock that forced Trish to tap out. The Toronto audience gave the legend a proper send-off once the match was over that we will remember forever.

The legendary wrestler Trish Stratus decided to come back to in-ring competition on this year’s occasion of Summerslam. Since it took place in her hometown of Toronto, Canada, she had the perfect opportunity to compete in front of her own audience. Plus, she could not say no when Vince McMahon approached her for a match against none other than Charlotte Flair. Thereby, the storyline progressed in the below way, (courtesy wwe.com)
“Stratus was completely caught off-guard and didn’t immediately retort when nine-time Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair stormed her appearance on “The King’s Court,” nonchalantly downplayed Trish’s role as a loving mother of two and challenged her to a match at The Biggest Event of the Summer. When Charlotte made a crack that Trish should “go home and change diapers,” Stratus only briefly hesitated before breaking out her Attitude Era game face.”
This set up the huge matchup at Summerslam which might also have been the last for Trish Stratus. She has seven WWE Women’s Title reigns before retiring in 2006. But she continued competing even after that, sporadically. Since 2011, she competed in three different matches. (The 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble and a couple of Tag Team matches at WWE Evolution and the very next night on Monday Night Raw). But last night might have marked the end of Stratusfaction era.
