Source: Diva-Dirt.comIt's been a busy couple of months for the legendary 7-time Women's Champ, Trish Stratus. She's back in the WWE fold with the USA Network revival of Tough Enough, she's going to WrestleMania this Sunday, has a movie premiering in one week and is on the cover of Oxygen magazine! With so much going on in the Stratusphere, we decided to give the Diva Dirt Legacy Award winner a call and discuss!
In this exclusive interview, a sequel to our first interview (Diva-Dirt.com) last September, Trish dishes on her return to WWE, working with Snooki and this Sunday's WrestleMania 27 extravaganza in Atlanta. In this one hour+ interview, we also speak in depth about the upcoming season of Tough Enough, which premieres next week, as Trish gives us her opinion on each of the five female contestants. We also touch upon her stunning Oxygen magazine cover, the world premiere of her debut movie 'Bail Enforcers', and the WWE release of Dave 'Fit' Finlay who had a big hand in Trish's training and success in the ring as a WWE Diva.
On getting the call to do Tough Enough: "I would say it was about the beginning of February I got this call, 'Hey, we got this new show Tough Enough which you might have heard about. We want you to be the female trainer on the show' and of course I was just absolutely honored to be asked. [...] At first they told me, 'We can't really tell you the details on who's going to be involved yet'. I was like, 'Hmm, well, last time I accepted a show and I didn't know who was involved, I ended up working with Erik Estrada and Latoya Jackson, so I'd like to know please'. [Laughs] They told me 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin would be the host and I said, 'I'm in'. And then Bill DeMott and Booker T [became involved] as well, so I was like 'Oh absolutely'."
One of the things that made her want to come back & do the storyline going into WrestleMania: "The opportunity came up to work with Lay-Cool which I'm so excited about. I mean they've done such great work. People love to hate them. As a fan, I've sat back and I've watched -- especially Layla -- [I've] watched them grow into these great workers. They've really come along, especially when you think about where both of their backgrounds are. They've put in the work to develop their characters. [...] I was a big fan of their work so to come back and work with them was a neat little opportunity."
What it's like working with Snooki: "She's so sweet. The first time I met her -- the first Raw -- she was just really excited to be there and really open minded and I love that when people come from other worlds and are just like, 'Okay, what do you want me to do?'. Sometimes you get that resistance like, 'Hmm, I don't know if I could do that...' and she was just totally into it."
