"I don't know if he did... he might have said that," she responds.
Stratus continues, "He's entitled to his opinion. It was one of these things where we had an epic moment, it was WrestleMania, our biggest stage of them all, and I had been retired. So I'm out of the scene and suddenly I get to come back and be in the grandest stage of all, I get to be at WrestleMania. Well he thought "that's not cool" because I guess his girlfriend is a women wrestler and so he thought maybe another girl deserved that spot. But, I had gone back to WWE television to do Tough Enough, which was a reality show they did to find the next WWE Superstar. They asked me to be back, we promoted that show, etc. He was a little resistant, like there were some moments where I was like, "Oh, he's not meshing with me."
Stratus then details the 'famous cold shoulder incident' where she was snubbed by Morrison during their post-match celebration at WrestleMania when she attempted to embrace him.
"We have a famous cold shoulder incident. Well, we're on live television. We had a match, we won the match, we were victorious as a team and then I went to go like, we do that typical thing, you raise the hand, you point [and he went in another direction, leaving Trish hanging]," she explains.
"I just said to him, "Hey, what you've done now, is because your career is made up of moments, so now you've taken a moment from the fans, really." Because they don't care about backstage politics, they don't care if you think your girlfriend should be in that spot or whatever it was. So he just denied the fans and himself and that's that."
Stroumboulopoulos then asks Stratus if Morrison would have snubbed her had she not been a woman.
"Probably wouldn't have done that to me if I wasn't a woman, yeah," she responds.
