As noted on Tuesday night, via Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus has been in talks about wrestling a match at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. The speculation was that Trish vs. Charlotte Flair might take place.
In an update, John Pollock reports that multiple sources have confirmed Stratus vs. Flair as the current plan for SummerSlam.
There’s no word yet on when Stratus will return to WWE TV to promote the match. This will be her first match since October 2018, when she teamed with WWE Hall of Famer Lita to defeat Mickie James and Alicia Fox at Evolution, then worked a ten-woman tag team match on RAW the next night.
SummerSlam takes place on August 11 from Trish’s hometown of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at the Scotiabank Arena. This is the same arena where Trish wrestled her retirement match against Lita at the 2006 Unforgiven pay-per-view.
