Scott Fishman recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus for Channel Guide Mag to promote her new movie, Gridlocked. Below are a couple of highlights:

WWE bringing back the brand extension:

"I think it's a great move. There is just so much talent right now. They need the two platforms to allow them to develop the talent and help shape these characters. With so many talented Superstars on the roster, you can't have them waiting in the wings forever. Because of NXT and the opportunity they have been given to grow at the Performance Center, there are many ready to go right now. I know when I was there and we had the brand split, there was excitement within the roster. There is so much more potential for opportunity and with the two brands, interesting things can happen, like the Draft became an interesting element for the fans."

SmackDown going live:

"Moving to live is going to be good, too. I know when I was on Raw, I don't know if it was an internal thing, but that was seen as the A-show. There is nothing like a live performance for the fans and for the performers. I think that combination will be a positive thing."

Trish also talked about Lita working with NXT talent, Natalya turning heel, her role in Gridlocked and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
