Trish Stratus is still amazingly gorgeous. After hanging up her boots and retiring from professional wrestling, this Canadian-born beauty has transitioned her talents to yoga. She is a WWE Hall of Famer, a pioneer in women’s wrestling and a role model to millions around the globe. She brought athleticism and grace to the wrestling ring in the early to mid-2000s. Trish’s beauty transcends the stratosphere.

Stratus grew up in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. She is a former fitness model, appearing as the cover girl for the May 1998 issue of MuscleMag International, which earned her a two-year contract with the publication. After leaving this magazine, she spent the next six months as a cover girl for other publications. During this time, she transitioned her talents to the radio, becoming the third host of Live Audio Wrestling on Toronto Sports Radio. It wouldn’t be long before she became the cover girl of professional wrestling in the WWE.

Trish admits to being a lifelong wrestling fan. In November 1999, her childhood dream came true when she signed with the then World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). On the March 19, 2000 episode of WWE Sunday Night Heat, Stratus made her official debut. Watch the video and see the beautiful young Trish walk out to the bright lights of the WWE for the first time:

Stratus started off as a manager for the makeshift tandem of Test and Albert, collectively known as T&A (obvious sexual innuendo). In the beginning, she was very popular eye candy for the fans, who cheered more for Trish than her teammates. But very shortly into her WWE career, her in-ring talents became more and more apparent. She brought the women’s division to the main event when leaders of WWE’s current Women’s (formerly Divas) Revolution were still in grade school. She is a record setting seven-time WWE Women’s Champion. She competed in stellar contests with the likes of Lita, Molly Holly, Victoria, Mickie James and Jazz. Trish is also a former WWE Hardcore Champion (not sexual). Click on the video below to watch Trish get hardcore in her match against Victoria at Survivor Series 2002:

She has appeared in so many of WWE’s video games, with 20 appearances in total, starting with WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role. She retired from the WWE back in 2006 in a memorable match at Unforgiven against Lita, in which Trish won her seventh Women’s Championship. She left on top as champion and with an amazing career that is very hard to match. She did come back for one more match though at WrestleMania XXVII and teamed up with John Morrison and Snooki (of all people). They took on the tandem of Dolph Ziggler & LayCool (Michelle McCool & Layla). And she is no stranger to WrestleMania¬†matches. Here is one of her classic matches against Mickie James, as the two go hold-for-hold on the grandest stage of them all WrestleMania 22:

Can’t get enough of Trish? Neither can her fans. The WWE Universe would welcome her back with open arms if she ever decides to make a comeback to the ring. She’s bold and beautiful; a professional wrestling icon that raised the bar. She is a living legend, who knew how to kick ass and look amazing doing it. She still looks amazing with an ageless beauty that can’t be diminished. Her art has been captured for all to see on the internet. I’ve captured as much beauty as I can. Look below to see her art of beauty.
