Trish Stratus inducted into WWE HOF + announces pregnancy!

Trish Stratus is one of the newest WWE Hall of Famers, but this fall, the first-ever Diva of the Decade will add yet another honor to her list of accolades: motherhood.

“I just wanted to let you all know that in September, I’ll be delivering a little Stratusfaction,” an ecstatic Trish announced to the WWE Universe, which responded with overwhelming approval for the mother-to-be.

“It was awesome,” Trish told WWE.com moments after her bombshell announcement. “As a public personality, you wonder what’s the right time to tell everybody. Of course, when I got the news I would be inducted this year, I definitely found out I was pregnant, and so I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ll be four months, I should tell them!’ ”

It was a conversation with a longtime friend who made up Trish’s mind to break the news on her big night.

“Me and Stephanie actually talked about it and thought it would be a great chance to announce it,” Trish said. “It’s my family out there. They’ve been part of my life for so long, the WWE Universe, and to actually share the news with them was wonderful. And the reaction was nice. They like the Stratus baby!”

So, is an in-ring future in the cards for said Stratus baby?

“Whatever he or she would like to do, I will support just as I was supported by my family,” Trish said of a possible heir to her Hall of Fame legacy.

Congratulations, Trish and husband Ron!


Stephanie McMahon takes the stage to induct Trish Stratus, and pays homage to all the interaction Trish had with her family. Steph says they are some of her favorite moments on TV.

Trish comes out and says Stephanie is a great friend, mother and businesswoman. Trish says the last time she was at MSG, she was making her final bow on Raw and now she’s back with bling. Trish does a little comedy bit, rolling out a huge long list of people to thank. The crowd is really loving her as she thanks the fans first. Trish makes fun of the fact she was so bad when she started in WWE and says the crowd literally watched her grow up. She smiles cheekily and says she hopes we were all Stratusfied. Trish thanks former WWE Canada president and her trainer Ron Hutchinson. Trish mentions that Edge, Christian, the “beautiful” Beth Phoenix and the “great” Gail Kim trained at Sully’s Gym. She then thanks Jim Ross. Trish pulls out the pen gave her to sign her first WWE contract out of her cleavage and tells the camera to get a close-up. She jokes that she’ll cover up the F in WWF so the “pandas don’t get pissed off”. The crowd goes nuts. She then thanks Fit Finlay for everything he did for the Divas and making it the golden era. Trish says Molly Holly, Ivory, Jazz, Victoria, Mickie James, Jacqueline and her bestie Lita made the golden era. She tells Lita how much she means to her and says I love you. Lita looks like she is tearing up. She thanks the other girls for building something special and says working with the McMahons pushed her to be better because it was so much pressure. Trish says she brought 25 Greeks from Toronto with her and thanks her family for always supporting her. She thanks her mom and says one of the reasons she retired is because her mom was diagnosed with cancer and she needed to be there. Her mom is now cancer-free. Trish thanks her husband Ron for always being there and the crowd boos him, but she threatens the crowd for booing her man! Trish says she’s so in love with her husband and she’s so glad to share her WWE career with her high school sweetheart.
