In a blockbuster that will send a shockwave throughout sports-entertainment, WWE.com has learned that Trish Stratus will be retiring following Unforgiven next month.
However, it wasn't Trish herself that provided this information to WWE.com. Earlier today, Women's Champion Lita called the WWE.com offices to announce Trish's retirement. Apparently, Lita overheard a personal telephone conversation this weekend between Trish and her parents about her decision to hang up the boots.
"Trish was saying that the road has been taking its toll on her and it was time to take some time for herself," Lita told WWE.com, "but the hardest part was that she couldn't decide how to tell her fans. Well, being the good friend that I am, I figured I'd break the news through WWE.com to alleviate her worries and save her the trouble of figuring out how to let down all her fans like that."
