"This week, the much anticipated RAW Superstar of the Week is an easy choice. It’s one that even a good ol’ boy from Oklahoma can’t mess up. It is with great pride that this week’s award unanimously goes to… Trish Stratus! We’ll have more on the lovely lass from Toronto after these words.
And then the lovely angel from Toronto appeared at my doorstep. OK, it was in my WWE office more than seven years ago when I, as the head of talent relations, hired Trish Stratus to a WWE contract. Wow, did she make me look good or what? I have never regretted the day I signed her to the dotted line, ever, not even once. Trish has been a Godsend to all the WWE Divas, and has led the way for other Divas to do great things and make big bucks in the WWE. I think Trish will be in the WWE Hall of Fame someday, but if she doesn’t make it, she will always be in mine. (That will get you some BBQ sauce and a pair of tickets to an University of Oklahoma home football game.) Trish will be missed by everyone, but hopefully she will return from time to time and say hello, or just let us stare at her. Trish deserves a break from the virtual nonstop seven-year schedule that has taken her all around the world. Seven years… And a seventh Women’s Championship possibly at her last match, which happens to be in her home town… What a scenario. It couldn’t have been written any better if were a Toby Keith country song.
Good luck Trish, this Sunday and in life. And thanks for that smile, the work ethic and for being a joy to work with. I will miss your hugs and your desire to be the absolute best. Godspeed."
