Natalya wrote in her WWE Universe blog that she hopes to see Trish in 2 weeks when WWE comes to Toronto:
"I get so excited to go back to Canada, as it is where my roots are. I am also curious to see if Trish Stratus makes an appearance at the upcoming show, as she does live in the area.
It was only a few weeks ago that Trish had called the Glamazon and myself out on talking "smack" about her. Interesting. I usually try to keep the locker room gossip and bad mouthing to a minimum. (I like to leave useless drama to the other diva's in the locker room like Maria, Michelle and the Bella's) Anything that is worth fighting about, we can take in the ring... And anything I need to say to Trish, I can say to her face.
I actually am coming out in the open to say that from the very beginning of my career; from when I first stepped foot in the dungeon, I always had a dream of wrestling Trish Stratus. I kept that vision with me for years. What a perfect opponent Trish would have made to test me to my limits. As a fighter, I look for this in my opponents all the time. We have similar parallels, too. Both of us being fierce, aggressive, driven and Canadian. Even my family, has a deep respect for Trish Stratus.
It dissapointed me that she retired when I signed with WWE...and actually, I resented her for haulting what could have been one of WWE's most monumental women's matches.
I do believe that Trish, being a 7 time Women's Champion, could have made history in the ring with me. I would have gladly brought the dungeon to her and made her show her guts! I think she would have driven me to test my own personal limits. Everything I learned about survival, from the Dungeon to Japan, would mean something when we finally faced off.
Trish chose to never let that moment see the light of day. Kind of selfish of Stratus in my opionion...but I can see why she may have had reservations about fighting me...because she had to preserve her legacy. It's totally understandable, yet it doesn't make it right.
No hard feelings, though. I am not going to embrace her with open arms if I see her in Toronto. I am sure the Glamazon would agree!"
