Nov 29, 2010 /TrishStratus.com/ – Diva-Dirt.com (Diva Dirt) is extremely pleased to announce today the launch of the ‘Diva Dirt Legacy Award’ with multi-time WWE Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus, set to be honored as the first recipient.

The annual ‘Legacy Award’ will honor the career achievements of select talented and exceptional female professional wrestlers.

“This award is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the years of entertainment that these women have provided fans across the world,” said Diva Dirt’s Editor-in-Chief, Melanie Rob. “Women’s wrestling may be a niche, but these women work just as hard as male wrestlers and the sacrifices they make for our enjoyment, such as injuries, are real. This is our salute to you.”

The first recipient of the ‘Legacy Award’ is a woman who is synonymous with women’s wrestling. A seven-time WWE Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus broke barriers for women in the wrestling industry during her tenure with WWE from 2000 through to 2006. Not relying solely on her obvious beauty, Stratus matched her looks with a strong in-ring repertoire, charming wit and personality, as well as a shrewd business sense. Her countless accomplishments include a record-breaking seven reigns as Women’s Champion, being voted WWE’s ‘Babe of the Year’ by the fans three years in a row, and receiving the highly acclaimed ‘Diva of the Decade’ award. Throughout her career, Stratus participated in numerous high-profile matches and storylines, including a Women’s Championship match as the main-event on Raw, as well as multiple WrestleMania matches.

“There is no one that I can think of more suited to be our first ‘Legacy Award’ winner than Trish. She is a benchmark for women in this industry and her popularity to this day remains unrivaled. Trish is one of the women responsible for enticing a new generation of fans to enjoy female wrestling, even inspiring some of the female wrestlers we see on television today. We are honored to present this award to Trish,” added Rob.

On the award, Trish says, ”I feel very blessed to be recognized by Diva Dirt for my achievements in the WWE. Growing up as a wrestling fan, it was truly a dream come true to end up doing something that I was passionate about for a living. It is a great honour to be recognized by a website that proudly supports women’s wrestling, and highlights the importance of female contributions in a male-dominated industry.”

The ‘Legacy Award’ is being presented in conjunction with the Female Fight League (FFL), founded in 2010 by Jason Deadrich, the FFL is an organization that unites all-female promotions, as well as fans, to bring respect and exposure to professional female wrestling.

Jason says, “It is with great honor that the Female Fight League works alongside Diva Dirt to present this award to Trish Stratus. There is no other female professional wrestler that deserves this award more. Trish is a wonderful role model and someone who has clearly proven herself in the wrestling business.”
