Trish looking forward to return
In the summer of 2001, Trish Stratus was out of action as she recovered from an ankle injury.
Stratus had three months to watch RAW from the comfort of her living room and contemplate her eventual return.
"During that time away, I decided to make the commitment to be a full-time wrestler once I returned," Stratus told WWE.com. "And when I came back I won the Women's Championship for the first time, so that was a career-changing decision."
Now, four years later, Stratus is nearly fully recovered from a herniated disc in her lower back. Stratus, who last appeared on WWE television at Backlash in May, has been keeping up with RAW from home, and is looking forward to another successful comeback.
"I've been sitting at home and watching how the RAW landscape has changed," Stratus said. "It's very interesting. But I look forward to coming back and doing what I do best, and that's delivering Stratisfaction.
"This is what I do for a living, and I've missed it very much," Stratus added. "I'm very excited to come back and defend the Women's Championship."
Stratus appeared at some recent live events near her home in Toronto as part of Chris Jericho's Highlight Reel, which was subsequently cancelled as part of Jericho's recent dismissal from RAW.
Stratus said her recovery was a bit more difficult than she first expected. In fact, it wasn't until Stratus added yoga to her rehabilitation program that she saw marked improvement.
"I'm feeling great on a day-to-day basis now," Stratus said. "Originally, it was supposed to take eight weeks, but after eight weeks I was still having problems running or sitting too long bothered me. But I started to incorporate yoga with my physical therapy and that helped me along."
