Trish Status says she fangirled when Cardi B tweeted about her.
After Trish Stratus returned on the February 27 episode of WWE Raw and helped Becky Lynch win the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, popular rapper Cardi B tweeted about seeing the two WWE Hall of Famers in the same ring.
Speaking on My Mom's Basement with Robbie Fox, Stratus was asked to share her thoughts on Cardi B's tweets. She first responded by joking that they had a lot in common, as people have been talking about their "back ends" for decades. She then stated that she thought it was cool, and she wondered whether she may have influenced Cardi B. Stratus also emphasized the importance of women supporting each other and lifting each other up.
“It’s obviously because of our derrière, our back ends. We both have asses that have been talked about for decades now [laughs]. No, there’s much more. I don’t know, I think it’s cool. She was looking at it like a strong female badass. That’s who Cardi B is. She grew up on that. Did I influence Cardi B? Maybe, I don’t know. But I think it’s cool. To me, it’s a successful woman in another industry uplifting another woman and giving that awareness. It’s all about that. It’s about supporting and uplifting other women because the stronger as a group, with us all supporting each other and recognizing there’s a space for everyone is super important and what really makes us continue to grow," Stratus said.
Fox then brought up the way Cardi B often tweets about stars from the past, including The Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero. Stratus noted that there's plenty of nostalgia for that era. She then admitted that she fangirled when she saw that Cardi B tweeted about her. The WWE Hall of Famer also described how a friend helped her see that she may have had an important impact on Cardi B when she was growing up.
“That’s the thing, right. It’s nostalgic. It’s funny because I actually said that to a friend. I was like, ‘Oh my….’ I mean, did I fangirl about her tweet? Yes, I did. I thought that was cool. I showed a friend, and she goes, ‘Yeah, of course. Remember what you represent. That’s the nostalgic thing, like she grew up watching what you did, a woman making it in a male-dominated world, and she dod that too. How cool. Did you influence it? I don’t know.’ But that’s what she saw, and she had that representation, she had that visibility. So yeah, it’s really neat to be in that position. Did I fangirl? Yeah, a little bit," Stratus said.
