Trish Stratus Names Sasha Banks As Her Dream Opponent, Thought WWE Evolution Would Be Annual

If Trish Stratus were to return to the ring, she has an opponent in mind.

Trish wrestled her retirement match at SummerSlam 2019, losing to Charlotte Flair. However, if the right opponent and story were to pop up, she open to the possibility of returning.

Speaking on Women's Wrestling Talk, Trish named Sasha Banks as her dream opponent should she return to the ring.

"Sasha and I have this thing that fans want to see and deep down, I want to see. I love her so much and respect her as a person, as an athlete, as a performer, and as a friend. I love what she does in the ring. Sometimes you get in the ring and you have this thing. Lita and I had it, Mickie [James] and I had it, Victoria and I had it. It's something that when you get in there, you just know something is going to happen. When we had a simple face-off at Royal Rumble and we're still buzzing about it years later and talking about a dream match. I always said, ever since I retired, if there was an opportunity for me to go back, it would be for something challenging, stimulating, the fans want it and it does something for both parties involved. She fits in the bill in that regard. Not that I'm coming back or anything, but Trish Stratus vs. Sasha Banks is a nice dream," she said.

Stratus vs. Banks could have been a possibility at WWE Evolution 2, but WWE never followed up on the first-ever all-women's pay-per-view from October 2018.

When discussing Evolution 2, and the lack of an event, Trish said, "October came and went, the follow up never happened. I thought it was an annual thing. I was maybe starting to train a little for it. The call might come, you never know. It didn't come. There was no event."

It is unknown if Trish will ever return to the ring.

Elsewhere during the interview, Trish revealed that she's discussed with Matt Bloom the possibility of training at NXT. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
