2013 WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus was interviewed by the Toronto Sun. She discussed her wrestling career and being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this Saturday. Here are some highlights:

Being a Randy Savage fan growing up: “”Macho Man (Randy Savage) was the man to me. I mean don’t get me wrong, I definitely was a Hulkamaniac because I think we all were. But Macho Man, I just thought he was great, just so charismatic and I really loved his ring work. I loved how athletic he was. I was actually … just watching a string of his promos the other day, and it’s just, ‘Wow, he’s just untouchable.’”

Her WWE retirement match: “First of all, of course, to have that moment in my home town… my contract was actually ending in August and Vince had come to me and said, ‘You know, if you stick around for one more month, we have a really cool opportunity. We’re going to be in Toronto and we could have your retirement match there.’”

Her WWE Hall of Fame induction: “Actually, my reaction was … already?” she said, with a laugh. “I guess I’ve remained very active with the company, and I still feel like I was wrestling yesterday, but you know it has been seven years since I retired.

“Hearing the class that I’m going in with, I just was like ‘Wow.’ It’s a huge honour,” she added. “I’m super excited about the evening and clearly, it’s shaping up to be an epic evening. I mean, with Donald Trump added to the card, I think that’s kind of a neat thing. And it being at Madison Square Garden. And the recent announcement of Arnold (Schwarzenegger) inducting Bruno (Sammartino) is, gosh, it’s amazing.”

Lita not being her Hall of Fame inductor: “I have someone and you’ll just have to wait… That’s obviously been swirling around [Lita inducting her]. It was a difficult choice. There’s a number of people that have really, really impacted my career. In my speech, you’ll know the choice I made is very clear. But you’ll know soon enough.”

Trish also discussed signing with WWE, winning her retirement match with the Sharpshooter, working with Fit Finlay and more.
