Diyanet is a Turkish word for office or authority for Islamic, religious affairs. She has two sisters, Christie and Melissa. Diyanet İşleri Türk İslam Birliği. Stratus' mother, Alice is a teacher of Polish descent and her father, John is a real estate agent of Greek descent. Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı. Her motto is, "Preparedness meets opportunity.". Stratus' trademarked catchphrase is "Stratusfaction Guaranteed", with "True Stratusfaction" being the feeling of constantly being challenged and subsequently meeting those challenges.
In a March 15, 2005 interview with Byte This! (an online talk show), she was quoted as saying;. Stratus has repeatedly declined to pose nude for Playboy. Stratus has also recorded a song called "I Just Want You", as part of the WWE-produced compilation album, WWE Originals. Stratus has appeared on Mad TV twice and various comedy shows in Canada including Royal Canadian Air Farce and performing on stage at Second City.
She was then introduced to Trish's date, Jack, which did not set well with James. After the match, Mickie confronted Trish backstage, and again confessed her "love" towards Stratus. This time, the outcome was different, as Ashley was victorious. Just like on that night, Trish was the special guest referee.
The following week on RAW, Mickie faced Ashley in a rematch from the Royal Rumble. James gave Ashley a Mick Kick and left the ring happy while a shocked Trish tended to Ashley. When Trish pulled Ashley off James. Mickie was very upset and started to leave the ring before running back and nailing Ashley with a spear, causing a catfight.
As Trish tried to set the record straight, Ashley hit the ring and told Mickie that Trish thinks she is a psycho. Balloons and confetti filled the arena and the Spirit Squad gave Trish a special cheer. The next night on RAW, James held a celebration of her idol, Trish. Trish reluctantly counted to 3.
Before the match, Mickie told Trish, " I love you." James won with a powerbomb as Ashley mounted over her on the turnbuckle. Trish was the special referee in Ashley's match with James at the Royal Rumble on January 29 in Miami at the American Airlines Arena. Trish confronted Mickie on the outside, leaving Ashley in the hands of Victoria, who pinned her after delivering the Widow's Peak. The following week, when Mickie was apologizing to Ashley for what she did while they were preparing for their match, Mickie slapped Trish's rear, to which she implied was "just for luck." The trio ended up losing to "Vince's Devils" when Mickie attacked Ashley after she was knocked into her.
The night after on RAW, Ashley defeated Trish by DQ in a match for the Women's Title when James interfered and backstage Ashley told Trish that Mickie was a psycho. Mickie proceeded to make Trish uncomfortable by saying that it felt like silk when their skin came into contact. Mickie came in excited, with Trish asking her if she knew that she lost the match. Afterward, she had a brief stare down with Lita (many believe this is a glimpse into the future) before answering questions on WWE Instant Access.
Stratus retained her title by defeating Mickie James with the Chick Kick at New Year's Revolution on January 8, 2006. Mickie finally gave Trish her towel back, but not before complimenting her on her "nice breasts.". She took her towel and wouldn't give it back until Trish heard her out. Frustrated that Trish wasn’t returning her calls, Mickie found Trish in the shower.
Mickie James was in another compromising situation with the Women’s Champion the next week. The suprised Stratus, in disbelief, ran from the situation, stressing out James. On the December 26, 2005 episode of RAW, Mickie James shared an "intimate" kiss with Stratus under a mistletoe. At the 2005 Survivor Series on November 27, Stratus, with the interference of Mickie James, defeated Melina to retain her title.
Melina then kicked Stratus in the head, knocking her and the chair over. Melina then challenged Stratus to a match for the Women's Championship the following Sunday at the 2005 Survivor Series, which Stratus agreed to. When they had Stratus bound and tied to a chair, they revealed themselves to be Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro of MNM, acting on the instructions of Melina. On the November 21 episode of RAW, Stratus was abducted by two masked men and carried to an undisclosed part of the arena.
Melina eliminated Stratus to win the bout. Trish Stratus met Melina in the ring for the first time on November 14 in a mixed brand diva battle royal. Stratus successfully defended the Women's Title in a "Fulfill Your Fantasy" Diva battle royal at Taboo Tuesday 2005. A week later, Trish Stratus' "number one fan" Mickie James made her debut, saving Stratus and Ashley from an attack from Victoria.
At WWE Homecoming, the duo defeated Wilson, Candice, and Victoria in a Bra and Panties Match. On September 18 at Unforgiven 2005, Stratus and Ashley defeated Victoria and Wilson in a tag team match. On September 12, 2005, Stratus returned to RAW and turned face once again by joining forces with Ashley Massaro against Torrie Wilson, Candice Michelle and Victoria. She berated him after the match and he gave her a bear hug and followed up with a big splash.
Storyline wise, she was attacked by Viscera after he failed to take out Lita's "husband" Kane. In May 2005, Stratus was removed from competition, due to a herniated disc. Stratus successfully defended her title at WrestleMania 21 on April 3, 2005 against 2004 RAW Diva Search winner Christy Hemme. Stratus quickly took advantage of the situation, nailing Lita with a Chick Kick to the head to win her record sixth Women's Championship.
Lita tore her ACL when she connected with a Lou Thesz press off the ring apron, onto the arena floor. On January 9, 2005 at New Year's Revolution in Puerto Rico, Lita defended her title against Stratus. She warned the eventual DS winner that she would be hazing them as part of an "initiation party" next week on Raw. The feud began when Jonathon Coachman was about to announce the winner of the first Diva Search Contest, and Trish Stratus's music hit and she came out wearing a short blue dress.
One notable feud in her 2004 title run was with Christy Hemme. Stratus would continue to hold the title for the next six months, fending off all challenges and even tying the record for the fastest match in wrestling history, pinning Nidia in just three seconds on the July 5, 2004 edition of RAW. This win was historic for Stratus, as she became the first-ever five time WWE Women's Champion. Lita appeared to have victory at hand following a DDT to Gail Kim, but Stratus moved in for the kill, rolling up Lita from behind for the win and the title.
At Bad Blood on June 13, 2004, the Women's Championship was defended by Victoria, in a Fatal Four Way Elimination Match. As the Jericho/Christian feud reached its conclusion, Stratus refocused herself on the Women's Championship. The Stratus/Christian union would continue for several more months, and even saw the addition of a "problem solver" to their mix, the hulking Tyson Tomko. She also revealed to the fans how much she "likes it rough." She ended the promo by proclaiming to Jericho and to the world, "You can't get no...Stratusfaction.".
The following night on RAW, after the two squashed Spike Dudley in an unprovoked attack, Stratus revealed on how she had never forgiven Jericho for the Canadian dollar bet, how her feelings of sadness and hurt ate away at her for months as she plotted her ultimate revenge. Before they departed, Christian grabbed Stratus's hair, pulled her to his lips, and passionately kissed his new girlfriend. Christian and Stratus walked away holding hands, mocking their former friend who sat in the ring looking on with an expression of disbelief. Stratus suddenly reared back and throttled Jericho with a vicious haymaker, which Christian followed with the Un-Prettier.
As Jericho tried to hold Stratus back, though, the fans witnessed the turn of Stratus. After the match, Stratus appeared to be all apologies, but as she and Jericho argued in the ring, Christian came running back down the aisle, to seemingly get his hands on Stratus in a violent and hateful manner once again. Her elbow jabbed Jericho's temple, and Christian scored a roll up pin for the three count. Jericho made the save, but when he leaned down to assist his fallen friend, Stratus thrust forth an elbow, apparently believing that it was Christian.
Christian, apparently disgusted by Stratus's presence, pulled her violently into the ring and attempted to attack her. Stratus surged toward the ring late in the match, appearing to be firmly in Jericho's corner. Unbeknown to the fans in attendance, it was only just getting warmed up. It appeared this long and intense storyline would reach its conclusion on this night.
A match was soon signed for WrestleMania XX on March 14, 2004, in Madison Square Garden, pitting Chris Jericho against his former best friend, Christian. Stratus was taken out of action for several weeks with injuries, and Christian gloated over his actions. In the ring, however, Christian instead plowed Stratus down with a clothesline, and locked her in Jericho's submission hold, the Walls of Jericho. In the dressing room prior to the contest, Christian (feigning friendship with Stratus) promised her he would lay down and allow her to pin him.
It looked like everything became crystal clear on the February 23, 2004 RAW, when Christian was booked to face Stratus in a one-on-one match by RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff. To the face of Jericho, he was very accepting of his feelings for Stratus...but to Stratus's face, Christian seemed to be courting her affections. Meanwhile, Christian appeared to be harboring jealousy, accusing Stratus of driving a wedge into his partnership with Jericho and labeling her "Yoko Ono." But soon, Christian also appeared to have something of a change of heart, albeit a very condescending one. At first, Stratus was unwilling to show Jericho any forgiveness, but appeared to accept his apologies enough to at least accept him as a friend.
Soon, it became obvious that Jericho was feeling an enormous amount of guilt for initiating the Canadian dollar bet. In what now can be viewed as a harbinger of things to come, Stratus seemed to take a lot more pleasure in beating down Jericho than Jericho had in facing her in a match. Apparently, Jericho was starting to develop true feelings for Stratus, and was having a difficult time going through with the match before him. While Christian seemed to take pride in beating down his female opponents, Jericho seemed to want no part of it.
The following week, Stratus and Lita confronted and assaulted Jericho and Christian in front of a nationwide viewing audience on RAW, leading to a "battle of the sexes" tag team match held at Armageddon on December 14, 2003. Stratus, who was to present Jericho with a handmade Canadian hockey jersey as a gift, heard every word and every laugh from outside the dressing room, and it brought her to tears. On the December 1, 2003 RAW, Jericho and Christian were overheard in the locker room mocking Stratus' and Lita's affections, and revealed a bet the two of them had with one another (for one Canadian dollar) to see which man could sleep with their chosen Diva first. As it turned out, they were anything but.
To many fans, neither courtship looked to be on the up and up. At the same time, Jericho's friend and tag team partner Christian was courting Stratus' close friend Lita. Stratus and Jericho appeared smitten with each other. One which apparently showed warmth, caring, and compassion.
Soon, however, Stratus started to slowly warm up to Jericho, seeing a side of him that many fans and fellow competitors did not see very often. Even Stratus seemed dumbfounded initially. One night on RAW, as Stratus was being attacked by Victoria and Steven Richards, Jericho inexplicably rushed the ring and warded off the attackers. October 2003 would mark the beginning of what would be Stratus' most emotional WWE saga; the triangle between Stratus, Chris Jericho, and Christian.
Thanks to an assist from the returning Lita, however, it would be Stratus who gained the last laugh. Soon, Molly approached Kim with the idea of forever ending Stratus's wrestling career, and for a time, it seemed as though it would happen. Kim helped Stratus to her feet before viciously clotheslining her to the mat. Two weeks later, the now former Champion Kim, who lost the title to Molly Holly the previous week, appeared to be saving Stratus from a two-on-one assault by Molly and Victoria.
A miscommunication between Stratus and Kim during a tag team match on RAW (in which Stratus misfired a Chick kick and accidentally nailed her partner) left Kim embittered. Stratus was engaged in a heated feud with newcomer Gail Kim, who won the Women's Championship on her first televised WWE match, by winning a battle royal. Despite losing the Championship back to Jazz the following month, Stratus stayed in the hunt for the fifth Women's Championship. At WrestleMania XIX on March 30, 2003, Stratus won her fourth WWE Women's Championship, in a triple threat match against two of her greatest rivals, the psychotic Victoria and Jazz.
Trish improved a lot in 2002 she got in the ring all most every couple days being that she was defending the title on both SmackDown! and RAW. Stratus also became WWE's most popular Diva, gracing the cover of WWE Divas 2002 swimsuit magazine (an alternate cover with Lita), and also winning the Woman of the Year achievement award as voted by the readers of Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine. She even managed to win the Hardcore Championship from Crash Holly, on May 6, 2002, before losing it the same night to Steven Richards. Stratus would go on to show significant improvement between the ropes, winning the Championship on two more occasions in 2002, from Jazz and Molly Holly, respectively.
Stratus had won her first WWE Women's Championship. Stratus pinned Ivory after unveiling her new Stratusfaction finisher, a modified bulldog headlock which saw Stratus apply the headlock, climb the ropes, and in mid-air, catapult herself backwards to the canvas with her opponent's head still gripped in her arms. Her return came at the Survivor Series on November 18, 2001, in a six-pack challenge for the vacant WWE Women's Championship, with Stratus facing off with Lita, Mighty Molly, Jacqueline, Ivory, and former ECW mainstay Jazz. By the time she returned to the ring, she was better prepared for in-ring combat than she had ever been before.
Finlay's schoolings served Stratus well. She received extensive ring training from Dave Finlay, a former WCW Television Champion. When she was not doing the show, Stratus continued training and rehabilitation, preparing herself for her comeback in the ring. As she rehabbed, Stratus kept herself visible by co-hosting Excess on TNN.
It would be at least four months before Stratus would fully heal and be able to continue her pursuit of wrestling glory. Her journey was temporarily cut short in the summer of 2001, however, when Stratus chipped a bone in her ankle and underwent surgery to repair it. After her episode with the McMahon family, Stratus began focusing wrestling in the ring full-time. Shortly thereafter, Linda stood up out of her wheelchair and kicked Vince in the groin, enabling Shane to gain control of the match and eventually pin his father.
When the action was taken to the floor, Stratus walked up to Vince and slapped the taste out of his mouth before chasing Stephanie from ringside. During a Street Fight between Vince and his son, then-WCW "owner" Shane McMahon, Stratus rolled out a seemingly catatonic Linda McMahon in a wheelchair to the ring. Few knew however that this was all part of a master plan Stratus had set into motion to embarrass her antagonist, and at WrestleMania X-Seven a month later, it all became crystal clear. Shockingly, she did.
Vince then said that the apology would only be accepted if she stripped down to her undergarments, got on all fours, and barked like a dog. The following week on RAW, Stratus actually gave Vince an apology for the disruption she felt he had caused in his life. Vince stood over Stratus, and he told her she was a toy that he had grown tired of playing with. Regal executed the Regal Cutter on Stratus, and Stephanie then dumped mud over Stratus's prone body.
In the midst of a tag team match that pitted Vince and Stratus against Regal and Stephanie, Stratus found herself the victim of a grand set-up by Vince, Stephanie and Regal. At No Way Out on February 25, Stratus and Stephanie squared off, with "The Billion-Dollar Princess" scoring a tainted win via the interference of William Regal. Vince and Stratus's relationship increasingly angered the boss's daughter, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley. In early 2001, Stratus became involved in a storyline with WWF Chairman Vince McMahon, during a time when Vince's wife Linda was "institutionalized" following a demand Vince had made for a divorce during a live show in Madison Square Garden in December 2000.
Stratus would go on to manage Val Venis to the Intercontinental Championship, but by that time, Stratus seemed to be outgrowing managing, as she had bigger aspirations on her mind. Although Stratus and her team lost the bout, she was not about to leave that night without making her mark, and proceeded to whip Lita with a leather strap before exiting the ring. It was not long before Stratus began competing in actual matches, one of the earliest examples being a six-person tag team match at Fully Loaded on July 23, 2000, as Stratus teamed with T & A to face The Hardy Boyz and Lita. More and more, Stratus found herself getting physically involved in the action, taking her bumps from Superstars like The Big Show and Chyna, and even suffering a stink face from Rikishi.
However, unlike many Divas before her, it only served to whet Stratus's appetite for in-ring action. It was during her stint managing T & A when Stratus had her first taste of punishment in the ring, being driven through a table by The Dudley Boyz after weeks of taunting the team, in particular Bubba Ray Dudley, notorious for his fondness for putting females through tables. Not long after, Stratus began her first role in the company, managing Test and Albert in the tag team T & A. Stratus appeared on the runway, appearing to scout certain WWF Superstars, in particular Test and Prince Albert.
Her first WWF appearance took place on March 19, 2000 on Sunday Night Heat. Growing up, Stratus idolized Hulk Hogan, and also had siblings and relatives who helped increase her interest in sports entertainment. The WWF again had contacted her in late-1999, and this time, Stratus was ready to start her career in sports entertainment, having been a fan since her childhood. Soon afterward, Stratus began her training at the gym of Ron Hutchinson, the same facility where Superstars like Edge and Christian had also trained for the ring.
This caught the attention of the WWF, whose agents told Stratus that if she felt she had more to her than her looks alone, then she should start training for a wrestling career. At one point, she also co-hosted a Canadian pro wrestling talk show called Live Audio Wrestling. Under the stage name of Trish Stratus, Stratigias quickly risen as one of the most popular models in the fitness industry, having appeared on over twenty fitness magazine covers around the world. After accepting a job at a local gym, Stratigias found herself responding to the urging of her peers there and became a fitness model.
However, York University went on strike during her graduating year, leaving Stratigias with no other choice at that time but to pursue other career options. In 1997, with the World Wrestling Federation experiencing a change in "Attitude" (rougher-edged characters like Stone Cold Steve Austin replacing the clean-cut heroes of yore like Bret Hart), Patricia Anne Stratigias was a student at York University in Toronto, majoring in biology and kinesiology in hopes of reaching her goal of attending medical school. . She was voted "WWE Babe of the Year" three times between 2001 and 2003, but was defeated by Stacy Keibler in the 2004 competition.
As a sports entertainer, she was proclaimed the WWE Diva of the Decade on RAW's 10th Anniversary show. She also released a calendar series called "Dream Team" with fellow model, Stacey Lynn. As a fitness model, Stratus has been featured on the cover of many major health and fitness magazines such as Musclemag, Flare and Total Women's Fitness. .
Stratus is marketed as the first woman in WWE history to have held the WWE Women's Championship six times, two more than the four title reigns of The Fabulous Moolah recognized by WWE. Patricia Anne Stratigias (born December 18, 1975 in Richmond Hill, Ontario), better known by her stage and ring name, Trish Stratus, is a Canadian professional wrestler and fitness model, currently working for World Wrestling Entertainment's RAW brand. 1-time WWE Hardcore Champion. 6-time WWF/E Women's Champion.
