Former WWE Superstar and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus recently appeared on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast.
The woman regarded as one of the greatest in WWE history discussed a number of topics during the interview, including the term Diva and WWE changing the Women’s division to the Diva’s division back in the 2000s.
‘I don’t think I ever uttered the word Diva,’ Trish Stratus said on the podcast. ‘Maybe I did, but in interviews I never called myself Diva. I refused. I just didn’t get it, I didn’t get, because I enjoyed, in the beginning that we were called superstars.”
“We were all called superstars. And when they started this Diva thing I was like ’˜ugh'” Stratus added. “Because as a tomboy the word Diva I was like ’˜oh my god. I’m a Diva? No, I’m not. I don’t qualify.’”

“Even what they were calling a Diva, I’m not even that. I don’t think I’m that. So I was never behind that term at all. Even when they did the Diva Championship it was like ’˜oh, okay’” the Canadian Superstar continued.
‘But when they finally got rid of it, it was like that point where they put the six pack challenge together and decided to start the division. It was like a restart, it was like a reboot” Trish Stratus noted. “A chance to turn over a new leaf.”
Stratus would finish by praising the WWE Superstars who paved the way during the Divas division. “I want to say, not to say anything about the girls who competed for the Divas Championship or were Divas Champions. Because again, the title is what it is. They’re still doing the work and still paving the path and doing the work for females everywhere.”
