The Mystery Unraveled

Trish Stratus, a name synonymous with WWE, took to Twitter to clear the air about her unexpected absence. In a light-hearted tweet, she mentioned that she was at her cottage, or as Americans might call it, a lakehouse.

She quipped, “Sorry I wasn’t on #WWERaw folks, the cottage was a calling. I think you people in the States call them lakehouses? In Canada, we call them cottages. If you need me, I’ll be at the lake. #CottageLife #LakeLife.”
