WWE fans were left puzzled when the Hall of Famer Trish Stratus was conspicuously absent from the recent Monday Night Raw episode aired from Minneapolis, Minnesota on August 7th.
With the anticipation building up for the culmination of her intense rivalry with Becky Lynch, her absence was all the more noticeable.
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.”
The Ongoing Feud
The absence of Stratus was particularly felt because the WWE universe is just a week away from what is expected to be the grand finale of her long-standing feud with Becky Lynch.
The showdown is set to take place on the upcoming RAW episode from Winnipeg, Canada on August 14th. With Stratus missing from the scene, her protégé Zoey Stark stepped up to confront Lynch.
However, the night didn’t end well for Stark as she faced defeat at the hands of Shayna Baszler, with Lynch observing the match from ringside.
What Lies Ahead for Stratus?
The future of Trish Stratus in WWE remains shrouded in mystery. With the climax of her four-month-long rivalry with Becky Lynch on the horizon, fans are eager to see what’s next for the legend.
Speculations are rife as WWE teased a potential face-off between Lynch and Shayna Baszler on the recent Raw episode. Additionally, there were hints of a possible Rhea Ripley vs. Lynch angle before the Money in the Bank event on July 1st.
