Stratus has been on TV before. The Women’s Revolution has changed the way wrestling is presented in a great way. Women’s wrestling has gone from little more than filler material centered around women’s looks to something that actually matters, with the wrestlers getting to show what they can do and even be on equal footing with men. One of the pioneers who paved the way for this generation is getting to do something cool again.
When you hear modern female wrestlers talking about the people who influenced them growing up, one of the names who keeps coming up is Trish Stratus. She was one of the most successful women’s wrestlers of all time and for a good many years was one of the gold standards for American women’s wrestling. That is a pretty lofty goal to reach and now she is going to be able to add something else to her non-wrestling resume.
Stratus has announced that she will be appearing in the movie Christmas In The Rockies, which debuts on the FOX Nation streaming service on Thursday November 26. She will be playing a lumberjack champion named Marie Brown in a cameo role. Stratus has said that this is a bucket list item for her as she has always wanted to be in a Christmas movie. This is Stratus’ third appearance in a movie and her first since 2015.
Add it to her resume. Check out some of Stratus’ more famous work:
Opinion: That’s rather cool and good for her for getting to do something she wants to do. It doesn’t seem like Stratus is wanting to have some full time career as an actress so good for her for just getting to do something like this. It sounds like a role she could do well in so hopefully it’s even slightly a success. Stratus was a legend in wrestling so if she gets to do something she wants in retirement, well done.
