WWE Upset At Trish Stratus For Skipping WrestleMania 25

The rumor is that the reason for the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania was from the big reaction Trish Stratus received when they were in Toronto for Raw last December. Being ones to take advantage of big reactions, the WWE figured Wrestlemania would make a great place to bring back a number of their WWE Divas. Supposedly, Trish declined when she learned of WWE creative’s plan to have Santina Marella win the match, but that is not confirmed.

And worse still, Trish Stratus, Amy “Lita” Dumas and Wendi Richter — three of the bigger names they wanted to bring back — all declined.

Why? Read on.

In Richter’s case, the common theory is her age. She didn’t want to be put in a position to be embarrassed body wise by being compared to the women of today. Richter is 47 years old and understandably looks different than how she used to look during her prime in the mid-1980s.

Amy Dumas was busy with an appearance at Booker T’s charity fan fest event that took place in Houston during WrestleMania weekend.

Stratus’s reason seems to be one of image. It’s believed that some people were upset during negotiations as there were some negative things said about the seven-time Women’s Champion amongst management during WrestleMania weekend over her not being there.

Shame though. Legends of the Industry are always welcome at Wrestlemania, and it only would have made the weekend even better, regardless of who won.
