Speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, the former Women’s Champion first revealed the background with her husband. 

“When I went to University I wanted to become a doctor so I was focused, laser-focused on what I was doing. He was laser-focused on doing his own thing in his business and we wanted to know for sure, we wanted to establish ourselves as separate entities in our own rights, and then yeah, then the wrestling thing came up,” she said.

Trish Stratus claims her husband is also a fan of pro wrestling

Trish believes that her husband was also a fan of pro wrestling and so understood how it worked. For this reason, he had no real issues with her kissing The Rock if it meant big things for her character. 

“I had to make the transition from school full time to my fitness career and then to wrestling and so I always say like, because Ron and I were fans for so long too I think he hits gives me that insight,” she said. “He gets the business. When I’m like ‘I have to kiss The Rock tonight’, he’s like ‘Cool, that’s gonna be great for your character.'”

“Isn’t that amazing right? As opposed to what maybe another husband might say?”
