WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus released a statement on Instagram in which she reflected on her final match from SummerSlam one week ago in which she lost to Charlotte Flair.
In her post, Stratus called Flair one of the best of the era and noted her loss was a passing of the torch moment.
"One week ago I stepped into the ring for what at first was my comeback match... but slowly realized was my farewell match, a passing of the proverbial torch if you will. It was an honour and a privilege to step into the ring with @charlottewwe, one of the very best of her era, a total pro. Feeling immense gratitude to the current roster of woman who allowed me to dip my toes into their current waters. In the beginning of my career, I set out to knock down the preconceived notion of what a female could do in this male oriented business and the current roster of ladies represent everything we dreamed of. If we laid the platform, you all have built a friggin skyscraper and we all couldn’t be prouder!
And now I get to sit back and watch my girls (tagged #smackdownlive) continue to take the women’s division to new heights."
