IGN.com recently caught up with Former WWE Diva and current Tough Enough trainer Trish Stratus to discuss several subjects including the past divas, current divas, yoga, and the newest season of WWE Tough Enough premiering April 4th – the night after WrestleMania XXVII. In the interview, Trish mentions working with Lita:
Who was Trish’s favorite opponent in the ring? “It’s hard to pick just one, but Lita and I probably had the biggest rivalry,” she admitted. “The minute you put the two of us in the ring, the fans just got it. We both came in around the same time so we had been in the business for the same amount of time, which gave the fans a chance to get to know us both and grow with us and see us evolve and things like that. So, there was a real connection with the audience. So, no matter if she was a good guy or a bad guy or we were both in the audience, we always felt like we could really connect with the crowd and kind of create that oh my God moment.”

This month WWE.com is doing Women’s History Month: featuring Divas from the past and present. In celebration, WWE Classics On Demand is featuring over 30 matches involving the Divas and Lita has a few of her own listed.
Raw – Matt Hardy/Lita vs. Eric Bischoff/Molly Holly
November 17, 2003 | Approx. run time: 14 mins.
A lot happened on this edition of Monday Night Raw. To begin, Lita was the guest of Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel. Jericho introduced the return of Matt Hardy to the Raw Brand. From that point forward everything went downhill. Relive the Highlight Reel, find out how this mixed tag involving Eric Bischoff came about and see one of the most heinous acts Matt Hardy has ever committed!
Armageddon 2003 – Chris Jericho/Christian vs. Lita/Trish Stratus
December 14, 2003 | Approx. run time: 11 mins.
Chris Jericho and Christian thought it was a harmless bet to see who could first get with either Lita or Trish. Once Trish Stratus found out about this, the ladies wanted revenge. Facing Jericho and Christian was probably not what they had in mind. GM Eric Bischoff felt differently and signed this “Battle of the Sexes” contest!
Raw – Lita vs. Trish Stratus
December 6, 2004 | Approx. run time: 9 mins.
When looking at all the Divas to ever grace WWE, the one that stands out as the greatest high-flyer has to be Lita. Lita and Trish Stratus always seemed to find each other no matter who the fan-favorite was. You won’t believe how heated their rivalry becomes in this Women’s Title match. Plus, one of the craziest (and scariest) moments during a Divas match to ever happen takes place; you won’t believe what you’re about to see!
One Night Stand 2006 – Edge, Mick Foley & Lita vs. Terry Funk, Tommy Dreamer & Beulah
June 11, 2006 | Approx. run time: 29 mins.
One Night Stand 2006 featured an out of control Six-Person Tag Team Match. You won’t believe all the crazy action and you’ll see for yourself why this match is still talked about today!
Unforgiven – Trish Stratus vs. Lita
September 17, 2006 | Approx. run time: 23 mins.
Trish Stratus and Lita undoubtedly have the most storied rivalry between any two Divas in sports-entertainment history. Trish was ready to retire at Unforgiven and was hoping to go out on top as Women’s Champion. Lita of course had other intentions. Find out who would walk out as champion by the end of the night.
