Trish Stratus Pulled From RAW, Further Delaying Her Comeback
As most fans know by now, Becky Lynch and Lita showed up in Trish’s spot. In fact, they ended up throwing out a challenge for those WWE Women’s Tag Titles.
According to a recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter report, Stratus was also supposed to be on the February 13th RAW. However, that was scrapped too.
Trish Stratus is one of the most celebrated female wrestlers in recent history. Not only is she a WWE Hall of Famer (class of 2013), but she held the Women’s title on seven separate occasions, was once a Hardcore Champion, and was named Diva of the Decade in 2003.
Will Trish make a WWE comeback? Perhaps it is in the cards for WrestleMania 39.
Over to some sad news. A former WWE star is dealing with health issues.
Ex-Star Has Health Issues
The land of wrestling can be entertaining, but the business can take a toll on talent. The frequent bumps, shots to the head, and more can leave wrestlers suffering from health issues as they age.
At 51 years old, it sounds like former WWE star Stevie Richards is starting to deal with the ramifications of his wrestling career. The wrestler recently hopped on Instagram to reveal the dire health conditions he’s battling.

Richards also states in the post that while he hasn’t hit the “finish line” yet, he is on the road to recovery. He also reveals he’ll explain more and plans on documenting his journey on YouTube.
According to PW Insider, Stevie is dealing with spine and back problems. The report notes his health condition has worsened over the last few weeks.
This is likely why he needed to be in the hospital and use a walker. While in ECW, Richards injured his neck in early 1997.
He was hit in the back and neck by Terry Funk, who used a guardrail. Stevie got surgery and would return to work by August of that year, then signing with WCW.
No indication if his current health issues are linked to the above incident. WNZ will keep fans up to date on any developments surrounding this story.
Richards worked for ECW, WCW, the WWE, TNA, and the indies during his career. While with the WWE, he became a Hardcore champion 21 times!
