Why would the WWE remove that interview? Scooter thinks its because of his mention in it and not because of her other name drops. Overall i thought it was harmless and the WWE is just parinoid about the internet.

Anyone have a copy of what was said? Would be curious to see if it even exists/existed....

The interview is still up at http://www.wrestlerevolt.cjb.net and PWBTS (I think) but was pulled from TheSmartMarks...bascially it was a general interview but what was a little touchy maybe was alluding to drug use in WWE, saying she would rat out anyone and that some of the boys smoke pot. From the gist of it it seems she thought it was for a small site. Having Keith's book however is unforgiveable!!! :)

Here's a link to the full interview, which was posted on Usenet. Her official site Click Here (trishstratus.com) says that the interview was never even conducted.

Thanks, Homer.

And now that I've read it for myself.... gotta wonder whether its an actual interview from her or not. A lot of these answers seem generic enough, but just the language of it... I just don't know. It doesn't sound like her to me.

There's a 10 page thread over at The Smart Marks that explains the whole thing(kinda).

For added Trish Stratus mystery fun, supposedly she posted at Wrestling Classics. Of course, the real fun is watching the posters trip over themselves to kiss up to Trish.

I'm inclined to believe that the guy got worked by an impostor, but there is a somewhat strong possibility that it's true.

If this was a legit interview, then it was a pretty good interview.

Come on Scotsman, admit it! YOU are the Trish Stratus impersonator. You really did it this time. Either it's Scotsman, or it's "TL Hopper."

I think the first post said on that link says it all. Clearly they had no idea who they were interviewing.

Looks like they are pretty long on the 'mark' and short on the 'smart'.

Yeah, I'm sure Trish is sitting at home giving out interviews over AOL Instant Messenger to some website.

The easiest way to clear up the whole issue would be to trace the logged IP of the "TS" poster at Wrestling Classics.

At last night's RAW house show in London, ON. Trish wasn't even in the card. She's from Toronto, and she didn't even compete.

I wonder if that has anything to do with Trish's interview.

Let's look at the FACTS here, people.

Trish is a)Gorgeous, and b)Employed by the largest wrestling company in the world as, arguably, their number one female star. And she happens to give an interview in EXTREMELY suspect circumstances (over IM), to a wrestling website, that praises the IWC and pretty much fulfils many writer's wildest dreams of knowing that "Oh Gee Whizz! Trish reads and loves my stuff!".

Sorry, but this whiffs to high Heaven.

Having read the interview my bullshit detectors are buzzing and wailing at that whole thing.

However....the only thing I would say is that Trish, perhaps more than anyone else, has a long history with the IWC, having started off doing the net and radio thing with LAW. So maybe, just maybe, she has a certain affection for our little branch of overeager fans. I doubt it, but it seems a hair more possible with her than 99% of the rest of the roster.

A lot of people believe the interviewee actually was Trish, because Test a while back gave away Trish's AIM screenname on either a ByteThis talk or an AOL chat, depending on whatever poster is telling the story.

Unless Trish had her screenname hacked into, Retro Rob of TSM was indeed talking to Trish.

The wrestlingclassics.com issue is another story, as that could definitely be someone impersonating Trish, although the person on AIM (again, presumably Trish) did say that they post on that message board.

For what it's worth, I recall Hyatte saying that someone claiming to be Trish had been chatting with him, but that he thought it was someone bullshitting him.

They still do AOL chats?

A quick look at the Byte This page shows that Test hasn't been on the show since at least last October. It'd be odd if it was out there for that long and just now she opted to start doing inteviews; why the sudden change when she must've been getting those requests multiple times a day since then?

And if I was a hot babe (not even mentioning being semi-famous) and someone gave out my AIM address, I'd probably go and change it just to prevent a billion annoying people from bugging me when I'm trying to talk to other people. (Actually, I've got mine on "block people who aren't on my list and I'm not a hot babe (mostly) so there you go.)

Plus Test is a heel so you know he lied to work the people. DARN THAT TEST.

Um, when you have things like "...depending on whatever poster is telling the story", that doesn't exactly scream out 'reliable information'. This is still third-hand information, and has the look of an "urban legend" (the inconsistency of the stories should be a red flag)

The problem i had with it from the start is that the WWE wrestlers dont do interviews for small sites. Its a known fact that the Observer and Torch get the best interviews and No Holds on the radio.
