* BrokenBase: Trish's status as "The Diva Of The Decade" rubbed some people the wrong way for being declared prematurely. Her early "WWE Hall Of Fame Induction" is perceived by some to demonstrate the comparative lack of respect her contemporaries tended to get. Chris Jericho was one of the voices who complained about her retiring as champion, citing Wrestling/ShinyaHashimoto's retirement match from Wrestling/{{N|ewJapanProWrestling}}JPW as the way to do things and citing Trish not dropping the belt as a reason breaking Undertaker's streak was a good thing.[[note]]He picked two bad examples since Shinya's "retirement" match was a shoot that could have seriously hurt him while Taker did not stop wrestling after his streak ended.[[/note]] For the most part marks, fellow wrestlers and whatever categories in between tend to be fond or at least tolerant of her but an in depth discussion on Stratus's career can get dicey.
* [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]]: During the StalkerWithACrush angle with Wrestling/MickieJames, toward its zenith, Mickie had started dressing like Trish. This causes Trish to come out, dressed like Mickie, and does an entire promo with a pretty hilarious Mickie James impersonation.
** However, it was played as ''weird'' and ''disturbing'' at the time, in Mickie's apparent SanitySlippage. Wrestling/JerryLawler said, "It's like [[BizarroUniverse Bizarro World]]." Wrestling/JoeyStyles said, "It's like ''Raw'' has entered ''Series/TheTwilightZone.''"
** Wrestling/{{Rikishi}} giving her the Stinkface. He later said on ''WWE Confidential'' that he thought it was his best-ever Stinkface because the camera angle behind him made it look like Trish's entire head was up his butt.
* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]]: Her retirement match, her win at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} XIX'', reuniting with Wrestling/{{Lita}} at the Raw 15th Anniversary... too many to count.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Be honest. You probably think she should have used [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7aDstrDMf0 "Short Skirt/Long Jacket"]] by Music/{{CAKE}} as her theme song, too.
* FoeYay: With [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Stephanie [=McMahon=]]].

to:

** At Wrestlemania XIX after ''months'' of being tormented by Victoria and Jazz, she defeats both of them in an awesome triple threat match to win her fourth Women's Championship. In effect, this tied her with the Fabulous Moolah for the most amount of times the title had been held.
** She and Lita were bitter rivals throughout their WWE careers but they finally put their differences aside on the 15th anniversary of Raw and reunited in the ring. During the beer bash at the end, the two could be seen walking down the ramp together chatting just like old friends. Of course they are best friends in real life and have worked on many projects together since.

tune and fits Trish's career so well.
* FandomRivalry: With Lita fans understandably, given that they were both the top female stars of the Ruthless Aggression Era. The debate is of course over which one was better in the ring[[note]]Lita had a year on the indies and ECW before she was signed, while Trish was trained exclusively on the road in WWE. Both won their first titles with about a year of experience.[[/note]] Not to mention both retired within months of each other and got the polar opposite of send-offs; Trish a beautiful one and Lita a disrespectful one, greatly annoying her fans. This rivalry ignores that the two are best friends in real life, and many fans love them both for what they did for women's wrestling.
* FoeYay: With [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon. Given that the feud was based around Stephanie [=McMahon=]]].disliking Trish having an affair with her father, one sometimes got the impression that Stephanie wanted Trish for herself instead.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: She was pretty unpopular when she started, mostly because she somehow had no charisma and was so bad in the ring that she could botch a catfight. Then there was the infamous "table promo", where she dressed up in various lingerie and writhed on some tables. Then she took a table bump from Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys, got legitimately injured from it, and instead of quitting went through rehab.

** Big tits....blonde hair.... bitchy attitude...Everything that made {{Wrestling/Sable}} great, but with the wrestling prowess that Sable lacked. Trish helped maintain a standard for women wrestlers in WWE. Thing is, there are WWE fans that came to have higher standards, even from developmental programs such as NXT.
** WWE had spent the Attitude Era putting the title on pretty women with no real wrestling ability, so it came as no surprise when they put it on Trish in late 2001 (after she had concluded her first year in the company). However the surprise was that Trish worked hard to properly improve and produce good matches. The idea of a model-turned-wrestler soon enough became standard, given WWE's hiring practices, but Trish turning from valet to wrestler on screen was a huge idea at the time. Likewise she was also involved in matches and feuds that were actually getting time. The matches she had with Jazz, Molly Holly, Victoria and Lita inspired some of the women who would later work for promotions like SHIMMER and while those matches often pale in comparison to SHIMMER cards, they proved American crowds ''did'' want to see women actually wrestle.
* TheWoobie: While she came off as a total bitch during most of her affair angle with [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]], when he started to really demean her (forcing her to act like a dog and referring to her as his "toy"), it was hard not to feel for her.

wrestle. Cewsh Reviews even noted this when they [[https://cewshreviews.com/2016/03/21/cewsh-reviews-wrestlemania-xix/ watched Wrestle Mania XIX back]]:
--> "I still think that people may not remember clearly just how great Trish was in her role as the figurehead of this division. The fans are way into everything she does, she never misses a beat on anything, and she is giving 100% effort on everything she does. You can tell that she’s not as natural as the other two in the ring, but that just further serves to sell her as the underdog babyface that you can’t help but root for."
* TheWoobie: TestosteroneBrigade: In contrast to Lita, who had the OneOfUs and LadEtte image to help win them over, Trish has always had a crop of male fans who both love her as a MsFanservice and respect her for her in-ring achievements.
