** However, it was played as ''weird'' and ''disturbing'' at the time, in re Mickie's apparent SanitySlippage. Wrestling/JerryLawler said, "It's like [[BizarroUniverse Bizarro World]]." Wrestling/JoeyStyles said, "It's like ''Raw'' has entered ''Series/TheTwilightZone.''"

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Big tits....blonde hair.... bitchy attitude...Everything that made {{Wrestling/Sable}} great, but with the wrestling prowess that Sable lacked. Problem is, women's wrestling has moved miles ahead of Trish. She should not be in the same discussion as the current NXT crop.
** 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. These days the idea of a model-turned-wrestler is nothing new (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.

* 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 discussions on Stratus's career can get dicey.

** 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 only been in the company just under two years). However the surprise was that Trish worked hard to properly improve and produce good matches. These days the idea of a model-turned-wrestler is nothing new (given WWE's past hiring practices) - but Trish actually evolving 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 are clearly the inspiration for products like ''SHIMMER''. While those matches now pale in comparison to the ''SHIMMER'' women, it was them that proved American crowds ''did'' want to see women actually wrestle.

* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: Winning seven Women's Championship titles, almost twice as many as the previous record (4), held by the Fabulous Moolah.
** Managed to make The Diva Search entertaining.
** Her farewell match at ''Unforgiven 2006''.
*** When she slapped on the Sharpshooter, the crowd ''exploded''.
** In December 2008, Wrestling/JohnCena is put in a match against Wrestling/SantinoMarella and Wrestling/BethPhoenix. He spends part of the night trying to find a partner, and when he comes to the ring, he mentions that Santa left him a little gift. Cue Trish's music, and an explosion from the fans.
*** Cena wasn't kidding about the gift. As fans remember, Cena had a quite-obvious...erectile issue during the [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments entirety of the match]], to the point where even the commentators were audibly stifling their laughter whenever Cena (and his package) was shown close-up on camera. Apparently, Trish is that gorgeous in person.
** And now, seven years after her retirement match, she '''finally''' becomes an inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.
** Her entire career arc. Going from one of the endless parade of useless eye candy {{Smart Mark}}s hate, to being inducted into the Hall of Fame as one of the greatest of all time of either gender.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Not entirely unintentional, but despite Mickie James saving an injured Trish and an over matched Ashley from Victoria on her Raw debut, Stratus remained unimpressed with James for quite a bit of time. Even after they started to get along, Trish did not seem particularly grateful for Mickie helping her out against MNM or eliminating herself to ensure Victoria did not win the title in a battle royal. When Mickie earned herself a title shot, Trish was also the less friendly of the two during the defense. The long term plan was to turn one of the women heel and have the feud but "creative" couldn't settle on who it would be, so the idea was to leave hints for both of them until they could come to a decision. Thing is, Mickie didn't do anything wrong until she started getting jealous of Ashley, not long before her full on turn. Trish had been dropping hints since ''day two'' of the angle. If there had been a more even portrayal throughout the angle, the crowd might not have completely turned on Trish at Wrestlemania. Probably also not helped by it being something of a RecycledScript of a storyline between Sable and Tori - which had the fan as the face and the champ as the heel.
