WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus recently wrestled at the SummerSlam pay-per-view, where she faced Charlotte Flair in the last match of her wrestling career. The 7-time Women’s Champion performed admirably well in the match, and gave a memorable performance to end her career on a high.

WWE is hosting a 20-year Anniversary Special Episode of SmackDown on October 4, which is also the debut episode of the blue brand on FOX. Several legends have already been announced for the show including Ric Flair, Sting, and The Undertaker to name a few.

Stratus has also joined the list, after she announced her appearance on Twitter recently. Stratus retired from full-time competition in 2006, and has made part-time appearances ever since.

It will be interesting to see what segment she features in on the debut episode. Her appearance is surely going to draw in more fans, especially the ones from the bygone era.

WWE’s partnership with FOX is not only limited to SmackDown Live, as reports of a weekly show on Fox Sports have picked up steam in the recent weeks. According to WrestleVotes, WWE will present a new show on FS1 on Tuesday nights, with Booker T and Renee Young as the hosts.

Talks of Young leaving the RAW commentary booth to host this show have been present since quite some time, however, this is the first time King Booker has been mentioned.

There is still no premiere date for the show, but it should start airing in October. The show will serve as a weekly recap episode, which could be a part of FOX’s attempt to present SmackDown as a sports-oriented show.

Renee Young excels at such hosting gigs, while her commentary stint has been disappointing. Hopefully, Booker and Young work well in tandem and create an entertaining show on FS1.
