Trish Stratus has been named the Cauliflower Alley Club's 2016 Iron Mike Mazurki Award winner.

The announcement came today in a press release from the Club (CAC) and marks the first time that a female competitor has received the prestigious award.

"To be recognized among my peers is incredible, and to be the first woman to receive this award is absolutely amazing." Trish said. "I can't thank the Cauliflower Alley Club enough for this honor. I look forward to reconnecting with both my former roster colleagues – and the heroes I watched growing up – at CAC 2016!"

As stated on the CAC website, the Award, "Pays tribute to individuals who are immediately recognizable both to those in wrestling and to many people outside the business. This individual must have achieved success in more than one field, all while displaying high moral character at all times."

Larry "The Axe" Hennig, father of the late Curt Hennig better known as Mr. Perfect was last year’s recipient. Other past recipients include Bret "Hitman" Hart, Jesse Ventura and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Trish’s trainer Ron Hutchison, winner of the 2015 trainers award, is thrilled to see Trish be welcomed into "the ring of friendship".

“Goers will see what I have been fortunate enough to bear witness to for a very long time," Hutchinson said. "You'd have to search long and hard to find anybody, male or female, as passionate, as focused, as endearing, as hard-working or as deserving as Trish Stratus.”
