WWE.com: Are You Ready For Some Wrestling?

BUFFALO, NY – This week’s Raw started out with a bang, so to speak, and surprised its viewers with an unexpected parody, that not only filled the HSBC Arena, but also millions of homes across the globe, with laughter.

In the opening segment, Trish Stratus tried to seduce Shelton Benjamin, before baring her assets to Mr. McMahon, and jumping in his arms, while the WWE Chairman introduced the broadcast by uttering six now-famous words. “Are you ready for some wrestling?” McMahon asked whimsically, with a huge grin on his face, cleverly rewording the weekly motto used by Raw’s Monday night gridiron counterpart.

“Obviously it was a natural fit,” Trish said of her classic performance. “If Nicolette Sheridan played the resident sex kitten on Monday Night Football, then I should be playing the resident sex kitten on Raw, especially since none of the other Divas are in my league. But in all honesty, it was a great chance and an opportunity for us to really show NFL fans that we’re simply a better, more exciting product.”

Another thing the parody was likely to have done, was to create a buzz throughout the sports and entertainment industries. Although if you ask Trish, being in the middle of controversy is nothing new. A few short years ago, Stratus caused a similar stir by getting down on all four, and barking like a dog. Ironically, that moment also included both Stratus and Mr. McMahon.

“What can I say?” the Diva from Toronto, Ontario, Canada pondered. “I am controversial, and whatever I’m involved in usually creates a buzz. I guess you can say Trish Stratus just gets people talking.”
