Re: Who's legacy aged well over the years Lita or Trish Stratus
You guys make valid points and a majority believe Trish legacy aged better. Let me play devil's advocate and say that if it is true how come models in WWE never lasted. How come WWE had to bring legit women wrestlers after the flops they had with the model era. Lita's legacy has had a more wholistic legacy then Trish that went beyond WWE revisionist history.
If you were to ask any female wrestler who were their influences a majority would say Lita over Trish. The people that say Trish are often Canadians like Natalya, Alexa etc. I see more women in the indie scenes cite Lita.
A lot of people like to harp on the ending of their careers but as time moved forward Lita became more memorable to the fans then Trish. I think Lita's elements aged better then Trish cause in this current era of wrestling we are seeing more women be bolder and different instead of being model prototypes like Trish. Lita was the conduit to the women's revolution as well as Chyna.
Trish to me was never a conduit, she improved herself in the ring but most of her career was projected on her looks. Majority of women wrestlers today and fans have moved beyond and to me I think Lita made that possible in terms of her lasting legacy. People like AJ Lee, Paige and Sasha Banks were all inspired by Lita and they both have made the biggest impressions in the company.
