You’ve been waiting months to find out who the #1 choice would be. Could it really be anybody else?
Born Patricia Anne Stratigeas, this Ontario native took the wrestling world by storm before redefining what it meant to be a “Diva” in the WWE. She started out enrolling at York University, where she studied biology and kinesiology before a faculty strike changed her plans. She then became a receptionist before becoming a fitness model in 1998. She signed with WWE in 2000 and started off as an “arm candy” manager of T & A (Test & Albert). By 2001, though, she was winning the WWE Women’s Championship and trailblazing her way to becoming the most iconic diva in wrestling history. She’s a 7-time Women’s champion, a 3-time WWE “Babe of the Year“, the 2000’s WWE “Diva of the Decade“, a 4-time Pro Wrestling Illustrated “Woman of the Year“, and entered the WWE Hall of Fame in the Class of 2013. Currently, Stratus is an award winning owner of a yoga studio named Stratusphere in Toronto, Ontario, a mother to a son born in 2013 named Maximus (how cool is that?), and a philanthropist/advocate for a number of charities such as Ronald McDonald House and the Special Olympics. What’s even more amazing is that at the age of 39, Stratus hasn’t lost a step when it comes to her incredible physique:
Trivia Notes: Stratus was a radio host before her time with WWE as a member of Live Audio Wrestling on Toronto Sports Radio, The FAN 590 (just to show you how much of a fan she already was before being signed by WWE). She won a Toronto area “Business Woman of the Year” award in 2010 and won a Best Yoga Studio award in 2013. She married her high school sweetheart of 14 years in 2006 (that MUST be love). She has starred in two movies (Bounty Hunter and the upcoming Gridlocked) and is also an avid golfer.
