WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus enjoyed an illustrious career in wrestling and is known to be one of the most decorated athletes of her generation. The seven-time women’s champion was known for her numerous relationships on-screen, with one being with The Rock. The pair shared immense on-screen chemistry during programming in 2006. In one instance, Stratus was seen entering Rock’s locker room and sharing a kiss.
Speaking on the matter during an interview on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette (via Wrestling INC), the Hall of Famer opened up on how her husband, Ron Fisico, reacted to their on-screen chemistry and the kiss. She stated that since they were childhood wrestling fans and have been around watching wrestling together, he got the product and understood where she was coming from.

“He gets the business. I’d go, ‘I have to kiss The Rock tonight.’ He’s like ‘cool. That’s going to be great for your character.’ Amazing right? As opposed to what may be another husband might say.”
Stratus enjoyed an illustrious WWE career and thanked her husband for playing a major part in it. The Hall of Famer added that he had insight into the business and understood what was needed. She concluded that his support and understanding of the business had led them to spend so many years in a happy marriage.

Did dating Dwayne Johnson help Trish Stratus in WWE?
WWE legend Hardcore Holly alleged in his book, The Hardcore Truth: The Bob Holly Story, that Stratus’ career was propelled by being in a relationship with The Rock. He stated that she was a mediocre wrestler whose relationship with Dwayne Johnson helped her.
“Trish Stratus was all right but wasn’t that great a wrestler, nowhere near as good as everybody makes her out to be. She got her push because she was somebody in the fitness world, so Vince wanted to capitalize on that. I’m sure her relationship with Rocky didn’t hurt either,” he wrote.

However, the pair were never in a relationship, and the rumors have since been quashed. The Rock was married at the time to his first wife, Dany Garcia, while Stratus was in a relationship with Ron Fisico. However, it should be noted that neither of the legends has ever commented on the matter, as it was all part of their job.
