SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
A new action movie featuring WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus is officially out Tuesday.
“Gridlocked” is available on home video featuring Stratus in a supporting role alongside Danny Glover, Vinnie Jones, and Dominic Purcell from “Prison Break.”
Stratus talked to WWE’s website about getting a role in the movie through conversations with Edge (Adam Copeland) and being able to film locally in Toronto shortly after giving birth to her baby Max.
Stratus said she “met with the producers and the director, who happened to be Toronto-based and WWE fans, so they were familiar with my body of work. The director was willing to take chance on me because he realized that what we do in WWE is acting.”
Stratus did not discuss whether she will be returning to WWE TV any time soon, but hyped the movie as a chance to reconnect with WWE fans who want to see her in action.
“It’s a throwback to classic action flicks. It’s smartly written and has some comedy in it as well. There’s lots of action and a– kicking. It’s just an entertaining movie that people will enjoy. WWE fans will be Stratusfied,” she closed the interview.
