Congratulations to Trish Stratus, the most recent name added to the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2013. I must say I was surprised by this announcement, mostly because I've tried to avoid any HOF spoilers before actually hearing them on Raw.  I somehow managed to do that with Trish's announcement.

Trish is obviously a great choice for the Hall of Fame.  She is one of the best women to compete in the WWE through the years and she's not been gone long enough for current fans to have forgotten her.

When she first arrived on the scene more than a decade ago, I figured she'd just be another asset to the Attitude Era because of her looks.  She managed Test and Albert in a team appropriately known as T&A (insert your own joke here)  But once Trish started wrestling she proved she was more than a pretty face.  I feel like she earned her spot and the titles she collected while wrestling in the WWE.  She was involved in some great matches with competitors like Lita, Mickie James, and Jazz.

She left when the time was right for her, not overstaying her welcome.  Two years ago she teamed up with Snooki at Wrestlemania 27 and it didn't look as if she missed a step. She has also passed her knowledge on to future superstars by helping judge Tough Enough.

It pains me to see someone younger than me (Trish is 37) be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but it's great to see she's being recognized for her accomplishments in and out of the ring.  She truly is deserving of the honor.  Just please tell me that Snooki won't be the one doing the ceremony.
