Trish Stratus set for SummerSlam match in Toronto

Following a promo by Charlotte Flair hinting at a match for SummerSlam, POST Wrestling has learned she will face Trish Stratus in Toronto.

On Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, Charlotte Flair hinted she would have a match at SummerSlam to prove she is the greatest of all-time and called herself the ‘Queen of All Eras’.

We can confirm through multiple sources that Charlotte Flair is scheduled to face Trish Stratus at SummerSlam on Sunday, August 11th in Toronto.

Ryan Satin at Pro Wrestling Sheet was the first to report that the two sides were in talks and POST Wrestling can confirm that the match is happening.

Stratus will return to the ring in her hometown of Toronto and have her first match since last October. Stratus teamed with Lita against Mickie James & Alicia Fox at the Evolution event and wrestled the next night on Raw in a ten-woman tag.

It will be the first time that Stratus and Flair have ever wrestled together and takes place at the arena where Stratus had her 2006 send-off match against Lita at the Unforgiven pay-per-view.

Stratus retired after that match as WWE women’s champion, a title she held seven times during his career. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 and has wrestled occasionally, including the first women’s Royal Rumble match in January 2018.

WWE has not officially announced the match.

Below is the updated card for SummerSlam on August 11th in Toronto:
*Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal title
*Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title
*Becky Lynch vs. Natalya for the Raw women’s title
*Bayley vs. Ember Moon for the SmackDown women’s title
*Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
*Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor
*Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus
