After nearly seven years in the business, Stratus retired from professional wrestling at WWE Unforgiven on September 17, 2006 after winning her record-setting seventh WWE Women's Championship.
In 2011, Stratus was a trainer for WWE Tough Enough.
Early in her career, she was mostly involved in sexually themed storylines, such as managing the team T & A (Test & Albert, while doubling as a slang expression abbreviated from "Tits and Ass"), and a kayfabe affair with Vince Mc Mahon's Mr. As Stratus spent more time in the ring, her perceived wrestling skills strengthened and her popularity increased.
Because of this, she was made a one-time WWE Hardcore Champion, three-time "WWE Babe of the Year" and was proclaimed "Diva of the Decade".
She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 as the youngest member in its history.
