With Raw taking place in her hometown of Toronto, Trish Stratus made a surprise appearance on tonight's show.
Stratus first interrupted Elias, with the story for the segment being that she was taking exception to him running down Toronto. Elias then insulted Stratus, leading to her slapping him.
Stratus also mentioned Evolution and her match against Alexa Bliss at the pay-per-view during the segment. She stayed in the ring ahead of the next match, with Ronda Rousey accompanying Natalya and Bliss coming out with Alicia Fox. Bliss cut a promo on Stratus, calling her irrelevant and saying that she replaced Stratus. She said nothing can save Stratus from the beatdown she's going to give her at Evolution.
Bliss brought out Stratus' old rival Mickie James, but Bliss and James backed away from Rousey and Stratus at ringside during the match. Natalya, Rousey, and Stratus celebrated after Natalya submitted Fox with the Sharpshooter.
Evolution is taking place at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York on October 28. Stratus' match will be the first time she's wrestled since the women's Royal Rumble in January. Before that, she hadn't wrestled since 2011.
