After double checking our poll results with the law offices of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe, we can confirm that Trish Stratus has won our first ever Ask ‘Em: Epic WWE Love Songs of History Poll!
Of the 3 choices (you didn’t think Kirk Van Houten was a real contender, did you?), Trish’s song is the only one that’s an actual love song. “Hoeski” is about … well, and “Never Been A Right Time to Say Goodbye” is about heartbreak (no pun intended). Technically, “I Just Want You” is the underdog in the fight: it’s the only love song, it’s the only song by a WWE Diva and it’s the only song not to Chart anywhere, be it the UK (Bret) or the iTunes (Ryder). But has Trish Stratus ever truly been an underdog?
No, not when this is the year for the 7-time Women’s Champion will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I’m sure The Hitman – gracious in this defeat – will welcome his fellow Canadian Superstar into the Hall of Fame. As for Ryder? Well, keep in mind: Justin Bieber wasn’t nominated for a Grammy this year and he’s doing fine. Certainly, there’s still hope of the Woo Woo Woo Kid. Grammys 2014, anyone?
Congratulations, Trish! You can place this honor right next to your Diva of the Decade Award, Women’s Championship and your “Best Wrestler Turned Yogi” Award (better luck next time, DDP!)
