Trish Stratus On Getting Dissed

After an awkward moment at last year's Wrestlemania, Canadian wrestling icon-turned-yoga instructor Trish Stratus talks about backstage politics, and the challenge of being a woman in wrestling.

She'll be in the red chair tonight, as will CNN's business guru Ali Velshi.

TS: "We were on live television, we had a match, we won the match, we were victorious as a team, and then I went to go, you do that typical thing, you raise the hand you point, and he went, um, over there... Your career is made up of moments. So now you've takena moment from the fans, really. Because they don't care about backstage politics, they don't care if you think your girlfriend should be in that spot, or whatever it was... So, yeah, he just sort of denied the fans, denied himself, and that's that."

GS: "Would he have done that to you if you weren't a woman?"

TS: "Umm, probably wouldn't have done that to me if I wasn't a woman, yeah."
