For the second year in a row, a judge with the Canada's Got Talent received a Key to the City of Niagara Falls as Mayor Jim Diodati presented it to Trish Stratus this morning.

Last year, it was Canadian comedian Howie Mandel who scored a Key to the City of Niagara Falls at the end of the Canada’s Got Talent shooting.

This year, Trish Stratus, also a judge on the popular talent show, got her key to the city this morning in a ceremony with Mayor Jim Diodati.

A Toronto native, Stratus, 47, is best-known as a former WWE superstar and Hall of Famer, as well as a television personality, entrepreneur and fitness icon.

Calling Niagara Falls her “second home” at the key presentation, her many contributions to entertainment and pop culture over the course of her career were highlighted at the event.

Said Diodati on his Twitter after the ceremony, “It was my pleasure to present Trish Stratus with a key to the City of Niagara Falls this morning! An eight-time WWE Network Champion & Hall of Famer, tv personality, entrepreneur and fitness icon… a woman of many talents!”

“We have so enjoyed supporting you and cheering you on over the years and are thankful you’ve shared your talents in television & entertainment in such a big way on the world stage. We are happy to present you with a Key to the City specially designed by local artist Skye’s Animation and look forward to watching you on the finale of Canada’s Got Talent filmed here in Niagara Falls tomorrow night!”

Born Patricia Anne Stratigeas, Stratus has appeared on a number of magazine covers and has been involved in charity work. She has also hosted several award and television shows and formerly owned a yoga studio.

Stratus has been a judge on Canada’s Got Talent for the past two years.
