Trish Stratus on Breaking Away from the “Eye Candy” Image in WWE

Trish Stratus recently told SLAM! Wrestling in an interview how difficult it was to break away from the “eye candy” image during a Q&A session.

“Harder than you think!,” she replied. “Remember – this was an era where ‘we want puppies!’ was chanted more than just about anything else in WWE arenas. To try to break away from that image, it was a matter of having to go out there and re-educate the fans on what we female performers could deliver in the ring. I knew that each time we stepped into the ring, we had a chance to showcase a different side and for me, I made a point to showcase an athletic performer – one who kicked ass!”

    Too bad all it now is Eye Candy. The Diva division died with Lita, Trish and Mickie James.

    Its great to see females breaking the mold and kicking ass however we still want to see “puppies”
