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!”
