PLAYERS: Trish Stratus
Trish Stratus was asked how difficult it was to break away from the "eye candy" image during a recent Q&A with SLAM! Wrestling. "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!"
