On a recent edition of the “Insight” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Torrie Wilson discussed beginning her wrestling career in WCW after Kevin Nash reached out to her, her training process, and more.
Wilson’s back issues eventually forced her to request her WWE release in 2008.
Wilson was released from her WWE contract on May 8, 2008, and she subsequently retired.
You can check out the highlights from the podcast below:
On being uncomfortable in training: “The biggest thing that I was trying to dig for was pushing past that fear and looking like I know what I’m doing… I was so shy that I literally just wanted to slink away and hide, so I was getting heat for not being friendly but I just wanted to hide beneath a rock!”
On her and Stacy Kiebler’s training experience at the Power Plant: “We were crying. We felt like we were in car wrecks. And I remember Madusa dropped me on my head on purpose — I didn’t understand how frustrating it was for them.”
