Torrie Wilson made a successful foray from the world of fitness competition to professional
wrestling in 1999, when she joined World Championship Wrestling and stayed there until the
promotion would shut shop. Battling the shyness that she’d fought as a child, Wilson was part of
some of the boldest wrestling segments ever.
Torrie Wilson came to WWE as part of the Invasion angle, and would team up with Stacy Keibler to
take on Trish Stratus and Lita at the time. Perhaps her best remembered angle is when she feuded
with Dawn Marie, who’d seduced Torrie Wilson’s real life father in storyline- Al.
Torrie Wilson would be a part of various storylines during her time in WWE. She was the on-screen
manager of Billy Gunn, feuded with Sable, Nidia and Stacy Keibler among others, and had romantic
segments with Tajiri and Carlito.
Torrie Wilson retired from professional wrestling in 2008, but has since made a variety of
appearances for WWE. In 2018 alone, she was part of RAW 25, the first ever women’s Royal Rumble
match as well as Evolution, the first women’s pay-per-view.
After stepping away from the ring, Torrie Wilson became a web-based fitness trainer and blogger,
and has managed to stay in great shape.
Torrie Wilson has certainly had quite a career for someone that once said that she did not enjoy
watching wrestling when she was younger.
While wrestling may have stepped away from the gimmick matches of Torrie Wilson’s era, she
remains an invaluable part of WWE history.
