Former WWE Divas Speak On WWE Tough Enough & More
Diva-Dirt.com sent in the following quotes from Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson and Lilian Garcia’s internet video show:
Lilian Garcia on where the Tough Enough “After Show” idea came from: “Actually, Candice got approached and she was so nice that she brought Torrie and I on. The three of us had been talking about trying to do something together […] it became the perfect opportunity to do something. It was actually Torrie… I was together with her in Miami and we’re sitting there trying to figure out what to call ourselves. I’ll never forget Torrie just sitting there and going ‘T… Taa… TLC!’ and I’m telling you, when that revelation came about, it was so cool. So it’s been fun to work together.”
Torrie Wilson on whether the female Tough Enough contestants were given a fair advantage on the show: “I think they got a fair shake but it’s definitely tougher on the women than the men. I hate to admit it but men are stronger than women physically, and it’s a lot more tolling as we saw. It would be great if they had two separate shows – Tough Enough for a woman, and Tough Enough for a guy. But it is what it is and they got a great opportunity to be seen by everyone at the WWE and I’m sure that we’ll be seeing some of those women again.”
Candice Michelle on Michelle McCool’s interview on the After Show where she discussed cattiness in the locker room from other Divas due to her success. Did Torrie and Candice experience that too? “Absolutely. I wasn’t here for that interview but I did get a chance to watch it. The closer you get to the top, the more people — it’s like a duck just pecking at you. They just wanna peck at you and make you fall back to the bottom. There’s only one spot up there, so it’s inevitable. Most of the girls are absolutely amazing and you get support and help. It takes to two dance and two to tango in that ring, but not everyone has that philosophy.”
