Over/Under going in on the times Michael Landsberg mentions the OTR/Trish relationship. 4.5.

#1 - In the ads leading into the show during PTI

Trish starts off doing Michael's intro, before the opening theme runs.

#2 - Right after that we get the second one

On keeping dignity/poise: She says that respect is most important, as fame and money come later. Michael claims the fans don't chant "Pup-pies" at her. Trish corrects him that it did happen early on, but that was the role she had at the time. Trish thinks she has made it different for her by balancing the sex appeal and the wrestling, by taking bumps. Is she paddling upstream since she won't be the number one bump-taker? She now recognizes as the crowd reacts to her. At Wrestlemania, she was blown away while watching Vince vs. Hogan, because the women got the same reaction, and have the same appeal.

On regrets: No regrets, and she would still bark for Vince at that point in her career, since she knew there would be a payoff - building sympathy for her character.

On Playboy: There's no payoff for it, storyline wise, since so many other women in the WWE have done it.

On "Diva": A woman who is athletic, entertaining, beautiful, strong, sexy and making it in a man's world.

On backstage romance: She has to focus on what she had to do, and it was the same in university as in wrestling. She says she hasn't been hit on in the locker room, because she feels she comes off as a little sister.

(ad break)

They show Trish's first appearance on the show, and Landsberg and Stratus talk about it. #3, although we would be at #10 if I didn't lump everything in this en masse.

On working the crowd: Michael points out how Trish worked the crowd during her first OTR appearance, which was taped outside Skydome.

On growing up: She says 13-14 girls now want to be Trish Stratus. She was a fan growing up, but never thought it would end up like this. She now lives wrestling, and she will continue as long as she can give 100 percent. She says she wants to start a family, and spending time with her eventual children while she is young.

On the aformentioned 100%: She also says that her looks must also be 100%. She says she is perfectly healthy right now, trying to work as safe as she can.

On giving it up: She can't imagine what it would be like until she did.

(ad break - Video of Trish's debut on Heat)

On Canada and Canadians: She thinks she is seen as Canadian celebrity as opposed to a Canadian wrestler. She mentioned being in some sort of Top 30 Canadian women list is in Elle Magazine. She acknowledges the way the Canadians stick together.

On politics: She does very little outside of stating her case.

(ad break)

Landsberg says that Trish hasn't changed since they first met 5 years ago. #4. They then promote the DVD.

They end with the usual name association.

Stacy: Aware of what she brings to the table. (sounded like a very back-handed compliment to these ears)
Miss Elizabeth: Sad, and not so much of an influence. She was watching Randy Savage.
The Rock: Helped her find the balance between wrestling and entertaining.

She came off a little stuck up at times, but then; look at her.

Michael's hustler comment and allusion to Trish having work done were in poor taste.

She looks a little different because she's 5 years older and added about 10-15 pounds for bumping purposes. If she's had any work done, it's probably minor stuff. Although, she's always on the road so it doesn't create much time for work to be done.

I don't think she came off stuck up at all. She just talks a lot and takes a long time to get her point across.

I admire that she's managed to keep a seperation between her professional career and her personal life, which so many wrestlers and people in wrestling seem to lose.

All in all, it'd rank somewhere near the bottom of the one-on-one OTR interviews because there wasn't really anything learned that you didn't already know from any other Trish interview.

Landsberg really overplayed the whole "you'll lose your looks and you're done" type thing like Trish could hit the wall any day now. Ivory's still kicking around at 40ish. Trish isn't even 30 yet. If she wrestles until she's 40, that's a long enough career for any wrestler.

Well, I check out the TSN site, though we obviously don't have the channel. I think Trish sounds more sure of what she can do than ever before. My props to her.

Landsberg is annoying nowadays, hes not trying to get a good interview anymore. He's more in trying to lead people into sound bites in dissing a co-worker. Tried to have her diss other non-wrestling girls(she didn't bite) and old guys like Hogan (She's a Hogan fan, she enjoyed the time he was there and thought he added something. Sorry Landsberg not everyone going to think that Hogan is pure evil).

One question I would have liked was her feeling on Lawler's commentating. And press on that. Unlike Hogan, Jerry Lawler effects her directly... I would have also liked her to do a few more name association.

Fuel I really agree with you on the "Your looks can go any time now" questions. For goodness sake she's just turning 28 in a couple of weeks. IMO she looks prettier now then she ever did. Questions like "Are you worried if your looks go, what will happen!". Even Trish who's the most polite interview ever, even looked somewhat taken aback, like "what's his deal?". He tried save face at the end saying she's as pretty as she was 5 years ago... Again the more interesting question would be something like, are you taking steps now for post wrestling career. Is your current fame and experience, is this something you can use post-WWE.

Her talking about the Vince thing was interesting. She seemed to have a good knowledge of wrestling even back then wanting to know where the storyline was going and what will the pay off be... Trish talking how she has no interest in dating any wrestling dudes does remind me of Christian's line from Raw that Trish is "A prude, who's locked at the knees" LoL

She's a good interview, she's well spoken(even though she talks really fast LoL She called it once in a print interview speaking "Canadian") and pretty smart. She gives credit and acknowledges the other girls saying that it took a team effort for any success one person gets while in the division and also gives props to Non-wrestling divas to help sell magazines and therefore make everyone more money... I didn't find the Stacy comment was a diss, because I think Stacy would say the same thing herself. I feel like Trish, I'm a Stacy fan. Stacy knows what she wants to bring to the table and doesn't necessary want to wrestle. I think that's fine. She's charismatic and cute and is over, she can bring her own assets to the table. I like that more then the half-assed wrestler who doesn't really know what she wants.
