I consider myself a knowledgeable fan, but sometimes these internet things go right over my head...the most recent of which is the Trish/Lillian thing. It seems everyone here on the board makes reference to Lillian being gay/associated with Trish somehow...even pictures of them together lol -- so what's the deal? Can somebody elaborate what this is all about?
Dammit Parts Unknown you made my inbox is overflow. Actually you didn't (lol)
I heard different stories and speculation and at times by there body language or little stuff WWF does itself gives a little clue.
The story goes that Trish came in and wasn't accepted in the locker room at all. Because she didn't come from a wrestling background and all the other wrestling girls either came from a wrestling background or have spouses in the Fed... So she hung out with another girl who really wasn't that popular backstage Lilian (can't relate to the wrestlers). They became best friends and always hanging out. Even now that Trish has become more respected backstage by the other girls. Trish still travels with only Lilian and still her best friend and Lilian herself called Trish "her female soulmate."
I read this part on a website once that had real WWE sex stories, which all the other stories are true (steph/ h/ chyna, benoit/woman, chasity's past). Not direct quote. Mid 2000 early on of Trish & Lil career. Trish & Lilian were acting a bit more then friends and holding hands and stuff in semi-public place and a fan saw it and posted it up and Vince got really pissed. "He didn't like someone he's portraying as a sex symbol doing that" He was going to fire Lilian until Linda calmed this down and both Trish/Lil decided to break it off and not travel with each other... Note that's probably an old story because this summer Trish on Much Music said Lilian is her travel partner.
Plus WWF themselves have a lot of fun with this. Remember Rock out of no where asking Lilian if she liked pie and she innocently said "yeah sure sometimes" Rock looks at her and smiles "Rock thought so". Plus the Raw after WrestleMania 2001 Steph pushed Lilian into Trish which is really nothing but she never gets involved in matches that looked like another *nudge, nudge* thing WWE did... And like ChuckC says Lil has this huge smile everytime Trish comes out and just last week when Trish thought the cameras were on the her opponent entering the arena (but were on Trish) she turned her head and winked at Lil and then had a pretty silly smirk on her face like she did something evil. (hehe)
I don't mean to "out" them or anything, they probably are just real cool friends. But when I see those two I just sense something =)... Then again Pool could be right over active imagination.
Don't really know if going into detail here is the right place because we all know a wrestling messageboard is no place for wild speculation and innuendo
Lillian is married to a man who is currently employed in the New York city area. She made a vague reference to him having a meeting scheduled at the World Trade Center on September 11th and sleeping in that morning on a show last year.

Doesn't matter how beautiful his wife is. Fact is Shannon looks like a 12 year old. Even compared to Rey..Why this would make him a good example for being gay is beyond me..Must be because he knows Jeff *grin*
Seriously, you can tell Trish and Lilian like eachother, and it's not all that tough to imagine something more than that.
The fact that some site was right about H/Steph/Chyna doesn't mean they are right all the time (especially since they might write that first story in hinesight?) and thus although I like to believe it, I don't think it's true..
But let's face it..Mostly due to NetHackSlasher all of us pay extra attention when these two ladies are seen together
Personally, I felt there was nothing too bad with Raw. I'm going to give let McMahon being on the show slide, because they just wanted to do that April Fool's thing, and personally it did make me laugh. As for the overall show, I thought it worked.
