The following is an excerpt from a new Slam! Wrestling article, featuring comments from former WWE Diva Trish Stratus about WWE "Tough Enough."
It's similar to how she has been able to help the players of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Argonauts, and even the prospects on WWE's reality show Tough Enough where she was a coach.
"I warned everyone," she laughed, "and told them that, 'Just so you know, what made me a better performer was my yoga, so I'm going to be bringing yoga to the show.' The kids loved it. It was neat to see a bunch of kids who wanted to be fighters embracing the integration of yoga into it. When I told them how it helped me as a performer and as an athlete, it really opened their eyes to it — and a lot of them are still doing it."
She welcomes the chance to do another season, if the opportunity presented itself. At this point, there have only been discussions about doing another one, but with the new WWE Network debuting next year, she is hopeful that it will return, and she with it.
"Being a coach on Tough Enough was a perfect role for me to come back in. It fit perfectly with my schedule, too — we were out filming in California for about two months. It was perfect and to parlay some of the knowledge and experience that I'd gained over the years and help these young kids who are pursuing their dreams, it was really cool."
