Terri Runnels/ Marlena - Part 3

Terri Runnels/ Marlena

Terri competed in a modified Classic Survivor Series 8-Diva Tag Team Match with there only being one fall instead of elimination at the 1999 Survivor Series pay-per-view. She teamed up with former P.M.S. stablemate Jacqueline, Luna, and the WWF Women's Wrestling Champion Ivory in a loss to The Fabulous Moolah, Mae Young, Tori, and Debra. Though she didn't get tagged in or even stand on the ring apron like the other participants, she got her top ripped off by Debra at the conclusion of the match.

In late 1999, Terri staged the "Terri Invitational Tournament" between Edge and Christian and The Hardy Boyz (then known as The New Brood), with the winner receiving her managerial services and the sum of $100,000. The Hardy Boyz won the Tournament, which culminated in a Ladder match at No Mercy (with the prize money suspended above the ring in a bag), and Terri spent the next few months as their manager until she was injured when Bubba Ray Dudley powerbombed her through a table on January 24, 2000. Terri returned on February 27 and cost the Hardy Boyz a match, complaining that they had not visited her while hospitalized. She then became the manager of Edge and Christian, but cost them numerous matches, including a bout for the WWF Tag Team Championships. After she cost Christian a match on an episode of SmackDown!, Edge and Christian dispensed with her services. After Terri mocked the departing tag team with her signature "she-devil" taunt, Edge noticing the gesture on the TitanTron, turned around and speared her.

Terri then began a feud with The Kat because she was jealous of the latter's TV exposure. At WrestleMania 2000, Terri (accompanied by The Fabulous Moolah) defeated The Kat (with Mae Young) in a Catfight. Val Venis was the Special Guest Referee, but was distracted when Mae kissed him in response to Val making out with both Terri and The Kat. This allowed Moolah to pull The Kat out of the ring, and when Val saw her out of the ring, he declared Terri the winner. Post-match, The Kat attacked Terri by stripping her black pants off to expose her thong.
