On the December 16 edition of WWE RAW , Tori complained to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon about Kane, by now feuding with his former tag team partner X-Pac (an ally of Triple H), being placed in a Handicap match. Stephanie retorted by challenging Tori to a match that night, which she accepted. However, Stephanie replaced herself with X-Pac, who defeated Tori with ease as Kane was ambushed backstage by the Mean Street Posse. Kane received a shot at the WWF Championship on December 20 but with the stipulation that, if he lost to incumbent Big Show, Tori would have to spend the Christmas weekend with X-Pac. Kane lost after the New Age Outlaws distracted him. However, Tori insisted upon her return that X-Pac had been a perfect gentleman.
Around the same time, Tori began to become paranoid, and grew hysterical after Test hugged her. Kane promptly destroyed Test in the ring, believing Tori's claims that he had harassed her. Other wrestlers began to exploit Tori's neuroticism, using it to unleash Kane on their enemies. This included Mankind, who manipulated the duo into attacking a fake-Mankind hired by Triple H.
Kane continued to feud with X-Pac, and on January 27 he was ambushed in the ring by the McMahon-Helmsley Faction (X-Pac's allies). After tying Kane up, X-Pac revealed that Tori was now with him. Tori turned heel, joining the faction and accompanying X-Pac and his partner Road Dogg to the ring. She helped X-Pac defeat Kane at No Way Out, but he was beaten by Kane in their last match at WrestleMania 2000. Tori continued to help X-Pac and Road Dogg, as well as helping Stephanie McMahon retain the Women's Championship in a match with Lita. The faction began feuding with the Dudley Boyz, and Tori used a Flying Splash to drive Bubba Ray Dudley through a table on June 12. Bubba Ray gained revenge at King of the Ring, where he powerbombed Tori through a table.
Poch was sidelined with a torn labrum on June 24. She underwent surgery with Dr. James Andrews. On October 30, Tori returned for one night, confronting and slapping X-Pac for failing to protect her.
Poch returned in January 2001 as The Black Ninja, a masked, anonymous figure wearing a black bodysuit who helped Raven retain the Hardcore Championship, attacking his opponents and acting as a getaway driver. Raven's Hardcore title feud with Crash Holly, led to a feud between The Ninja and Crash's onscreen cousin Molly Holly. Holly finally unmasked the ninja on the March 11 episode of Sunday Night HEAT, revealing her to be Tori. Subsequently, Poch was removed from television.
After working as a trainer on WWF Tough Enough throughout the summer of 2001, Poch was released by the WWF in September 2001. At the time, she made accusations about Scott Levy, claiming he had verbally abused her. WWF road agent Gerald Brisco and Executive Vice President of Talent Relations Jim Ross claimed, however, that these allegations were not true.
She subsequently retired from wrestling to concentrate on her career as a yogini.
Hmmmm...Trish opened a Yoga Studio when she quit.....

Terri Poch was born August 20, 1967 in Portland, Oregon. She is an American bodybuilder and former pro wrestler, best known for her appearances with the WWF as Tori.
Terri made her pro wrestling debut in 1988 as Taylor Made, a valet for Scotty the Body in Portland's Pacific Northwest Wrestling. She joined the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association in 1990 as Terri Power, and on February 23, 1992 at Super Ladies Showdown in Rochester, Minnesota in the Mayo Civic Center she defeated Lady X for the LPWA Championship. She was never defeated for the title, as the LPWA ceased operations shortly after her victory. She also teamed with Reggie Bennett during their mutual stint with the short-lived organization.
In the summer of 1992, Poch began wrestling for All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling. She competed in the Japan Grand Prix, finishing ninth, and the Fuji Network Tag Team Tournament, with Kyoko Inoue as her partner. She remained in Japan until 1993, when she took a hiatus from wrestling.
WWF hired her in the autumn of 1998. She debuted on the December 28 episode of WWE RAW is WAR entering the ring before a match to hand Sable a yellow rose. She continued in becoming an obsessed fan over the next few weeks, constantly at ringside during Sable's matches. At the Royal Rumble, she helped Sable defeat Luna Vachon in a Strap match. She later introduced herself as Tori and tried to gain the respect of Sable, who continually degraded and humiliated her. This led to Tori challenging Sable to a match for the Women's Championship at WrestleMania XV. Tori was defeated following interference from Sable's debuting bodyguard, Nicole Bass.
Tori feuded with Jacqueline in April and May 1999 and then began pursuing Ivory's Women's Championship in July. After Ivory defeated Tori at SummerSlam, their feud became more and more heated, leading to the first ever WWF women's Hardcore match on the September 6, 1999 edition of RAW . Ivory retained her title once more in a match which involved Tori having a mirror smashed over her head and being burnt with an iron. On September 26, Tori attempted to gain a measure of retribution by attacking Ivory during a match, but instead was pushed in a crate by Ivory.
Tori returned in November, teaming with Mae Young, The Fabulous Moolah, and Debra to defeat Ivory, Luna, Terri Runnels, and Jacqueline at Survivor Series. She also became the girlfriend of Kane. This led to a short feud between Kane and Viscera after Viscera repeatedly made unwelcome advances toward Tori.

Terri invited The Kat (Stacy Carter) to a beauty salon saying she was sorry for cheating on the match. However, Terri spiked The Kat's drink and dyed and cut her hair while she was unconscious. The feud would continue to an Arm Wrestling Match at Insurrextion 2000. Carter was victorious, but after the match, Terri pulled The Kat's top off, exposing her breasts. Instead of being disgusted or embarrassed, Carter allowed the crowd to see her breasts. In June 2000, Terri formed an alliance with Dean Malenko, and on June 6 on RAW, Malenko faced Jerry Lawler (representing The Kat) in a "Over the Top, Off with the Top" Match. Though Malenko lost, Terri was covered up by Steven Richards before she could strip topless. The feud resurfaced in a match between Terri and Perry Saturn vs The Kat and Al Snow where Terri and Perry emerged victorious at SummerSlam 2000,later then Terri and The Kat had a backstage fight before their match involving Perry Saturn on Terri´s side and Rikishi on The Kat´s side,although Terri and Perry Saturn won Rikishi left Perry Saturn nearly unconscious and Stinkfaced Terri,one show later Terri took revenge on The Kat by Stinkfacing her. This resulted on an official Stinkface match between Terri and the Kat where The Kat won by stinkfacing Terri.Both ladies continued their feud in match between Terri, Perry Saturn, and D´lo Brown vs The Kat, Dean Malenko and The Godfather where Terri´s team resulted victorious, a match between Terri and the Fabulous Moolah vs. The Kat and Mae Young where they lost, and many more matches.
Terri became the onscreen girlfriend and manager of Perry Saturn and joined The Radicalz. The partnership lasted until Saturn, concussed by a double powerbomb delivered by The Acolytes, opted to continue seeing "Moppy" (a mop he believed was alive) when Terri told him to get rid of the mop or she would leave him. Terri then became the manager of wrestler Raven and joined The Alliance in order to enact revenge upon Saturn, a goal she achieved when Raven stole the mop and fed it into a woodchipper.
In late-2001, Terri replaced Trish Stratus as the host of the WWE recap program "Excess" after Stratus became a full-time wrestler. She briefly feuded with Stratus, resulting in a wet T-shirt contest between the two on RAW, which was interrupted by Jazz. Runnels held the role until the program was canceled and she then became a backstage interviewer. She wrestled the occasional match a notorious one being her vs. Trish Stratus on a lingerie match for the Women´s Championship but she lost.and had brief feuds with Molly Holly and Stacy Keibler. Terri defeated Keibler in the first ever Lingerie Pillow Fight, which concluded with a bitter Keibler tarring and feathering Terri afterward. On May 27, 2002, she briefly held the perpetually contested Hardcore Title when she pinned a dazed Steven Richards, though he immediately pinned her to regain the title. She also began an onscreen romance with Kane which was abandoned when Kane turned heel in June 2003. Terri declined to train as a full-time wrestler, preferring to act as a manager if possible. In March of 2004, Runnels requested and was granted her release from the WWE, parting on good terms.
It was reported in April 2008 that Terri will be making her comeback to wrestling after a 4 year absence. She is taking bookings through the talent booking company Integrity Bookings and also through Highspots.com.
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.
Terri debuted in the WWF at the 1996 Royal Rumble as Marlena. Terri came up with the name and also had to petition Vince to allow her to smoke the cigars she wanted to bring to the ring. Terri loved smoking cigars in her private time and thought that would be perfect for the androgynous character that she thought of to compliment her husband's character "Goldust". Terri thought of the Marlena character one day while she was in her tanning bed. The motivation for the Marlena character was the Bob Mackie Barbie doll which looked like a Sun Goddess. The cigar-smoking manager and wife of her real-life husband Dustin Runnels, then packaged as the eccentric, cross-dressing, bisexual wrestler Goldust.
Marlena was attacked by Chyna twice, the first time Chyna choked Terri from behind while in a match between Goldust and HHH, the second time was after Marlena slapped HHH because he Pedigreed Goldust, Chyna sneaked up behind Marlena and shook her like a rag doll, causing her to injure her ribs, Marlena then had an arm wrestling match with the conceited Sunny, where Marlena was close to winning but Sunny threw a bag of sand at her face, so no one really won.Terri managed Goldust until November 3, 1997, when he revealed his new valet, Luna Vachon. Terri disappeared from TV, re-emerging in 1998 as the manager and on-screen girlfriend of Val Venis. Venis ended their relationship when Terri announced that she was pregnant saying that she could not be expecting a baby from him due to the fact that he had a vasectomy. In November 1998, the jilted Terri formed the stable "Pretty Mean Sisters" (P.M.S.) with Jacqueline and Ryan Shamrock, both of whom also had reason to resent men,although Ryan Shamrock joined a few months after Terri and Jacqueline did, when Terri and Jacqueline first joined they both low blowed their male counterparts and had a few matches with some divas such as Ivory and Tori where Terri would usually act as a manager instead of actually wrestling. In a match between Jacqueline and Ivory, Terri went up to the ring and burned Ivory in the face with a cigar causing Jacqueline to pin Ivory. Two shows later Ivory called out Terri to the ring to fight hand-to-hand and Terri came out with Jacqueline but on the way to the ring Terri told Jacqueline that she was fine and that she could take on Ivory by herself,Jacqueline hesitated but agreed, but almost immediately after Terri stepped into the ring, she was intimidated by Ivory and tried to run away, but Ivory grabbed her and ripped off her T-shirt. In a subsequent angle, D'Lo Brown accidentally knocked Terri from the ring apron to the floor during a match, and she claimed to have suffered a miscarriage. This was later found to be untrue, as was the entire pregnancy, but in the meantime Terri used the incident to exert control over D'Lo, who became a virtual servant to P.M.S. The stable eventually grew to encompass Meat, a male wrestler who the ladies constantly abused. P.M.S. gradually drifted apart, and the stable finally split in August 1999.
Terri Lynne Boatright Runnels was born October 5, 1966 in Live Oak, Florida. She is a former WCW and WWE professional wrestling manager, and TV host. She is best known for her eight-year career with WWE, and as the former wife of Dustin Runnels ( Goldust) .

During this time, Tammy appeared at the New Jersey-based NWA Cyberspace promotion. Soon after Sytch's departure from NWA Cyberspace, the New Jersey-based National Wrestling Superstars (NWS) became her new primary wrestling promotion. Tammy appeared on a few of the promotion's shows in the summer, and on June 3, 2006, she managed Lex Luger to victory over Johnny Candido. Prior to the match, a presentation was held from The Manasquan Elks Lodge to the Chris Candido Memorial Fund. The Elks Lodge donated $500 to the fund, with the money being used towards a scholarship for a Manasquan High School student. In spite of the prior ruling, Tammy returned to NWA Shockwave (formerly NWA Cyberspace) in 2006 as a featured headliner. On December 1, 2006, she was appointed the new commissioner of NWA Shockwave. Immediately following this announcement, Commissioner Sytch declared all NWA SW championship titles vacant and informed fans that a new Heavyweight and Internet champion would be crowned on January 13. The promotion temporarily stopped promoting shows due to the death of NWA Shockwave owner Billy Firehawk in July 2006.
Tammy won her first championship belt on December 22, 2007 at a Women Superstars Uncensored show in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey. She defeated Alicia to become the new WSU Champion. Sytch made an appearance on the 15th Anniversary WWE Raw show on December 10, 2007 in a segment with Vince, Stephanie and Shane McMahon.

Upon the conclusion of the match, Lacey verbally assaulted Sytch and accused her of denigrating women's roles in professional wrestling, which supposedly resulted in women's wrestlers not being taken seriously in the industry. She also threatened to assault her, but Haze made the save on Sytch's behalf. Tammy made a few more appearances for ROH in 2008, where she repeatedly offered her services to Austin Aries but was turned down. On the April 12 ROH show, Larry Sweeney announced that he had opened a "Diva School" and invited Tammy Sytch to be the "trainer", an offer she claimed she would consider.

Meanwhile, Sytch formed a business relationship with Missy Hyatt, and the two created the website Wrestling Vixxxens in July 2001. Along with a few other women loosely affiliated with wrestling at the time, they posed for the website and charged people to view the pictures. In the spring of 2003, Sytch & Candido moved to Puerto Rico and were set to work for Victor Quinones' International Wrestling Association promotion. However, Sabu convinced them to work for Carlos Colon's rival World Wrestling Council promotion instead. After six months, the couple quit the promotion and headed back to the States. Upon their return to the States, both Sytch and Candido briefly lived with former ECW wrestler Hack Myers in his home in Florida.

They were interrupted by Danny Doring and Roadkill, but 911 cleared them out of the ring. 911 then proceeded to pick up Sytch and place her on his shoulder, but 911's knee buckled and they both toppled to the canvas. Sytch proceeded to laugh off the incident.
