Terri Runnels Talks Attitude Era, Wrestling in T&A Matches, Goldust & More

Former Diva Terri Runnels recently took part in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything”, discussing a number of topics about her time with the WWE.

Her stable PMS: “HATED the name PMS, HATED, HATED that cheap angle!!! That was a Vince Russo special that I begged him to change…Vince McMahon sided with Russo on that one! CHEAP and not effective!”

Real life romances between Superstars and Divas: “Can’t tell you now but it certainly seems like it is occurring some more now than in the ATTITUDE ERA! Lots of KayFabe Lovin back in the day!”

Her reaction to winning the Hardcore Title: “‘This is pretty funny!’ and…’Are you serious I have to win it in a dress?'”

Did the WWE want her to go topless on television?: “I showed what I wanted to where my boobs were concerned. I enjoyed the introduction and perfection of the underboob! Always made some countries a little nervous. :D”

Backstage drama between the Divas: “Geez…so glad the catty ones left in the early days just when the Divas were becoming a “thing”! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Personally it just makes a girl look “low-rent” to behave in such a petty, insecure way! Just say Hell No! :D”

Her “She-Devil” moniker: “Jim Ross called me a SheDevil when I turned on the Hardy Boys…Jerry Lawler added the “horny little”…a part I was never particularly fond of…like how did he know!?! :D”

Being put through a table by the Dudley Boyz: “LOVED being the first woman to be put through the table with the Dudleys. Vince was VERY nervous and threatened Bubba if he hurt me! I asked for the table NOT to be gimmicked…and my only regret is that Bubba was scared he would hurt me and he protected me too much! I wanted more of that table! TRUE!”

Receiving Rikishi’s “stinkface”: “Funny story…Junior said “Girl, I am extra fresh and clean for you!”…and so he was! Who woulda thunk it right!?! If you ever really pay attention…most people don’t “take” his finish…I saw it as a respect thing and took it as best I could. He could have made it brutal for me and didn’t…so happy we have been good friends for over 25 years! We go way back to NWA WCW days at Center Stage in ATL…them wuz tha dayz! :D”

Her current relationship with Goldust: “Always massive respect and love based on the fact that we have a daughter together. Sometimes I wish his current wife would be comfortable in the fact that he is all hers where the husband wife thing is concerned. We have co-parented and communicated since 1999 w/o any major troubles. I think there might be a bit of a short leash there. That is his choice and he has to live with it. What matters is that we communicate for Dakota. We used to have a lot more fun and laughs though…I have to say that is a bit disappointing now that I think of it. :(”

Taking part in T&A matches: “It was a part of my job. It didn’t make it easy on me that I had to fly home and chat with the mom’s at Dakota’s private school the day after having one of THOSE matches the night before! But in the big scheme of things…it’s all small stuff!”
