Torrie Wilson Introduction

Torrie Wilson (born July 24, 1975) is an American professional wrestler, fitness competitor and model currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) working on its SmackDown! brand.

As a fitness competitor, Wilson won the Miss Galaxy competition in 1998. Shortly after, she was hired by World Championship Wrestling, where she was employed from 1999 until 2001. In 2001, she began appearing on World Wrestling Federation (WWF) television as part of The Invasion storyline. Her most high profile storyline took place in 2003 when she feuded with Dawn Marie. Wilson has also been a part of the all-female stable known as Vince's Devils, which ended its run in 2006.

Aside from wrestling, Wilson has been on the cover of several magazines, including FHM and Playboy, which she posed for twice.

Wilson was born in Boise, Idaho. She was painfully shy growing up. but she quickly found friends in her small town. She found her niche in many school activities, including cheerleading and dance, and was very competitive in track and field.

During her sophomore year of high school, after Wilson's interest in modeling grew more serious, her mother urged her to pursue it. They visited an agency and were informed that Torrie would have to lose weight to actually be considered for jobs. In the process of losing weight, she began a bout with anorexia and then bulimia that lasted from ages fourteen to twenty.

After recovering from the disorder, Wilson became involved in fitness. She began eating six meals a day and working out. She placed third in her first competition. She later won the Miss Galaxy competition in 1998. She then spent some time on the Extreme Fitness Team.

In 1998, Wilson moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. She began acting classes and was introduced to an agent who helped her gain a few jobs.

Wilson's start in wrestling came when she attended a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) show with her boyfriend in 1999. After going backstage, she was asked to walk out to the ring with Scott Steiner. Later, Kevin Nash expressed an interest in doing a storyline with her. She debuted under the name "Samantha", who was brought in by the nWo to seduce David Flair into turning on his father, Ric Flair. They appeared together on February 21, when Wilson slapped Ric Flair, and David zapped him with a taser. At the 1999 Bash at the Beach, Wilson acted as a valet for Flair as he captured the WCW United States Championship from Dean Malenko.

Although she left WCW television afterwards, she returned in the fall of 1999 under her real name. Wilson began managing Billy Kidman and his Filthy Animals teammates. As a result, she found herself involved in the Animals continuing feud with The Revolution. In November, Wilson and Eddie Guerrero were shown flirting on the "Kidcam,"a hidden camera segment, which led to a feud between Kidman and Guerrero. Following this, Wilson disappeared from television. Wilson, however, returned on the January 19, 2000, and in April 2000, Kidman and Wilson joined a stable known as the New Blood, making them both heels. Kidman soon became jealous of the attention Torrie began to give to fellow New Blood member Horace Hogan. In June, Wilson gave Kidman a low blow at the Great American Bash, causing him to lose to Horace’s uncle, Hulk Hogan.

Torrie was taken off of television following the encounter, reappearing at July's Bash at the Beach during a match between Shane Douglas and Buff Bagwell. After the match, Torrie and Douglas left together, which led to a feud between Kidman and Douglas. At September's Fall Brawl, Wilson and Douglas defeated Kidman and Madusa in a mixed tag team scaffold match. Wilson was released from her contract in December 2001.

The Invasion (2001)

Torrie Wilson made her WWF TV debut on the June 28, 2001 episode of SmackDown! as part of The Alliance during the Invasion angle in 2001. In her first storyline with the company, she portrayed Vince McMahon's latest affair. She also regularly teamed with fellow WCW performer Stacy Keibler. The two of them made their wrestling debuts in WWF in a Bra and Panties match against Lita and Trish Stratus at the WWF Invasion pay-per-view, which Trish and Lita won. The following night on RAW, Torrie defeated Stratus in a Paddle on a Pole match. Despite her relative lack of in-ring experience, Wilson, alongside Keibler and Ivory, regularly feuded with the WWE Divas, as well as interfering in matches on behalf of other wrestlers in The Alliance. She turned face during the Invasion storyline, when her character began a kayfabe romance with Tajiri. This new romance caused Stacy Keibler to turn on Wilson, and as a result, Wilson defected to the WWF. Wilson defeated Keibler in a lingerie match at No Mercy.

Tajiri and Dawn Marie (2002–2003)

When the first ever brand separation of the WWE roster took place in April 2002, Wilson was drafted to SmackDown!. Soon after this, Tajiri became very jealous of the attention that Torrie received from other men, so he forced her to wear a geisha outfit, and he also appeared to mistreat her in matches. Torrie finally tired of this, during Tajiri's match against The Hurricane, she got onto the announce table and stripped off her clothing. The distraction allowed The Hurricane to pick up the win.

Wilson's most high profile storyline during her first few years with the company was in 2003 when she feuded with Dawn Marie. In the angle, Dawn Marie attempted to marry Wilson's real-life father Al Wilson. Dawn also revealed that she had developed feelings for Torrie, and the two shared an on-screen kiss. Dawn even offered to cancel the wedding if Torrie would go to a hotel with her for the night. Despite this, as part of the storyline, Dawn developed feelings for Al and the two got married on an episode of SmackDown! in the underwear. Al then, in storyline, died from a heart attack after having rigorous sex numerous times in succession on their honeymoon. In response, Wilson defeated Dawn at No Mercy 2002 in October. She defeated Dawn Marie again at the Royal Rumble 2003 in the first ever Stepmother vs. Stepdaughter match. The feud lasted approximately nine months.

In May 2003, Wilson appeared in a pictorial and on the cover of Playboy. A few months earlier, when her pictorial was announced, a short storyline feud with Nidia developed, with the latter being jealous of the fact that Wilson was picked for the cover and spread in the magazine. In weekly vignettes aired on SmackDown!, both Nidia and her on-screen boyfriend Jamie Noble made trips to The Playboy Mansion to complain to Hugh Hefner about his picking Wilson over Nidia.

Soon after, on an April 2003 episode of SmackDown! during a segment labeled as Torrie's Playboy Coming Out Party former diva and Playboy centerfold Sable made her return to WWE after a three year absence. This began a storyline between the two women where for weeks, Sable played mind games with Wilson, being friendly one moment and unfriendly the next. This all led up to a bikini contest between the two at Judgment Day, which Wilson won. After the contest, Wilson kissed the former Women's Champion Sable on the lips, showing her that there was "no hard feelings" due to Torrie's win over the WWE veteran. Continuing her feud with Noble and Nidia from earlier in the year, Wilson managed Billy Gunn upon his WWE return in the summer of 2003. The feud came to an end after Nidia and Noble both turned face and sided with Gunn and Wilson. After the formation of this alliance, Torrie, Nidia, and Dawn Marie feuded with Shaniqua for a short period of time, which led to Shaniqua squashing Wilson and Nidia in a handicap match.

Torrie teamed with Sable in March 2004 to feud with RAW divas Stacy Keibler and Miss Jackie. The feud centered around the latter duo's storyline jealously of Wilson and Sable's Playboy cover status, as well as their recently being named cover girls yet again, as the two divas were announced to be featured together in an upcoming Playboy March 2004 issue. After weeks of rivalry, Wilson and Sable defeated Stacy Keibler and Miss Jackie in a Playboy Evening Gown match at WrestleMania XX. Later in the year, Wilson engaged in a short feud with Sable, who defeated her at the Great American Bash.

In November 2004, Wilson began feuding with Hiroko. On February 10, 2005 on a special edition of SmackDown! (recorded on February 4 in Saitama, Japan), Torrie defeated Hiroko in a kimono match.

Vince's Devils (2005–2006)

It was revealed on August 22, 2005 that Torrie and Candice Michelle had been traded to RAW in the 2005 draft lottery. Torrie turned heel by attacking Ashley Massaro. Torrie and Candice's feud with Massaro continued over the next couple weeks, as the duo, along with their enforcer Victoria, made things difficult for Massaro. Massaro evened the score on the September 12, 2005 edition of RAW when she brought out the returning Trish Stratus, and the duo proceeded to attack the heels. This led to a tag match at Unforgiven 2005, where the team of Stratus and Massaro defeated Wilson and Victoria. The feud continued into WWE Homecoming, where Stratus and Ashley Massaro defeated Torrie, Candice, and Victoria in the first ever three on two Bra and Panties match by stripping all three of their opponents.

Wilson was absent from WWE television for quite some time after this, leading to rumors and false reports that she had been released from WWE. In actuality, she had taken a leave of absence to tend to some "personal issues". Wilson was surprised by the rumors after some media personnel offered to help her find work. WWE issued a statement on their website, on which Torrie also commented, denouncing the rumors. In the statement she joked she had to "call the WWE office and ask them if they forgot to fire me."

On November 28, Wilson made her return to RAW, where she, Candice Michelle and Victoria faced off against the team of Trish Stratus, Ashley, and their new ally Mickie James. Vince McMahon soon begin referring to the team of Torrie Wilson, Victoria, and Candice Michelle as "Vince's Devils."

Vince's Devils was a short-lived alliance, as Torrie Wilson made a turn to a face diva once again after Candice Michelle and Victoria turned on her. The feud between Candice Michelle and Wilson was a lengthy one that led to a match in which Playboy's newest cover girl, Candice Michelle, faced off against Wilson at WrestleMania 22 in a Playboy Pillow Fight. Wilson won the match, but the feud still continued on-and-off for some time. On the June 12, 2006 edition of RAW, Torrie defeated Candice in the first ever "Wet & Wild match," a wrestling match involving water balloons and squirt guns, in which the winner of the match would be on the cover of the WWE 2006 Summer Special magazine.

Torrie also made a special appearance on WWE's ECW brand on August 22, 2006 representing RAW in a bikini contest against ECW Diva Kelly Kelly. However, no winner was decided, and in a six-person mixed tag match began pitting Torrie Wilson, Tommy Dreamer, and The Sandman against the team of Kelly Kelly, Mike Knox, and Test, Torrie's team was victorious.

In the final months of 2006, Torrie entered into an on-screen relationship with Carlito. During this time, Ric Flair took an interest in Carlito, and Torrie accompanied the duo in a series of tag matches. In May 2007, however, Carlito turned on Flair and dumped Torrie when he turned heel. The storyline came to a halt when on the June 11 edition of RAW, Wilson was drafted from RAW to SmackDown! as part of the 2007 WWE Draft.

On the September 28 edition of SmackDown!, she was attacked in the ring by the debuting Krissy Vaine, but the feud was prematurely dropped when Vaine left the company.

Wilson admits to not watching wrestling when she was younger, but claims that since she became involved in the industry, she has become a fan of Hulk Hogan.

While working for WWE, Wilson is on the road for up to 300 days per year. Wilson has a maltese named Chloe, who travels with her. While on the road, Wilson works out at least four days a week. Usually, her workout consists of an hour of cardio and a half-hour of lifting weights.

Wilson also has a close friendship with Stacy Keibler. At one point, they were roommates in Los Angeles.

After being together for four years, Wilson married Peter Gruner (known on-screen as Billy Kidman) on July 11, 2003. They lived together in Tampa, Florida when not traveling. In 2006, however, she filed for divorce.

In September 2007, Wilson opened her official clothing line "Officially Jaded", alongside Nick Mitchell. She will be opening a store in Texas in the near future.

Aside from Playboy, Wilson has also graced the cover of several other magazines, including the September 2006 cover of FHM magazine.

Wilson was also number forty-three on FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World list in 2007. She has also been on AskMen.com's list of the Most Desirable Women in the World twice: she was number twenty-two in 2006 and number sixty-five in 2007.

In April 2007, Wilson, along with Ashley Massaro, Kelly Kelly, Brooke, Layla El, and Maryse, filmed Timbaland's music video "Throw It On Me". Also in 2007, Wilson made a special appearance, along with Mick Foley, at the Special Olympics World Games in Shanghai.

In May 2008, she announced that she was leaving the wrestling business due to persisting back problems, which could be attributed to her huge boobs.
