Former WWE superstar Torrie Wilson has recently opened up about her feelings regarding a potential in-ring comeback, and her sentiments are clear: she has "zero desire" to return to the world of professional wrestling. In a candid interview with "Busted Open," Wilson discussed her reasons for not following in the footsteps of fellow WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita, who have made recent comebacks.
Wilson's last singles match in WWE dates back to November 2007 when she faced off against Victoria. Since then, she has made sporadic appearances in various battle royals, but the idea of a full-fledged return to the squared circle doesn't seem to resonate with her.
She explained, "When Trish came back, I watched a lot of that, and I remember texting her a few times. I was like, 'I don't know how you're doing this. Good for you.' But I have zero desire to go back to that." One of the main factors influencing her decision is the physical toll that professional wrestling takes on the body.
To return and prove herself as an athlete, she would have to endure more bumps, practice extensively, and potentially go through the rigorous training at WWE's developmental territory, NXT. Wilson expressed doubts about subjecting her body to such demands, stating, "I don't know if I'm gonna do that to my body."
Torrie's Recent WWE Stints
While Torrie Wilson hasn't had a singles match in WWE for nearly 16 years, she has remained a beloved figure in the wrestling community.
Her most recent WWE appearance was at the 2021 Women's Royal Rumble, where she entered the match at #17 and had a four-minute stint before being eliminated by Shayna Baszler. Prior to that, she participated in a 20-woman battle royal at the 2018 Evolution pay-per-view, where she was eliminated by the duo of Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.
In her most recent WWE involvement, Wilson had the honor of inducting her longtime friend and rival, Stacy Keibler, into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023. This induction showcased the deep connections and relationships that endure within the wrestling world.
As Torrie Wilson continues to make occasional appearances in WWE, her fans may not see her step into the ring as a competitor again, but her contributions to the industry and her enduring popularity remain unquestionable.
For now, she remains content with her current role in the world of professional wrestling, and fans will continue to appreciate her presence in any capacity she chooses.
