-- Trish Stratus recently spoke with The Rack to discuss her new film, Bounty Hunters. During the interview, she spoke about transitioning from being in the ring to being a trainer on Tough Enough. "It was the perfect role for me actually," said Stratus. "At that point I had been retired for a couple of years and I got the call that I would be with Steve(Austin), Bill(DeMott) and Booker and to me it was a great opportunity for me to take my experiences that I gained as a performer and bring it to these news kids that were super passionate about what they are going to do. I kinda said to them that I am going to bring some Yoga to this, if you are cool with that, as I knew for me personally especially later on in my career, it was something that made me a better performer both physically and mentally."
