WWE.com has posted 2 new interviews with former WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres and the returning Tyson Kidd earlier today.
In Eve’s interview, she talks about what she has been up to since leaving WWE earlier this year and getting into women’s self defense, telling a story about an incident in 2007.
When I first started traveling with WWE [in 2007], I had just won the Diva Search and I didn’t really have any riding partners yet. So, I was making one of the loops by myself. I was somewhere in the Northeast and, just like we always do, I had to stop at a gas station to get some water and snacks, and fill up on gas. I walked in, and there were three guys in there that immediately started heckling me, harassing me and telling me to go with them. They were just kind of trying to poke fun or whatever. I ignored them, and they just progressively got angrier and angrier. It got to the point where they were yelling obscenities at me and calling me all kinds of names. They were threatening me. I looked at the guy at the checkout desk, and he didn’t know what to do. I didn’t buy my stuff. I threw it down on the counter and I got out of there. They followed me out, still yelling at me. I think they felt that I was really terrified, and I think they fed off that. I got into my car, locked the door and I took off. I pulled over, I was shaking. I couldn’t believe that had just happened. It’s one of the first times I realized that even though I’m a woman who’s in shape, who has an education and a good job, any man that wants to end that for me or hurt me in some way can do that. Unfortunately, men are just stronger than women.
