The gorgeous six-time WWE champ explains how to kick ass in the ring
or at your local dive bar at three in the morning.
Maxim, Apr 2006
Anything can be used to hurt someone; you just need to be creative. You can take your shirt off, twist it up, and use it to strangle someoneor just throw it in their face to distract them. Take off your belt and use it like a whip. Throw a shoe if you can. I actually lost a match because I got hit with a shoe. Its no fun.
Avoid Unnecessary Pain
Most people dont duck all the way.
You want to make sure you actually avoid the punch.
Youll end up getting hit in the face if you dont go down far enough. My signature move, the MaTrish, is a full backbend that I use to get out of the way. Then I stand up and blast the girl with a roundhouse called the chick kick.
Kick Like a Girl
Most guys probably cant do a backbend, but once they duck, theyre in perfect positionright in that lower areafor a shot to their opponents balls. Id call it a dick kick, since, technically, guys really cant do a chick kick.
Hit the Right Head
Avoid the top of the head. I have a missing knuckle from when I punched a girl on the back of the head. The skull is really thick, so its a bad place to go. Instead, aim for the gut, or just go straight to the balls. All guys can relate to that, right?
Know When to Be Gentle
If youre going at it with a friend or someone you dont really want to hurt, just do a simple takedown to diffuse the situation. So if youre standing face-to-face, kick your right leg out in front of you and sweep it through the back of his legs. Hell fall over and land on his ass, and you can tell him to chill the hell out.
Start a Tickle Fight
Some wrestling moves do translate to the bedroom. You can do the pile driver; just dont do it vertically. And then you can do a basic pinning combinationone person on top, one on the bottom. Follow that up with a cigarette and a nice sleeper hold, because after its over you just want to cuddle and go to sleep.
Stand back and witness Trishs dont-try-at-home takedown. Its a doozie!
To execute Trishs debilitating Stratusfaction signature move, grab your opponent in a firm headlock. His body should be behind you, bent over so that hes facing the ground.
Run toward anything you can use as a springboardthe bar, a pool tabletaking him with you. Then jump up and vault backward, keeping his noggin tightly nestled in your bosom.
As you fall, twist your body and push his face toward the ground. If done properly, youll land on your butt, with his kisser breaking your fall. End with a celebratory call to your lawyer.
