James then hypes tomorrow’s big uncut ClubWWI.com shoot interview. It’s nearly one hour with a star who hasn’t spoken out…in OVER FIVE YEARS! You don’t want to miss this one as our guest will definitely shoot straight.

With that, we listen to clips from Terri’s 45 Minute ClubWWI.com shoot.

James Guttman welcomes Terri Runnels to the show and asks her to talk about what she’s doing right now. Runnels mentions her newest venture – a contest. Terri wanted to sell her house but was aware of how bad the housing market was. She had heard of a woman who held a writing contest, but it was about her pets. Runnels wanted to go a different route so her contest – Make The World Write – is about how you can make the world a better place. People write in and the winner will not only get Terri’s home, but $100,000. She’s put together a panel of judges who will pass along the finalists to her for choosing. You can get more information on the contest at: MakeTheWorldWrite.com

In progress, Terri is discussing how she explained to a young Dakota about the characters she or Dustin played. She then mentions a gimmick that was against – at least when it came to the name.

“I fought Vince so hard on the whole P.M.S. thing. I was like, ‘Vince. Please!’ I said that just grosses me out. I think it’s horrible. He’s like, ‘No. I love it. I love it.’ I’m like, ‘Let’s do POP or,” you know, I even forget what the acronym was for POP. Um. I’ll have to think about it now. I came up with several different like things. One of the things with pop is, remember how like Batman would be in that cartoon where they would go “Bam! Wham!” My thing was and I know it’s gonna drive me crazy because I can’t remember what my acronym was for P.O.P. I’ll have to come up with that.”

Terri pauses as Dakota, in the background, says something.

“Dakota’s over here going, “Princesses of The Press.” No. What’d you say? She said Princess of Priss.”

Runnels then explains the presentation of P.O.P. and how the entrance would play out. In the end, it was all just an idea.

“Vince said no and we went with P.M.S.”

TerriTERRI RUNNELS REVEALS THE ENDING TO THE UNFINISHED BRIAN PILLMAN-DUSTIN RHODES STORYLINE

By WorldWrestlingInsanity.com

Last year, ClubWWI.com welcomed Dustin Rhodes for an extended shoot interview. Now, we welcome the rest of the family. Former WWE Diva Terri Runnels joined the site along with her daughter, Dakota, in a rare and special appearance!

¬†Terri’s 45 minute shoot interview with James Guttman had a lot of ground to cover. From her early days as CNN makeup artist turned WCW manager Alexandra York to her time as Marlena to the “Horny Little She Devil,” Runnels has been of the most beloved and recognizable women in wrestling. In her ClubWWI.com shoot, you can hear her talk about a ton of subjects including: The Original Name She Wanted For P.M.S., Brian Pillman’s Last Night, Dakota’s Thoughts On Whether She’d Want To Be In The Wrestling Business, The Inspiration For “Marlena,” How She’s Still Has Some “Alexandra York” In Her, TNA Possibilities, The Terri Invitational Tournament, What Made Her Want To Vomit Backstage, How You Can Win Her House, and More

(For more info on how you can win Terri’s House AND $100,000, check out: www.MakeTheWorldWrite.com)

Also, as mentioned, fans may remember the many WWE video packages featuring Terri and Dustin along with their young daughter Dakota. Now, in an exclusive, hear from Dakota as she talks to James about her current interests, fans, her mom’s wrestling gimmicks, whether she’ll ever get into wrestling, and more.

One subject that James Guttman asked Terri about was the Brian Pillman-Dustin Rhodes “XXX Files” feud. The storyline was that Dustin lost her to Brian for 30 days. The angle was set to end at Bad Blood, where they would renew their wedding vows to chagrin of Pillman. Unfortunately, Brian tragically died before the finish could happen. Terri discusses Pillman’s final night, regrets she has over it, learning he had passed away, working with him, and more. However, she also talks about the original ending for the storyline.

“The way that angle would have finished, Dustin and I would have had the renewal of our vows. I had a wedding dress that my designer had made for me. We were going to be in the ring. The preacher doing a renewal of our vows. At the time he would say, is there anyone here who has reason that these two people should not be married, let them speak now or forever hold their peace. And that would have been…Brian was going to come down and say, you know, me. I was going to actually, there was gonna be juice and lots of blood. I was gonna throw myself on top of Brian and say, Dustin, during those 30 days, I fell in love with Brian. I can’t help myself, so, you know, I have to leave you and Dakota and go with Brian. The visual of that, I thought, would have been so amazing with this wedding dress, all the color all over it. And me leaving my husband and child to be with Brian.”

She goes on to tell James about the way WWE changed gears for that angle and where they ended up going with it. It’s just one of a ton of topics you can hear right now on ClubWWI.com and just one of over 120 guests available as soon as you sign up!
