'''Terri Poch''' (b. 1964) is a retired American {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er, manager and trainer from UsefulNotes/{{Portland}}, Oregon known for her work in the early 1990s as '''Terri Power''' and for Wrestling/{{WWE}} from 1998-2001 as '''Tori.''' She started her career as '''Taylor Made Medina''', the valet for [[Wrestling/{{Raven}} Scotty the Body (Scott "Raven" Levy)]] in NWA Pacific Northwest Wrestling in 1988. She made her in-ring debut in 1990 as Terri Power in the [=LPWA=], as well as competing in various women's independent promotions. She competed there until the promotion closed in 1992, and then switched to Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling before taking a hiatus in 1993. She returned to wrestling in 1998 when she became Tori. Her original character was as a "fan" of Wrestling/{{Sable}}, which ended when Sable rejected her. Tori then went into a feud with Wrestling/{{Ivory}} over the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwf-wm.html WWE Women's Title]], which included them competing in the first-ever hardcore match for the title on the September 6, 1999 ''Raw.'' She then became Wrestling/{{Kane}}'s unstable girlfriend, which ended when she [[FaceHeelTurn turned heel]] on him and joined [=DX=]. That lasted until ''King of the Ring'' in June 2000, when Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys powerbombed her through a table. Her last onscreen role was as Raven's masked ninja woman, which was interesting since her first-ever role in the business was as Levy's valet. She was one of the trainers for the first season of ''Wrestling/WWEToughEnough.'' She retired after her departure from WWF. She is a 1x [[http://www.solie.org/titlehistories/stllpwa.html LPWA Champion]].

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Tori refused to accept a demotion and go back to Ohio Valley Wrestling, so she was fired for real, and so abruptly that she didn't even appear on the season finale of Tough Enough 1. Her existence hasn't been acknowledged by [=WWF/E=] since.

** HandOrObjectUnderwear: The 1999 videocassette ''Come Get Some: The Women of the WWF'' ended with a photoshoot montage. In one scene, Tori was wearing a kind of half-sweater. She pulled it up but put her hand over her breast.
** ThongOfShielding[=/=]ToplessnessFromTheBack: On the August 26, 1999 episode of ''[=SmackDown!=]'', she was scheduled to face Ivory in an Evening Gown Match. Wrestling/MichaelCole, still a neutral character, attempted to interview Tori backstage before the match as she walked away from the camera. Tori pulled down her evening gown, saying that there was no way Ivory was going to humiliate her, and, with her back to the camera, walked around backstage wearing only a thong and shoes until she was stopped by a group of referees and [[DemotedtoExtra Road Agent]] Tony Garea, who gave her his shirt to wear. Tori won, of course, in 57 seconds. The fact that she was attempting to walk to the ring practically naked on national network television should qualify for RefugeInAudacity.
** TooSexyForThisTimeSlot: [[Creator/{{ESPN}} TSN in Canada]] refused to air the Ivory-Tori hardcore Women's Title Match on the September 6, 1999 ''[=Raw=]'' because of Tori's outfit, [[WetSariScene a white, wet man's button-down shirt, a white bra and a white thong]].
