Former TNA Knockouts Champion, Tara was revealed to be the woman under the biker helmet — and mask — on tonight’s episode of Impact, thus concluding the greatest mystery in all of women’s wrestling. *Cough*
It’s been an interesting, yet bumpy story over the past few months for Tara, real name Lisa Marie Varon. In April, the three-time champion announced that she would be leaving TNA at the end of her contract in May as the two sides couldn’t reach a new deal. In storyline, she put her career on the line against Madison Rayne at May’s Sacrifice pay per view, coming out on the losing end of a ‘Title vs Career’ match.
It’s thought that right before the Sacrifice pay per view in May, Varon reached a new deal with Dixie Carter personally. The event went as planned with Tara ‘retiring’ as TNA thought up a way to bring her back in future.
They did just that as in July, she returned as ‘Mystery Biker Chick’ at TNA’s Victory Road pay per view, attempting to aid Madison Rayne to retain the Knockouts Championship.
It’ll be interesting to see how they explain Tara’s return and alliance with Rayne, who seemingly ended her TNA career a few months back.
tWelcome back, Tara!
