    Not only she is a great role-model, she is also an inspiration! Lisa Varon is the reason why I started loving so much watching wrestling. I still remember her theme -”I’m no lady to mess with”- when she entered with that energetic beat, it was breathtaking! And she never disappointed me as a fan!

    Íf by any chance you read this Tara I want you to know I’m your biggest fan from Portugal!!!

    Huge kiss!

    • dunk20

      Because it isn’t just the “wrestler”. It’s how she is such a down to earth person with such a kind and big heart that you can see without even meeting her in real life!


      I´m portuguese too :)

    • GAHWDO

      I’m brazilian :D

  • chrissy

  • Jhonmarco

    Aw @ Tara being so sorry of “being late” <3 god I love this woman. Such an awesome person :)

  • Taylor

    Lisa Marie — if you’re reading this — I demand a Golden Age Divas Reunion! I would love to see that happen. Hopefully a longer interview is in the works for the future.

  • Mickie-DT

    “You know what I mean?” Must be her favourite sentence to use! Hehe. :D She’s very humble and genuine. I’d love to see her and Eve throw down in the ring!!

  • WWFoverWWE

    Such an amazing woman. Her legacy will never be forgotten.

  • Raekon

    Always loved her and always will! :)
    Thanks for the interview and thanks to lisa for taking the time for it! :)

  • dah-dah-dah-diva

    Victoria is amazing in every way possible. So athletic, amazing in the ring with everyone, broke down barriers with Trish, took mainstream women’s wrestling to heights that I don’t think it will ever taken to again. She is also very, very sweet and kind! Truly a legend and icon in women’s wrestling.

    The interview was really great but I wish some of you guys would respond faster! The awkward silence at times is very uncomfortable LOL.

    • GAHWDO

      agreed on the part of the silence lol it was just so.. >_< gosh

  • Young Master Jamie


  • Bee_Miller

    Thanks so much diva dirt again for the amazing content!
    Lisa my god seriously someone needs to give this woman a medal!
    She just seem like the coolest person I felt abit bad for her though at times it seemed like melanie was abit mad haha. She was so candid and then melanie would kind of just move on to the next question lol … Love you Tara!

  • Kevin_G.

    Lisa is a very nice person. I remember meeting her at my job in 2007, I followed her into the aisle and asked for a picture lol..so nice. I would love to meet her again someday!

  • perceval

    Great interview. And, interesting observation about the closeness of the Golden Age Divas that she suspects is lacking with the current ones. You could always tell they were a close knit bunch in the behind the scenes vids,


    LOVED this interview, Tara is just one of the sweetiest persons I ever seen, just love this woman ? I hope I can meet her one day, it is one of my biggest dreams *-*

  • AKA_AK

    Would love to see her and Eve go at it someday.

    I adore her so, so much.
