Torrie Wilson, Tara Inducted into Hall of Fame

It could be argued that some of WWE’s top Divas in history have come from the fitness industry — Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson and Victoria (now known as Tara in TNA), to name but a few — and now two of those former Divas are being honored for their pre-WWE careers in fitness.

Tri-Fitness has inducted Torrie and Tara (real name Lisa Marie Varon) into its Hall of Fame, Class of 2012.

Torrie is was the first Tri-Fitness Grace & Physique champion in 1998, while Tara placed in the top five of the Tri-Fitness World Challenge that same year.

Both went on to have successful careers in sports entertainment. Torrie retired from WWE in 2008 following a career-threatening back injury. Meanwhile, Tara, a two-time WWE Women’s Champion, now competes for TNA where she has been a four-time Knockouts Champion.

Congratulations to both Torrie and Lisa on their achievement!

    Congratulations to them!

    Surprised with them picking Tara though, with her being in TNA right now… with WWE being their business-heavy selves I’d have expected them to avoid promoting a rival!

    TNA isn’t popular enough to be considered a “threat” to WWE with these types of promotions anyways.
