Veteran TNA Knockout Tara, real name Lisa Marie Varon, has the opportunity to go for her fifth Knockouts Championship this Sunday night at Bound for Glory on pay per view, but this isn’t just any old title match; Tara faces her former friend and tag team partner, Brooke Tessmacher, the reigning champion as their heated rivalry comes to a head.
Fans have seen Tara’s change in attitude since last month’s No Surrender pay per view where she lost a friendly match with Brooke for the title. Since, she’s adopted a meaner attitude in the ring and has been bragging about a “Hollywood boyfriend”.
Ahead of her title match with Brooke at the biggest TNA pay per view of the year, Tara talks to us about her recent heel turn, injecting her own goofy personality into backstage segments, the rejuvenation of the Knockouts division and which creative team member is behind it, and more.
We also get Tara’s thoughts on recent tryout matches she’s been a part of for the likes of Jillian Hall and Ivelisse Velez, doing the Gut Check match with Taeler Hendrix, and comparisons between Brooke Tessmacher and one Trish Stratus.
