WWE.com Catches Up With Tara

WWE.com’s latest addition to its “Where Are They Now?” feature spotlights former WWE Women’s and TNA Knockouts Champion Tara aka Lisa Marie Varon.

Varon talks about a plethora of topics, including training for her WWE tryout, working with Steven Richards and the moment that changed her life: a chance meeting with a former WWE Intercontinental Champion at a health club.

“I ran into Chyna at a health club. I told her I was friends with Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus. She said I had a good look and asked if I had ever thought about [getting into wrestling].”

Immediately following her surprise encounter with the Ninth Wonder of the World, Lisa reminisces on how she put together a tape of her fitness competition material and news segments that she had appeared in. Following a call from WWE and high praise from Jim Ross, she began to learn to wrestle at UPW before attending a WWE tryout.

“I called them and said, ‘I have 28 days to learn how to wrestle, can I come visit your facility?’ Of course, you can’t learn how to wrestle in 28 days.”

One of Lisa’s most popular on-screen relationships is her partnership with Steven Richards. Lisa recalled the connection her and Richards had, saying, “Oh my gosh, we had total chemistry. I remember one time, I got so into it that I licked his face and bit his ear. People were like, ‘Whoa, what was that?’ I didn’t know. Once my music hits, Lisa doesn’t exist, I’m Victoria.”

Lisa also discusses her working in OVW, training with Finlay and her current work at her restaurant, The Squared Circle.
