Q. Compare and contrast working with TNA and WWE, your thoughts on leaving WWE and at the time you talked about leaving pro wrestling. How seriouswere you about that and what changed your mind?

A. The only comparison between TNA and WWE are that they are both based on pro wrestling. They are different in every possible way. I could spend a day contrasting the two. All I will say is that they each have their pros and their cons.
I left WWE for two reasons. First, I was fried. I really needed time off. I had pretty much been on the road for seven years straight. Don’t get me wrong, it was incredible. But for those seven years, I was either on the road or getting ready to be on the road. It gets exhausting. The fact that I was able to do it that long is a testament to how much I loved it.Second, once you are in the spotlight, it’s hard to play a supporting role. I was tired of waiting for an opportunity to be the focus again. So if you combine being worn out, and not being happy with my role, I just felt like it was time to go. After my final match, I bawled little girl tears. I thought that was it.But you can’t go from being busy non-stop to having nothing to do. After a couple weeks, I was stir crazy. I started MMA training on a more regular basis. But after a few months, I was contacted by TNA. They sold me on the idea of wrestling part time, 3-5 days a month. Plus they had some girls I really wanted to work with. Especially Kong. And by that point, I really missed wrestling.

TNA did not have to work hard to sell me.

Are YOU up for taking the Geek Fit Challenge?

BY GEEKTOME · Monday, February 27, 2012 3:30pm


Whenever the seasons start changing from winter to spring, I start thinking about what I’m going to be wearing as the weather gets warmer. Since I’ll no longer be able to hide my considerable girth under layers of clothing, I always resolve to shed a few pounds so I don’t look like I’m smuggling a beach ball under my Green Lantern tee shirt. Of course, finding the motivation to lose weight is always a challenge. Since it never hurts to have some friends to help you out, I asked female pro-wrestler – and Chicago resident – Lisa Marie Varon to act as my trainer. After she graciously agreed to put me through my paces, we both thought, why not put the challenge out to other geeks and nerds in Chicago? So to that effect, we present to you the GEEK FIT CHALLENGE!

Here’s how Lisa puts it:

Hello everyone! I’m Lisa Marie Varon, but you may know me as “Tara” on SpikeTV’s TNA Impact Wrestling, or formerly as WWE Diva “Victoria.” When Elliott asked if I would help him get “geek fit” I thought it was a great idea! I’m a fan of geeky things myself, especially video games, and the idea of living a fit lifestyle is a real passion of mine.  And, as a former Professional Fitness Competitor; former Nationally Recognized Personal Trainer; former Medical Industry Professional; and 7 Time World Champion Professional Wrestler, who better to lead the GEEK FIT CHALLENGE?

The thing that I want you all to know is that there are many ways to be “fit.” You don’t have to be buff like a pro-wrestler, or have six-pack abs to be fit. Everyone is different and there are lots of ways you can feel “fit” and happy with yourself.

Elliott and I are looking for a ‘few good geeks’ who want to get into ‘geek fit’ shape! Over the next 3 months we’ll be working out together and getting active. I’ll even be sharing tips for things you can do to enjoy all the geeky-fun things you like while living a healthy lifestyle.

To be a part of the Geekfit Challenge you must:
Live in the Chicago area (group meetings will be held in a Chicago facility)
Be approved by your physician to undergo an exercise regimen
Be willing to complete the full program (3 months)
Be ready and willing to keep a diary of your progress and share it with Geek To Me readers.

At the end of the 3 months, we’ll be awarding a prize to the one who’s made the most progress, but everyone is sure to be a winner!

We’re looking for 3 guys and 3 gals to take the challenge. Do you think you’re up for it? If so, drop us a line at!

UPDATE: The deadline to submit yourself as a candidate is Monday, March 5th, 2011.

FWE Women’s championship Tournament: Maria Kanellis vs. Tara
This is Maria’s first match since leaving WWE. Tara said that she said it was a huge honor to see that Maria wanted to wrestle her in her comeback match since WWE. She noted that it was also Maria’s birthday and sanf Happy Birthday to her, then attacked her. That was great. Tara worked her over in the corner and drilled her with shoulderblocks.

Maria came back with a series of armdrags and a twisting headscissors. Maria nailed her with the Bronco Buster in the corner. Tara rolled out of the ring to clear her head. Maria followed her to the floor. Tara took the mic and ripped on NYC. She returned to the ring and kicked Maria, who was on the apron, hard in the gut and Maria flew off to the floor. Back in the ring, she covered Maria for a two count.

Tara mocked her, telling Maria to smile as she worked her over. She used an over the shoulder backbreaker. Tara locked her in a side chinlock, trying to force a submission. Maria fired back with several elbows but was nailed and sent back to the mat. She whipped Maria into the ropes and went for a clothesline but Maria nailed one at the same time, so they both landed on the mat, out of it. The referee began counting them both out but they returned to their feet and began battling back and forth.

Maria got the better of the exchange, nailing several clotheslines. She went to the top and nailed a flying bodypress for a two count. Tara cut her off and nailed a TKO for a two count. Tara went the Widow’s Peak but Winter ran out and grabbed Maria’s leg, preventing the move. Tara and Winter had a faceoff and Winter backed out of the ring. Maria rolled up Tara for the pin.

Your winner, Maria Kanellis!

Later on during the show, it was the FWE Women’s Championship Tournament Final match with Winter vs. Maria Kanellis. During the match, Brooke Tessmacher came out and distracted the referee, which allowed Tara to hit the ring and nail The Widow’s Peak on Winter. Kanellis covered her for the pin to become the first-ever FWE Women’s champion

TNA Knockout Tara on Getting into Wrestling, Tarantulas and MMA
by Joshua Modaberi

Tara, also known as as Victoria during her time with the WWE, is one of the most decorated women’s wrestlers of all time and is a six-time Women’s Champion, winning the title twice with the WWE and four-times in TNA.

The 41-year-old has been in the business for 12 years now, having made her debut for the WWE at WrestleMania XVI, but it was a chance meeting that got her into wrestling in the first place. caught up with Tara to discuss how she got into the wrestling industry, wrestling over in the UK and tarantulas, plus much more.

Q. How did you first get into wrestling?

I was a fitness competitor back in the ’90s. Torrie Wilson and myself used to take part in fitness competitions together. Torrie was working at WCW at the time and she brought be backstage and she was walking a guy out to the ring. I said to her ‘you get paid to walk a guy out there, that must be awesome’…

TNA’s Tara: I want to be a Page 3 girl
By Phil Allely
Published: January 18, 2012

She’s won championship belts in both WWE and TNA and is generally recognized as one of the best female wrestlers in history.
But there’s only one thing Tara really wants — to appear in The Sun.

In an exclusive interview to promote TNA’s upcoming UK Tour, Tara told SunSport: “I’d love to be a Page 3 Girl!

“I’ll pack my swimsuit for the tour and wait for you guys to call me.”

The brunette, who was known as Victoria in WWE, added: “I love the fact that the TNA Knockouts Division are making such a mark on wrestling fans and I appreciate the fact that many people tune in to see us sexy girls.

“I love that we get a lot more ring and interview time than other companies offer their ladies.

“I mean we get to main event TV tapings and house shows. I see the ratings and our segments are often the most watched parts of impact shows.”

Having started her career as a member of the Godfathers Ho Train, Tara can relate to the cynics who belittle the females who get high paid jobs in wrestling for their looks alone.

She said: “I was signed (to the WWE) with no wrestling experience, I was in the right place at the right time and my look and my fitness training background helped me get that job.

“I paid my dues though. I spent three years going to wrestling school, working my way around the indy and developmental leagues.

“You know I’d never bad mouth girls who have got an opportunity in this business without any in-ring ability.

“The big thing though is that they need to realize just how hard you have to work and bust your butt to get the recognition you deserve.”

After leaving WWE, many felt that Tara would head to TNA — but she said it wasn’t an obvious decision to her and that she considered retirement.

Looking back at that time, Tara revealed: “When I left the WWE I really did think that was it, I was through with wrestling.

“It seemed like I was not good enough to hold a title or get a good storyline anymore, but yet I was used as a tool to help new girls improve and gain confidence, I’d lost my interest.

“I knew about TNA and I first started watching it when Awesome Kong and Gail Kim started tearing the house down with their classic matches.

“It wasn’t until I spoke to them that I realized that the schedule would be so much easier on my body. TNA offered me a deal of no house shows and only TV tapings initially.

“I couldn’t resist that. I’m so glad now as I see the division being as hot today as the WWE glory days of myself, Trish, Lita and Mickie.”

The upcoming TNA UK tour is poised to be the biggest yet for the company, with Sting and Hulk Hogan confirmed for the shows. Tara is excited about rubbing shoulders with the legends.

She said: “The fans are so amazing in the UK, we get engulfed in their enthusiasm and it makes us work harder too.

“We’ll be having fun out there and with Mickie James, Gail Kim, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky there we are sure to have some great matches.

“It’s unbelievable to think of how successful we are as a brand in the UK, you know we were always compared to the WWE, but we are not the same and never have been.

“I think we are really standing out as ourselves now.”

TNA wrestling prepares for Impact in Plymouth
By David Wolcott
Wicked Local Plymouth
Posted December 31, 2011 @ 10:00 AM

PLYMOUTH — For someone who has played a person teetering on the edge of insanity for large parts of her career as a professional wrestler, it’d be hard to imagine a person more grounded than Lisa Marie Varon.

No arrests or stints in a rehabilitation facility for her, Varon, better known as TNA Knockout Tara, will bring her brand of controlled insanity to Memorial Hall when Total Nonstop Action Wrestling presents the TNA Impact Wrestling World Tour in Plymouth Saturday, Jan. 21.

“I guess I’m just a lucky girl who eats, breathes and sleeps professional wrestling,” Tara joked during a recent phone interview. “But really, the reason I’m so grounded is I truly love what I do with all of my heart. I’ve had a passion for this business forever, and that’s what still drives me today. I absolutely love what I do, and I want to be able to enjoy every single second of it.”

Tara, 40, is one of the few female wrestlers who’s made a rather lengthy career for herself in the business. While not in the veteran realm of Mae Young or the Fabulous Moolah quite yet, 12 years in the business does make her a true veteran of the sport.

“The average female wrestler is in the business for maybe five or six years, but like I said before, I really love what I do,” she explained. “When my music hits, I cannot believe or explain the rush I still get from the crowd every time I walk through the curtain. It absolutely still sends a jolt right through me.”

“The good thing is I’ve been able to save my money and start to look at what life’s going to be after my wrestling days are over,” added Tara, who recently opened a restaurant in Chicago with her husband. “I love this life, and it’s still so much fun for me, but I’ll know when the time is right to step away.”

And, fortunately, that time has not yet arrived.

“I love working with TNA,” Tara said. “The events are so much more than just a wrestling match. I love the fact that we really get the chance to get out there and meet with the fans. The TNA events are very family-friendly, and we try the best we can to make every card a special event for the fans that pay their money to see us.”

Born and raised in California, Tara was an All-American cheerleader in high school before moving on to study biology at UCLA. She entered some fitness competitions, and that’s where she caught the eye of former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) divas Chyna and Torrie Wilson, who thought Tara had the athletic ability and the attitude to make it as a professional wrestler.

A fan of the sport, she decided to follow their advice and give pro wrestling a try. She started her training in California in 2000, eventually picking up a developmental contract with WWE and moving her training base to Memphis and then Louisville. She got the call to join the WWE full-time in June of 2002 and made the most of her opportunity, famously feuding with Trish Stratus, Molly Holly and Gail Kim among others on the way to winning two WWE titles.

She eventually parted ways with WWE and made her debut in TNA, where she has been ladies champion several times, most recently holding world tag-team titles with Brooke Tessmacher.

“I’m still having a great time in the business, and, knock on wood, besides a torn elbow and a torn ACL, I’ve been pretty healthy over the years,” Tara said. “I’ve been lucky to remain fairly healthy for most of my career.”

At this point, Tara is not only keeping her own career going, she’s also trying to impart what she’s learned to the next generation of women wrestlers.

“Brooke is getting better in the ring every day,” Tara said about her tag-team partner, who she will team up with in Plymouth to take on the tag team of Rosita and Sarita. “Someone I really like is Rosita. She’s so young, but you watch her in the ring and you can see how far she’s come in such a short period of time. Check back in three or four years, and with that much more experience, she’s going to be something special to watch.”

Monday Night Mayhem’s Exclusive Interview With Impact Wrestling’s Tara (TNA BaseBrawl: Buffalo, NY) Transcript

The Big Mosh: Members of Mayhem Nation, the Summer of Mayhem 2011 continues. We are indeed live, well not necessarily live from Coca Cola Field getting ready for TNA’s BaseBrawl. Talk about an intimate setting with former TNA Knockouts Champion Tara joining us right here right now. Mayhem Nation you know that you want to be me. Tara we appreciate you reserving some time for the Mayhem Nation.

Tara: Absolutely, no problem.

TBM: How are you?

Tara: I’m great. I’m excited. I’m.. First time I’ve ever done this kinda, show.. I think.

TBM: I was just going to mention you’ve of course been to Buffalo many times with your time in the WWE.. coming back to western New York, the fans here, what’s it like for you?

Tara: It’s.. It’s awesome, I feel like um, it’s weird cause I’ve never taken a long break, from wrestling. My longest was my three month…? stint.. ? away, when I retired. Well, not retired.. my last match. And uh, I feel still like it’s.. just I’m on tour for twelve whole years, I’ve been touring. But it’s always exciting going back because.. you always remember certain people.. do you know what I mean?

TBM: Absolutely.

Tara: And the arenas and locker room. But I don’t remember this, have I performed here before?

TBM: I don’t believe so. Probably across the street at the HBCS Arena a couple times..

Tara: Yeah, I know that, yeah yeah.. I know that, I know that. But it’s great, always great to see our fans back here in New York.

TBM: Now to be able to get back to your fans again..

Tara: Buffalo, New York…

TBM: ..a chance to have that.. to have that intimate setting…

Tara: Yeah! That’s pretty cool. Isn’t it?

TBM: Absolutely.

Tara: Did you go out there and see it?

TBM: Fantastic. Just saying was great.

Tara: Amazing. I mean.. it’s gonna.. it’s gonna be very fan.. we’re always fan friendly. That’s what the difference here.. which I noticed, the difference, we’re so like kinda.. in contact with everyone. Very.. like.. family oriented, fan interaction.. to the core. But uh.. this gonna be a really intimate.. moment and um, I love baseball too, and it’s.. anything to do with baseball, to be on the field, anything.. you get that excitement. I don’t know about you, but I…

TBM: Without a doubt.

Tara: I do. I do, big time. So, I’m super excited about this. And I’m facing uh, Winter.. tonight. And we’ve never.. had a singles match together. This is the first time her and I ever have a match together.. you know.. and it’s on a.. house show. (laughs)

TBM: We had a chance…

Tara: Via BaseBrawl..

TBM: We had a chance to interview Winter a couple weeks ago and she was adamant about.. not only working with you but getting her shot at the Knockouts Championship. Now one of the things I always admired about you is the fact that.. back.. many years ago you had that.. that knee injury if I’m not mistaken..

Tara: Yeah.

TBM: ..and you just.. you just continue just to gut it out, so what does it say about your.. your.. your.. your intestinal fortitude just.. just really gutting through something like that.

Tara: You know I think it’s craziness honestly. I, when I tore it I thought, you know.. I remember snapping it, I heard it snap and stuff like that, but I don’t have pain, in it, to be honest with you. It doesn’t hurt, at the moment.. I had to wear the brace, to prevent certain angles.. You know, steel cage match, Mickie James, I tore my ligament here (elbow), was gonna pursue MMA but.. the doctor, you know.. I need Tommy John surgery, eventually, but I’m gonna try not to get.. it. I just don’t want arthritis and stuff like this, and Stone Cold Steve Austin was the one that told me don’t get surgery, it ends up getting worse sometimes with arthritis. So I kinda feel a little badass with my knee brace, like Stone Cold..

TBM: (laughs)

Tara: .. so I’m like kinda going “Yeah, I’m a vet” you know, that kinda thing? It’s kinda.. I don’t know, I’m goofy like that.

TBM: Now of course going into the summer, Destination X just a couple of weeks away, after that is Hardcore Justice. All the Knockouts it seems has got their eyes on the gold, you’ve of course had your problems with Mickie James, would you really want to tell the fans out there, especially the Mayhem Nation, really what they can expect from you during the course of the summer? Some gold around your waist could be really nice.

Tara: I’m hoping that, I’m hoping that. You know, we are friends, we get along now, but she does know that I’m looking at her belt and she has to watch her back on that. I’m looking forward.. I hope to have another… match with her, she’s very fun to work. Her and I are.. hardcore big time, uh.. it’s.. we are sore after a match, it’s just… But anything for the fans, to entertain. You wanna make it as entertaining as possible and her and I have an agreement, uh.. we’re gonna kill each other out there. You know what I mean? So…

TBM: Lastly, if you can share with our viewing and listening audience especially the comradery that you’ve had with Trish Stratus, Mickie James and.. and Winter, sounds like you had a hell of a weekend…

Tara: We did! We did.

TBM: .. up in the Toronto area. What does it really say about, you know.. that people in the WWE, TNA they can still get along. Just the relationships that you’ve bonded and formed over many years…

Tara: It’s weird that you mention that, because.. Trish came to the Toronto show, she just hung out backstage to watch out match, and um.. we’re driving back and I go “This is so cool how, how awesome it is that we can have friends…”

The Pope: (off camera) Hello everybody!

Tara: ‘Ellooo!

TBM: And there’s The Pope ladies and gentlemen.

Tara: The Pope daddy-o!

TBM: You never know what to expect on The Mayhem.

Tara: You never know.. and he was my travel partner in Louisville. So uh, we’re pretty tight. But uh, we were saying how.. it’s just awesome that we can walk away.. and still make, you know have really really tight, close friends. And um, you know Tommy Dreamer always told me you’re lucky to leave this business with more than five friends. You know what I mean? You’re lucky, usually you end up not keeping contact and stuff like that. And uh.. it’s super.. it’s awesome that.. you know, when we do see each other it’s like we haven’t left. You know like those high school friends you were really tight with..

TBM: You just pick up where you left off.

Tara: Exactly. And we’ve been having a great great weekend. And um, gonna keep an eye on Winter cause she’s kinda strange one.

TBM: (laughs)

Tara: So um, it was really odd. Last night we did something really cool in Toronto, and we went to a Greek festival, um.. well Greek, we went to Greek Town, had a Greek meal.

TBM: Okay.

Tara: Nutritious Greek, and went to this bar that opened at 1, and they had performers. It’s all Greek, people did.. all Greek. And we danced.. it was unbelievable. I had an amazing time, and it’s really.. we don’t get to do that on the road. I mean it’s go go go, what our lifestyle is. You perform, get in the car, head to the next town, lucky to get a meal, you know, something that’s open.. you know wake up in the morning, get a gym.. you know go to the gym, freakin’.. it’s just a routine. And it’s nice to be able to get out of that routine.. once in a while. You know it’s not all glamorous, you know that…

TBM: Absolutely.

Tara: and um.. it’s.. it’s awesome. And I’m.. pretty close with Trish, I mean that’s a friend I’ll be.. we’ll be the Mae and Moolah of the future. (laughs)

TBM: From.. and from the way things are sounding.. in ring, outta the ring, retirement.. not even crossed your mind in any way, shape or form?

Tara: No, and I never, ever.. WWE put the label that I was retiring, and that wasn’t my.. you never say never in the business. You never know when you’re gonna come back for a special appearance, and I hate that when people say that when people say “I’m retiring” and they end up coming back. Um, I made sure in my last match, if you watch my last match at WWE, I said it was my last match “in WWE”.

TBM: Mmhmm.

Tara: And uh, I never.. I always watched TNA, I was a big Kong fan.. and Gail Kim, you know, their feud, that’s when I started really watching the product. And uh.. I planned on being a little off of.. from wrestling for a while, longer than when I was and um, they called me and I said I don’t know if I can do that travel anymore, and I wanna be with my family, uh.. it was my families turn. I mean you miss a lot, people are like “Oh I wanna wrestle, I wanna wrestle” they don’t know what you give up. You give up a lot of family time, you know.. anniversaries, deaths in the family. It’s just this.. it’s really hard, grueling life and I said “I don’t think I’m ready to come back”, and they said “Well, we have a really easy schedule.” And I was like “Well let me think about it” but I needed to give them a decision, in four hours..

TBM: Wow.

Tara: And um.. talked to my family about it, and I was like “I think I wanna do it one more year”, then another year, and then I.. just re-signed another year. So um.. I do year to year, because um, I’m 40.. and you never know..

TBM: You don’t look it.

Tara: Thank you.

TBM: She doesn’t look it. Absolutely not.

Tara: I think I don’t act it, that’s the key.

TBM: That’s the point, I guess.

Tara: But um.. you never know when your body is gonna give out, I.. I don’t wanna be that.. that female wrestler that, well you feel sorry for me coming down the ramp. I still wanna be that badass.. ass kicker, you know.. wrestler, and.. I wanna be true to my art. I don’t wanna be.. felt sorry for?

TBM: Uh huh.

Tara: So.. that’s why I do year to year. You never know what’s.. what injuries are gonna occur, you know?

TBM: Very true.

Tara: It’s safety. I’m.. I’m not.. I’m not that one to go “You have to lock me up for five years”, you know? If I’m happy.. I’m gonna re-sign again. You know what I mean.

TBM: Absolutely.

Tara: I’m not that high maintenance of a person. I don’t think.

TBM: You can see Tara and all of the rest of the Knockouts of Impact Wrestling every Thursday on Spike TV and 9 PM Eastern, 8 PM Central and Destination X on Sunday, July the 10th, call your local cable or satellite provider for availability ah.. enjoy the rest of your time in Buffalo.

Tara: I will, and if you guys every want to chit chat I’m “@REALLiSAMARiE” on Twitter. So, tweet me. Tweet tweet tweet.

TBM: She loves to tweet.

Tara: I love to tweet! (laughs)

Lisa Marie posted a new blog called “Thanks everybody!” You can read the blog below.

Subject: Thanks everybody!

Hey WPF’s !

I just want to reach out to everyone who has expressed their concern over the fire at Black Widow Customs. First, thanks so much! The most important thing is that no one was hurt. Also, our window tinter Justin walked in on the fire. He acted heroically by first warning the neighbors, then attempting to put it out himself, and assisting the fireman as they scrambled to the scene. And for those who weren’t aware, there was an ice storm the previous night, and the roads were covered in sheets of ice, but the fire department arrived very quickly and kept it from being a VERY bad situation. So much thanks to them as well. The damage looks a lot worse than it is. The weeks leading up to Christmas are obviously a very busy time of the year for any retailer, and BWC will reopen ASAP. It may be as soon as Monday, although we’ll know better later today.

A local news station has also focused on an unhappy customer recently. I know the guys at BWC work hard and and take pride in what they do. I’m confident that they did the right thing, and anyone who knows me knows that I believe that the best defense is a good offense. You’ll be hearing more on this once BWC takes action.

More importantly right now, BWC has some hard working, dedicated employees that are suddenly out of work ten days before Christmas through no fault of their own. I will personally make sure that their hard work is rewarded, and that they have a happy holiday season.

And finally, yesterday morning I was having some tumors cut out of my breast. I have had them before, and they always turn out to be nothing. But they have to be checked. They had always been tiny little biopsies. Unfortunately, this time I had to be completely put out. When I came to in recovery, I was pretty groggy. I was going through my phone, and I got a text from former WWE Superstar Domino. He asked ‘are you okay?’. So I replied, ‘yes’. Then he said,’Good. Saw the news and was wondering’. And I was thinking, how is it on the news that I’m getting my boob cut on? Obviously, he was talking about the fire, which I didn’t know about yet…

Anyway, thanks for your support, but I am fine. I am actually better than fine. Although it’s appreciated, show your concern for those who need it. This holiday season I’m counting my blessings, and I hope you are too.

Later Holiday Taters, Lisa Marie : )
