Victoria was once one of the hardest hitting female wrestlers in WWE. The former Women’s Champion came through the ranks at the same time as Lita and Trish Stratus, which means that she was seen as one of the hard-hitting women of the Attitude Era.
Whilst Stratus and Lita are seen as legends of the business, Victoria has been somewhat overlooked despite the fact that she was also part of the generation that pushed women’s wrestling to the forefront of the company.
After her WWE career died down, Victoria went on to have a successful career in TNA where she was known under the ring name Tara. In Impact Wrestling she is a former five-time Knockout’s Champion.
Victoria left TNA back in 2011 and has since been working as part of the Independent Circuit, where she was able to be part of her long-time friend Candice Michelle‘s final match back in December 2017 at House of Hardcore.
Victoria has competed all over the world throughout her career, but is yet to return to WWE since her departure in 2009.
Victoria has been an active part of the business for almost two decades and now the former Champion has decided that it’s time to walk away. Lisa Marie Varon announced on her Instagram page last night that 2019 would be her final year in the squared circle because there was a new adventure to come.
It will be interesting to see if WWE bring Varon (Victoria) back for the Women’s Royal Rumble in a few weeks time, since this would be the last opportunity that the company will have before “the hottest free agent in the business” leaves the business behind.
