Two-time WWE Women’s Champion Victoria was a guest on Ring the Belle recently where she spoke about her time with the company.
Victoria was with the WWE from 2000 to 2009, where she worked with such talent like the Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, but according to her the one thing she really would have wanted to do was face current WWE women’s superstar – and her former tag team partner – Natalya.
“That girl—there’s a saying in our business—she can wrestle a broomstick and make that broomstick look really good. She’s an amazing wrestler,” said Victoria about Natalya.
Victoria recalls that they only ever had the one singles match and it was a dark match so it didn’t get onto television. After that, the two were placed in a tag team so they never got to face each other.
“I wanted us to break up and then get into it,” said Victoria.
Victoria also talked about her retirement from professional wrestling and confirmed that it was a big bump during a match that made her decide to retire for her health.
“I took a suicide dive, which I’ve never taken a suicide dive in my career. I shouldn’t have done it, but my ego man. The next day when I landed at home, I looked at my boyfriend I said, ‘I can’t do this.’ This is my last year. I still want to be good out in the ring and people to remember and not feel sorry for me,” said Victoria.
Victoria had a 20-year career as a professional wrestler before retiring last September. After leaving WWE, she went to TNA where under the ring name Tara, she held the TNA Knockouts Championship five-times. She also wrestled in the indies including Chikara and Ring of Honor.
