Lisa Marie Varon, better known as Victoria, a former two-time WWE Women’s Champion, recently revealed that she felt uncomfortable backstage at an AEW event.
During a recent episode of GAW TV, Varon expressed her discomfort at an AEW event. She mentioned feeling unwelcome and receiving looks of disapproval when she went backstage to greet friend and producer Sarah Stock. Varon said:
I went backstage to go find Sarah (Stock). She goes, ‘Are you gonna come back here to say hi to me?’ I go, ‘Um, can you meet me at the curtain?’ I go, ‘Oh no, all the new talent’ and then of course when I went back there, I got the look like, what the f*ck is she doing here? Excuse my language. I felt uncomfortable.
This is not the first time Varon has spoken out about feeling mistreated in the wrestling industry. In April, Varon claimed to have been treated poorly backstage at a WWE event.
