Victoria Was In Talks For WWE Producer Role in 2015

Former WWE Superstar Lisa Marie Varon, better known as Victoria in WWE and Tara in TNA, has revealed she was in talks to become a producer for WWE back in 2015.

On a recent episode of The Wrestling Inc Daily Podcast, Victoria stated she was waiting on WWE to make the decision, but they never called her back:

“I talked [to them] a long time ago when I got divorced, [and] I moved back to California. So I was living with my brother, Mike, and I was living out of boxes. I didn’t want to unpack because they contacted me about possibly bringing me in as a trainer. And then I was calling, ‘Hello guys. I’m living out of a suitcase. I have one suitcase here at my brother’s house. Do I get an apartment? I can’t invade my brother’s family’s home.’ Even though they’re open arms. ‘You stay as long as you want,’ but I’m an adult. I need my own place. I need to set out my stuff, and do I unpack?”

The former Women’s Champion eventually called WWE and was told they had hired somebody else instead:

“I finally called Fit Finlay. He goes, ‘They already hired somebody for the training spot. They went with Sarah Stock,’ which is a great choice. I love her. She’s gonna be a future guest on our show, but I just wished I got a call back just to say ‘Hey, we’re going to go with somebody else. You can go ahead,’ and then as soon as I got the call, I was moving in with Torrie Wilson in LA. I was on hold.”

“I was like, ‘Okay, It’s been three months at my brother’s house.’ My brother’s like, ‘Have you heard back?’ And I go, ‘I called, but you don’t be a nag.’ But at the same time you’re like, I need to move on. I need to know what my next chapter in my life is. Do I go out to LA? Do I stay near my brother’s house? But I didn’t get the spot. My feelings weren’t hurt because I didn’t get the spot. My feelings were hurt with ‘well, I didn’t even get a callback to say move on.’ That’s when I got the boo-boo face.”

Victoria worked for WWE from 2000-2009 and was a two time Women’s Champion. She then moved to TNA where she became a five-time Knockouts Champion and a one-time Knockouts Tag Team Champion with her partner Brooke Tessmacher.
