Tara was a featured guest on this week's episode of Monday Night Mayhem. Here are some highlights.

The experience of teaming up with "Mr. PEC-Tacular" Jessie Godderz in iMPACT Wrestling: "I love to manage. It is so much fun working and bouncing stuff off of each other, being goofy, and being able to entertain. At the same time, I can still wrestle. It also allows me to get my body a little bit of a rest while watching him wrestle. It is so much fun. I can't express how much fun I'm having."

Why she believes the current WWE Divas should not receive the criticism that they do: "It's not their fault. They have some great talent over there (in the WWE), but you cannot tell a story in four minutes with two entrances. We're lucky to have that much time on television to do it. I hope they get more time in the future, because they aren't getting their opportunity."

The direction of the TNA Knockouts division and where she sees things headed for the Knockouts in the new year: "I love where we are going. I think we're going to see some new faces, new feuds, and maybe a new style of wrestling. We have an awesome creative department that are huge fans of the Knockouts division. You'll be seeing a good year, honestly."

Former WWE Diva and current TNA star and Knockouts Champion Tara joined The Rack Thursday Night. In a nearly 20 minute interview, she discussed her upcoming documentary about being female in the world of professional wrestling, her feelings seeing the work-in-progress, what it’s like being a such a strong female character, breaking her arm in the famous cage match with Mickie James, her experience with hardcore matches, her feelings about the WWE Divas and how they are handled on TV, where does she the Knockout division going in 2013 and more.

About her upcoming documentary ‘Tarafied’ : “Well, it’s still in the works. He’s still adding onto it. It was done by Matt Goldberg, and he did it as a project for college; he’s a super fan of wrestling and I saw hime backstage here for quite a while and he finally came up to me. He did one on The Pope (D’Angelo), Elijah Burke and it went to Cannes Film Festival in France, so he’s presenting that to Cannes as well and it’s a documentary about how it is to be a female in a male-dominated industry, you know what I mean? So, I’m really flattered; it shows a lot of behind the scenes, things that the fans are not allowed usually to see. So, it’s kind of interesting. He’s still adding on; I’ll be opening a restaurant in Chicago in March and he’s going to be covering that too, so he’ll keep on adding to it and I’m very excited to see how it turns out.”

What she thought when she saw the in-progress work : “I’ll be honest, it’s hard; I mean, I’ve watched it and it’s really hard watching yourself, I find it very difficult. People think they love seeing themselves on TV; I’m the worst, I’m so critical. I’m a perfectionist, like when I watch my matches, I’m never happy with what I did. I mean, there’s always something I’ll beat myself up over and I guess that’s what makes you a better athlete; when you’re constantly criticizing your work. But when I watched that and there were some interviews backstage of what people felt about me and I was so flattered, I cannot tell you. I mean, we live, like, in a small bubble at work here and you don’t realize what live you touch, you don’t know. Because for us, it’s just we come to work, we do our thing, and go back to the hotel maybe work out and go on to the next town, you know what I mean? We are caught up in our own life and we forget, like, what we do and I didn’t realize people felt like that and I got teary-eyed. They interviewed a couple of my co-workers and what they thought of me and I had no idea they felt like that. So, I needed to hear that. It was a good ego boost for me, you know? Everyone needs a little bit of a compliment once and a while.”

On being such a strong female character on-screen and in the business : “It is a hard industry, and I’m not complaining. I love, love, love what I do for a living. I mean, I’m very blessed and I have a passion for this and I think it shows in my work. You have to be cut out to handle this sort of lifestyle. We are gone 250 days a year and this becomes our second family. People say, ‘Don’t neglect your family at home’; it’s unrealistic to say that, because the show much go on; there’s no excuses for missing a show here. It’s entertainment; we don’t have an offseason. We get Christmas off to spend with the family, but I think that’s why you don’t see a lot of females in this industry. I remember when I first got into it, maybe I had been in for about five years, and I’d see new girls come in and trying it out; like remember the Diva Search? I think they had a totally different image of what we did; I think they expected limos to pick us up at the airport, 5-star hotels but little do they know that three girls travel together maybe with a guy, hopefully a guy will travel with us, cause it’s a little dangerous out there; we’re not in rich areas all the time, you know? We’re independent contractors so we split costs; we all rent the same car and sometimes go three to four people in a room, it ends up becoming a really good time, don’t get me wrong. Occasionally, we will room by ourselves; that’s when we’re allowed to be like ‘I need some time to just be by myself’ and zone out in my own hotel room.

So, it’s a lonely road and you don’t cry. You just hurt a lot here; we’re actresses who do our own stunts and you get hurt and just don’t show it, it’s weird. In a normal lifestyle, like actors, if they get hurt, they pull you aside and are like ‘Oh I’m sorry, let me get ice on that’. For us, we don’t show pain, just because I don’t anyone to know that I’m hurt; that means I can’t wrestle the next match. Isn’t that weird? You just damage yourself more when you don’t say anything. It’s just a different lifestyle that we lead and I’ll be honest, if I had a daughter and she told me she wanted to be a wrestler, I don’t know if I’d be all gung-ho about it. I’ll be honest; that means I won’t see her 250 days out of the year and be on the road. You have to have thick skin for the business and I’m one the people that are very, very sensitive and I never got that thick skin. I don’t know what happened, but I’m very sensitive; you can ask anybody that I work with. They go ‘How are you still sensitive and still here?’ and I go ‘I don’t know’. It’s a tough industry but the tough survive. I’ve been doing it 13 years, gosh, I can’t believe it. I still feel like a rookie sometimes. It’s weird, it’s very weird.”

Being a trailblazer and working cage matches as a woman: “They’re scary, I’m not going to lie. I mean, imagine the ring without that cage and you stand on the turnbuckle, you know, when I do my moonsaults looking down, and you’re going to laugh but I have a fear of heights. Isn’t that crazy? And I look outside (the ring) and I go ‘Oh my god’ and you get that little tingly feeling because you’re so scared. And then imagine going to the top of the cage and looking down, to the outside it looks further, but again when you’re in this business; especially when I came to TNA, I talked a big game and said you’ll rarely find me saying no to anything. If you give me in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match, I’ll do it. You give me a cage match or a hardcore match, I’m game. I said, whatever you present to me, I will do the best I can and you won’t be disappointed. And, of course, what do they do, they put in them. Oh my god.”

On breaking her arm in the main event cage match with Mickie James: “It’s scary; with Mickie James, I tore my elbow in the end and it snapped back. I had Earl Hebner say ‘I’m ending it”; they were going to call the doctors and end the match and that was the main event, so I told him, and excuse my language, I told him to ‘f off’ in the ring and he goes ‘No, what’s wrong?’ and I go, ‘I think I broke my arm’. He said, ‘End it, end it; I’m ending it’ and I go ‘No, no. Don’t you dare!’ I’m main-eventing and you’ll have me get rolled up or something? The ending was she went to the top and ‘Theszed’ me from the top of the cage and I caught her and she rolled me up. And then as soon as they tell you, when the ref tells you ‘We’re dark; we’re off camera now’, that’s when my tears burst out. They told me ‘Stay down stay down’ because my arm was, you can see it on camera if you watch it back, it had a weird look to it. I tore my tendon and of course what do I saw when I come back to the agents and all my bosses and stuff? ‘I’m so sorry I hurt myself’ and they’re like ‘Are you serious?! You just got a standing ovation from the boy in the backstage. What other guy would have completed that?? You are tough.’ And I go ‘Yeah, but I hurt myself, I’m so sorry.’”

Tara was recently interviewed by Kevin Kellam of Examiner.com. Here are some highlights.

The feeling in TNA with IMPACT going on the road: "Our fans get spoiled and callused. They want to see us draw blood. In Orlando, thank god we are going on the road, our fans in Orlando got a little bit spoiled because they see us every week, but we were out there killing ourselves for entertainment. We are actresses and actors who do our stunts with drama. And when they don't react to certain things, it's like my God, what do you want me to do?!"

If it was becoming an issue in Orlando: "Not for like my bosses. It's just that we feed off the fans, we feed off their reactions. It becomes stale (without those reactions). And now we get to see fresh faces and that's why it's nice to go overseas too. I am just excited about going on the road, you have no idea. We don't want 'hush hush' fans. It's nice to hear everything, I have a problem where I can hear everything in the first couple rows. And if I hear someone cheering for my opponent. I am going to go out there and freaking tell them like it is. I am very fan-interactive. That's a big part of TNA."

Trish Stratus being inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame and if she will attend: "Oh she so deserves it! I am going to be honest with you, I wish I could induct her. I was in WWE. I am proud to be a part of WWE history, and now I am with TNA, there is no rivalry between companies for me. I love both companies but I am super proud of her, she deserves it for 'the Golden era'. She also reached out and called me and said thank you, you helped me be inducted because we had hellacious matches. That's a true professional, she appreciates who got her there. I would love to be there, but I don't know how both companies would feel. Honestly, I am super proud. I love her, we are best friends."

TNA just announced that they have released Tara. Here is the official statement from ImpactWrestling.com:

IMPACT Wrestling has released Tara. We thank Tara for all her contributions and wish her the best of success in the future.

In recent months, Tara had talked about not being on TV in the future, only to reappear so this isn't a big surprise.

More as we get it.

The Wrestling Observer published an interview with former TNA Knockout Tara. Here are some highlights from the interview.

On the current direction Women's wrestling is taking: "I like the direction that the Divas are heading. I also think there are a lot of talented females on the indy scene that could shine in TNA. I'm not sure that I understand what direction they are heading. They say never say never in this business. But I'm comfortable saying I will never return to TNA. I feel like I am still in peak physical condition. I still am able to have great matches. I would like to continue to wrestle, but my plate is full right now. We are looking at more locations for the restaurant. We are looking to expand our brand. I have an offer on the table outside of wrestling that I'm considering. There is also a group that has approached me about starting a wrestling organization. I am blessed to be in the position that I am in right now. I'm considering my next move, and for the time being, I won't be taking any more Indy appearances outside of those I've already committed to."

On her release from TNA: "It was a surprise to me. I went to TNA because I wanted to work with some of the great female wrestlers that I hadn't faced like Kong, ODB, and Sarita. TNA has definitely shifted their focus as far as the women's division. It was really my love of wrestling that kept me going. I didn't think it was the right fit for me anymore. My contract was up in a month or two. They knew I wasn't going to re-sign. First, they had the travel guy call me and tell me I was released. Then Dixie called me later that day and said that it was a financial thing, and they knew I was ready to jump ship anyway. I think the classy thing to do would have been to give me the opportunity to quit rather than getting released. But at the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted."

EDIT:

How is the restaurant business going?

LMV: Awesome and chaotic. As with any new business, we're still doing some fining tuning. But our staff is really coming together. We have received a great response from the community and are building up a solid customer base.

Tell me a little about the restaurant?

LMV: We are wrestling themed. We have a bunch of framed wrestling memorabilia, and we show as much wrestling as possible on our TVs. (WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor, Shimmer, lots of Indy stuff, you name it). We serve a great variety of brick oven pizza as well as about a dozen different stuffed burgers. We like to say that its all your guilty pleasures under one roof.

Let people know about your wrestling viewing parties at the restaurant and do you do them for other sports?

LMV: We show wrestling 7 days a week. Our WWE PPVs are insane! For Summerslam we had about five times as many people show up as we had room for. That was unfortunate. But it is an amazing environment to watch a PPV. The electricity and excitement is amazing! We also show Chicago sports and other major sporting events.

What did you learn most from your previous restaurant in Louisville?

LMV: That was more food focused. We definitely feel like we came in with a good foundation in that respect. Only now we have added an amazing experience to that. I'm so pleased with the way everything is going!

What are your thoughts regarding wrestling right now, how much do you want to do, do you want to continue full-time, part-time, interested in WWE this stage, going back to TNA at some point?

LMV: I like the direction that the Divas are heading. I also think there are a lot of talented females on the indy scene that could shine in TNA. I'm not sure that I understand what direction they are heading. They say never say never in this business. But I'm comfortable saying I will never return to TNA. I feel like I am still in peak physical condition. I still am able to have great matches. I would like to continue to wrestle, but my plate is full right now. We are looking at more locations for the restaurant. We are looking to expand our brand. I have an offer on the table outside of wrestling that I'm considering. There is also a group that has approached me about starting a wrestling organization. I am blessed to be in the position that I am in right now. I'm considering my next move, and for the time being, I won't be taking any more Indy appearances outside of those I've already committed to.

Is it difficult being around good food all the time to maintain dietary discipline? Is not being on TV most weeks going to relax your diet or is it a thing that has nothing to do with being a wrestling performer?

LMV: I don't have a super strict diet. I eat cheeseburgers 5 days a week. But i also eat lots of fruits and vegetables and lean meats. I 'cheat' in moderation. Plus I train like an elite athlete, so that allows me to indulge on the food side. I love to eat, and Chicago is a foodie town. I will continue to train like I have been. I never know what I'll feel like doing next, and I want to be prepared for it.

On leaving TNA, did you have advanced warning or was it a surprise and how was it handled?

LMV: It was a surprise to me. I went to TNA because I wanted to work with some of the great female wrestlers that i hadn't faced like Kong, ODB, and Sarita. TNA has definitely shifted their focus as far as the women's division. It was really my love of wrestling that kept me going. I didn't think it was the right fit for me anymore. My contract was up in a month or two. They knew I wasn't going to re-sign. First, they had the travel guy call me and tell me I was released. Then Dixie called me later that day and said that it was a financial thing, and they knew I was ready to jump ship anyway. I think the classy thing to do would have been to give me the opportunity to quit rather than getting released. But at the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted.

Best and worst things about TNA right now?

LMV: I dont want to mention worst things, but the best is that I think women like Brooke and Taryn have really blossomed as wrestlers.

Thoughts on the Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell matches, Mickie James new TV character?

LMV: Gail is always a fantastic performer, and those matches really highlight how far Taryn has progressed. Mickie is an amazing talent, and shines in anything she does.

How was working with Jessie Godderz and Robbie E?

LMV: So much fun! Did you need to ask? We had an amazing time. Those are two young charismatic guys who both can have long successful wrestling careers.

Former WWE and TNA star Lisa Marie Varon (aka Victoria, Tara) recently spoke about her recent departure from TNA and talked about in detail why she has no plans to ever return to the company. For those who may have missed it earlier, Varon said,

"TNA has definitely shifted their focus as far as the women’s division. It was really my love of wrestling that kept me going. I didn’t think it was the right fit for me anymore. My contract was up in a month or two. They knew I wasn’t going to re-sign. First, they had the travel guy (Bob Ryder) call me and tell me I was released. Then Dixie called me late that day and said it was a financial thing, and they knew I was ready to jump ship anyway. I think the classy thing to do would have been to give me the opportunity to quit rather than getting released. But at the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted. They say never say never in this business. But I’m comfortable saying I will never return to TNA."

Lisa Marie Varon who appeared as Victoria in WWE and TNA Wrestling, spoke to VOC Wrestling Nation to discuss her restaurant, "The Squared Circle," as well as other wrestling-related topics. Highlights from the interview are as follows:

On her new restaurant, “The Squared Circle”, opening in Chicago: “This is our third restaurant. We had one in Kentucky and one in Lombard, Ill; we sold both of those and ended up coming back to Chicago. It’s not just a pizza place; we do thin crust (Chicago style), we do brick oven, New York Style, and stuffed burgers. It’s a very, very unique menu.”

On the wrestling theme of her restaurant: “Our place is wrestling themed. I’m there every single night watching wrestling. I get to watch what I love, talk about my passion, eat awesome food, and mingle with the fans. Every night we have wrestling on and feature wrestling related guests. I even named a platter after Gail Kim.”

On her time in TNA and whether she would return: “TNA is out of the question. It wasn’t a good fit for me. I had a great run there, but it was very different from WWE. It made me appreciate WWE a lot.”

On her future in wrestling: “Never say never. I’m 42 and I’m still kicking ass and in better shape than when I was wrestling. It’s in my blood. I’m lucky that I live wrestling at my restaurant. I don’t think I’m done wrestling; I have a lot to give in terms of knowledge and helping other females.”

On working in front of the same crowd each week versus working on the road: “Its apples and oranges. I enjoy going on the road and working different towns. (At TNA) the audience wanted to get more camera time (than the talent). I ended up knowing most of the fans that went there in Orlando. Performing in Madison Square Garden is surreal. I hope some of the TNA talent that has never gotten to do that gets a chance to do it.”

On what’s missing with today’s female talent: “We had Fit Finlay as a trainer and agent. He made us and molded us. He got to know what made us tick, exposed that, and there was nothing we couldn’t do. Today, the girls pick and choose what moves they want to do. If Fit Finlay was around, that wouldn’t happen. We worked stiff. We made contact.
