Former TNA Knockout Tara, who was known in WWE as Victoria, celebrated her 43rd birthday this week. She is now a restaurant owner in Chicago and throws quite a bit of events there for wrestling fans.
"There are so many Divas who have come and gone who have left their mark in WWE: Ivory, Jazz, Lita, etc. … Ric Flair says, "To be the man, you gotta beat the man," so if I had to choose one, it'd be the Diva who most people would consider the greatest Diva of all time, Trish Stratus. The only reason I'd choose her is because I know in my heart that I can put her down."
"I am ecstatic to hear the news about the WWE Network for many reasons. People don't come to The Squared Circle because they can't get WWE programming in their home. They come to The Squared Circle to share the experience with fellow wrestling fans. It's the reason a University of Michigan fan, for example, goes to a U of M bar to watch a U of M football game."
"That is probably my proudest accomplishment. While it is flattering when people say they want to grow up to be a wrestler because of me, I can appreciate and feel honor in that. However, it gives me the most joy when someone says that they were inspired by me to be them. I have pretty specific, quirky interests. I can enjoy talking with people who share similar interests with me, but what is far more attractive is someone knowing who they are. My whole life I have drawn inspiration from things so far removed from the events they actually inspired, but I think that's important. To find inspiration and drive in things you see and experience in life, but use those things not to copy or emulate, but to just be that little push or fire to give make you want to set out whatever is in your heart."
WWE held a live event in Chicago last night, so Tara, formerly known as Victoria, decided to attend the show and visit with friends and former coworkers backstage. There has been no talks about the veteran diva being brought back into the company.
WWE star Bray Wyatt broke character on Twitter to respond to a question from Tara about one of his tattoos.
Trish Stratus has enlisted the help of former WWE riva, Lita, to help promote her online store during Black Friday.
Through Twitter, Tara revealed that Kevin Nash is in Chicago this weekend and will be joining her at the restaurant tonight after his show.
Lita has been extremely quiet on Twitter since rumors sprung up in September about the former WWE diva being pregnant.
Former WWE and TNA star Tara is involved with a proposed soap opera called Tainted Dreams. She is playing a character named Carla Santiago, a parole officer.
Al Snow posted a picture of himself and former TNA knockout Tara on Twitter.
Prior to becoming a WWE star, Lita worked for several years as a roadie for a band.
