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'm just grateful for the moments I got to spend with her. Both Moolah and Mae were an important part of my life in WWE, especially in my first couple years in the company as they were my biggest cheerleaders. They were always encouraging me and telling me they liked how I didn't 'wrestle like a girl'. She was an inspiration to me and so many of the girls in the locker room. I used to tell her 'Mae, I want to be just like you when I grow up'. I'm going to miss her a lot."
"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."
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.
Trish Stratus has signed a new deal with the Treadmill Factory, where the former WWE diva will see many of her fitness and yoga products being placed in a couple of their stores across Canada and on their official website.
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.
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.
