Lisa Marie Varon recently took part in an exclusive interview with WrestleZone’s Kevin Kellam. Varon, known as Victoria or Tara by fans of WWE and TNA, is currently in the final year of her in-ring professional wrestling career as she has announced she will be retiring at the end of 2019.
Varon talked about the potential of her WWE Hall Of Fame induction, saying she’s done a lot in her career and it’s sometimes hard to remember everything until it’s brought up, but fan recognition is enough for her right now.
“I get that question all the time. When I hear it from the fans that I deserve it, that means I did my job. They were entertained by me and they appreciated my work, my ethic in the business and they’ve appreciated what I’ve done. That makes me feel good when I hear it from fans, and that’s all I really need.
It’s not my decision to be inducted into the Hall of Fame; we don’t call and say, ‘hey, it’s my turn.’ It’s not something we do. Or it’s ‘well, why don’t you go back?’ You don’t understand—we don’t pick up the phone and say we want to come back, you have to be invited. When that next time comes, it will be amazing, but when I hear it from the fans it’s enough right now. Getting a shout-out from Torrie Wilson—it’s nice, but it’s a hard question to answer because it sounds pompous to say ‘yeah, I deserve to be there’. At the same time, will it happen? I don’t know. It’s not my decision.”
