The WWE has seen a number of superstars – both male and female – make returns to their squared circle after competing for a competitor in the past.
Indeed, the Royal Rumble event has been a Pay-Per-View in which many superstars have returned for one-off cameos, whereas the night after Wrestlemania has seen a number of big names make their return to the business – think Brock Lesnar’s return in 2012 when he beelined for former rival John Cena.
The WWE is full of talented individuals today that once worked for the company a number of years ago, with the likes of Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin, Paul Heyman, Jeff Hardy and Mickie James (with a plethora of others as well), and it seems one former Women’s Champion could be prepared to lace up her boots and get her in-ring gear on for the company in the future.
Lisa Marie Varon – who is probably better known as Victoria – was one of the most dominant female talents in the company during her original stint with the WWE, having won the WWE Women’s Championship twice and was involved in a plethora of storylines. Bettors can look to dominate their own competition in the gambling industry when they use the smarkets exchange, as they can look to bet against others in order to acquire some lucrative winnings!
She subsequently left the company in 2009 after a near-decade spell and joined rival organisation Total Non-Stop Action (TNA) where she competed under the ring name, Tara. However, having retired in 2019, it appears a year out of the ring has been tough for Victoria as she has admitted that she would be willing to make a return to the squared circle if the deal was right.
She said: “I would consider it. I would have to ask exactly what the details are. I’m not gonna go back and then just say as the girls going to the ring, “Hey, have a good match,” and that’s it, that’s my cameo. I’m not gonna go back for that. I would like to, what they say in the business, ‘get my s**t in a little bit.’ When I come in I don’t want to just be seen in the background just chit-chatting. I don’t want that. I would want to do something. I don’t have to win a match or anything like that. I don’t mind putting the girls over and stuff like that.”
It would seem as though she would be willing to do all the hard work in helping other talents to get over with fans, whilst also helping to make the women’s division as competitive as possible by teaching and coaching them. It is quite clear she does not want a backstage role in which she is seen as just an ‘extra’.
If Victoria does return and never say never, perhaps she will be able to acquire her place in the WWE’s Hall Of Fame; something many believe that is the least she deserves.
