According to an article by MMA Fanhouse, MMA fighter Kim Couture and TNA's Tara (Lisa Marie Varon) state that the recent altercation at the TNA Bound For Glory PPV was not staged. TNA had invited Couture to the event so that the two could continue their MMA feud and have a stare down in the middle of Tara's match. But since Couture arrived late (20-minutes before Varon's match started) there wasn't much time to plan it out properly. During the match, Tara was nudged and thought it was a fan, and it then became physical. Tara had the following comments:
"I think she didn't know what to do, but I felt a shove behind me. At first I thought, 'Was that a fan or what?', because they're not supposed to touch us at all. I turned around, because that doesn't happen, and I just went after her. I was like, 'Are you kidding me?'."
Couture also made the point to say that she was not entering into pro wrestling. The ladies cleared the air over the phone, but Couture did have words for Tara in regards to their war of words, which could lead to a possible MMA fight.
"I think it's funny that she hasn't even had an amateur fight yet, and she wants to call me out for her first fight. Normally, I'm pretty quiet, but I spoke up and said a few things over the past month. If she's crazy enough to get in there with me for her first fight, then great."
Note from Ryan Clark: The whole deal got absolutely no media attention so this may be a way of trying to get people interested. We'll see.
