Update: Backstage Heat Between 'Tara' & The Beautiful People
By Ryan Clark | May 05, 2010 |
As reported earlier, it has been indicated that Lisa Marie Varon (a/k/a Tara) has buried her peers behind their backs to management. Among the stories cited are reports of Varon complaining about various female wrestlers on house show tours, refusing to work with certain individuals altogether, and squashing numerous storylines — all of which she denies. For those curious as to who she is having these issues with, they are all three members of The Beautiful People — Madison Rayne, Velvet Sky and Lacey Von Erich. The root of the matter is that The Beautiful People have refused to take some of her moves not to mention that she doesn't respect their in-ring ability.
As noted, Varon took her issues directly to management rather than discussing the matter with the trio. When the group received word of this, they confronted Varon and told her they should have come to them rather than breaking locker room protocol by going to management. The friction was bad enough that when Varon was called in to work a recent house show loop, she specifically asked to work with ODB on the tour — who wasn't originally scheduled for the set of live events. Company officials complied with Varon's request due to Madison Rayne being unable to appear (note - there is a unique reason for Rayne's absence and it will be disclosed in a separate report).
Varon never had a reputation for being difficult to work with during her time in WWE and it should be noted that various sources have stated that she's been easy going for the most part during her time thus far in TNA. Furthermore, some feel the matter may be more of personality clash as opposed to one side being right and one side being wrong.
On a final note, Varon has been telling people that she hopes to return to WWE once her deal with TNA expires.
