Lisa Marie Varon does it all….
Known now as WWE wrestler ‘Victoria’, Lisa is a former bodybuilder and IFBB pro fitness competitor who will add another feather to her cap – mixed martial arts fighting. Lisa has been with the WWE since 2000 after retiring from the competitive stage.
Lisa started as a bodybuilder, and won her first contest in 1995. She then switched to fitness, and earned her IFBB pro card at the 1999 NPC Team Universe.
Lisa Marie Varon is heading to the world of mixed martial arts.
Varon, perhaps better known as a World Wrestling Entertainment “diva” named Victoria, plans to make her pro MMA debut in the next year.
Despite Varon’s recent debut with WWE rival Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), Stewart said the nonrestrictive contract will allow his client to wrestle and compete in MMA simultaneously. (In fact, Lashley also recently signed a contract with TNA and debuted with the Spike TV-televised promotion back in April.)
While Varon is certainly marketable and athletic, she has one factor working against her: her age. At 38 years old, she will likely have a limited shelf life in MMA.
