During an appearance on Cafe De Rene with Rene Dupree, Lisa Marie Varon (formerly Victoria in WWE and Tara in TNA) spoke about helping Christy Hemme train to be a professional wrestler.
“People were like, ‘she didn’t come from wrestling.’ I didn’t either. But I remember going to Vince and saying ‘Give me Christy Hemme. I’ll make her look good. You can make me look like an a**hole. I don’t care. Give me her. I’ll make her look like a million bucks. I don’t care what you do with me."
“Her and I would get to the house shows three hours earlier before our check in time. We would get there and work three hours in the ring. Get this: Ricky Steamboat, Arn Anderson, Fit Finlay, whoever the agents were, William Regal, Lance Storm, anybody, like all the boys started showing up three hours early because we’re learning from the freakin’ legends here. She worked her ass off.”
