It looks like “Total Divas” won’t be the only reality show on television featuring female wrestlers. According to Wrestle View on Oct. 30, former WWE and TNA Wrestling star Lisa Marie Varon has taped a pilot for a new reality show.
Varon was former WWE women’s champion Victoria and former TNA Knockouts champion Tara. She most recently wrestled in TNA Impact Wrestling, but left when her contract came to an end. She said after leaving the company that she would never return to TNA but has not ruled out a return to professional wrestling.
She did make a sort of return last weekend at the Ring of Honor event “Glory by Honor XII” where she ran in after the Kevin Steen vs. Michael Elgin match and beat up former WWE Diva Maria. The two had an altercation leading up to the event at Varon’s Chicago restaurant, the Squared Circle.
That is where the new reality show will be based. The Squared Circle is a professional wrestling themed restaurant in Chicago that features memorabilia and occasional appearances from wrestling stars themselves. Varon shot material for the pilot episode at her restaurant and more will be shot over the next few weeks.
The pilot for the former WWE star is being developed by American Mass Media, the same company that developed the reality show “Hardcore Pawn: Chicago.”
