One of the other guests coming to Shreveport for Geek'd Con this year is 7-time Women's World Champion Lisa Marie Varon. Known for time in WWE as Victoria, and for her career in TNA as Tara.

Varon is generally recognized as one of the greatest female wrestlers of a generation. In WWE, she was a 2-time Women's World Champion with a combined 244 days as champion. That's one of the longest combined reigns in WWE history.
During her first run in WWE, Varon was named the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Woman of the Year in 2004, and ranked at inside the PWI Female 50 multiple times. In 2008 she ranked #12, and in 2009 she ranked as #5.
The WWE Network named her as one of the Top 50 Female Performers in the history of the WWE.
After her first WWE tenure, she moved to Total Nonstop Action (TNA) where she adopted the in-ring name of Tara. While with TNA, Varon won 5 TNA Knockouts Championships, and on Tag-Team Championship. She also continued to rank as one of the top females in wrestling, landing on the PWI Female 50 even more. In 2010 she ranked at #11, in 2011 she came in at #8, in 2012 she ranked at #10, and in 2013 she was #8 on the list.
Before her wrestling career, Varon was a successful competitive cheerleader, and fitness champion.
She was named a National Cheerleading Association All-American while in high school. After she attended UCLA, she started competing in bodybuilding and fitness competitions. She competed in ESPN2's Fitness America Series in 1997 and 1998, placing 2nd in 1998, and she won the competition in 1997.
Varon placed in multiple different fitness events, including the 1995 National Physique Committee Inland Empire competition (1st place), the 1999 Debbie Kruck Fitness Classic (1st place, tall), the 1998 Ironwoman Tri-Fitness competition (4th place), and she was named to the Ironwoman Tri-Fitness Hall of Fame in 2012.
In recent years, Varon has returned to the ring in both WWE and TNA. She entered the 2021 Women's Royal Rumble at spot #10, which was her first WWE appearance in over a decade. She was eventually the 5th person eliminated from the match. Then in 2023, Varon brought Tara back to TNA (Impact Wrestling) at the 2023 Hard to Kill PPV event. She came back to the ring later that month to team with Gisele Shaw to challenge for the Knockouts Tag Team Championships.
Come meet Varon with GTCollectibles Saturday and Sunday of Geek'd Con 2024
