As reported earlier this week, Kim Couture got involved with a pro wrestling storyline during Sunday’s TNA Bound For Glory event. During a women’s title match, Couture got into an altercation in the crowd with Lisa Marie Varon – who wrestled in the WWE as Victoria and currently wrestles in TNA as Tara – who had been having a war of words with her in the media over the last couple of months. The incident wasn’t caught on camera by TNA nor was it acknowledged by the announcers.
Couture has spoken out about the incident, and insists that the incident was not planned.
“She turned around and came at me,” Couture explained to Fanhouse. “I’m not just going to stand there and look dumb. I didn’t know what she was going to do. So I kind of grabbed a hold of her, and it seems like as soon as we put our hands on each other security broke us up.”
Based on comments made by both women, the shove match started when Couture nudged Varon in the back. Varon thought it was a wrestling fan getting too physical with her so she lunged at Couture.
“I felt a shove behind me,” Varon stated. “At first I thought, ‘Was that a fan or what?’, because they’re not supposed to touch us at all. I turned around, because that doesn’t happen, and I just went after her. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?
“I’m a very friendly person, but you just don’t invade my space kind of thing. You just don’t put your hands on me.”
Both women were escorted to the back by security and stated that the incident will never make it to air on future TNA broadcasts. Varon called the incident “just a miscommunication”, and said she wasn’t happy about what happened.
“I’m a little embarrassed. I’ll be honest with you. I didn’t want that to happen,” she said.
Despite both women claiming that the incident was real, WrestlingINC.com is reporting that the entire episode is an angle and went as it was supposed to. The report states that TNA is apparently going to be doing some sort of match between Kim Couture and Tara, and that this whole thing has been in the works since the first time either of them made mention of each other.
As for Couture, she is gearing up to fight Kerry Vera, wife of UFC light heavyweight contender Brandon Vera, at a Strikeforce Challengers event on November 20, 2009. Randy Couture will face Brandon Vera a week earlier at UFC 105.
