...
Lisa Marie Varon, née Lisa Marie Sole, better known as Victoria (born February 10, 1971 in San Bernadino, California) is an American professional wrestler currently working for the RAW brand of World Wrestling Entertainment.
...
Born to a Puerto Rican father and a Turkish mother, Lisa Marie Varon grew up with three older brothers, all of whom became amateur wrestlers. After studying Bio-Med at UCLA and Loma Linda University with thoughts of becoming a doctor, Varon worked as a Human Tissue Coordinator at the Inland Eye and Tissue Bank in Redlands, California, where she was heavily involved in the process of organ donation (she has stated that she would someday like to return to the field of organ donation.)
Varon later began pursuing a career in bodybuilding, fitness competition, modeling, and acting. She appeared on ESPN's Fitness America Series in 1997 and 1998, winning on the latter occasion, and had roles in V.I.P. and Nikki in May and October 2000 respectively. While in South Florida for the 1998 Miss Galaxy Competition, Varon met and befriended fellow fitness contestant Torrie Wilson.
...
The following year, Wilson signed a contract with the professional wrestling promotion World Championship Wrestling and invited Varon to a WCW television taping.
...
While visiting Wilson backstage at a WCW show, a road agent asked Varon to appear in a segment with Scott Hall.
...
Varon filmed the segment, which featured her sitting on Hall's lap and playing with his hair, and began considering pursuing a career in wrestling. After Wilson tried, unsuccessfully, to obtain a WCW contract for Varon, she returned to California in an attempt to secure work in the television industry.
While working for Crunch Fitness as a trainer in Los Angeles, California in 2000, Varon met World Wrestling Federation employee Chyna, who complemented her on her appearance and encouraged her to become a wrestler. Chyna introduced Varon to WWF officials Jim Ross and Kevin Kelly, and she was hired. Varon was assigned to Ultimate Pro Wrestling, a Southern Californian developmental territory and training camp of the WWF. While training in UPW, Varon was given the gimmick of a domineering cheerleader known as the H.B.I.C. (Head Bitch In Charge).
Like several other divas, Varon made her on-screen debut in the WWF as one of the Godfather's "hos" Victoria.
...
Varon, by now contracted as a wrestler, was sent to Memphis Championship Wrestling in Memphis, Tennessee, another WWF developmental territory. In MCW, she acted as commissioner for a time, managed Steve Bradley, and feuded with Stacy Carter and R.T.C. member Ivory. In 2001, with MCW closing, she was transferred to Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, Kentucky, where she trained under Molly Holly. Using the name Queen Victoria (named after the British monarch of the same name), Varon managed the "Machine" Doug Basham and the Damaja, later known collectively as the Basham Brothers.
After spending a considerable amount of time training in MCW and OVW, Varon returned to the renamed World Wrestling Entertainment on the July 7, 2002 episode of Sunday Night HEAT, losing to Trish Stratus.
...
However, instead of having surgery, Varon opted to wear a knee brace during matches, a practice she continues to this day.
...
The drastic character change was criticized by a number of fans who complained that it lacked an explanation and deprived Varon of a unique gimmick.
Victoria's face run began with a feud with then-Women's Champion Molly Holly. On the February 23, 2004 episode of RAW, Victoria won a four-way elimination match to capture the Women's Championship for a second time. Her feud with Holly reached its zenith at WrestleMania XX on March 14, 2004 , where Varon pinned Holly, who subsequently had her head shaved bald as a result of a stipulation of the match.
...
Due to these releases and the signing of women from the WWE Diva Search competitions, it was widely assumed that Varon would be released from the company.
