The experience of teaming up with “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz in iMPACT Wrestling: “I love to manage. It is so much fun working and bouncing stuff off of each other, being goofy, and being able to entertain. At the same time, I can still wrestle. It also allows me to get my body a little bit of a rest while watching him wrestle. It is so much fun. I can’t express how much fun I’m having.”

Why she believes the current WWE Divas should not receive the criticism that they do: “It’s not their fault. They have some great talent over there (in the WWE), but you cannot tell a story in four minutes with two entrances. We’re lucky to have that much time on television to do it. I hope they get more time in the future, because they aren’t getting their opportunity.”

The direction of the TNA Knockouts division and where she sees things headed for the Knockouts in the new year: “I love where we are going. I think we’re going to see some new faces, new feuds, and maybe a new style of wrestling. We have an awesome creative department that are huge fans of the Knockouts division. You’ll be seeing a good year, honestly.”

Much more is contained in Tara’s interview with Monday Night Mayhem, including her candid thoughts on just how close she was to retiring from professional wrestling, her current reign as TNA Knockouts Champion, why she believes the future is very bright for her man in iMPACT Wrestling, what her fans can expect to see from the release of her new documentary (“Tarafied”), the overall state of women’s wrestling today, her fondest memories of working with Torrie Wilson & Trish Stratus (and how they played an instrumental part in her early career), her secret to staying in tremendous shape, the opening of her new restaurant in Chicago, plus so much more!
