On the topic of Wrestler’s Court, Lisa Marie shared her story. 

Joining Mickie James, Lisa Marie Varon and SoCal Val for an episode of GAW TV was former WWE writer and current S.V.P. of Development at Seven Bucks Productions, Brian Gewirtz. 

They hit on a number of subjects as their conversation rolled on including Wrestler’s Court. Lisa Marie shared her story of almost being the focus of a trial. She got out of it by bribing The Undertaker and J.B.L. with alcohol. 

Varon was on an Air Canada flight and at the time, she was in a feud with Trish Stratus. Stratus upgraded Varon’s seat to first class, but Varon didn’t feel comfortable as she felt she should offer the seat to someone who’s been in the business longer. She said they were on a flight with ‘all the boys’. One of the talents came up to her and asked how was first class. 

I was supposed to go to Wrestler’s Court. Trish (Stratus) and I had a big, huge angle at the beginning and she upgraded me. We were on Air Canada. She upgraded me to first class and this happened to be a plane with all the boys, all the boys and I’m like, ‘Trish, I don’t feel comfortable sitting up here.’ I go, ‘We’re supposed to offer our seat to the people that have been in the business longer than we have’ and she goes, ‘Well I already upgraded you. We can go over our match and stuff like that.’ So, one of the boys came up to me and says, ‘Hey, how was first class?’ And I go, ‘I didn’t know whether to piss off Trish who I have an angle with or the boys.’ I was caught in a big, bad scenario and I was supposed to be taken to court and someone says how you get out of court is you bribe J.B.L. and Undertaker… (I bribed them with) alcohol. Crown Royal and beer… Jack Daniels and I had freaking — I couldn’t even unload the freaking alcohol from my backseat. I bought (a) sh*t ton of sh*t.

Stratus paid homage to Varon at WWE Payback when she hit the ‘Widow’s Peak’ finisher on Becky Lynch. She reacted to it via her X account and heaped praise onto both Stratus and Lynch.
