Goodbye Victoria and Thank You

Christi LottCorrespondent IJanuary 17, 2009

In my previous article I wrote when Victoria's retirement was nothing more than a rumor, this was the last paragraph that I wrote:

"Although I'm sure that Victoria, as the only real Divas veteran, is fine with her place, many wrestling fans are not. She will most likely not get the sendoff Trish Stratus got, meaning no shot once more at the women's title—and, as long as Michelle McCool is running the show at SD!, no shot at the Diva's Title, though many believe she was the most obvious contender from its creation.

For me, Victoria is the most underrated and underused "Superstar" on the entire roster. Whenever the end comes, and apparently it's coming soon, she will not get the kudos she has always deserved, and probably never will."

This is probably the only time when I will hate to say "I told you so."

It was painful to actually witness and I personally was brought to tears while watching her speech. I didn't get this emotional about Trish or Lita. I think it's because Victoria truly deserved more and better in the past year.

This is going to be short and sweet:

To call Victoria underrated and underused is an understatement. The Divas division will miss her, and it will be obvious very soon. This woman did things and participated in matches that no one has done since, and for me, had the best finisher of all time. She will be terribly missed.

If this ever makes its way to her computer...

Victoria, you were more than a Diva; You were the best women's wrestler to ever step foot in the WWE ring. It will never be the same without you.

Thank You, Lisa Marie Varon, thank you.
