Formerly Leon’s Ribs, The Squared Circle will accommodate approximately 48 patrons in addition to 15 seats in the bar area. Autographed wrestling memorabilia will adorn the walls and TV’s will showcase live sports including wrestling pay-per-views.

Varon’s husband Lee, will head up the kitchen which will include a custom-built brick oven.

"I could not be more excited about returning to chicago, and about bringing my concept to one of the greatest food cities in the world," explains Varon.

Varon is currently on board with TNA’s Impact Wrestling as “Tara” where she is one of their biggest stars and can be seen every Thursday night at Spike TV.

    Would this be part of the reason for losing the belt, besides that Velvet should have had it sooner.. Wonder too if she will be off tv for awhile to be at the new business till it gets going?

    • Tara posted on Facebook yesterday that she will be debuting a new look on Impact this week. This isn’t the first pizza joint she’s owned, so I’m sure she knows what to expect and how the whole thing comes together. Each business is different, but the basics are usually about the same.

        She and Lee had a Motorcycle detailing shop in Kentucky where they live(d) that was burned down by some disgruntled customer a few years back…and before was the other pizzeria they owned !!! What ever came of that ordeal w/ the Bike Shop arson ?!? Tara Aka Lisa Marie Varon is the Oldest KO in TNA , but The girl still got it , which is more than I can say for those D-I-V-A’s !!! Hope Mickie returns soon , and WISH that TNA/Impact Wrestling would either defend The Division’s TT titles or retire them , same goes for The TV Title !!! Can We All Say “Hogan/Bischoff=BIG F’n MISTAKE , Dixie” ?!?
