World Wrestling Entertainment (2002-2006)Edit
Hiatus from Wrestling (2006-2008)Edit
Desert Side Wrestling (2008-present)Edit
Santos started Desert Side Wrestling in 2008 after getting the urge to wrestle again but not wanting to return to the “big stage” feeling that her time there was done.
To pay for her training, Santos would come to work as a burlesque dancer at a club in Las Vegas called Masquerade after working there as a bartender but having to both replace a co-worker during a show and increase her earnings to buy gear. Santos only agreed to perform because of the fact that all of the employees wore masks and used stage names.
