Holly returned to the ring on May 16, 2004, adopting the ring name Amber O'Neal and the gimmick of a motocross racer.[1][3] She changed her name because of her respect for Nora Greenwald, who used the ringname Molly Holly.[5] Greenwald helped O'Neal in her tryout matches with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).[5]

In late 2004, O'Neal formed a tag team with Krissy Vaine known as Team Blondage.[1] The team wrestled primarily on the North Carolina independent circuit, appearing with promotions such as SHIMMER and Women's Extreme Wrestling.
