Rebecca Treston[1] (born February 3, 1982) better known by her ring name Rebecca "Becky" Bayless, is an American professional wrestler currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment she has worked for a number of major independent promotions, primarily Ring of Honor, Full Impact Pro, and SHIMMER Women Athletes. In the past she has worked for Combat Zone Wrestling and IWA Mid South, and currently wrestles for Women's Extreme Wrestling, Wrestling Superstars Unleashed, and Women Superstars Uncensored.

Career

Prior to her 2004 accident, Bayless was initially known as a valet for wrestlers, particularly Jimmy Jacobs, and mostly in CZW and IWA-Mid South, but occasionally wrestled for promotions. This includes during one 3-way Tag-Team match in Mid South where during a point when many wrestlers performed 'Dives' off an announce position, Bayless herself leaped on top of the participating wrestlers, including the ones she was managing, shortly followed by commentator Dave Prazak and the referee of the match.

Since her return, Bayless has had a long standing feud with Alicia in Wrestling Superstars Unleashed, and in their sister all-women's promotion Women Superstars Uncensored. This cumulated on September 22, 2007 with a loss in a No-DQ grudge match for the WSU Women's Title which was billed as Alicia's retirement match[2]. The next night Bayless and Alicia revealed that their 'feud' had been a plan between the two to make the other look good in the ring. Alicia attempted to hand her title to Bayless, but they were interrupted by Tammy Lynn Sytch who stopped their plan, and following an impromptu match Sytch won the title herself. Since then Bayless has feuded with Sytch, and also Dawn Marie and then Missy Hyatt who were brought in as managers/opponents against Bayless.

On the June 5, 2008 edition of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Impact, Bayless made a one-off appearance as a candidate for Awesome Kong's $25,000 Fan Challenge[2] along with fellow wrestlers Amber O'Neal, and Daffney who was picked for the challenge.

Ring of Honor

Bayless debuted in ROH in 2003 as part of the Special K stable as a valet. During her time she wrestled occasionally, including losses to Alexis Laree. The high point during this time was Bayless' involvement in the break-up of the stable in the later part of 2004. After a series of losses suffered by her teammates she began arguing with fellow stablemate Lacey. This ultimately leading to cat fights after matches, and eventually the break-up on ROH's December 4 show when after a 6-Man Tag-Team loss to 3 ROH wrestling school students, the team of Izzy, Deranged and Lacey turned on Dixie, Angel Dust and Bayless. Later in the month, December 26 the two sides would meet in a mixed Tag Match, where Bayless would be pinned by Lacey.[2] Following a severe automobile accident, this would be the last Bayless would be seen anywhere in wrestling for a number of years, and subsequently was written out of the storyline.

In 2007 Bayless returned to ROH and to pro wrestling at ROH's January 26 show, conducting an in-ring interview with the then new ROH World Champion Homicide[2]. Bayless has remained in this role as backstage and in-ring interviewer since then, regularly being seen on DVD releases in promos and interview segments, and on ROH VideoWire updates in the same roles. Despite ROH having women's matches on their cards, there is no sign that Bayless will be wrestling in ROH.

SHIMMER Women Athletes

In SHIMMER, a sister promotion to ROH, Bayless fulfilled the same on-camera role she has in ROH as an in-ring and backstage interviewer for the company, alongside Valerie Malone and Amber Gertner.

Full Impact Pro

Bayless was part of The YRR stable in FIP, in the role of a valet, but due to occasional appearances for the company she may or may not have left the stable or have been written out of it.
