Bonnie Maxon (born September 10, 1981) is an American professional wrestler best known by her ring name Rain or as Payton Banks in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. She formerly tag teamed with partner Lacey to form The Minnesota Home-Wrecking Crew (a play on the name of the Minnesota Wrecking Crew), but following Lacey's retirement, she teamed with British wrestler Jetta to form The International Home Wrecking Crew.


Professional wrestling career


Early career

Maxon started working for a local promotion, Steel Domain Wrestling (SDW) in St. Paul, Minnesota. Later after gaining the experience of a wrestler she started working for various promotions in the Midwest, such as IWA Mid-South, Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), NWA Midwest, Ring of Honor, Shimmer Women Athletes, and Women Extreme Wrestling under the ring name Rain.[1]

Shimmer Women Athletes (2005–present)

On November 6, 2005, Rain made her debut for Shimmer Women Athletes on the promotion's debut show, losing to Ariel.[1] She would pick up her first victory in the promotion on Volume 3, which was taped on February 12, 2006, defeating Nikki Roxx.[1] On May 21 on Volume 6 the team of Rain and Lacey, known collectively as The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew, made their Shimmer debut as a tag team, defeating Sara Del Rey and Mercedes Martinez.[1] After another tag team victory on Volume 8 against Cheerleader Melissa and MsChif,[1] Rain entered the Shimmer Championship tournament on Volume 11 on June 1, 2007, but was eliminated in the first round by Nikki Roxx.[1] The following day on Volume 13 the Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew would suffer its first loss in a match against Del Rey and Roxx.[1] On October 13 Rain and Lacey were joined by Jetta and together they would form the stable known as The International Home Wrecking Crew. In their debut match as a trio, they were defeated by Daizee Haze, MsChif and Eden Black.[1] On April 26, 2008, on Volume 18 Rain and Lacey were defeated by the team of Ashley Lane and Nevaeh.[1] This would mark the teams thus far final appearance together as later in the year Lacey announced her retirement.

Rain and Jetta kept on teaming together and on Volume 21, taped on October 19, 2008, they entered a gauntlet match to determine the first ever Shimmer Tag Team Champions. The team entered the match fourth and managed to eliminate Jennifer Blake and LuFisto, before being eliminated themselves by the eventual winners of the entire match, Ashley Lane and Nevaeh.[1] On Volume 23 Rain and Jetta faced Lane and Nevaeh in a two out of three falls for the teag team titles. During the match Lacey debuted as Rain and Jetta's new manager and helped them score the first fall. Lane and Nevaeh came to back to even the score, after Lacey's second interference backfired. Jetta scored the deciding fall after using a chain given to her by Lacey. However, after referee Bryce Remsburg found out that Jetta had cheated to win, he restarted the match and in the end Lane and Nevaeh managed to retain their gold.[6]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2007–2008)

Maxon appeared as a "plant" on the October 18, 2007 edition of Impact! holding up a huge white sign with black letters reading off "President of Robert Roode FanClub". She continued to appear in the crowd with pro-Roode signs for the following two weeks. She was officially referenced to on the November 1 edition of Impact! by TNA announcers, where she also had a staredown with Roode's former valet Ms. Brooks. In the aftermath of a match on an edition of Impact!, after Ms. Brooks and Roode defeated Chris Harris and Gail Kim, Brooks was about to leave the ring when she attacked and started a cat fight with Maxon.[1] Following the altercation, she was seen from far distances all around the TNA Impact Zone. She was referred as Ms. Brooks's stalker by TNA commentators Don West and Mike Tenay.

She then appeared on the January 10, 2008 edition of Impact! and attacked Brooks.[1] Subsequently, Roode announced that she had been replaced by Maxon, under the new name (Ms.) Peyton Banks (later tweaked to Payton Banks), resulting in a feud with Brooks and a match at Against All Odds where Brooks came out on top.[1] At Destination X, Banks was part of the "Stand By Your Man" Strap match, where she was in the corner of Roode, and Brooks was in the corner of Booker T.[1] The match stipulation dictated that the loser of the match would have their valet whipped with a strap.[1] Booker T lost the match, and Banks whipped Brooks with the leather strap until Brooks was saved by Booker's wife, Sharmell.[1] At Lockdown, Booker T and Sharmell defeated Roode and Banks in a mixed tag team match when Sharmell pinned Banks with a roll-up.[1] After the match Roode verbally abused Banks in the ring. Roode then prepared to hit her, but instead left her alone in the ring.[1] After her program with Roode ended, she left TNA.

Asistencia, Asesoría y Administración (2009–present)

On August 21, 2009, at Verano de Escandalo, Rain made her debut for Asistencia, Asesoría y Administración as a member of La Legión Extranjera, led by Konnan.[7] In the promotion she regularly teams with Jennifer Blake and valets Alex Koslov.
