Biography

Early career

Adamo grew up in New York City. After growing up in the club scene and was heading for a modeling career, she opted to turn to a professional wrestling career.[4]

Extreme Championship Wrestling

Adamo adopted the stage name Elektra after working the Northeastern Independent circuit and eventually joining Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). She made her debut as a "gift" from Cyrus the Virus to Danny Doring.[4][2] After only a couple weeks, Adamo became the manager of Doring and Roadkill. She turned on them at Living Dangerously 2000, costing them a match against CW Anderson and Billy Wiles. After the match she joined The Network.[2] She worked alongside Lou E. Dangerously's Dangerous Alliance combined of Anderson and Wiles, proceeding to feud against Roadkill and Doring.[4]

On an episode of ECW on TNN in April 2000, Anderson and Wiles defeated Roadkill and Doring in which Adamo would have had to strip had Anderson and Wiles lost.[2] She moved on to feud with Jazz and at Hardcore Heaven had her shirt ripped off by Jazz.[2] She "lashed out" at Paul Heyman for not helping her when he had the chance, and stated that she would get revenge by forming an alliance with Lou.[4] Soon after Adamo would go on to manage fellow tag team Hot Commodity combined of ECW wrestlers Chris Hamrick, Julio Dinero and EZ Money.[1][2]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling

Again using the name Elektra, Adamo appeared in the second ever Total Nonstop Action Wrestling pay-per-view in June 2002. She competed in a Miss TNA Lingerie Battle Royal. She never won the match as Taylor Vaughn ripped off Elektra's PJs to win the match.[5][6][2] This was her only appearance in TNA.

Independents

After her NWA:TNA appearances, Adamo made an appearance at ECW One Night Stand in 2005, as a blonde, with rumours of her actually competing in the event.[7] She ended up not competing in the event; instead she had beer poured down her chest by The Sandman during his entrance.[1][8] She also made an appearance with the Supreme League of Wrestling promotion on June 16, 2007 under the name "Elektra Fine". She lost in a match against Paige Adams.[9]

Personal life

She was once married to Alex Rizzo.[10][11] Rizzo died in May 2002 at the age of 34.[12] She has a daughter from the marriage with Rizzo, born in 1990.[12] She made an appearance in the television series The Sopranos as one of the “Bada-Bing Girls”.[10] She has also appeared in Playboy.[10]
