In the early 2000s, Moore worked as both a referee and trainer for the WWF, and she also held the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, which was a title predominately held by men. In 2004, she joined TNA, where she worked mostly as a manager and occasional wrestler.

Professional wrestling career

Early years (1989-1991)

Moore began her wrestling training at a local gym after meeting professional wrestling manager Skandar Akbar.[2][4] She was the only female in her professional wrestling school in Dallas.[1] She later made her in-ring debut as "Sweet Georgia Brown."[5] As Sweet Georgia Brown, Moore had wrestled in Japan for Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling, wrestling the likes of Megumi Kudo and Combat Toyoda.

United States Wrestling Association (1991-1996)

Moore later moved on to the United States Wrestling Association in Memphis, where she was known as Miss Texas.[6] She was the first ever USWA Women's Champion, winning the newly created title in a tournament on March 2, 1992.[6] Between March 1992 and August 1996, Moore held the title a total of eight times, swapping it with Lauren Davenport, Luna Vachon, and Debbie Combs.[6] She also competed in Herb Abrams's Universal Wrestling Federation, winning the promotion's women's title in 1994.[7]

World Championship Wrestling (1997-1998)

Moore began submitting pictures of herself to the Atlanta, Georgia-based World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and was eventually contacted by WCW employee J.J. Dillon, who offered her a contract.[4] She debuted in WCW as the manager of Kevin Sullivan, and she helped Sullivan by body slamming his opponents.[2] At Road Wild on August 9, Moore became the manager of Harlem Heat.[8] She later engaged in a brief feud with Disco Inferno, whom she defeated at Halloween Havoc on October 26.[9]

World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (1998-2004)

Feud with Sable; Pretty Mean Sisters (1998–1999)

Moore joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in mid-1998, debuting on the June 1 episode of Raw as the on-screen girlfriend of the villainous Marc Mero and began a feud with fan favorite, Sable, the estranged wife of Mero.[10] A bikini contest took place between the two women on July 26, 1998 at Fully Loaded, with Sable winning after she removed her halter top to reveal a painted on bikini top.[11] WWF Chairman Vince McMahon, however, disqualified Sable for not wearing a traditional bikini, and Moore was declared the winner.[12] Moore and Mero then teamed together to face Sable and a mystery opponent on August 30 at SummerSlam.[13] At the event, Sable's partner was revealed to be Edge, and the duo defeated Mero and Moore.[13] With the revived WWF Women's Championship on the line (the Women's Championship had been abandoned in December 1995),[14] Moore defeated Sable.[15] Later that month at Survivor Series, Sable defeated Moore to become the new WWF Women's Champion.[16]

Moore and Mero separated on the November 22 episode of Sunday Night Heat, and the jilted Moore formed a new alliance of women known as the Pretty Mean Sisters (PMS) with Terri Runnels, who was separated from her husband, Goldust.[17] They originally formed an alliance with D'Lo Brown and Mark Henry, accompanying them to the ring for a match against Val Venis and The Godfather in December at Rock Bottom: In Your House.[18] In May, however, the women had switched their allegiance to a wrestler named Meat.[19] As a part of the storyline, the women—with the addition of Ryan Shamrock—used Meat for his body, forcing him to have sex with them.[19] Moore, however, had left the alliance by July.[17]

Pursuit of the Women's Championship (1999–2001)

Moore won the WWF Women's Championship for a second time on February 1, 2000 by defeating Harvey Wippleman (who had won the belt from Miss Kitty while in drag and calling himself "Hervina") in a short match.[20] In March, she lost the title to Stephanie McMahon, an untrained wrestler, following extensive interference from D-Generation X.[21] Throughout August and September, Moore had a series of matches against then-Women's Champion Lita, which included a Hardcore match.[22]

Moore entering a WWE ring

In late-2001, she took part in the Six Pack Challenge for the vacant WWF Women's Championship on November 18 at Survivor Series, which was won by Trish Stratus.[23] Several weeks later, Moore challenged Stratus for the title at Vengeance.[24] Stratus won the match after surprising Moore with a backslide pin.[24]

Referee, trainer and departure (2002–2004)

In 2002, Moore became a referee, with her debut match being a Women's Championship bout between Jazz and Trish Stratus at the Royal Rumble.[25] Moore also wrestled infrequently throughout 2002, receiving several title shots, none of which were successful. In late 2002, she and Stratus began a feud with Victoria, leading to a Triple Threat match at Armageddon, in which Victoria retained the title.[26] In 2003, the return of Jazz culminated in a Four-Way match for Jazz's title at Judgment Day on May 18, 2003, which Jazz won.[27]

Moore seldom appeared throughout late 2003 and early 2004. Despite not appearing on television on a regular basis, however, in 2003 she was the first female to be included in the annual list of the 500 best wrestlers published by Pro Wrestling Illustrated.[28] On the May 6, 2004 episode of SmackDown!, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero issued an open challenge for anyone to face him for his title, and Moore defeated him to become the champion.[29] She lost the Cruiserweight Championship back to Guerrero at Judgment Day in a match where his arm was tied behind his back.[30] The company released Moore in June 2004 when the creative team could not come up with any storylines for her character.[4][21][31]

Independent circuit (2004–2005)

In June 2005, she had a match with the Independent Association of Wrestling (IAW) against Vanessa Harding.[1] On June 25, she defeated Harding and Krystal Carmichael to win the IAW Women's Championship.[10] In March 2006, she also competed in Mexico.[10]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2004, 2007–2009)

Moore debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on the November 7, 2004 Victory Road pay-per-view, losing to Trinity.[32] She made a second appearance with TNA on December 5 at Turning Point, where she refereed a tag team match between Pat Kenney and Johnny B. Badd against Johnny Swinger and Glenn Gilberti.[33]

She returned to TNA at Final Resolution on January 14, 2007, joining forces with James Storm by attacking his erstwhile manager, Gail Kim.[34] Storm and Moore teamed up to defeat Kim and Petey Williams at both Against All Odds and Destination X.[35][36] Moore, however, was defeated by Kim at Lockdown in TNA's first women's steel cage match.[37] Later, during a Street Fight with Kim on Impact!, Moore's two front teeth were knocked out of her mouth.[2] Throughout early and mid-2008, she continued to participate in women's matches, but failed to obtain the TNA Women's Championship. She then managed Beer Money, Inc. (Storm and Robert Roode), before being removed from television to work as a backstage agent.[38] On June 19, 2009 she returned to in-ring action, defeating Rhaka Khan at a house show in Grand Rapids, Michigan.[39] On July 12, 2009, however TNA parted ways with Moore.[40][41]

Personal life

Jacqueline Moore grew up in Dallas, Texas.[1][4] She was a fan of professional wrestling, and her favorite wrestlers were the Von Erichs.[4] She has a third degree black belt in taekwondo.[4] She also has experience in kickboxing and boxing.[4]

In mid-2001, Moore, along with Tazz, Al Snow, and Tori, became a trainer on the MTV reality TV series Tough Enough.[21] It was her first time training other wrestlers.[4][21] On the show, she helped train future WWE wrestlers Nidia and Maven.[42] In 2002, Moore competed on a special WWF superstar edition of Fear Factor, coming in second place to Matt Hardy.[43]

After leaving WWE, Moore began taking acting classes and was cast in the film Knight Fever, an action movie set in Los Angeles in the 1970s.[4][21] In the film, she played a character named Venus Jackson, who works as a detective.[21]
