Career

Eubanks started wrestling in May 2003 as Special K. She had already been appearing as a manager since 2000. She was the manager of Ric Converse, who later became AWA Superstars World Champion. Converse, Vaine, Brad Attitude, and Brad Rains combined to form "The Dynasty" that dominated the CWF Mid Atlanic indy promotion for a year as a Four Horseman like group of heels. She feuded with Jenny Taylor and Amber O'Neal in the CWF. In 2004, she changed her name to "Krissy Vaine" and formed Team Blondage with O'Neal. Eubanks had a few tryouts for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on both SmackDown! and Raw but was never signed. Following her tryouts, Eubanks began working for several independent promotions, including the Professional Girl Wrestling Association, Women Extreme Wrestling, Memphis Wrestling, the National Wrestling Alliance and Shimmer Women Athletes.

World Wrestling Entertainment

In January 2006, she signed a developmental contract with WWE and was assigned to Deep South Wrestling. Eubanks made her first DSW appearance at the March 9, 2006 tapings where she and Kristal Marshall threw t-shirts into the crowd during intermission. Her official debut at the March 16 tapings was in the role of a female referee. She managed Kevin Matthews during his matches. Eubanks made her DSW in-ring debut on the June 22 tapings, where she defeated Tracy Taylor. During the match, the referee ignored pinfalls that Tracy attempted but quickly counted the falls that Eubanks did, as a result Tracy lost. On the June 27 tapings, Eubanks defeated the debuting Shantelle Taylor by grabbing the tights for the win.

At the October 12 tapings, Eubanks became the General Manager for DSW. In late 2006 and early 2007, she feuded with Angel Williams, with Angel claiming that Eubanks did something immoral to be appointed General Manager. Eubanks was tired of Williams and made her lose her matches by distractions from other Divas. She then tried to order around the other Divas (such as Nattie Neidhart, Brooke Adams and Shantelle Taylor) to take care of Williams for her. After they refused, she decided to try and make up with Angel. She and Angel then became the Co-General Managers of DSW before DSW shut down. She was then moved to WWE's newest developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling.

Vaine competing on SmackDown!

On the September 28, 2007 edition of SmackDown!, Eubanks made her WWE debut as a heel by attacking Torrie Wilson after Wilson lost a match to Victoria.

On October 10, both Eubanks and her boyfriend Ryan O'Reilly left WWE, as the rigorous schedule proved to be too much for them.

Return to the independent circuit

After a long term hiatus prior leaving the WWE and the wrestling business for over a year, it was announced that Eubanks decided to return to the wrestling industry and has reunited with her Team Blondage partner, Amber O'Neal.[2] They have now announced themselves to be dubbed Team Blondage 2.0.

In August 2009, Eubanks became a blogger for women's wrestling website Diva-Dirt.com.[3] In January 2010, Vaine launched her own podcast 'The Krissy Vaine Project' at Diva Dirt.[4]

In March 2010, Eubanks announced that she was no longer using the name "Krissy Vaine" which she had gone by for eight years. She revealed her new ring name as Kristin Astara.[5]
