Extreme Championship Wrestling (1996)

Kristina Laum made her debut in Extreme Championship Wrestling on January 27, 1996 as Raven's new valet under the name, Kimona Wanalaya (a play-on-words for "Come on, I wanna lay ya"). According to the storyline, Raven brought Kimona to replace Beulah McGillicutty, his former girlfriend and valent, who had announced that she was pregnant with Tommy Dreamer's child on January 7, 1996 at ECW's House Party PPV event.[1]

Kimona Wanalaya would often provide semi-sexual entertainment for the fans and she even performed a striptease at one ECW event in order to appease a rowdy crowd during a delay while the ring was being repaired.

While the feud between Raven, Tommy Dreamer, and Beulah continued on, Kimona Wanalaya would eventually play a much bigger role in this angle. On April 20, 1996 at ECW's Hostile City Showdown PPV event, Shane Douglas, with Kimona by his side, called out Dreamer to inform him that Beulah had been cheating on him. While Dreamer was wondering who the person could be, Kimona snatched the microphone from Douglas's hand and shouted "It's me!" Moments later, Beulah made her way to the ring and she and Kimona shared a racy kiss and fell to the mat together.

Jersey All Pro Wrestling

Laum later left ECW and worked for Jersey All Pro Wrestling for a while as Kimona. While in JAPW she wrestled Missy Hyatt in a series of mixed tag team matches and a steel cage match.

World Championship Wrestling (1999-2000)

She was signed by WCW in 1999, but they didn't know what to do with her for several months. She eventually debuted alongside The Varsity Club (Kevin Sullivan, Mike Rotunda and Rick Steiner) as the cheerleader, Leia Meow. She was forced to do pushups and to jump on a trampoline at ringside whenever they demanded it.

This angle soon ended and she became the manager for the Jung Dragons (Jamie-San, Yun Yang, and Kaz Hayashi). She would interfere in matches with a flying bodypress off of the top rope onto their opponents. She also had a dominatrix gimmick and carried a riding crop. She used it to attack Pamela Paulshock after Paulshock had won the "Miss WCW" contest that Meow participated in on September 25, 2000. She was then attacked by Midajah and had a brief rivalry with her leading to a fight on the following Thunder during Mike Awesome's Lava Lamp Lounge segment.

By the time WCW was sold to Vince McMahon, she had been fired from WCW along with the majority of the other on-air female talent due to roster cuts.

Independent circuit

She went to the X Wrestling Federation where she was a member of the X-Girls, a dance team that included Gorgeous George and Chiquita Anderson of the Nitro Girls. She was known as Kris during her time in XWF. When XWF folded, Kristina retired from wrestling.
