Professional wrestling career

Before entering wrestling, Biggers played college basketball. She also played Division I volleyball at Florida State University [4]. She later began working as a model and entered the WWE Diva Search, but was eliminated during the top 25. World Wrestling Entertainment later expressed interest in Biggers and signed her to a developmental contract. She was assigned to Deep South Wrestling. Biggers trained with Marty Jannetty for two months prior to reporting to Deep South Wrestling.

Deep South Wrestling

Biggers debuted in World Wrestling Entertainment's Deep South Wrestling (DSW) as the valet of The Regulators. Later, she and Angel Williams began a feud with Kristal Marshall, Tracy Taylor, and Michelle McCool. On February 9, 2006, Biggers participated in a bikini contest; however, there was no winner due to an interruption by Palmer Canon. Biggers and Williams later accompanied Canon in a match against Tommy Dreamer, who had McCool, Taylor, and Marshall in his corner. On May 4, 2006, WWE released Biggers from her developmental contract.

Japan and the independent circuit

After WWE released Biggers from her developmental contract, she began wrestling for Japan's Pro Wrestling ZERO1-MAX promotion as "Panther Claw". She also worked for Florida's Full Impact Pro and Philadelphia's Women's Extreme Wrestling promotions. In Women's Extreme Wrestling, she worked under the name "Black Barbie".[5] For the Professional Girl Wrestling Association, she worked as Naomi Banks.

For a short time Biggers wrestled under the name "Trenesha" for underground female wrestling companies like Slammin' Ladies, Lady Victoria and Sleeperkid's World, adding to her fan base with various appearances in their clips and DVD releases.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2008-2009)

Biggers at Bound for Glory IV.

On February 10, 2008, Biggers made her Total Nonstop Action Wrestling debut at the Against All Odds pay-per-view. She distracted Petey Williams during his match against Scott Steiner, helping Steiner to win.[2] On the following edition of Impact!, Steiner introduced Biggers as "Rhaka Khan" (the moniker a homage to soul singer Chaka Khan). She later managed Petey Williams in his matches. She made her in-ring debut on the March 27, 2008 live edition of Impact! alongside Steiner and Williams against The Latin American Xchange (LAX) and Salinas. Her team lost after Homicide pinned Williams with a bridging T-Bone suplex. At Lockdown, she participated in the first ever "Queen of the Cage" match, which was won by Roxxi Laveaux. At Sacrifice, she participated in the first ever Knockouts "Make Over Battle Royal" won by Gail Kim. On the October 2, 2008, edition of Impact!, Rhaka Khan turned face and teamed up with ODB to defeat The Beautiful People. At Bound for Glory IV, she teamed with ODB and Rhino to defeat The Beautiful People and Cute Kip.

On the November 6 edition of Impact!, Khan once again turned villainous, aligning herself with Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed. The three of them were joined by Sojourner Bolt to form the stable known as Kongtourage, which began feuding with ODB, Christy Hemme, Taylor Wilde and Roxxi. On the February 26, 2009, edition of Impact! Khan and Bolt turned into fan favorites and defeated their former stable mates in a tag team match. In April 2009, both Rhaka Khan and Roxxi were suspended for 60 days (legit) after they got into a heated backstage altercation after Roxxi confronted Khan for working too stiff.[6][7] She returned as an active wrestler on June 19, 2009, losing to Jacqueline at a house show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She then appeared at another TNA house show in Johnson City, TN on July 17, 2009 and lost to Daffney after receiving a botched Northern lights suplex in which she was driven head first into the mat.[8] The match was quickly ended and Khan was helped from the ring. On October 1, 2009, Biggers was released from her TNA contract as her profile and her photos from the Knockouts section of the TNA website were removed.[9]

Global Championship Wrestling (2009, 2010)

In early 2009, Biggers made her debut in Global Championship Wrestling's Saturday Night Showdown as a security guard interfering in an altercation between first ever and at the time GCW Universal Heavyweight Champion Chris Harris and his rival at the time and number one contender to his title, Jack Evans. She came running down the entrnce ramp with a bunch of other security guards all getting into the ring to break up the fight that ensued between both men. After all the security guards got beaten out of the ring, Biggers stepped up to the male wrestlers and attacked them both, after a heated stare down between the three individuals. Biggers chokeslammed Jack Evans, and almost chokeslammed Chris Harris if it wasn't for him elbowing her to the back of the head. The following week on Saturday Night Showdown, Biggers made another appearence this time in the women's lockeroom chatting with GCW Ring Goddess Champion at the time Becky Bayless. Bayless asked Biggers (who was introduced later that night under her Naomi Banks name) if she wanted to be her bodyguard and associate. Naomi Banks agreed and later that night walked out to ring with the champion Bayless and yelled at the fans in attendance for being utterly repulsive and hard to look at, while Bayless watched in staisfaction, therefore both women becoming heels. As the weeks passed by, Banks interfered in matches involving Becky Bayless, some in which the Ring Goddess Championship were on the line. In the summer of 2009, after a few months of being Bayless's protector, Banks felt jealous of Bayless and wanted a title shot, therefore winning matches to finally become number one contender for Bayless's title. Then, the fued between the two ladies really heated up, when Becky Bayless attacked Banks in the lockeroom, thus remaining heel, and making Banks a face. Banks challenged Bayless to a match for her title on an episode of Saturday Night Showdown at the company's Holy Grail 2009 pay-per-view, in which she won her first title in the company. The following week on Showdown, she lost the title to a rematch against Bayless, however within a month won back the title in a Falls Count Anywhere match on an episode of Showdown in the main event. In October of 2009, GCW was starting to get tired of Banks on one of their shows, therefore releasing her from her contract after she made her last appearence on Saturday Night Showdown talking to General Manager at the time Mike Adamle and asking for her release due to her being more interested in modeling then pro wrestling. Adamle vacated the title that night and created a tournament to find someone to replace her as champion.

Biggers made her return to GCW when she returned at GCW's New Year's Bash pay-per-view on Sunday, January 3, 2010, to participate in the first-ever Past, Present, and Future Divas Battle Royal where the winner would become number one contender to the Ring Goddess and GCW Women's World Championships, but would come up short as the match was won by GCW veteran Jazz (12-time and current GCW Women's World Champion). Then it was reported in March of 2010, that Biggers has signed another contract with GCW, however this time making a switch over to Wednesday Night Revolution, where she will be debuting some time in 2010.
