Leva Bates currently competes in AEW as The Librarian. She made her debut for the promotion at Fyter Fest where she lost a match to Allie. What you probably didn't know is that Bates also wrestled in NXT under the ring name 'Blue Pants'.

She originally appeared in WWE as one of Adam Rose's Rosebuds and went to compete in the Black and Gold brand as an enhancement talent despite not being signed to the company. Bates was popular with the fans, so it's quite surprising why WWE didn't sign her.

In AEW, she accompanies her beau Peter Avalon to the ring. Although their librarian gimmick isn't popular with fans, Bates is a talented performer and she proved that during her time in NXT. Besides WWE and AEW, she also competed in other notable wrestling promotions such as Shimmer Women Athletes and Impact Wrestling.
