"I never watched wrestling. I didn't have cable growing up. I was pursuing acting in LA. and went to a house show and got backstage because the guy that I was dating was a huge wrestling fan. He was pointing out who everybody was. (...) One of the guys backstage asked me if I would like to walk out to the ring with Scott Steiner. I said, 'Sure. Why not?' It was kind of a love-at-first-sight thing. Feeling that crowd all around me was an awesome feeling," she said.

After a short stint in WCW, Wilson joined Vince McMahon's company in 2001. She spent nearly seven years as a regular competitor in WWE. The company then released her from her contract in 2008. Following her departure, she retired from professional wrestling.

I was asked to be a Barker's Beauty on 'The Price is Right' and I decided to take opportunities that were more suited to me at the time.
