She even fought in MMA in 2015 and 2017. This upcoming match would be her first in three years as the 37-year-old niece of The Barbarian has been in no kind of ring since the fall of 2017. The last time she wrestled, it was for Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling in 2017.

She participated in the Mae Young Classic in 2017, where she faced Ember Moon in a losing effort. WWE once featured her in a Spotlight video where she tried out for WWE and talked about her uncle’s influence on her life.
