Caryn Mower - WWF

Caryn Lynn Mower is a former professional wrestler and a stunt performer.
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 122lbs
Birthday: August 21, 1965
Birthplace: Eau claire, Wisconsin
Trained By: Ultimate Pro Wrestling
Professional Debut: 1999
Previous Identities: Carnidge, Muffy Mower

Prior to her stunt and wrestling career, Mower worked as an aerobics instructor. In 1992, she began her career as a stunt woman. She has an extensive resume of stunt work in television, film and stunt shows. She got her start in the wrestling world in early 1999 when she went on an audition for a part as a comic book model held at Ultimate Pro Wrestling, and was encouraged by the owner of UPW Rick Bassman to give wrestling a try. Mower accepted his offer and began training at UPW. She was considered a fast learner and soon became a regular performer at UPW shows.

In the summer of 1999, WWF talent scouts came to UPW to assess the talent there, and Mower impressed them enough to sign her to a developmental deal on August 31, 1999. She continued training with UPW and working shows with them until WWF came up with a gimmick for her. In early 2000, she was given a psycho fitness instructor "Muffy Mower" gimmick by the WWF and would come out before live WWF events for some non televised promo's where she would insult the live audience members, calling them fat and that they needed to get in shape.

In April 2000, she briefly made her television debut as Stephanie McMahon's personal trainer, but after two appearances the gimmick was shelved because of Stephanie's ego about not wanting to be seen as fat, and Mower returned to UPW. In September 2000, she was released from her WWF contract due to them not being able to come up with another gimmick for her.

She continued wrestling part time for UPW for a few years afterwards before retiring to pursue her stunt career full time.
