TNA Knockout - SoCal Val

SoCal Val

Do you know that SoCal Val has been with TNA since 2006?
And really...what have they done with her?

Valerie Elizabeth Wyndham is an American pro wrestling valet, better known by her ring name, SoCal Val.
SoCal was born on March 27th, 1986 in Beverly Hills, California and is currently signed to TNA Wrestling.

After she was "discovered" while attending a local wrestling event, Valerie debuted on March 30th, 2002 for the Golden State Championship Wrestling independent wrestling promotion as the manager of Pinoy Boy, who she promptly betrayed by berating him after he was defeated by Scott Lost and then leaving with Lost. She appeared for several other promotions in Southern California before her family moved across the country to Orlando, Florida when she was sixteen. Valerie developed the character of SoCal Val.

In addition to working for multiple independent promotions, Valerie has appeared with WWE, modelling a John Cena t-shirt on WWE.com and appearing on WWE SmackDown! as part of a vignette featuring Luther Reigns. She regularly appears with the Orlando based promotion TNA Wrestling, working variously as a ring girl, spokesmodel, merchandise model and interviewer. She appeared at the TNA No Surrender 2005 pay-per-view on July 17th, 2005 alongside ring announcer Jeremy Borash, and is currently an interviewer on TNA Global Impact!.

Valerie continues to work for promotions throughout Southern California, most prominently Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, where she was the commissioner at one point. It was there, when Joey Ryan Superkicked her in the face, she developed a fear of feet (kayfabe). This became a prominent feature in her storyline with Francine Fournier, while resulted in a Kiss My Foot Match which Valerie lost.

In August of 2006, SoCal Val officially signed with TNA, she will appear more frequently on television, and be involved in more storylines.
On August 18, 2006 So Cal Val got kicked out by the Women Extreme Wrestling promotion at their PPV Tapings event Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal.
On the December 14, 2006 episode of iMPACT, Kurt Angle dragged her in the ring and threatened to break her ankle until Jim Cornette talked him into letting her go.
On the March 8, 2007 episode of iMPACT, So Cal Val got injured after receiving the Black Hole Slam from Abyss.
From 2008 to 2009, she was the on-screen girlfriend of Jay Lethal and actually had a storyline.
In 2009 she was involved in an altercation between Awesome Kong and Tara.
In 2010, she began working as the ring announcer on TNA Xplosion.

I think Val may wind up being the "Lilian Garcia" of TNA.
