TNA: Christy Hemme, part 1

Born and raised in Temecula, CA,Christy Hemme is a hot! hot! hot! red-headed, vivacious, little bundle of sexuality, who was the winner of the first ever WWE Diva Search contest in September 2004. Due to her popularity with WWE fans/voters, she beat out 9 other fine looking women for a WWE contract and $250,000! (OWOW picked her to win from week one and made more than one or two phone calls to vote!)

Asked in an interview if she would rather be a manager/valet or a wrestler Christy replied "I would like to be put were I am most needed. I can see myself doing both, and I am interested in learning everything about the business. But man it would be a lot of fun to get in the ring and kick some butt!"

Discussing her Man Show TV stint Christy has said "The Man Show was a wonderful introduction to me for TV. It was great preperation for this show because it combined improv, silliness, being sexy, and just plain having fun! I love to work in an atmosphere that requires a group effort."

Besides her career highlights above she has also appeared in several music videos including Trace Atkins Crome video, Sonic's dance video, Blink 182's video, and Sugar Rays Snow adventure in Big Bear CA.

Hemme began her WWE career as a member of the RAW roster, using the song "Walk Idiot Walk" by The Hives as her entrance music. She quickly began a feud with Carmella DeCesare, the runner-up of the Diva Search. The feud culminated in a "lingerie pillow fight" at Taboo Tuesday 2004 on October 19, 2004, with Hemme defeating her opponent by knock-out. Hemme was undefeated in the Lingerie Pillow Fight during her WWE tenure.

Following her feud with DeCesare, Hemme began a rivalry with WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus, with Stratus ostensibly scornful of Hemme's appearance in the April 2005 issue of Playboy. Hemme eventually challenged Stratus to a match at WrestleMania 21, with Stratus's nemesis Lita training her in the weeks preceding the event. At WrestleMania 21 on April 3, 2005, Stratus defeated Hemme to retain her title. In the months after WrestleMania, Hemme began another feud with Victoria, who claimed to be jealous of the opportunities afforded to Hemme. The feud culminated in a bout at Vengeance 2005 on June 26, 2005, which was won by Victoria.
