Stacy Keibler was born on October 14, 1979, in Baltimore, Maryland. Before her involvement in wrestling, she was a cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens. In 1999, she entered a contest to become a WCW Nitro Girl. The Nitro Girls were a dance troop in WCW that would perform in the ring. They were used as a time-filler between matches and during commercial breaks. She won the contest and became known as Nitro Girl Skye.
Her talent was recognized immediately by the people in charge of WCW. She was removed from the Nitro Girls and became an on-air character known as Miss Hancock. The character was originally in charge of the standards and practices of the show. This was a spoof of the real problems WCW was having with the standards and practices department at Time Warner. A few months later, it was announced she was pregnant.
The End of WCW & New WWE Diva:
During the pregnancy angle, Stacy started to go by her birth name. There was tremendous turmoil in the company and the pregnancy angle was dropped. Soon afterwards, the company was sold to the WWE. As a WWE Diva, she was unique in that she was "natural". She flaunted her 42" legs instead of "enhanced" body parts. It has been rumored that she declined appearing in Playboy on several occasions.
A Few Angles in the WWE:
During her time in the WWE she was aligned with the Dudley Boys, Test, Scott Steiner, Randy Orton, and the tag team of the Hurricane & Rosey. Her in-ring career has consisted of goofy matches like lingerie pillow fights and bra & panties matches. In 2005, she was voted Internet Babe of the Year by the fans of the WWE.
In 2006, Stacy appeared on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. The show catapulted her to fame and when her WWE contract expired a few months later, she signed a deal with ABC Studios. She was also a part-owner of the American Basketball Association team the Hollywood Fame. For several years, she dated former 7th Heaven star Geoff Stults. In 2011, her name was linked romantically to George Clooney.
