Female of the Day

Introducing Nova, The Elite Athlete…

From Dowling, Ontario

Nov 2017 Spontaneously sent Rock Solid Wrestling (RSW) a message on Facebook to find somewhere to train

Winter 2018
Was contacted by Mark Bartolucci (Tornado), Sudbury,ON native & RSW owner. No ring in Sudbury. Very limited resources so we began by working on fundamentals in his basement (literally pushing aside the couch and placing down a bed mattress beside his television and hoping we don’t bust it)

Summer 2018
Commenced training @ Crossbody Pro Wrestling Academy in Kitchener, ON every few weekends where I got started in a ring. Trained by Ben Ortmanns and learned some larger fundamental stuff like the universal.

– Began small roles in RSW shows including hard cam, ring crew and manager spots in matches

Worked Slammiversary Impact Pay Per View 2018 as Su Yung’s undead bridesmaids

Oct 2018
Was introduced to Tyson Dux and met him for the odd one on one training

Jan 2019
Maxed out all annual leave at job for the year to move 6.5 hours away for one month and live in London, ON to receive consistent nightly class training with Tyson Dux and his students

(That is Mark Bartolucci’s former tag team partner in WWE). Dux also a trainer at the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando, FL.

End of March 2019 – Pro Wrestling debut with Smash Wrestling – known for their episodes on The Fight Network

2 weeks later in April 2019 – WWE flew me out to their Performance Centre in Orlando, FL for tryouts

Since then: Gaining as much experience I can begin regularly booked for Indy shows in Ontario and Quebec. Was still driving 5+ hours everywhere with no regular in-ring training to better myself… until November 2019.

I am now being trained by Impact’s “The Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander.
