Check out her work with Blayze at Summer Slam 94 for a hard-hitting divas match the likes of which we don't see anymore.She tossed the athletic Blayze around as if she were a rag doll.She portrayed an airhead who would often mix up her words for comedic effect.The act caught on enough that she eventually worked her way into an in-ring role.She debuted on Smack Down with her on-screen boyfriend Jamie Noble.The two were a solid act, and she soon began to feud with the classier Torrie Wilson.In the late '90s, they were no longer known simply as women, they became "divas." They had their own division, titles and storylines. Even though the term "diva" is fairly new for WWE, the contribution of women to the company goes back much further.
She took on her ex-boyfriend Noble in a blindfold match at No Way Out 2004, which Nidia lost.
A jump to Raw was the beginning of the end of her WWE career, as she was released a few months later.
Her abrupt departure is a bit of a mystery, as she was pretty decent in the ring and one of the best characters in the division.
The two started out as a surprisingly endearing couple until Tori grew increasingly paranoid and had Kane attack anyone who looked at her the wrong way.
In the ultimate act of betrayal, she broke up with The Big Red Machine to date his old friend-turned-nemesis X-Pac.
Though she placed fifth in the Diva Search contest, Maria was still hired by WWE.
