- Original TNA Knockout Desire, who worked as a valet for Sonny Siaki and had several matches with the likes of Trinity, will be appearing on NBC’s second season of The Biggest Loser.
The once fit wrestler is now 38 years old and weighs 252 lbs.
According to the show’s profile, she broke her back in a wrestling match six years ago: her career ended. She became pregnant with her third child, stopped exercising and started overeating.
In June 2003, she suffered an injury with severe damage to the L1 vertabrae in a dark match. She spent 10 months recovering before returning to television in April 2004. It’s not clear whether it really was the injury that caused her to retire, but it likely played a role.
“I may be headed straight into another project if the business end of things works out. If not, the Austin Clan will take a quick trip down to the Broken Skull Ranch for 10-14 days. Shawn Michaels and I have been trying to get together for a hunt for the last year and this could be the opportunity to get it done. Shawn has really taken to the outdoor world like a duck on a Junebug. Shawn’s show, MacMillan River Adventures has been a hit and when I spoke with Shawn in Las Vegas at the SHOT SHOW he was up for several awards. Shawn’s success is not a surprise to me. He’s extremely dedicated and motivated to be the best he can be at any endeavor he takes on in life. He is the greatest in ring performer I have ever seen. The fact that his talent and commitment transferred over from the squared circle to the world of hunting does not surprise me. Shawn has segued from being the “Show Stopper” to the “Game Stopper”. I’m proud of him and his success.”
