Mini Bio (1)

Retired African-American female professional wrestler best known for her work in the USWA as Miss Texas and under her own first name for WCW in 1997 and for WWE from 1998 to 2004. After training under legendary heel manager General Skandor Akbar, she debuted for World Class Championship Wrestling as Sweet Georgia Brown. Changed her ring name to Miss Texas and competed under that name for years in Memphis. She broke ground by wrestling both women and men, and, in 1993, was the first woman to be ranked in "Pro Wrestling Illustrated" Magazine's "PWI 500" ranking of the best wrestlers in the world. During her time there, she was the inaugural USWA Women's Champion and would hold the title a record 14 times. She had a brief run in Jim Cornette's SMW as Sgt. Rock, a member of Cornette's Army. She also worked as Queen Moesha as a member of the USWA arm of the Nation of Domination. In February 1997, "The Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan brought her in to WCW as the final member of the Dungeon of Doom, as part of his feud with Chris Benoit and Sullivan's former wife Woman (Nancy Daus-Sullivan). In this role, her main function was to cheat relentlessly behind the referee's back by beating up Sullivan's opponents on the floor. The storyline behind her arrival was based on a supposed "relationship" between herself and Sullivan that was never explained. At "WCW Bash at the Beach 97," she turned on Sullivan by smashing a chair over his head, costing him his Career vs. Career match with Benoit, and sending him into retirement. (Sullivan continued to work in the office until he was pushed out by Kevin Nash in late 1998, though he would not have another match until "Starrcade 99.") After Disco Inferno defeated WCW World Television Champion Alex Wright for the title on the September 22, 1997 "WCW Monday Nitro," Jacqueline confronted Disco about a title shot, as Disco had left the company for a short time earlier in the year after refusing to lose a match to her. This led to Jacqueline defeating Disco in a non-title (due to how WCW wouldn't/couldn't sanction an intergender match for a title) match at "WCW Halloween Havoc 1997." Following in the tradition of her regularly losing her clothes in Memphis, Jackie suffered a nipple slip while executing a Side Russian Legsweep. Jackie disappeared for a time before arriving in WWE on the "Raw" after "WWF Over the Edge 1998." At that PPV, Marc Mero had defeated Sable, thus forcing Sable out of the company, though she was brought back soon after. Mero introduced Jackie as Sable's replacement, leading to the inevitable feud. At "WWF Fully Loaded 98," Jackie faced Sable in a Bikini Contest. Jackie actually wore a one-piece thong swimsuit, and, while dancing around, flashed her left breast on camera. Sable wore only a thong with hands painted on her breasts. Sable was declared the winner, but the decision was reversed the following night on "Raw." The feud continued, and WWE brought back the dormant WWE Women's Title for it. Jackie defeated Sable for the vacant title, becoming the first African-American wrestler to hold the title. Sable defeated Jackie for the belt at "Survivor Series 98." At the UK-only "WWF Capital Carnage" PPV, Sable and Christian defeated Mero and Jackie, in Mero's last match with the company. After the match, Jackie climbed on referee Tim White's shoulders and started punching away at him, and Sable pulled Jackie's shirt right off of her body, revealing that she was not wearing a bra. This was the first moment of out-and-out toplessness on PPV, predating Miss Kitty/the Kat celebrating winning the title by removing her bra and flashing her breasts at "WWF Armageddon 99" by a year. In the Fall, Jackie and Terri Runnels both rejected their men, Mero and Val Venis (Sean Morley) respectively, and formed Pretty Mean Sisters (PMS), based on the premise that they hated men. The duo added Ken Shamrock's "sister" Ryan Shamrock (Alicia Webb) and Meat (Shawn Stipich), who was essentially Runnels' sex slave, until he dropped the gimmick and renamed himself Shawn Stasiak. PMS went their separate ways in late 1999. On January 31, 2000, manager/referee/road agent Harvey Wippleman (Bruno Lauer) dressed up as "Harvina" and defeated the Kat for the Women's Title in a "Lumberjill Snowbunny Match." That Thursday on "SmackDown!," with all of the women complaining about Wippleman being the Champion, Jackie was chosen as his opponent. The match started with Harvey making sexist comments, then Jackie speared him, rained down several punches, slammed Harvey, dropped an elbow and pinned him for her second and final WWE Women's Title. She lost the title to Stephanie McMahon in March and never regained it. Jackie was pushed down the card, and reduced to working as a referee and as a trainer on "WWE Tough Enough" and at WWE's developmental promotion Ohio Valley Wrestling. On the May 6, 2004 "WWE SmackDown!," WWE Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero Jr. threw out an open challenge to defend the title against anyone, and Jackie responded. She proceeded to defeat Chavo for the belt, becoming the only woman to win the title in WWE (Madusa Miceli and Daffney Unger (Shannon Spruill) had both won it in WCW) and the only African-American wrestler to ever win the title (Lance Storm had awarded the title to Elix Skipper back in WCW in 2000 as part of the formation of Team Canada). In her last appearance, Jackie lost the title back to Chavo at "WWE Judgment Day." Jackie had a couple of runs in TNA, usually aligned with James Storm, before retiring. Along with her in-ring achievements, she is also a black belt in Tae Kwan Do. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.
