Biography for Lisa Moretti

Lisa Moretti (born Nov. 26, 1961 (58 years ago)) is an American professional wrestler. She is best known for her appearances with World Wrestling Entertainment (previously the World Wrestling Federation) between 1999 (20 years ago) and 2005 (14 years ago) under the ring name Ivory. Moretti, however, began her career in the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling professional wrestling promotion, where she wrestled as Tina Ferrari (95 walls) from the mid-to-late 1980 (39 years ago). She then debuted in the World Wrestling Federation in 1999 (20 years ago) as the manager for the team of Mark Henry and D'Lo Brown. She won the WWE Women's Championship twice before becoming a part of the Right to Censor, an alliance of wrestlers with conservative views, and winning the title for a third time.

In her later years with the company, she only wrestled sporadically. She did, however, co-host WWE Experience and act as a trainer on WWE Tough Enough. After being released in 2005 (14 years ago), she wrestled a few matches on the independent circuit, winning two other titles. She also began working in the landscaping industry and volunteering with her local animal shelter. In addition, she opened an animal and grooming facility named Downtown Dog in her home town in 2007 (12 years ago).

Career

Early career

In her youth, Lisa Moretti wrestled with her two brothers and sister. Later, while attending the University of Southern California, Moretti was—in her own words—"dragged by a friend" to an audition held by the newly-formed Las Vegas, Nevada-based Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). She was successful in her audition and went on to train under Mando Guerrero for six weeks, before beginning to wrestle in GLOW under the ring name Tina Ferrari. Moretti also formed a tag team with Ashley Cartier, known as T & A, with whom she won the GLOW Tag Team Championship. She also defeated Colonel Ninotchka to win the vacant GLOW Championship, represented by a crown. She later wrestled for the Powerful Women of Wrestling promotion under the ring names Nina and Tina Moretti, winning the POWW Championship.

World Wrestling Federation / Entertainment

In Mar. 1999 (20 years ago), Moretti returned to wrestling, signing a contract with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Her first appearance in WWF was accompanying the The Godfather, a "pimp"-character who was accompanied by women called "hos", to the ring. On the Feb. 13, 1999 (20 years ago) episode of Raw, however, Moretti was introduced as Ivory, the love interest of Mark Henry. Moretti acted as the valet for the tag team of Mark Henry and D'Lo Brown, Moretti made her televised WWF in-ring debut on the Feb. 15 episode of Raw, teaming with Brown to face Jeff Jarrett and Debra in an intergender tag team match that ended in a no-contest. Moretti faced Debra in a singles match on the Mar. 1 episode of Raw, defeating Debra by disqualification after she was attacked by the Pretty Mean Sisters (Jacqueline Moore and Terri Runnels). At WrestleMania XV on Mar. 28, Moretti accompanied D'Lo Brown and Test to the ring for their World Tag Team Championship title match against Jarrett and Owen Hart. Jarrett and Hart retained their title following interference from Moore, Runnels, and Debra.

During this time, the women in the WWF were known more for their appearances rather than their wrestling abilities, and featuring women in strip matches or farcical "slop matches"—a match that takes place in a pool full of slop—was common. Moretti, who was a trained wrestler, won the Women's Championship on Jun. 14, by defeating Debra and defended her title against Tori at SummerSlam on Aug. 22. Moretti continued to feud with Tori in the weeks following SummerSlam, defeating her in the first ever WWF women's hardcore match on sep. 6. Next, Moretti was challenged by Luna Vachon, who Moretti defeated in a farcical hardcore match at Unforgiven on sep. 26. SLAM! Wrestling called the match "pointless and senseless". In Oct. 1999 (20 years ago), Moretti feuded with the The Fabulous Moolah, who defeated her for the Women's Championship on Oct. 17, 1999 (20 years ago) at No Mercy in what John Powell of SLAM! Wrestling called the "worst match I've ever seen". She, however, defeated Moolah in a rematch on the Oct. 25 episode of Raw to win her second Women's Championship. Her second title reign ended with a loss to Miss Kitty, an un-trained wrestler, in a Four Corners Evening Gown Pool match—a match where a wrestler wins by stripping the evening gown off of her opponents—on dec. 12 at Armageddon.

Right to Censor (1999–2001)

In late 1999 (20 years ago), Moretti began playing a more conservative character. On Jan. 23, 2000 (19 years ago) at the Royal Rumble, she grudgingly took part in the "Miss Royal Rumble" swimsuit contest, which was won by Mae Young. She challenged Jacqueline for the Women's Championship on Mar. 9, but she was unsuccessful. After an absence, Moretti returned to WWF TV in sep. 2000 (19 years ago) as a member of an alliance of conservative wrestlers known as Right to Censor. The change in character saw her don less suggestive ring attire and more conservative hairstyles. Moretti quickly began a rivalry with Women's Champion Lita, winning the Women's Championship by defeating Lita, Jacqueline, and Trish Stratus in a Fatal Four-Way match. She retained the title against Lita at the Survivor Series on Nov. 19—with the assistance of Right to Censor leader Steven Richards—in a match that SLAM! Wrestling claimed "illustrated to what heights women's wrestling is capable of reaching in North America if the right talent is permitted to strut their stuff in a wrestling ring and not a pit full of jello." Moretti also retained her title in a Triple Threat match against Stratus and Molly Holly at Armageddon on dec. 10.

Ivory and the Right to Censor began feuding with Chyna after the latter posed for Playboy in late 2000 (19 years ago). On the dec. 7 episode of Raw, Moretti and Val Venis delivered a double-team piledriver to Chyna, which in storyline, injured her neck. Chyna challenged Moretti for the Women's Championship at the Royal Rumble on Jan. 21, 2001 (18 years ago). Moretti retained her title when she pinned Chyna, who had appeared to re-aggravate her neck injury. Chyna challenged Moretti for the title once more at WrestleMania X-Seven on Apr. 1 and defeated Moretti in a brief match, ending Moretti's third reign as Women's Champion. Right to Censor disbanded on Apr. 26, 2001 (18 years ago).

Sporadic appearances and departure (2001–2005)

Moretti returned to WWF TV on the Aug. 6 episode of Raw, joining The Alliance during The Invasion, a storyline where the former wrestlers of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling formed an alliance and "invaded" the WWF. Moretti formed an alliance with former WCW wrestlers Torrie Wilson (4 walls) and Stacy Keibler (59 walls) after helping them defeat Jacqueline in a handicap match, but she eventually became the valet for Lance Storm. At No Mercy, Moretti accompanied Storm and The Hurricane to the ring, but the Hardy Boyz defeated the two men to retain their WCW World Tag Team Championship. Moretti went on to compete in the women's division, and on Nov. 18 at the Survivor Series, she participated in a six-pack challenge for the vacant Women's Championship, which Trish Stratus won.

In early 2002 (17 years ago), Moretti served as a trainer in the second series of Tough Enough. After the World Wrestling Federation was renamed "World Wrestling Entertainment" and the roster was split into two "brands"—Raw and SmackDown!—Moretti was drafted to the SmackDown! brand. Along with several other SmackDown! wrestlers, Moretti was traded to Raw in exchange for The Big Show in Nov. 2002 (17 years ago). Throughout the remainder of 2002 (17 years ago), she teamed with Victoria and feuded with Trish Stratus.

Throughout 2003 (16 years ago), Moretti wrestled sporadically in the women's division. Her only pay-per-view appearance in the course of the year was on dec. 14 at Armageddon, where she unsuccessfully challenged Molly Holly for the Women's Championship. She also served as a trainer on the season three of Tough Enough and did broadcasting duties at WWE events. Moretti also spent eight weeks working as a trainer at the WWE developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling. In May of that year, she and Todd Grisham began hosting WWE Experience, a weekly TV show that recapped events from Raw and SmackDown!. On Jul. 22, 2005 (14 years ago), several weeks before WWE Experience ended in Aug. 2005 (14 years ago), WWE announced that Moretti's contract would not be renewed.

Independent circuit

Moretti began wrestling sporadically on the independent circuit under her own name. On Nov. 19, 2005 (14 years ago) in Spartanburg, South Carolina at "A Tribute to Starrcade", she teamed with Bambi to defeat Team Blondage (Krissy Vaine and Amber O'Neal) for the CCW Tag Team Championship. On Apr. 21, 2006 (13 years ago) in Surrey, British Columbia, Moretti defeated Rebecca Knox for Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW)'s NWA SuperGirls Championship. She also successfully retained her title in a match the following night. Afterward, she decided to stay with ECCW to help create a strong women's division. She held the title for approximately five months before losing it to Nattie Neidhart on Oct. 8, 2006 (13 years ago). By her own admission, Moretti enjoyed working on the independent circuit.

Personal life

Lisa Moretti was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She has three siblings: two brothers and one sister. She studied public relations at the University of Southern California, and she was a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Express of the United States Football League in the mid-1980s. Prior to beginning her career in wrestling, Moretti worked as a make-up artist for the cosmetics brand Revlon.

After leaving WWE, Moretti began working in the landscaping industry. Moretti also worked with her niece to help the pet population affected by Hurricane Katrina. In addition, Moretti volunteered for an organization called Best Friends Animal Society, which is a no-kill animal shelter—a shelter that does not euthanize to control animal populations—in Utah. She also worked with her local animal shelter on San Juan Island in northwestern Washington, where she has lived since 2000 (19 years ago). While working at the shelter, she met her eventual business partner Jessica Ray, with whom she opened Downtown Dog in 2007 (12 years ago). The facility is an animal daycare, as well as a training, grooming, and cat boarding company located in Friday Harbor. In Jun. 2007 (12 years ago), they expanded the business to include veterinary care and later the Bow Wow Bus, which takes the dogs on outings. Moretti has taken classes to learn how to groom animals and now grooms them as part of the business.
