Stacy Keibler (born Stacy Ann-Marie Keibler October 14, 1979 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a Professional Wrestling personality-turned-actor, who got her start as a Baltimore Ravens cheerleader. She got her big break winning the WCW Nitro Girl Contest in 1999, and was one of the two women (the other being Torrie Wilson) brought to WWE upon WCW's buyout in 2001. It was there that she remained until appearing on season two of Dancing with the Stars in 2006.As usual, you can find the basics about her career at The Other Wiki.You'd probably remember her as George Clooney's girlfriend.Works she has appeared in:
Action Girl: Defied in 2002. WWE wanted to put the Women's title on her but she refused, stating she wasn't a wrestler and it wouldn't be fair to the other Divas (though that didn't stop her getting in the ring more frequently in 2004). Though this led to Stacy being forever typecast as the Faux Action Girl she didn't inevitably have to be, in the long run it was probably the wise decision to make, seeing how Maryse Ouellet got roasted for agreeing to be booked as the Divas' Champion.
During the Rico (w/Miss Jackie Gayda) vs. Rene Dupree (w/Rob Conway) match on the February 2, 2004 Raw, Stacy flashed her butt to Dupree, though with her face to the camera, leading to Rico winning the match. This was a followup to Jackie having flashed Conway, with her back to the camera, the week before. WWE was teasing a Playboy photo shoot featuring two Divas, as opposed to how the three previous ones (Sable in 1999, Chyna in 2000 and Torrie Wilson in 2003) had each featured only one. This led to the Sable/Torrie vs. Stacy/Jackie Playboy Evening Gown Match at WrestleMania XX.
Crossed with Green-Eyed Monster: In April 2003, Stacy was supposedly feeling rejected and jealous because of Test's interest in Torrie Wilson's Playboy issue. During the Test vs. Chris Jericho match on the April 14 Raw, Stacy largely ignored the match and instead played to the fans, even autographing a sign for one of them. She also walked up the ring steps and lifted the back of her skirt to show off her pink thong. Jericho won the match with the bulldog and the Lionsault.
Badass Princess: Or rather, Badass Duchess, as "The Duchess of Dudleyville."
Chickification: Maybe it wasn't to an extreme degree, but Stacy did go through her ups and downs (sadly, mostly downs) during her four-and-a-half years in WWE. When she came to WWE in the summer of 2001, she did so not as a Na´ve Newcomer but as a full-blooded member of the Alliance, Dark Action Girl, and someone at least modestly dangerous in the ring. Over the next year, she slid into decay as a Diva used mostly for Fanservice, and the year after that decayed still more as her Heel-Face Turn turned her Stupid Good and a prime target for all kinds of bullies, both male and female, both heel and face(!). She finally Took a Level in Badass in late 2004 and actually managed to win some matches and become Number One Contender to the Women's Championship. Then it was right back to Stupid Good Butt Monkey status for the rest of her career, especially when Randy Orton RKO'ed her in preparation for his WrestleMania match with The Undertaker.
Dance Battler: She trained extensively in jazz, tap and ballet dancing, and incorporated her training into her matches. The most notable example was with the Spinning Heel Kick, wherein she'd do almost a pirouette in spinning on one foot while clobbering her opponent with the other.
Everyone Is Related: Subverted during her stint with The Dudley Boys, as she was the only member to not carry the Dudley name. From 1995 to early 1997 in the original ECW, there had been a LOT of Dudleys.
During the "Wedding Gown" match between herself and Daffney Unger at WCW Bash at the Beach 2000, both David Flair and the referee had attempted to pull and keep the girls away from each other as they were fighting against one another from within a wild state and as the referee had tried his best to pull and keep her away from Daffney, she had instantly broken free from him and had soon got real upset with him as she had immediately kneed him in the groin, sending him down in a state of excruciating pain.
Hidden Depths: Along with Torrie Wilson, Sharmell Sullivan, and a number of other Faux Action Girls, a graduate (in June 2000, and one of the last) of WCW's notorious Power Plant, a pro-wrestling training facility so tough and grueling that it ended Bret Hart's career. note To clarify, Goldberg had been a graduate of the Power Plant. In a match with Hart, he kicked the "Hitman" in the neck so hard that it resulted in an injury that (temporarily) forced Hart to retire. Hart later blamed the Power Plant for not teaching its students to pull their punches.
Meaningful Name: In WCW, as Ms. Hancock. Being that Vince Russo doesn't believe in subtlety, he wanted to spell her last name Handcock, but that was rejected by both Turner Network execs and Stacy herself.
Lingerie Scene: The WWE Divas Undressed event and photo shoot, plus various other times in her career.
She's Got Legs: A given, since she used Kid Rock's cover of the Trope Namer as her theme music. She's 5'11, and 42" of that are her legs, meaning that her legs make up almost 60% of her overall height.
Mud Wrestling: This was basically the point of her character in Bubble Boy, and also participated in a particularly memorable one where she threw Trish Stratusoff the top of the stage.
Muscles Are Meaningless: She possessed surprising strength and stamina for a woman with a BMI (body-mass index) of only about 19 (borderline anexoric, even by non-wrestling standards) and once even bodyslammed Lita during a mixed tag-team match also featuring the Dudley Boyz and the Hardy Boyz.
At one point, she could actually press over 400 pounds when she did a leg press.
Once per Episode: EVERY time she was in a Bra and Panties match with Trish Stratus, the match would end with the following sequence: Stacy, who would be down to her bra, is standing on Trish's hair, leading to Trish headscissoring Stacy forward to pull down Stacy's shorts to win the match.
Took a Level in Badass: In late 2004, when she pinned Molly Holly in three separate matches (although she needed some help the third time), became Number One Contender to Trish Stratus' Women's Championship, and then entered a seven-Diva Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday and did better than anyone could have expected, making it more than two-thirds of the way through the match and being the longest-lasting face Diva left in the ring. Pretty impressive for someone who was consistently losing Bra and Panties matches just two years earlier.
