'''Katey Harvey''' is a professional wrestler, based primarily in her home country of Ireland. She made her debut in mid-2011 and soon became a recognisable character on the Irish indie scene. She initially managed a tag team called Rough Stuff (Bull Reilly and Paul Scarfe) and led them to win the Tag Team Championships, but soon branched out on her own. She has competed all around Europe and the UK in addition to Ireland. In 2015 she became the first ''ever'' Irish Women's Champion. She has also competed in (and won) respectively the first female: tag team match, triple threat match, Fatal 4 Way match. She and Danger Dawn were also the first women to wrestle in the main event of an Irish show in 2012.

She is a regular character at both Wrestling/CelticChampionshipWrestling and Over The Top Wrestling. Among the women she has wrestled - Wrestling/BeckyLynch, {{Wrestling/Melina}} and Nikki Cross.

!!Tropes:

* ActionGirl: In real life too. She's also trained in karate and works as a stunt woman.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Katey claimed she was the top woman in Ireland, and that was probably true. Until Alex Breslin made her return to wrestling.
* AmazonianBeauty: She's quite jacked but provides {{Fanservice}} in the ring. Underlined by her signature taunt - a hair flip followed by flexing her muscles.
* BadassBoast: If she's a heel, expect a lot of matches to open with this.
* BattleCouple: Occasionally with Phil Boyd.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In OTT she debuted doing a fitness gimmick with B-Cool. That was later re-tooled into The Gymnasties stable, while Katey appeared on her own with a more ruthless BloodKnight gimmick.
* CoolTeacher: She's also a trainer at FFPW, where she got her start.
* DanceBattler: Her face gimmick - a rave dancer.
* DarkIsEvil: Whenever she works heel, it's usually accompanied by dark coloured clothing and make-up. When she works face, her outfits tend to be more brightly coloured.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Her feuds often have a more personal agenda to them, and she seems desperate to prove she is the best, as opposed to mere love of violence.
* EffortlessAmazonianLift: In a match at CCW she blocked a crossbody from Kazza G, deadlifted her up and turned it into a Fallaway Slam.
* EvilWearsBlack: It's safe to say she's working as a heel if she wears black.
* {{Face}}: Her face character is a GenkiGirl usually merged with GentleGiant.
* FaceHeelTurn: During her debut match against Lasso Lucy, she entered as a friendly hand-shaking babyface and turned heel midway through the match.
* FanServicePack: She initially preferred to wrestle in a singlet, before upgrading to an outfit with BareYourMidriff.
* TheFightingNarcissist: The raison d'etre of Rough Stuff, since all three of them were this.
* FinishingMove: A Gory Bomb since 2012-ish.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel: She occasionally plays up the 'evil Irish girl' character when wrestling in the UK.
* GimmickMatches: She and Kazza G had a 'Hairspray On A Pole' match at CCW.
* GirlinessUpgrade: Inverted. Her initial gimmick was of a prissy AlphaBitch who blinded her opponents with hairspray. These days she's less overtly feminine in the ring.
* GirlishPigtails: Sports this look if she's a face.
* GirlyBruiser: She originally played this type of character, carrying a make-up bag to the ring and blinding her opponents with hairspray.
* HairContrastDuo: Especially pronounced when she feuded with Lucy Lasso. She was the evil, ruthless brunette versus Lucy's heroic wholesome blonde. Played straight again with Siren filling the blonde role.
* HairFlip: It's what she does as she enters the ring. It's a ShoutOut to {{Wrestling/Maryse}} - of whom she is a fan.
* {{Heel}}: Her heel character is usually an AlphaBitch and BoisterousBruiser.
* IHaveTheHighGround: When she works as a face, she usually busts out a top rope move.
* IKnowKarate: She used to do karate before a leg injury meant she had to stop.
* KickChick: She makes good use of them in matches, and tried to knock Siren out with a kick once in FFPW.
* LovelyAngels: She and Valkyrie team together quite a bit.
* MulticoloredHair: Has been known to add blonde into her hair from time to time.
* PurpleIsPowerful: She's color-coded with purple in a lot of her outfits. Usually if she's a {{Face}}.
* RapunzelHair: Was known for having long black hair that went down to her waist, before cutting it to shoulder length in 2016.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Her signature look. People don't say she looks like {{Wrestling/Paige}} for no reason.
* RedBaron: The First Lady of Irish Wrestling.
* TheRival: She and Kazza G for ages were the only two active women wrestling in Ireland, and have wrestled each other numerous times across the country. This came to a head in OTT where they feuded over the promotion's first Women's Championship.
* ShoutOut:
** In addition to the hair flip, she also does Maryse's signature hand taunt.
** Early in her career she did the splits on the ring apron, like {{Wrestling/Melina}}.
* SquashMatch: After a sneak attack on Martina, this was how she became OTT Women's Champion.
* StatuesqueStunner:
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl:
** The Tomboy to Siren's Girly Girl.
** The Girly Girl to Martina's Tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: Went from valet to first ever Irish Women's Champion.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: The set-up of Rough Stuff - Paul Scarfe, Bull Reilly and Katey.
* VillainTeamUp: In a triple threat match, Siren turned heel to help Katey take out Danger Dawn.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Pollyanna Peppers, with whom she's wrestled and teamed several times. They are good friends in real life however.
* WaifFu: If she's against a man who's larger than her.
