Early professional wrestling career
Jacqueline was a professional wrestling fan as a child and began training under Skandor Akbar after she met him in a gym. She was the only female in his professional wrestling school, preparing her for a career in which she would often wrestle against men. She debuted in 1989 in the Texas-based World Class Championship Wrestling promotion as Sweet Georgia Brown.
United States Wrestling Association (1992-1996)
In 1992, Jacqueline moved on to the United States Wrestling Association in Memphis, Tennessee, where she was known as Miss Texas. She became a fixture in the women's division, which she would dominate for four years. She was the first ever USWA Women's Champion, winning the newly created title in a tournament on March 2 1992. She lost the title to Lauren Davenport on April 13 and regained the title on August 24. Feuding with Davenport, Moondog Fifi, and Leslie Belanger, she held the title two more times in 1992 and three times in 1993. Throughout 1993, she wrestled WWE Hall Of Famer Sensational Sherri Martel and Luna Vachon. She was out of the title picture for much of 1994, only winning the title once, on December 5, but enjoyed four more reigns in 1995. She held the title a thirteenth and fourteenth time in 1996 before losing her final USWA Women's Championship to Tasha Simone on November 4.
Smoky Mountain Wrestling (1995)
In November 1995, Jacqueline made five appearances with Smoky Mountain Wrestling in Kentucky and Tennessee as Sgt. Rock. She defeated Ron Davis in her debut match, then feuded with The Wolfman throughout the remainder of the month.
World Championship Wrestling (1997)
Jacqueline began submitting her resume to the Atlanta, Georgia-based World Championship Wrestling, and was eventually contacted by WCW employee James J. Dillon|J.J. Dillon, who offered her a contract. She debuted in WCW in January 1997 as the on-screen girlfriend of Kevin Sullivan, then feuding with his estranged wife, Woman, and her boyfriend, Chris Benoit. The two couples fought one another until Benoit defeated Sullivan in a retirement match. At Road Wild on August 9, Jacqueline became the valet of Harlem Heat. She later engaged in a brief feud with Glenn Gilberti (Disco Inferno), who she defeated in an upset victory at Halloween Havoc on October 26. Her contract was allowed to expire in 1998.
World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (1998-2004)
Jacqueline joined the World Wrestling Federation in mid-1998, debuting on the June 1 episode of RAW as the on-screen girlfriend of the heel Marc Mero and began a feud with then baby face, Sable, the estranged wife of Mero. After Jacqueline and Sable traded insults on several occasions, Jacqueline challenged Sable to a Bikini contest. The contest took place on July 26 at WWF Fully Loaded 1998, with Sable winning after she removed her halter top to reveal a painted on bikini top. However, the following evening on WWE Raw, WWF Chairman Vince McMahon disqualified Sable as "body paint does not constitute a bikini", and Jacqueline was declared the winner and given the trophy.
Sable recruited Luna Vachon and the other Oddities to fight Jacqueline for her, and they helped Luna pin Jacqueline on the August 10 episode of RAW. After the match, Sable gave the unconscious Jacqueline's trophy to Luna. Jacqueline demanded that the trophy be returned and faced Sable in an arm wrestling contest on the August 17 episode of RAW. During the contest, Jacqueline broke her grip and pushed the table into Sable's solar plexus, winding her and enabling Jacqueline to retrieve her trophy. Jacqueline then smashed the trophy over Sable's back. Jacqueline and Mero then teamed together to face Sable and a mystery opponent on August 30 at SummerSlam 1998. Sable's partner was revealed to be Edge, but he was sidelined for much of the match as Jacqueline dominated Sable, preventing her from tagging out. After Sable finally managed to tag Edge, he delivered the Downward Spiral to Mero and then placed Sable atop him, thus winning the match for himself and Sable and humiliating Mero by causing him to lose to his wife.
After Sable defeated Jacqueline in an Professional wrestling match types bra and panties match (evening gown match) on the September 14 episode of RAW, Jacqueline demanded a singles bout with Sable. The match aired on the September 21 episode of RAW. With the revived WWF Women's Championship on the line (the Women's Championship had been abandoned in January 1996), Jacqueline defeated Sable after Mero tripped Sable and held her foot down, preventing her from kicking out of Jacqueline's pin. Jacqueline and Sable continued to feud, and Jacqueline cut off Sable's ponytail on the October 5 episode of RAW. While Jacqueline enjoyed a strong run as champion, squashing challengers such as Starla Saxton (a.k.a. Molly Holly), Mero began to lose more and more frequently. On October 26, Sable challenged Jacqueline to a title match at Survivor Series (1998). With Shane McMahon acting as referee, Sable defeated Jacqueline to become the new WWF Women's Champion.
Jacqueline and Mero separated on the November 22 episode of Sunday Night HEAT, and the jilted Jacqueline formed a new stable of women known as the Pretty Mean Sisters (a pun on "Premenstrual syndrome") with Terri Runnels, who was separated from her husband, Dustin Rhodes (Goldus). During a match between Mero and Goldust on the November 23 episode of RAW, Jacqueline and Terri entered the ring and low-blowed both men.
In January, Terri claimed to have suffered a miscarriage after she was knocked of the ring apron by D'Lo Brown. The guilty Brown became a servant to PMS, who forced him to wrestle his friend, Mark Henry. The deception lasted until February 1, when the ringside doctor told Brown that Terri had not been pregnant. PMS then feuded with Brown by costing him matches and attacking his new manager, Ivory. Jacqueline returned to the women's division in March, and on the April 12 episode of RAW, she, Ivory, Tori, and Sable took part in a four way match for the Women's Championship. The match was declared a no-contest after Sable's bodyguard Nicole Bass stormed the ring and chokeslammed the three challengers.
PMS gained a "love slave" named Shawn Stasiak (Meat) in May. In the same month, the stable expanded once more to incorporate Ryan Shamrock, who had been spurned by the womanizing Val Venis. Shamrock left both the stable and the WWF in the following months, while Terri and Jacqueline assisted Meat in his matches. Tension began to grow between the two women as Terri (kayfabe) exhausted Meat with hours of sex before his matches and then berated her fatigued lover when he lacked the energy to win matches. Jacqueline left the stable after Terri forced Meat to kiss her feet on the August 1 episode of Sunday Night HEAT.
On the September 6 episode of RAW, Jacqueline faced the misogynistic Jeff Jarrett in advance of his WWE Intercontinental Championship match with Chyna. Jarrett squashed Jacqueline, choked her with the ring ropes, forced her to submit with the figure four leglock, and broke a guitar over her head.
Jacqueline soon returned to her pursuit of the Women's Championship, which she failed to win from Ivory in a three way hardcore match which also included Luna on November 18. On November 25, Jacqueline defeated Ivory in a "gravy bowl match" to win the Golden Ladle Trophy. At WWE Armageddon 1999 on December 12, she took part in a four way evening gown match for the Women's Championship but was stripped following a combined assault from her opponents, Ivory, Miss Kitty, and B.B.
Jacqueline won the WWF Women's Championship for a second time on February 1 by defeating Harvey Wippleman (who had won the belt from Miss Kitty while in drag and calling himself "Hervina") in a very short match. Her reign lasted throughout February and March, with Jacqueline defeating Ivory and Lita to retain the title. On March 28, she was challenged by Stephanie McMahon, and the inexperienced Stephanie defeated Jacqueline following extensive interference from D-Generation X.
Jacqueline's requests for a rematch were denied, and she lost a battle royal for the number one contendership to Lita. On the July 2 episode of Sunday Night HEAT, WWF Light Heavyweight Championship Dean Malenko challenged "anyone with enough manhood" to face him. After Jacqueline came to the ring, Malenko explained that he had said "manhood, not somebody from the hood." Jacqueline was granted a title shot, but submitted to Malenko's cloverleaf submission.
Throughout August and September, Jacqueline feuded with WWF Women's Champion Lita, aligning herself with Edge and Christian to counter the presence of Lita's constant companions, The Hardy Boyz. She received further title shots on October 9 and November 2, but failed to unseat Lita on both occasions.
The Acolytes Protection Agency (Ron Simmons aka Faarooq and John Layfield aka Bradshaw) recruited Jacqueline on the December 18 episode of RAW, asking her to take care of Trish Stratus while they fought Stratus' clients, T & A. In the resulting six person tag match, Jacqueline pinned Stratus. On the December 21 episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown!, Jacqueline challenged Right to Censor member Ivory to a title match. After the other members of RTC distracted Jacqueline and enabled Ivory to pin her, the APA repaid the favor by saving Jacqueline from a group beating after the match. The feud between the APA and RTC continued throughout early-2001 and culminated in a match at WrestleMania X-Seven on April 1, which pitted R.T.C. (Barry Buchanan aka Bull Buchanan, Charles Wright aka The Goodfather, and Val Venis) against The APA and Tazz. In the early stages of the match, Jacqueline DDT'ed Steven Richards, the leader of RTC who had accompanied them to ringside. RTC lost the match after Bradshaw pinned The Goodfather.
In mid-2001, Jacqueline, along with Tazz, Al Snow, and Tori, became a trainer on the MTV reality TV series WWE Tough Enough.
In late-2001, Jacqueline remained loyal to the WWF throughout The Invasion, feuding with The Alliance members Stacy Keibler, Torrie Wilson, Ivory, and Mighty Molly. She took part in the six pack challenge for the vacant WWF Women's Championship on November 18 at Survivor Series (2001), which was won by Trish Stratus. Several weeks later, Jacqueline challenged Trish for the title at Vengeance (2001). Jacqueline dominated the match but was surprised by a backslide pin, costing herself victory and another championship reign. Jacqueline and Trish shook hands before and after the match in a show of good sportsmanship.
In 2002, Jacqueline became a referee, with her debut match being a Women's Championship bout between Jazz and Trish Stratus at the Royal Rumble (2002). At WrestleMania X8, she refereed a match pitting Curt Hennig a.k.a Mr. Perfect, Lance Storm, and Andrew Martin aka Test against Scotty 2 Hotty, Matt Bloom, and Solofa Fatu aka Rikishi on the Sunday Night HEAT pre-show. Jacqueline wrestled infrequently throughout 2002, receiving several title shots, none of which were successful. In late 2002, she and Trish Stratus began a feud with Victoria and Jazz, which culminated in a four way match for the title at WWE Judgment Day 2003 on May 18, which Jazz won. She took part in a battle royal for the title on June 30, which was won by the debuting Gail Kim.
Jacqueline seldom appeared throughout late 2003 and early 2004, instead spending some of her time working as a trainer in Ohio Valley Wrestling; her last match on the RAW brand was a losing effort against Gail Kim in a November 2003 Heat match. On the May 6 2004 episode of SmackDown!, WWE Cruiserweight Championship Chavo Guerrero issued an open challenge for anyone to face him for his title, and Jacqueline answered. Jacqueline defeated Chavo in an upset victory. Jacqueline was defeated by Chavo's father, Chavo Classic, in a non-title match on the May 13 episode of SmackDown!, and on May 16 at WWE Judgment Day 2004. She lost the Cruiserweight Championship back to Chavo Guerrero, Jr. in a match where Chavo's arm was tied behind his back. A month later in June 2004, Jacqueline stated on her then official website, dragonjackie.com, that as of August 2004, her contract with World Wrestling Entertainment would not be renewed and therefore expire. No official statement was ever posted from WWE on their official website.
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2004-Present)
Jacqueline debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on the November 7 Victory Road 2004 pay-per-view, losing to Trinity. She made a second appearance with TNA on December 5 at Turning Point 2004, where she refereed a tag team match between Pat Kenney and Johnny B. Badd against Johnny Swinger and Glenn Gilberti.
In 2006, Jacqueline appeared at several TNA-branded house shows produced by the United Wrestling Federation. She returned to TNA at TNA Final Resolution 2007 on January 14 as Miss Tennessee eventually reverting to "The Pride of Tennessee" Jackie Moore (sometimes Ms. Jackie Moore as well), joining forces with James Storm by attacking his erstwhile manager, Gail Kim. Storm and Moore teamed up to defeat Kim and Petey Williams at both TNA Against All Odds 2007 and TNA Destination X 2007, with the latter being a "Rub and Tug" match. Moore was defeated by Kim at Lockdown 2007 in TNA's first women's steel cage match. Later, during a Street Fight with Gail Kim on TNA Impact!, Moore had her two front teeth knocked out of her mouth. At TNA Bound For Glory (2007) she participated in a 10 Knockout Gauntlet to crown the first TNA Women's Champion the gauntlet included Gail Kim, Awesome Kong Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, O.D.B, Roxxi Laveaux, Salinas, Traci Brooks & Christy Hemme. Jackie was eliminated by Awesome Kong. The match was eventually won by Gail Kim. Later TNA changed Jackie's in-ring name on the TNA website roster page, to Jacqueline the name she carried most of her wrestling career. At Lockdown, Jacqueline participated in the first ever "Queen of the Cage" match which was won by Roxxi Laveaux. At Sacrifice, Jacqueline participated in the first ever Knockouts "Make Over Battle Royal" which was won by Gail Kim.
Jacqueline would later go on to feuding with Latin American Exchange. She defeated Salinas by submission, then whipped her after the match.

- I was having a match against Gail Kim and one spot was putting a trash can over my head and body and picking up a broomstick and starting to bang it. One of the shots hit me right in the mouth and knocked both my teeth out.
