Shelly Martinez (born February 9, 1980) is an American professional wrestler and valet, and pin-up model. She worked for World Wrestling Entertainment on the ECW brand under the ring name Ariel. Her stage name outside of the WWE is Desire.


[edit] Career

[edit] Southern California

Martinez was trained and first wrestled in Southern California, appearing in several independent promotions; most notably Ultimate Pro Wrestling, Revolution Pro Wrestling, and Empire Wrestling Federation where she worked as the (kayfabe) sister of Melina. During her time in California, she worked as a glamour model and pin-up model. In 2004 Shelly posed nude for the website, which no longer exists. In those photos, she clearly had not obtained her implants yet.

[edit] World Wrestling Entertainment

[edit] Ohio Valley Wrestling

In April 2005, Martinez signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). By July of that year she was placed in their primary developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), for further training. Her first role there had her, along with Beth Phoenix, acting as co-manager for Aaron Stevens, but this threesome broke up within the year.

Martinez defeated Mickie James to win her debut singles match at an OVW house show on October 29. From there she engaged in numerous feuds with the likes of Beth Phoenix, Serena, Sosay, and Fuji Cakes. In late December, Martinez and Phoenix revived their "co-manager" gimmick to accompany Aaron Stevens to the ring at several WWE SmackDown! house shows for tryout matches. They also appeared together on the January 27, 2006 episode of WWE Heat as part of The Heart Throbs (Romeo Roselli and Antonio Thomas) "Throb-o-Meter" section, dancing in the ring with the team and teasing a kiss, before being interrupted by Trevor Murdoch.

At the February 22, 2006 OVW TV Tapings, Shelly came to ringside and attacked Sosay during an Elijah Burke vs Robbie Dawber match. Around this time she started a gimmick of being obsessed with Paul Burchill, who was using a pirate gimmick on SmackDown!. On the May 6, 2006 edition of WWE Velocity, Martinez appeared as Burchill's valet, "Buxom wench Shelly", for his match against The Road Warrior, but before she could become a permanent fixture the entire gimmick was dropped. Returning to OVW she became involved in Seth Skyfire's ongoing feud with Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and Roni Jonah.

[edit] ECW

Shelly Martinez as Ariel

When the ECW brand was launched Martinez joined on as Ariel, a tarot reading fortune teller. She was joined by Kevin Thorn, a vampire character who had previously been seen stalking ECW arenas, and announced that she "saw a future that held blood" followed by Thorn spitting blood at the camera. From there, she began acting as a valet for Thorn, joining him at ringside for his matches and kissing him during them. On September 19, she got into her first ECW catfight, rumbling with Francine who'd accompanied Balls Mahoney to ringside for a match against Thorn. Ariel made her (ECW) in-ring debut against Francine on September 26 in an "Extreme Catfight", which went to a no-contest due to interference from both Thorn and Mahoney. The building feud soon dropped when Francine was released from WWE just weeks later. When the ECW brand held its first pay per view, December to Dismember, Ariel and Thorn defeated Kelly Kelly and Mike Knox in a mixed tag team match. In February of 2007, Ariel along with Kevin Thorn joined the New Breed stable and engaged in a feud with their ECW Original foes. On the May 1, 2007 edition of ECW on Sci-Fi, Kevin Thorn & Ariel quit from The New Breed Faction after Elijah Burke yelled at them for losing to CM Punk earlier in the night. On May 18, 2007 Martinez was released from her WWE contract. She has since made an appearance for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
