After a suggestion from a friend, James attended a professional wrestling school in the Washington, D.C. area.[15] She made her professional debut on the independent circuit in 1999 as a valet for KYDA Pro Wrestling under the ring name Alexis Laree, a name created as the result of a combination of her stage name from when she was a dancer and her middle name.[8][9][16] As Laree, she managed several male wrestlers, including managing Tommy Dreamer to win the KYDA Pro Heavyweight Championship.[11][17] In March, she wrestled in her first match, an intergender tag team match with Jake Damian against American Mike Brown and Candie.[11] She trained to improve her wrestling abilities by attending training camps such as the Funking Conservatory, a workshop run by Dory Funk, Jr., and an Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) dojo. She also started competing for Maryland Championship Wrestling, where she trained at camps run by Ricky Morton and Bobby Eaton.[8][11] Due to the low salary of the independent shows, James supplemented her income by working as a waitress at an Olive Garden restaurant,[6] and posing nude for the magazine Leg Show.[18]

After two years of sending tapes and making phone calls, as well as wrestling a tryout match with Dawn Marie, James was signed to a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), who sent her to train at Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), their farm territory, in August.[6][8][11][16] Still using the Alexis Laree name, she began making television appearances for OVW on January 29, 2004 and competed in several tag team matches throughout the year.[25][26] She also won a Halloween Costume Contest on October 30 and defeated Jillian Hall in a $1,000 match on November 12.[5][27]

[2][3]James at a Raw live eventJames debuted in WWE on the October 10, 2005 episode of Raw, continuing to use her real name, under the gimmick of WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus' biggest fan.[1][29][30] The angle had the two WWE Divas competing together in tag team matches, with James' character becoming increasingly obsessed with Stratus.[31][32][33] The storyline included a Halloween Costume Contest in which James was dressed like Stratus and helped Stratus retain the Women's Championship in a Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday by eliminating herself and Victoria at the same time.[34][35] She even began utilizing Stratus' signature finishing moves as her own during matches. James became the number one contender for the Women's Title on December 12 by defeating Victoria in a match to determine who would face Stratus at New Year's Revolution.[36] Subsequently, the storyline between James and Stratus developed into a lesbian angle after James had a kiss with Stratus under a sprig of mistletoe.[1][12][37] In the championship match at the pay-per-view, James lost to Stratus but continued to be enamored of her the next night on Raw, and she confessed her love for Stratus at the Royal Rumble.[12][38]

On March 6, 2006, the storyline had Stratus confronting James, telling her that they needed time apart from each other.[1][12][39] The duo teamed together at the March 18, 2006 episode of Saturday Night's Main Event to defeat Candice Michelle and Victoria. After the match, James agreed to honor Stratus' wishes and attempted to kiss her. After Stratus pushed her away, James attacked Stratus in the ring and later vowed to destroy her, establishing her heel turn.[1][12][40] The two wrestled each other at WrestleMania 22, where James won the match, and became the new Women's Champion.[41] Her angle with Stratus continued into Backlash during a rematch after Stratus legitimately dislocated her shoulder when James threw her out of the ring.[42][43]

[4][5]James and Jamie Noble at a Puerto Rican house showJames dropped the Women's Title on August 14 to Lita after Lita hit James with the title belt.[44] After the Women's Championship was vacated due to the retirement of Trish Stratus, James entered a tournament to determine the new champion.[45] She defeated Victoria and Melina in the qualifying rounds before making it to the finals at Cyber Sunday, where she lost to Lita.[43][45][46] The two Divas wrestled in a series of matches in which Lita chose stipulations to hinder James' wrestling ability.[47] The storyline feud ended at Survivor Series, where James defeated Lita, in a retirement match, to win her second Women's Championship.[48]

An angle was then created between James and Melina, beginning on January 29, 2007, when Melina became the number one contender for the Women's Title.[49][50] Following a successful title defense on February 5,[51] James teamed with Super Crazy in a mixed tag team match against Melina and Johnny Nitro. After Melina pinned James for the victory, she challenged her to a rematch for the title.[52] James dropped the Women's Championship to Melina on February 19 and, in continuation of their storyline feud, failed to regain the title during WWE's first women's Falls Count Anywhere match.[53][54] During the finish of the match James fell from the turnbuckle and landed on her neck, which resulted in a rushed finish. James, however, was not seriously injured.[55] James in 2007The scripted feud between James and Melina re-started on April 2 when James interrupted and attacked Melina during a photo op on Raw.[56] At a house show in Paris, France on April 24, James won her third Women's Championship during a Triple Threat match that also involved Victoria. Since James pinned Victoria, however, and not Melina, Jonathan Coachman announced that a rematch would take place immediately. James dropped the title back to Melina, giving her the shortest Women’s Championship reign in WWE history.[57] James later got rematch for the title at Backlash but was unsuccessful. After Backlash, James would make sporadic appearances on television wrestling occasionally in tag-matches and rarely in singles competition. On the November 26 episode of Raw, James defeated Melina in a number one contenders match for Beth Phoenix's Women's Championship,[58] setting up a title match between the two at Armageddon, a match in which Phoenix successfully defended her Women's title.

On the April 14, 2008 episode of Raw, held in London, James defeated Phoenix to win her fourth Women's Championship.[59] At Judgment Day James successfully defended her title against Melina and Beth Phoenix in a triple-threat match. James re-entered into a feud against Phoenix in mid year 2008 where she and Kofi Kingston teamed up against Phoenix and Santino Marella. At SummerSlam in a Winner Take All tag team match for both the Women's and Intercontinental Championships, James and Kingston lost their titles to Phoenix and Marella.[60] After James lost her Women's Championship, she had two rematches for the championship but was unsuccessful in regaining the title.[61][62]

The next week, after James defeat Layla, McCool gave James the name "Piggy James", that sent James to tears, resulting in a five-on-five elimination tag team match at the November pay-per-view event Survivor Series, where James' team prevailed over McCool's team.[71] On the December 3 episode of SmackDown, James became the number one contender for McCool's title by defeating Beth Phoenix and Natalya in a triple threat match.[72] The following week, James challenged McCool for the Women's Championship at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, but was unsuccessful after interference from Layla.[73] The storyline feud continued into the Royal Rumble on January 31, 2010 where James finally defeated McCool to win her fifth Women's Championship. Over the next couple of weeks, SmackDown consultant Vickie Guerrero was introduced into the rivalry, choosing to side with LayCool over James. On the February 26 episode of SmackDown, McCool used her rematch clause to face James for the Women's Championship, with Guerrero acting as special guest referee. After Guerrero slapped James in the face, McCool pinned her to regain the title.[74]

James' final match in WWE aired on the April 23 episode of SmackDown where she teamed with former rival Beth Phoenix against LayCool in a losing effort when she was pinned by Layla.[78] She was released from WWE one day earlier on April 22, having pre-taped her SmackDown match.[79] According to James, WWE explained the decision as due to desiring to move in a new direction with their women's division.[80]
