In 1986 Lisa
Moretti made her wrestling debut on Gorgeous Ladies
of Wrestling (GLOW) as Tina Farrari, created by David
McLane. The show was filmed at the Riviera Hotel in
Las Vegas, Nevada and gained a cult following. There
Lisa Moretti won the GLOW tag-team championship with
partner; Ashley Cartier, and defeated Colonel Ninotchka
for the GLOW Championship. She later went on to wrestle
in David McLane's Powerful Women of Wrestling (POWW)
under the name "Nina," and in Ladies Professional Wrestling
Association (LPWA) as Tina Moretti. Lisa's wrestling
legacy continued years later in the World Wrestling
In an era where T&A seem to dominate,
Lisa Moretti aka Ivory managed to be the center of Women's
Wrestling in the WWF. Ivory made her WWE television
debut on February 13, 1999 as a Valentine's Day gift
to Mark Henry from his buddy D-Lo Brown. Her true purpose
however, was to be the opposition for the valet of the
World Tag Team Champions; Debra. That night, Debra and
Ivory got into a catfight, and a feud between both ladies
began. The next night on Sunday Night Heat, Ivory got
on the microphone, berating Debra, and fans got a first
taste of her now infamous mic skills that she has been
praised for over the years. During this period, Ivory
sparked feuds with PMS; Terri Runnels and Jacqueline,
and a few rough encounters with bodybuilder; Nicole
Bass. Her first spotlight match was on March 28, 1999,
in a pre WrestleMania XV bout, losing to Jacqueline.
Ivory has held the WWF Women's gold on 3 occasions and during those times the Women's Division always flourished. Her first Title reign in 1999 where she brought to the WWF Women's hardcore matches and even gave fans a history lesson when Ivory had a comical feud with the Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young.
After Sable left the WWE, the Women's title was in the hand of non-wrestler; Debra. Seeing that Debra and Ivory were no strangers to each other, it was no surprise that on 6/8/99, at a taping of Monday Night Raw, Ivory defeated Debra to win the Women's title.
She went on to feud with Tori (Terri Poch), and battled her on August 22, 1999 at Summer Slam 99, and also battled her in the first WWE Women's Hardcore match on September 6, 1999, on Monday Night Raw. Ivory also took on Luna Vachon in a Hardcore match on September 26, 1999 at the Unforgiven 99 Pay Per View. Ivory followed with another huge victory on October 2, 1999, Ivory defeated Tori, Luna Vachon, and Jackie at Rebellion 99 in Birmingham, England; however, Ivory lost the title to The Fabulous Moolah on October 17, 1999 at No Mercy 99. The match wouldn't be her best showing, considering the age of her opponent. Ivory however regained the title on October 25, 1999.
Ivory worked many title matches at house shows, but was also thrown in many T&A matches, which lead her to losing the title in a fluff match to non-wrestler; Miss Kitty, on December 12, 1999 at Armageddon 99. Ivory was not pinned to loss the title.
During Ivory's break as Women's champ she had the opportunity to host the WrestleMania all day long 2000 live special, in which she was highly praised for her commentary skills. Ivory continued to wrestling insignificant matches that year, seeing as Stephanie McMahon was champ, as well as job to the later Women's Champion, Lita.
Ivory soon after became the female member
of the Right to Censor faction, which was a tremendous
push. Her promo and microphone skills were put to use
as she had the opportunity to work promos with The Rock,
Chyna, and other top superstars at the time. In no time
she beat Lita to regain the women's strap and became
one of the biggest female heels in WWF history. Like
her prior title reigns, she sparked emotions on the
microphone where she received intense heat from the
crowds which created great leverage in her wrestling
After the Right to Censor angle ran its course, Ivory jumped to WCW in the Alliance vs. WWF storyline. After her very short angle in the WCW invasion, she went on to be a trainer on MTV's Tough Enough 2 and Tough Enough 3.
The Women's Division was then taken to another level in 2002 and 2003, and Ivory competed despite not recapturing the title during that period. Ivory seemed to be on a winning streak against Women's Champ at the time Jazz, on June 2nd 2003, June 9th, 2003, and June 16th 2003, with 3 wins on Raw, Ivory seemed to be on the road to becoming Women's Champ, the angle was seemingly dropped when Jazz became injured with a shoulder injury.
Soon after, she was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling, to train WWE development wrestlers. During this time, Ivory was involved in some controversy involving Bobbi Billard, a fitness model and former talent under David McLane's "Women of Wrestling," show as "Summer". When Bobbi was released from her WWE development contract, she accused Ivory of physical and verbal abuse during her training in Ohio Valley Wrestling.
She spent her last days in the WWE television as co-host
for a weekly television show recapping events from RAW
and SmackDown called WWE Experience, and as a WWE announcer.
After the WWE Experience was cancelled on in August
of 2005, the WWE decided that they would not renew her
contract. Despite this, she continued to wrestle on
the Indy circuit capturing the CCW Tag Team Championship
and the SuperGirls Championship.
