Cindy Rogers is a retired American professional wrestler. She is known for performing on the independent circuit for World Xtreme Wrestling and Shimmer Women Athletes, among others.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Roger's career started after being trained in the Monster Factory with Larry Sharpe, at the advice of Sgt. Slaughter.[1][2] After competing for two years, Rogers won her first championship, the WXW Women's Championship, on July 11, 2003 after winning a battle royal.[2]

She has also become famous for her feud with Shimmer founder Allison Danger, as both have competed in several hardcore matches, one of which was most notably the first dog collar match in women's wrestling history, the latter of which was won by Rogers.[citation needed] She debuted in MXW Pro Wrestling in 2006, wrestling Mercedes Martinez in the first MXWomen's match. In 2008, she took time off in order to recuperate from an injury. Eventually, Rogers was forced to retire from professional wrestling due to her injuries. There was one very memorable match that Cindy had with Ariel. In this fight, Cindy grabbed Ariel by the hair. Then she dragged her across the mat by the hair. During this encounter, Cindy was wearing a pair of shiny black spandex tights. Her retirement match against Allison Danger took place on June 25, 2011.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Rogers works at a bank when she is not wrestling.[1] Additionally, she plays the drums and sings in her spare time.[1] Rogers is a huge fan of singer Elvis Presley and makes an annual Pilgrimage to Memphis, Tennessee every year for Elvis Week.[1]
