Heidi Lee Morgan (born June 29, 1967) the daughter of Lester Morgan, is a retired American professional wrestler who competed in the World Wrestling Federation, International World Class Championship Wrestling, Ladies Pro Wrestling Association, and National Wrestling Federation. She was also a member of the wrestling stable Team America.
Morgan began her career at the age of ten, under the name Daisy Mae, as the valet for her father Les Morgan. Several years later, Morgan pursued a career as a bodybuilder and was approached at an exhibition by Vince McMahon about a wrestling career. After deciding to join the family business, she was trained by The Fabulous Moolah, Wolfgang Von Heller and Johnny Rodz. After working on the independent circuit in North and South Carolina, she joined the National Wrestling Federation. As part of the Federation, Morgan feuded with Wendi Richter. She battled Richter, the NWF Women's Champion, in a first ever women's steel cage match in May 1987.
Morgan later held the LPWA Tag Team Championship with Misty Blue Simmes and the WWWA Ladies Championship during her career.
She also appeared in the World Wrestling Federation in late 1993 and into 1994, losing to Alundra Blayze in the finals of the tournament to determine a new WWF Women's Champion on December 13, 1993. In subsequent rematches, Blayze defended the title against her in house shows before Morgan and Blayze later teamed up to face Bull Nakano and Luna Vachon on WWF Sunday Night Slam and other televised shows.
After giving birth to her daughter, Morgan wanted to revive her wrestling career, but she broke her back in her first match back in the ring. She attempted an aerial maneuver, but she and her opponent lost their balance, which resulted in the break.
Her family owns a professional wrestling school called Ringmasters Wrestling School.
