Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Wrestling Entertainment / WWE[edit]

Total Divas and NXT (2013–present)[edit]

In May 2013, Offerman was announced as part of WWE and E! Network's new reality show entitled Total Divas, which features behind the scenes footage of select WWE Divas and a look into their personal lives.[3][4]

Offerman made her main roster debut under the name "JoJo" on the June 26, 2013, episode of WWE Main Event, singing the entrance theme for Tons of Funk alongside The Funkadactyls (Cameron and Naomi). Her version of the song was later released on iTunes. The following week on Raw, JoJo was featured in a backstage segment also involving The Bella Twins, Natalya, The Funkadactyls, and Eva Marie.[5][6] On the July 22 episode of Raw, JoJo along with the cast of Total Divas appeared on Miz TV, where she introduced herself to the crowd.[7] JoJo sang the National anthem at Summerslam on August 18.

On the August 26 episode of Raw, JoJo served as the special guest ring announcer during a singles match between Natalya and Brie Bella. After the match, WWE Divas Champion, AJ Lee interrupted Brie Bella's victory celebration by cutting a worked shoot promo on the cast of Total Divas.[8] Following this, JoJo appeared at ringside to show support for her Total Divas co-stars during their matches. JoJo was booked in her first match on Raw on October 7, teaming with Natalya and Eva Marie in a winning effort against Alicia Fox, Rosa Mendes, and Aksana in a six diva tag-team match, however she was never tagged into the match.[9] The Total Divas defeated The True Divas (Alicia Fox, Aksana, Divas Champion AJ, Kaitlyn, Rosa Mendes, Tamina Snuka and Summer Rae) in a traditional survivor series elimination tag-team match at the Survivor Series pay-per-view[10][11] and on the following night on Raw.[12]

In late 2013, Offerman decided to focus on her training and moved to WWE's developmental territory NXT Wrestling. It was then confirmed she would not be returning to Total Divas for the second season.

Offerman was part of the main cast for the first season of the reality television show Total Divas produced by WWE and E!. The show began airing in July 2013.[13] Offerman was replaced by Summer Rae for the second season.[14][15]
