Professional wrestling career[edit]

New England Championship Wrestling / World Women's Wrestling (2006–2013)[edit]

Edwards debuted in May 2006, at a joint New England Championship Wrestling (NECW) and World Women's Wrestling (WWW) show on May 7, defeating Mia Love.[4] Over the next few weeks, she lost to Tanya Lee, but defeated Della Morte.[5][6] This win however, would prove to be her last in 2006, as she lost to Tanya Lee, Kacee Carlisle by disqualification, Portia Perez, and Alicia.[7][8][9][10][11] On January 27, 2007, at NECW's SnowBrawl show, she challenged Tanya Lee for the World Women's Wrestling Championship, but was unsuccessful.[12] She broke her losing streak at the NECW/WWW show, Pick you Poison, on February 25, when she defeated Portia Perez.[13] At the NECW/WWW 1st Anniversary Spectacular show on March 25, Edwards defeated Mistress Belmont, who was accompanied by Della Morte. After the match, Morte attacked Edwards, and attempted to burn her with a curling iron, but Ariel saved her.[14]

Edwards then began challenging for the World Women's Wrestling Championship, defeating the championship Tanya Lee on two separate occasions in non-title matches.[15][16] When she gained an opportunity to win the championship at the Double Intensity event, however, she was unsuccessful.[17] On August 12, Edwards competed in two matches at a NECW/WWW show. In the first, she lost to Tanya Lee by disqualification in a singles match. In the second, however, she won the championship in a four-way match, defeating Tanya Lee, Natalia and Jana on August 12, 2007.[7][18][19] She successfully defended the championship against Tanya Lee, Ariel, Mistress Belmont and Sammi Lane.[20][21][22][23] She lost the championship to Ariel on March 9, 2009, after holding it for a year and a half.[18] She regained the title from Ariel after defeating 10 top WWW stars first to get the title shot. She lost it to Mistress Belmont, who lost it to Edwards on August 8, 2010 in a steel cage match.

New England Championship Wrestling returned in May 2011 with A Fight For Alex 2 and in their first show back, Edwards was successful in defending her World Women's Wrestling Championship against Mistress Belmont.[24] Later in that year, at The Fight Before Christmas, she successfully defended her WWW Championship again against Adrianna this time.[25] Edwards would go on to face Adrianna several more times in 2012, became embroiled in a heated feud with Adrianna that would last a whole year and culminate in a "Taped Fist" match at NECW's December event in 2012, Unwrapped in Blackstone, MA. Edwards defeated Adrianna yet again and would move on to other challenges.[26]

In 2013, Edwards had her hands full with longtime rival Mistress Belmont as well as the returning Nikki Valentine to NECW. Edwards would successfully defeat each over the course of that year. It would either be Edwards involved in a match with one of them, or her partner and ally Kasey Ray. Often doing so via disqualification after Mistress Belmont or Nikki Valentine would receive a mysterious package at ringside or left under the ring containing various weapons such as a steel chain, whip, or even brass knuckles, and using the various weapons and being disqualified. It wasn't until NECW's 13th anniversary event, Bash 13 when Miss Sammi Lane mader her return to NECW after a 3 year long hiatus, revealing herself to be the mystery gift giver, alinging with her "sisters" Mistress Belmont and Nikki Valentine during a tag team match with Edwards and Kasey Ray. With that the numbers battle became too much for Edwards to cope with. At Double Intensity in Beverly, MA on November 9, 2013 with both Nikki Valentine and Miss Sammi Lane in her corner, Mistress Belmont was able to successfully defeat Edwards for her championship, ending her 1,190 day reign as WWW Champion, the longest title reign in company history.

Chaotic Wrestling (2007–2011)[edit]

Edwards began competing in Chaotic Wrestling in March 2007, losing matches to Tanya Lee throughout March and April.[27][28] After a match against Danny E. on May 18, Edwards then became the third member of The Blowout Boys along with Danny E. and Tommy T., and gained the nickname the "Double X Diva".[29][30] Her most memorable matches involved feuding with Nikki Roxx.[29]

The Blowout Boys briefly separated in September 2008, and Edwards remained with Danny while Tommy hired his girlfriend, Adriana, as his new manager.[31] On November 7 at Night of Chaos, Edwards defeated Adriana in a match where the Blowout Boys were handcuffed together at ringside.[32] On December 5, Edwards changed her ring name to Alexxis at the event where Tommy turned on Adriana and rejoined Edwards and Danny E.[33] The Blowout Boys' first match since they reunited was on February 6, 2009 at Cold Fury 8: Infinite Possibilities, when they defeated Fred Sampson and Psycho.[34]

On June 3, 2011, Edwards won the Chaotic Wrestling Women's Championship by defeating Nikki Roxx.[35] After three title defenses over Ivy, Mercedez KV and Nikki Roxx; Edwards lost the Women's Championship to Mercedez KV in an "I Quit" match on December 2.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2008, 2015)[edit]

Edwards initially appeared in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in the year of 2008 on the September 17th episode, under the name Mercedes Steele. Edwards faced Awesome Kong in a losing effort.[36]

Edwards appeared at the tapings of TNA's third Knockouts Knockdown PPV on February 15, 2015 (aired on July 1, 2015), under her real name and was defeated by Madison Rayne.[37]

Women Superstars Uncensored (2010–2013)[edit]

Inacio made her debut for Women Superstars Uncensored (WSU) on March 6, 2010 under the name Lexxus, teaming up with Amber against Tina San Antonio & Marti Belle, in a winning effort. They later renamed the team to The Boston Shore. She was on the winning team on June 26, 2010 in an eight-woman tag team match, defeating Jennifer Cruz, Monique & The Killer Babes.

On May 27, 2011 at a PWS event in Queens, New York, The Boston Shore defeated The Belle Saints to win the WSU Tag Team Championship for the first time due to the miscommunication of The Belle Saints and Jazz. On June 25, 2011 at the Uncensored Rumble, The Boston Shore made their first title defense against The Belle Saints in a rematch, in which The Boston Shore emerged victorious due to the distraction by Amber.[38] However, later in the night Lexxus joined the 4th annual Uncensored Rumble match at #1, and last eliminated Serena to win the match.[38]

Following her win, Lexxus got the right to face Mercedes Martinez for the WSU Championship.[38] She faced Martinez in a record-breaking 73-minute contest, the longest women's wrestling match in history, but was unsuccessful in winning the title. On February 13, Amber decided to quit pro wrestling due personal demons and issues. However, WSU decided to leave Lexxus as the co-champion until she finds herself a new partner. Lexxus would end up losing the tag team titles in March. In April, she entered the J-Cup but went to a double count-out with Alicia. On June 16, Lexxus won the Uncensored Rumble for the second consecutive year albeit through controversial means as the referee missed her elimination. On October 13, 2012 at Full Steam Ahead, Lexxus was granted a WSU Championship opportunity in a Triple Threat match against WSU Champion Jessicka Havok and Alicia. Lexxus was unsuccessful as Havok pinned Alicia to retain her title.[39]

Return to Impact Wrestling / Global Force Wrestling (2017)[edit]

On the February 9, 2017 episode of Impact Wrestling, Alisha made her TNA debut as a face, watching her husband in the crowd where Davey Richards pulled the referee out of the ring and cost her husband his match against Lashley. Alisha attempted to help her husband, only to be attacked by the returning Angelina Love. After the match, Alisha and Edwards were both attacked by Love and Richards.[40] at GFW/ Impact Wrestling's 15th Anniversary PPV Slammiversary, Alisha Edwards teamed up with her husband Eddie Edwards versus Davey Richards and Angelina Love in the first ever Mixed Tag Team Fullmetal Mayhem match on July 2nd, 2017 in a winning effort. This was Love's final match with TNA now known as GFW before departing the company, ending their feud between the couples.
