Professional wrestling career[edit]

Independent circuit (2018–2020)[edit]

On October 28, 2018, Grace unsuccessfully challenged Jazz for the NWA World Women's Championship on Women's Wrestling Revolution (WWR), as they main evented at the WWR's event WWR vs. The World.[6] On September 1, 2018, Grace participated in a 19-person over budget battle royale to determine the number one contender to the ROH World Championship on All In, being the only female in the match. Grace was able to eliminate Brian Cage, but was ultimately eliminated by Bully Ray.[7]

Impact Wrestling[edit]

Early years (2018–2020)[edit]

Grace at Impact Wrestling's Bash at the Brewery

On October 16, 2018, it was reported that Grace had signed a two-year deal with Impact Wrestling.[5] Grace made her Impact! debut on the November 8 episode, as she defeated Katarina.[8] On the January 3, 2019 episode of Impact!, Grace rescued Kiera Hogan as she was attacked by Allie and Su Yung.[9] That led into a tag team match at Homecoming, which they lost as Yung technically submitted Hogan.[10][11] With Rosemary's return to Impact, Grace teamed with her and Hogan to defeat Allie, Su Yung and The Undead Maid of Honor in the "Dark War". On the March 15 episode of Impact!, Grace defeated Tessa Blanchard to become the #1 contender for Taya Valkyrie's Impact Knockouts Championship.[12] As Grace battled Valkyrie for the Knockouts Championship at Against All Odds, which aired on March 29, Grace defeated Valkyrie by count-out, however, Valkyrie remains the champion.[13] Grace received another opportunity to become the #1 contender for Valkyrie's championship by defeating Madison Rayne.[14]

Knockouts Champion (2020–present)[edit]

Grace would have another opportunity for the Knockouts Championship at Hard to Kill against Taya Valkyrie and ODB, but Valkyrie retained when she covered ODB.[15] On January 18, 2020 (which aired on tape delay on February 11), Grace defeated Valkyrie to win the championship.[16][17] After successfully retaining the title against Havok on February 22 at Sacrifice,[18] she declared an open challenge with the Knockouts Championship on the line, which Madison Rayne answered by sending Miranda Alize and Lacey Ryan on the February 25 and March 10 episodes of Impact! respectively, but they failed to beat her.[19][20] On July 18 at Slammiversary, Grace lost the title to Deonna Purrazzo.[21] A rematch was scheduled on August 25 during the second night of Impact's Emergence special, in the first Knockouts 30-minute Iron man match in Impact history, where Grace lost to Purrazzo, two falls to one.[22]

Grace then entered into a rivalry with Tenille Dashwood when she returned on the September 1 episode of Impact!, interrupting her confrontation with Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo during her Black Tie Affair.[23] She lost their first match on the September 22 episode of Impact!,[24] but won the rematch the following week, culminating in a final match and win by Dashwood on October 3 at Victory Road.[25][26] At Turning Point, she teamed up with Dashwood in a losing effort against Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie.[27]

Personal life[edit]

On December 21, 2018, Parker announced her engagement to fellow professional wrestler Jonathan Gresham.[28] The couple married in September 2020.[29]
