Professional wrestling career[edit]

Bass debuted in Extreme Championship Wrestling during the first half of 1998. She aligned herself with Justin Credible, Chastity and Jason. She participated in feuds with Tommy Dreamer, Mikey Whipwreck and Beulah McGillicutty.

Bass soon joined the World Wrestling Federation, debuting as Sable's bodyguard at WrestleMania XV on March 28, 1999.[4] She became involved in an extended feud with Debra McMichael, which culminated in a mixed tag match pitting Bass and Val Venis against Jeff Jarrett and Debra at the 1999 WWF Over the Edge. Bass was then aligned with Venis until she accidentally whacked him with Jarrett's guitar after losing a bikini contest to Debra. The following week, she interfered in a match between Debra and Ivory, with Debra losing her Women's Championship due to Nicole's interference.

This led to a brief alliance between Bass and Ivory, which ended abruptly when Bass left the WWF and filed a lawsuit against the organization for sexual harassment, claiming she was sexually assaulted backstage by Steve Lombardi. In 2003 the case went to court and was ultimately dismissed.[5]

Bass continues to wrestle on the independent wrestling circuit. Bass also does bookings for public events and for personal training.[2]

Personal life[edit]

In 2006 Bass was hospitalized due to steroid-influenced pancreatitis.[1]

Bass married Richard "Bob" Fuchs in 1985.[1][6] Fuchs died in his sleep in 2013 at age 64.[7]
