World Wrestling Entertainment / WWE
Florida Championship Wrestling (2011–2012)
In November 2011, it was reported that Moinet had signed a contract with WWE and was assigned to their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). Moinet made her televised debut on the December 18 episode of FCW TV, appearing in an in-ring promo with Abraham Washington, and the following week she managed Washington during a tag team match. She also served as the ring announcer for FCW TV for several months. Changing her ring name to "Summer Rae", she was prevented from interfering in a match between Seth Rollins and Rae's new client Brad Maddox by the debuting Paige on the March 5 episode of FCW TV.
On the March 11 episode of FCW TV, Rae became the FCW General Manager. On the March 15 episode of FCW TV, Rae decided to deactivate the Queen of FCW crown, leaving Raquel Diaz as the last champion. Rae made her in-ring debut on April 6 at an FCW live event, where she lost to Sofia Cortez in an elimination triple threat match, which also involved Paige.
After the dissolution of FCW, Rae went on to become a ring announcer for the rebooted WWE NXT in 2012. Rae transitioned into an in-ring competitor on the January 30, 2013, episode of NXT when she attacked Paige due to her jealousy of Paige's popularity and success. On the February 13 episode of NXT, Paige suffered a shoulder injury while brawling with Rae, which Rae exploited later that episode in her first televised match to defeat Paige. After Paige continued to confront Rae, Rae finally faced off against Paige on the May 1 episode of NXT, where Paige emerged victorious despite Rae's pre-match attack.
Rae competed in the NXT Women's Championship tournament on the June 19 episode of NXT to crown the inaugural champion and defeated Sasha Banks in the first round, but lost to Emma in the semi-finals on July 10. Rae's post-match attack on Emma started a feud between them. Emma later defeated Rae in a dance-off to become the number one contender, but Rae retaliated by injuring Emma in the storyline, then issued a title challenge to the new NXT Women's Champion Paige, which she accepted. On the August 14 episode NXT, Paige defeated Rae to retain the title. For weeks, Rae began to influence Sasha Banks to make herself relevant, leading to Banks turning heel on the September 11 episode of NXT, by attacking NXT Women's Champion Paige. On the September 25 episode of NXT, Rae accompanied Sasha Banks to her match against Bayley, which Banks won. Summer then declared that her and Sasha would run the NXT Divas division. Banks and Rae, collectively known as the BFFs: Beautiful Fierce Females, faced Paige and Emma on the October 16 episode of NXT, where they emerged victorious after Rae pinned Paige. Rae and Banks continued to face Paige and Emma in singles matches, including aligning themselves with Charlotte. Rae continued her rivalry with Natalya, who had aligned herself with Bayley, losing to both in singles matches.
After a four-month absence from the show due to her activities on WWE's main roster, Rae returned on the June 6 episode of NXT, briefly distracting Charlotte during her match. After the match, Rae led an attack on Bayley, only to be seen off by Paige and Emma. On the June 26 episode of NXT, during a match with the debuting Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Sasha Banks backed away from Rae when reaching out for help, hinting at Rae's removal from the stable. The following week, Banks disbanded the BFFs in a backstage segment. The following week, Rae defeated Bayley in a number one contender's match, earning a NXT Women's Championship match against Charlotte, where Rae was unsuccessful in winning the title.
Fandango's dance partner (2013–2014)
Rae made her debut on WWE's main roster on the April 22, 2013, episode of Raw, as Fandango's dance partner and valet. Later that night, Chris Jericho attacked Fandango following a match and proceeded to dance with Rae. On the May 13 episode of Raw, Rae, along with Fandango, faced Chris Jericho and Dancing with the Stars competitor Edyta Sliwinska in a dance–off, but Fandango's dance was cut short by an apparent injury to Rae's ankle. However, Rae later revealed that her injury was a distraction to trap Jericho into Fandango's attack. On the October 25 episode of SmackDown, Rae got into a brawl with Natalya during a match between Fandango and The Great Khali, which set up a match for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, where Rae made her in-ring debut, teaming with Fandango to defeat Natalya and Khali, after Rae pinned Natalya. The following night, Rae made her singles debut in a rematch against Natalya, where she was defeated. At the Survivor Series pay-per-view, Rae participated in a seven-on-seven elimination tag team match, as her team took on the cast of Total Divas, where she was eliminated by Nikki Bella, before her team ultimately lost the match. A rematch took place the following night on Raw, where her team was once again defeated, with Rae being the last to be eliminated. On the December 19 episode of Superstars, Rae defeated Kaitlyn, garnering her first singles match victory on the main roster. In the beginning of 2014, Rae began a rivalry with Emma, and the two competed in several dance-off competitions on both Raw and SmackDown, which Emma would win. Rae would go on to lose to Emma in matches on the February 24 episode of Raw, and on the March 27 episode of Superstars. On April 6, Rae made her WrestleMania debut, competing at WrestleMania XXX in the 14-Diva Vickie Guerrero Invitational match for the WWE Divas Championship, which was won by defending champion AJ Lee.
On April 8, Fandango announced the end of his association with Rae on his Twitter account. On the April 11 episode of SmackDown, Fandango introduced Layla as his new dance partner. This storyline was put in place to allow Moinet time off television to film The Marine 4. Rae returned on the May 19 episode of Raw, confronting and kissing Fandango and attacking Layla before their match. Rae made her in-ring return on the following episode of Raw, in an losing effort to Eva Marie following the interference from Fandango and Layla. On the June 20 episode of SmackDown, Rae shared another kiss with Fandango backstage, which Layla would witness. In the following weeks, Rae and Layla assaulted each other backstage and at ringside during Fandango's matches, leading to a match between Rae and Layla at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, with Fandango as the special guest referee, which Layla would win.
Various alliances (2014–present)
On the July 6 episode of SmackDown, during a match between Fandango and Dolph Ziggler, Rae interfered and kissed Ziggler, causing Fandango to lose. On the July 11 episode of SmackDown, Rae attacked Layla during a match between Fandango and Adam Rose, which Fandango lost. This led to a rematch between Rae and Layla later that night, with Fandango once again as the special guest referee. At the beginning of the match, Layla and Rae kissed Fandango, and the match would end when both Rae and Layla attacked Fandango, ending Layla's relationship with him, and the two would dance together afterwards. Beginning at Battleground, Rae and Layla formed their own alliance and began distracting Fandango during his matches, costing him several matches. In their first match as a team, Rae and Layla, who dubbed themselves the Slayers, lost to Paige and AJ Lee on the July 18 episode of SmackDown. The Slayers won their first match as a team on the September 2 episode of Main Event, where they defeated Rosa Mendes and Natalya. At Survivor Series, Rae participated in a four-on-four elimination tag team match, where she was eliminated by Emma before her team ultimately lost the match. In January 2015, the Slayers quietly disbanded due to Layla undergoing surgery.
Upon the release of Rae's first film The Marine 4: Moving Target in April, she was disrespected by her co-star The Miz and as a result she allied herself with Miz's estranged personal assistant, Damien Sandow. On the April 20 episode of Raw, Rae helped Miz win a match against Sandow to retain the "Miz brand", having been working with Miz from the start.
In June, Rae became involved with Rusev's storyline with his former manager Lana and Dolph Ziggler, in which Rae formed a relationship with Rusev. On the June 29 episode of Raw, Rae would insult and slap Lana, which led to a fight between the two. On the July 6 episode of Raw, Rae and Rusev again came out to insult Lana and Ziggler. Rusev would then viciously attack Ziggler, hitting his throat with his crutch. It was subsequently announced that Ziggler had suffered a bruised trachea in the storyline. After weeks of confrontation between Lana and Rae, on the August 10 episode of Raw, Rusev ordered Rae to put Lana in his own submission move, The Accolade. Ziggler made his return on the August 17 episode of Raw, aiding Lana during a confrontation with Rusev and Rae. This altercation prompted a match between Ziggler and Rusev at SummerSlam, which ended in a double count–out due to interference from Lana and Rae. After the match, Lana and Ziggler brawled with Rusev and Rae.
Rae made her video game debut as a downloadable character in WWE 2K14. She has since appeared in WWE 2K15 as part of the main roster. In 2014, Rae was a part of the cast of Total Divas, a reality television show produced by WWE and E! from season 2 to season 3. Rae also starred in The Marine 4: Moving Target alongside The Miz.
