From an early age, Janelle was interested in wrestling, and she even dropped out of highschool in the eleventh grade just to focus on wrestling.
Janelle debuted in the WWE on the third season of WWE NXT as the Rookie for WWE Diva Natalya. Every other match that Janelle was placed in, she won, and her 'big match' (as people claimed) that she won on NXT was a three on one handicap match with Pros LayCool (Michelle McCool and Layla) and The Miz.
Along with Krista Dumas, Chana Mizanin, and Nicole Cardona, Janelle advanced to the Final 4 Divas, and with Nicole's elimination from the competition, Janelle, Chana and Krista made it to the Final 3, but Janelle was eliminated.
After being eliminated from competition, she was called by Olivia DiBiase and Janelle was signed a contract to Smackdown, but a debut date is yet to be named.
Janelle is the younger sister of former WWE Superstar and current TNA Superstar Jeff Hardy, former WWE and former TNA Superstar Matt Hardy and current WWE Superstar Damien Hardy. She is the sister-in-law of TNA Co Knockout VP Alison Bernier and TNA Knockout Makayla Bernier and is the aunt of Sierra Hardy. During her run of NXT, Janelle became very close friends to Krista, where Krista's sister Lita even offered to trained her a little bit.
